All my buddies tell me I should be spending at least 2-3 hours in the weight room a day. I only have enough time to spend about an hour working out and I was wondering if I am missing out on progress because of this.

It's quality not quantity, buddy. If you only workout for an hour and do all your lifts properly, and you train hard, you will get more results than your buddies who are OVERTRAINING their muscles. Just make sure you are working out properly and you will be fine.

I was told that weight training every day is not healthy for your muscles. Is every other day better in order to give your muscles time to recover and re-shape?

It is better for your muscles to excersize every other day because they have a day to recov before ripping them apart again, to make them stronger.

Dell, I hope you don't listen to your buddies. Your body cannot take a 2-3 hour per day weight training routine, unless your doing some heavy eating, supplementing, and steroids. If your doing those things you're certainly not interested in your health. Don't listen to them. You should keep any weight training routine under 1 hour. After that your body becomes catabolic, unless your consuming an excess amount of balanced calories. What that means is that your body actually breaks down your muscles to give you the energy to build new ones, which would be counter-productive. After that hour if you want you can do some sort of cardio or you could do cardio on your off days. Good Luck.

MKoll-
Don't be in too big of a hurry to build big muscles, you're still young. Make sure that when you're doing your bicep curls that you aren't swinging your body back and forth to use momentum. Ask your school Phys Ed teacher for a couple exercises to do some other LIGHT work with those 3kg dumbells - it would be a good idea to strengthen the larger muscle groups (chest, back, shoulders) before you concentrate on your arms. Regarding your situps, just be sure that you are not pulling on your head on the way up because this can hurt your neck. There are hundreds of different exercises to strengthen your abs, you just have to be careful that you do them correctly. Do a little searching on the internet and you should be able to find some exercises... just remember this: if it feels too easy, do it SLOWER until it burns burns burns - that burn means you're going to be stronger the next time you do it.

Workout with heavy weights in short intense workouts allowing plenty of recovery time in between workouts.

man your buddies must be little runts.

you cannot gain decent muscle size training everyday

many of the professional bodybuilders and powerlifters train only up to 4 times a week..

my advice is to learn from the big people they have done it before so they can tell you what to do and what not to do.

thats what i did

dont listen to your buddies they dont know what they are on about

I used to train 5-6 days a week lifting weights and cardio. I have been unable to do so for about 1 year. I am back in the gym and 15 pounds heavier. Will I be able to get back into shape faster since I was in great shape before. Can I build up my mucsles again quickly or will it be a long journey?

less means more and more means less when it comes to progress in the gym. do short but intense workouts, like static contraction training, HIT, etc.

I was wondering whether it is bad to do a lot of cardio while lifting weights. I enjoy doing a lot of activities that require cardio such as running and mountain biking but i also want to bulk up.

I was wondering whether or not it is a bad thing to do a complete upper body workout one day along with some cardio...then a complete lower body workout the next day with some cardio. This is how I work out. Upper then lower every day of the week.
