Ok, so me and my freind have been lifting since last week, had 1 day of rest on saturday. we r trying to get used to lifting again is y we been doing it everyday in the morning. it is true that having a day of rest for different muscles gains faster than lifting everyday?
we been doing bench press, lateral, shoulders, chest, incline. what should we do different or more to get better results? we dont really wanna do much of legs..we r going for upper body results.
i wanna ask about gnc's amplified wheybolic extreme 60, i drink it after my workout, is it good stuff to use? they say its their best.
also my diet, i usually eat light in the morning like some mixed nuts, lunch/dinner is chicken and brown rice. what should i change?
wait are those the only exersizes you do and do you do them every day
if you have just started lifting for the first time ever I would suggest more than just one day of rest. Your body is already being shocked pretty hard so not giving it the rest it needs could hurt, especially during this crucial time of beginning.
we used to lift in high school, but that was about 2 yrs ago, we r trying to get used to what we could do
your doing back and bis not just chest and shoulders and tris right and your not doing the same exersizes every day right
we r, yeah we have been doing it everyday since last monday, didnt lift on saturday
im not as advanced as a lot of these members becausenive only been lifting for a year but you shouldnt do the same exersize or muscle group each day its not good your doing more harm then good take some time to let your muscle recouperate.
edit: that is called over training.

I think you should look through peoples posts and site articles and look at different weight training plans for beginners and start with one of those and progress from there.
Working your chest and shoulders every day will also slow down your progress, you need to give them a chance to recouperate. At the most you should be working them three days a week and twice a week would probably be even better. Your routine doesn't have to be complicated either; you could do your chest and shoulders on Monday and Thursday, then you could do something as simple as deadlifts and a rowing movement on Tuesday and Friday. That will at least give you some balance.
Look up Mark Rippetoe, and read what he has to say about life. Then start a 5x5 program. What your doing right now will give you diabetes.
