If you're working out properly, your muscles should be sore afterwards and will need a couple of days to fully recover so you can lift more weight the next round. That's why you're only supposed to work out every few days. That being said, don't forget that you're still allowed to do activities that are considered 'physical recreation', e.g. stuff you do for fun like tennis, jogging, martial arts, rock climbing, etc...Maybe you outta do something like that on your 'off' days to burn off that extra energy.
Remember, muscle tissue heals more slowly than other parts of your body. According to biological data, the majority of people only need to work out ONCE a week, but you can work out up to 3 times per week. If you're following Occam's protocol, you should start by working out every 3 days for the first 2 weeks (that's 2-3x a week, e.g. Sun/Wed/Sat), and then every 4 days after that.
Wow, I had the complete opposite effect. When I first started, it took me longer than 2 days between workouts for my muscles to fully recover. More like 3. I wasn't out of shape, but I did go buckwild at the gym during those first few workouts. If you push yourself until you're 'wasted', you shouldn't need more than twice a week. If not, add more weight!
