Exercising every day?
 
Is it OK to do a vigourous (sp?) workout everyday or should I be taking a day off to give my body a break?

If you mean weight-training, most muscle groups need a day off to recover. Calves and abs can be worked every day, lower back-twice a week.

For cardio, you can alternate hard and easy days, you don't have to take a day off. This is assuming you're recovering well, newbies may need to take days off.

Yes it is good to do dear. You can do this exercise daily. Do this exercise without any fear. Exercise is best for health so you can do all kind of exercises.

cardio can be done everyday. Especially if you switch up the kind you do. Muscle groups for weight or strength training should be given 48 hours to recover, except as was said abs and calves. So for me i break the body up in 4 groups and rotate this allows the 48 hours between muscle groups
1) legs (quads)
2) deltoids and triceps
3) hamstring and chest
4) back and biceps
and i do cardio and abs after every weight work out.
works for my but ymmv.

For the six pack abs, a person has not only strengthened their abs by performing exercises,

abdominal muscles.....

And avoid high fat, processed foods like spam. Why do I have this strange feeling that in a couple days you're going to add spam to a signature? Just know if you do, you'll be banned, just like the others.

Off topic, copy/paste, foreign translated spam. That about sums it up buckaroo! :rolleyes:
