I have been told to not do intense workouts everyday. By this I mean if you have Monday's as your intense leg workouts Tuesday can be a chill arm/chest work out and Wednesday can be a chill leg workout then thursday is an intense arm workout. And so on.
Of course you want to probably throw in some an workouts and full body days. But you do want to alternate so as to give your body rest. They also say to save a day for overall rest.
Also, a little tip, your body starts to lose muscle memory after about 3 days. This doesnt mean that you can't do anything anymore but that, say you benched 150 on Monday (up until then you hadn't been able to really do so) then if you don't use those muscles and let them rest too long you're going to have to work up to that 150 again.
I don't know if I answered your question. But I hope I helped at least a little.
