    When establishing a basic routine, is it neccessary to have days that you are completely "off"? Days that you don't even do cardio on?

    This is the routine i'll be following this summer, but i'm still doing revisions on it:

    Mon - Pecs/Tris
    Tues - Legs
    Wed - HIIT + Abs
    Thurs - Bis/Fores
    Fri - Shoulders/Back
    Sat - HIIT + Abs
    Sun - HIIT

    In most of the articles ive read on interval training it says that you should do HIIT 3+ times a week, and on your non weight training days.

    I definitely want to incorporate running into my routine but don't know the best way of going about it.

    So i guess i'm asking is it essential to have days completely off? And when's the best time to do running (yes i know it's been beaten to death...)?

    personally, if i don't take days off i just burn myself out and end up having to take even more time off.
