    Recovery Time Help

    I am confused as to the amount of recovery time needed after a pretty solid workout. I am try to bulk right now, but I enjoy being in the gym, so I am doing a 6 day a week split, hitting every boyd part twice a week. Day 1 Chest/Tris/Abs, Day 2 Bis/Back/Shoulders, day 3 Legs. Is this overtraining? My friend thinks that I won't be maximizing my gains by training so often, but I am getting 72hrs rest between workouts. Thanks alot.

    recovery depends on a lot of things, like diet, rest etc.
    Milk is the best Supplement

    72 hours is about right, generally speaking. However, based on your lifestyle (sleep, stress, work, play) and your diet, the amount of necessary recovery time can be longer.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
