Don't go to the gym every day

It's something people don't mention that much, but if you go to the gym every day, your immune system will get weakened. After a month of constant gym I get a flu, and surprisingly a friend of mine who's been going to a gym for years now mentioned having the same issue.

If you get sick often during winter, you might be putting too much strain on your body!

    You have to workout every day, even when you're sore, even when you don't want to.

    Train insane or stay the same.

        fricking moron do you think that all athletes are gymcels? most athletes literally never touched a bar in their entire lives. training for tennis and golf is a whole lot different than going the gym for muscle building.

        Athletes don't train for strength more than 3/week.
        Not only it's worthless to unoptimal, depending who you ask, but they also have MORE SHIT TO TRAIN.
        You've never trained for a sport or tried to get athletes to train, it's almost impossible.
        They gotta train technique for their sport, power, endurance, and then also comes strength.
        Strength takes a TON of energy and recovery, and doesn't give much in the short term, most athletes would rather train technique and get better for the match/meet/whatever right this week.
        Exception for actual weightlifters and powerlifters, they're better at it, but that's just because the barbell IS their sport.

          Real athletes train all day when they train. Guys who go to the gym for 1 to 2 hours usually don't have the free time to do a 8hr gym session like an athlete is required to do

            >8hrs gym sessions
            Only for endurance athletes, and they do weird stuff that nobody here would be caught dead doing.
            Everybody else keeps it under 1h for the big stuff, and then maybe a couple fun isos.
            Just like the regular guy going to the gym, but more intense and usually better coached.

              Ex gymnast here, we did train 6 days a week, 25 hours/week[...]

              25/6 is at least 4 hours per session. Still more time than most gym goers have.
              From what I know, a lot of teams especially during the off season will have 2 training sessions a day. One in the morning and another at night. So 8 hours isn't unrealistic.

                Are you talking general training (because that would make sense), or strictly resistance training?
                Because I have no idea what you would even do with 8h of resistance training, even giving ample rest times and nutrition, and I'd really like to know.

                General training. Which still includes a resistance gym session

            Yeah, but was it 6 days a week WITH THE BARBELL?
            Of course you trained almost every day, but skill training isn't strength training.
            If you were doing resistance training 6/week, please, I'm extremely curious and interested, could you describe your program?

              No barbell at all, but that was in the 90s. It's hard to draw a line between strength and skill. Most ring work requires both.

    We do talk about how rest days are important tho.
    All splits have rest days, SS has rest days... IDK, how did you get the idea that not having any rest day ever was good?

    Honestly, I think you might be on to something. I trained 10+ years going 3 times a week and I NEVER got sick. This year, I have been sick 5 times after august alone. And it hasnt just been a flu for 1 day and then Im good, no I have actually been sick. And pretty much the only difference in my life is that I started to train 6x a week.

    Its fricking ridiculous, basically like every 3 weeks Im sick for a week with terrible fever, muscle aches, sore throat and stuffed nose. Im taking all the same vitamins, same food, same everything I did for years and years.

    If you're serious about fitness you will go to the gym every day. If you aren't able to recover properly that means you're over-training and/or not getting enough rest and/or cooming too much.
    What is true is that you SHOULDN'T go all out every day, especially if you're doing lots of cardio. Never do cardio all out more than twice per week.

      Depends on what kind of split you do. I split the body into two and push very hard can’t do the same session more than every third day, sometimes I have to add an extra rest day. 2 big compounds 5x5 and a bunch of isolations with failure always at least the last set, usually 2-3 to failure per exercise and myoreps. (a lot of carbs both before and during is necessary)
      And it works very well. But then I’m in the gym about 2 hours which I doubt people doing 6-7 days are doing.

    I go 4 to 5 times a week. I'd like to only go 3, but I want to hit my goal body before I look to maintain it

    No, you're just not resting and refeeding properly. Eat more, sleep more Mr Skelly

    I do strength training every 2 weeks naturally and I’m still the strongest at the gym which is filled with roid trannies. Over training is just as bad as under training.

    You're dysgenic, sorry
    I go 6x a week and I don't remember the last time I had a cold
    Used to be sick all the time and had bronchitis as a child btw
    Lifting improves your immune system, muscle recovery requires inflammation after all
