Does leg day every day theory works ?

Does leg day every day theory works ?
If I work out every day on my legs will that work in building mass with proper nutrition ?

    Too board of a question.

    Does it work for a 18 year old male? A 87 year old female with arthritis,? A 30 year old male who has bodybuilding aspirations? A 27 year old female who is cycling 5 days a week...

    In general the majority of people it's not needed and wouldn't be efficient for the time training compared to lesser programs.

    It is indeed a broad question, but let's say we're talking about a healthy human being within an age range that would allow you to perform pretty well at the gym injury free. It's possible to train legs every day; however, you have to be mindful about fatigue management, intensity, and overall volume. If you are to squat 315 lb for 3 sets of 8, it would be a daunting feat to accomplish as the intensity (315 lbs), the overall volume (315lbsX3setsX8rep) and frequency (6 days, assuming you rest at least one day) are way to high, you won't recover completely and you may even injure yourself.

    If you manage fatigue quite well, you are able to get away with it.

    There's a program out there called squat every day. The guy's name is escaping me and I don't feel like googling it. I've heard/read decent things about it

    It probably isn't optimal, but I'm sure it can be done. Legs, like abs, can take a lot of volume. Again, probably not optimal.

    I suspect that if you squat heavy, which will bring the best results, you won't be able to squat every day.
    My son did the Smolov, 12-week, squatting routine. It is absolutely brutal. It produced great results for him. But even that routine is only three-four days a week.

    There's lots of things that produce great results... but 12 weeks isn't a large enough sample size... and when you start talking about the guys and gals that have been consistently at the top of the powerlifting and strongman world you again run into the problem of sample size...

    A quality every day program will show consistent sustained results. Look at the top competitors.
    A quality every other day program will show consistent sustained results. Look at the top competitors.

    At the end of the day, it depends on how much time out of your week you're willing/able to commit

    Cory Gregory is the guy with the squat every day program. While it gets results, he states up front it's not easy, especially the mental aspect

    Not to nitpick... but Cory Gregory did not come up with the concept of squatting every day. He brought the concept to Bodybuilding.com platform and "popularized" it.

    I didn't know or care who invented it, I just knew i remembered hearing about it but couldn't remember the name. I guess there was some Broz guy, who has been doing that for quite some time, long before Gregory popularized it.

    Yes, it works. It needs to be programmed correctly ofc. The volume and intensity will have to vary throughout the week.
