I've been lifting (and proper dieting which has always been my downfall when trying to bulk) for about 2 months now without slacking off. I've never been skinny, but never huge thanks genetics+sport all my life. I'm sitting at about 170lbs and 5ft 7, not sure on my body fat it's not a lot though. I'm seeing some clear improvements not only with how much I am lifting compared to when I started but I'm also seeing improvements with my physique. Anyway, my problem is now all I want to do is lift, I know about recovery time etc, and I do feel as though my sessions are quality. Is the only way to finding out how much is too much by experimenting yourself? Or is there some generalized rule that you shouldn't do: e.g back 2 days in a row? Probably a stupid question. While I'm here and it's a similar topic, the next 6 weeks for me will be a bit hectic, and I may only have time to lift Fri/Sat/Sun. It just feels to me like maybe 4 days rest per week is too much? Should I smash it out on those 3 days, or just keep it up normally and just hope I don't regress over those 6 weeks?
