When I joined a gym, I was told that lifting weights every day would cause injury and that muscles needed time to repair and rebuild. But whenever an actor is interviewed about his Hollywood blockbuster, he talks about training for four hours every day. What's the deal?

I've been lifting for about a year, usually every other day. A good workout definitely requires a day to recuperate. So how do stars like Tobey Maguire
, Linda Hamilton
, etc. manage to bulk up in a matter of weeks? How do they lift every day without injury? Aside from pharmaceutical aid, do $1,200-an-hour personal trainers have a secret?
