Your body is broken down in the gym, built at night when you sleep. Rest is as important for maximizing growth as your training intensity. Without ample rest your body won't be able to recuperate one muscle group before you start breaking down another. I personally hit the gym 4 days a week (2 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 2 days off). You can move your days off around depending on your schedule and can even cut the extra weekend day off out if you feel that you can handle the extra load. Just watch you body for signs of fatigue or over-training and back off if need be. In this case, there can be such a thing as "too much of a good thing".
