Will I get bigger by working out every day?

Recovery Time

When you're snoozing after your weight training program, you're actually working out. Your muscles grow when you're resting after your weight training workout, not during the strength training exercise itself. If you don't give yourself enough recovery time, you won't see results. This is why you should schedule your weight training routine so you train a muscle every other day or less often. Getting enough sleep is important too, as that is when growth hormone is at its highest.
