Not a problem, mate.
Different things work for different people, dependant upon a number of factors, biological, mental and environmental. But I've found this is what works best for me, and you'll find a running trend that works with everyone, such as the compund lifts being the best weight lift movements.
Best of luck with all you do, mate.
I do an hours weights workout at the gym 6 times a week, but always stretch properly and I feel as quick and flexible as ever. I also do 15 minutes of cardio before plus 15 minutes on the bag after. Also cycle 7 miles a day, plus MMA twice a week.
I think aslong as you're not just concentrating on bodybuilding and add some cardio in aswell as the stretching as Dan mentioned you'll have no problem.
Bodybuilding is weight training, but not all weight training is bodybuilding.
You can train weights and get bigger and stronger without "bodybuilding"
Not just random big, like strongmen powerlifters, or lesnar, i want definition as well.
I guess the sat counts as a bit of a rest as you're not doing anything in the pm but still a FULL rest day somewhere in there wouldnt hurt imo.
Maybe have sat off completely especially as fri looks to be the most intense session ( although I guess if the sat cardio was light for active recovery then it would be fine ).
Just a thought.
No one here do burger king and sexy time?
I have sexy time with burger - does that count fren?

The purpose of 24hours rest is to allow the smooth and cardiac muscles to recover, as they get worked every time you train. They need to recover like any muscles.
Saying that, I train every day, but have minimum 24hours between sessions at least once a week, (normally sat or sunday, training first thing sat and last thing sun), and periodise my training with generally two week's hard work, one week recover...
Just some thoughts for you...
