I'm currently following this bodybuilding workout routine :
- Day 1 : Legs/Abs
- Day 2 : Upper body
6 days a week, with 1 rest day.
This has been nice for the past two months (I'm a beginner) but now, I have DOMS every day and when I have to workout legs and abs, I still have DOMS on legs and abs, same for upper body, even after the rest day.
Is it bad to always have DOMS and never train "fresh" muscles ? Is it an indicator that shows my muscles need more rest ? Should I change to a split routine ?
PS : I'd like to continue 6 days a week because I stopped smoking and working out really helps me not to smoke, it's way harder on rest day.
I edited the question in order to be more specific on having DOMS everyday, always and never train "fresh" muscles. I don't think this is a duplicate now.
