Hey everyone, I am trying to build muscle so I have been working out regularly doing many different things. I want to work out today but I don't know what I should do because I did do intense squats, deadlifts, lunges, etc. yesterday. I try not to have a strict rest day... I would rather walk at least 5 miles, or bike, or run, or go to yoga. What do you think?

I'm female, 5'6" and 119 pounds. My main goals are upper-body strength, but I am still trying to build my entire body.

this was what I did all week:

Saturday: 2 mile run, pull-ups, push-ups, Abs.
Sunday: 3 mile power walk, 1 hour of stretching
Monday: 1.5 hour yoga class, 2 mile run, Gym (arms and back)
Tuesday: 12 mile bike ride, 1.5 hour yoga class
Wednesday: 3 mile run, 3 mile bike, 2 hour gym session (pull-ups, push-ups, dumbbells, arms and back)
Thursday: main rest day (2 mile walk)
Friday: 3 mile run
Saturday: 3 mile run (abs + legs)

Now technically, i COULD do arms today... but i really ripped them up on wednesday so I wanted to wait until tomorrow. so my question is.. what kind of stuff can I do today, or on days where I'm still sore in my arms or legs?

everything looks good, i would increase one of the 3 mile runs to 5. that way you have a short day, 2 medium days, and a long day. every few weeks adding a mile to your long day. always keeping the 2 mile day the same, and add .5 miles to one 3 mile day every 2 weeks.

Hi, I think this is more better: 3 day work 1 day rest, again and again!

and the mail question, why you want to build the muscle? you must decide yourself. you need power or muscle?
if you have any doubt, look on it : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Lee
