We have a bunch of new INFERNITES working out with us now and I am VERY excited about them!  They have all been super excited and fired up about the workouts and wanting to get better!  A question I get all the time from newer people is how often they should be working out.  The topic of over-training usually comes up as a concern, etc.  My normal response is this:  when you are new to the gym, I would suggest coming as often as you can.  There is still more learning of the movements rather than crushing workouts at this point.  Yes, you are sore and yes, you get tired during the workouts but its more survival rather than attack.  If you are truly unable to move and you are seriously wrecked, then give yourself a day.  Most times though, moving is the best thing for you at that time.  You actually end up feeling better after you are done stretching, sweating and moving.  Besides even if you bring the weight WAY down, FULL RANGE OF MOTION is how rehabilitate any injuries you may have.  This is something you will have to decide.  However once you get to the point where you are now "attacking" the workouts, then its time to make sure you are getting the right recuperation time.  The general rule of thumb is 3 days on and 1 day off.  This allows you to relax, not only your body but your mind, so that you can come back in and really get busy.  Remember the key to the making these workouts work correctly is to have very high intensity during the workouts.  If you are tired physically and mentally, then you may just be going through the motions.  Yet, we have those addicted folks who are here 6 days a week and seem to attack it just as hard every day.  The key is to listen to your body.  You make sure you are keeping the INTENSITY high and the workouts will work wonders for you!!  Let me know if you have other questions about this!!
