Default Do I have enough rest?

My routine is training 3 days for different body parts and rest the 4th day. From what I read I may not have enough rest. I tried to rest 4th and 5th day, then on 6th day as I train I feel kind of too relaxed muscle and a little loss of strenth. Can anyone advise? Thanks.

if you feel the urge to rest some more, just do it.
id say 2 days of weight training should be followed by one rest day.

^ Exactly.

Only you know how you feel and if you feel like you're getting run down or can handle more.

Before anyone can help one would ned to know at least the following:

what is your current nutrition?
how many hours of sleep do you get on average every night?
what is your current training routine?
how many years have you been lifting? are you a beginer, intermediate?
are you currently using any supplements?
are you using intensity techiniques?
whens the last time you did an unloading period?
what split are you using?

to answer your question these should be addressed first?

Like iron_worker said only you knows how much your body needs rest and workput routine. In my opnion 3 days workout routine then rest is a good thing. Few days ago Wieder's complete bodybuilding guide was online and i downloaded it many useful things and tips including the workout routines. He introduce 2 routines and speciially said that both the professional as well as beginners can follow this routine.
1. 3 days workout 4th day rest and again 3 days workout.
2. 4 days workout and 5th day rest and again from 6th day keep doing working out.
Thats what he called it the best way and the best routine to buildup your muscle.
Now you see you are giving too much rest to your body so in my opnion you are giving enough rest to your body because evey muscle you workout needs only 24 -48 hours to recover after recovering its ready to squeeze ready to workout again. So you knows better about your body then others. Suits yourself ^_^
