You can: However, for your exercising to be effective you need to be able to recover from the exercise. Otherwise, the effectiveness of each workout is diminished.

Exercise is: always good, provided your doc says you do not have any health conditions that prevent it. Some folks do a day on and day off cycle. Whatever fits your life and keeps you exercising is best. Peace and good health.
