That's mostly just a bodybuilding myth (I lift 2 days on, 1 day off, BTW), based on a different method of training, which is split- and failuretraining. You'll see that weightlifters do different variations of the same exercises for several days in a row. The key is mostly not lifting to what is classified as "failure" in the bodybuilding world, which is just pumping out repetitions on a certain exercise till you can't do anymore, for almost every set.

Hehehe, what are your sources for this statement?
They're not a very necessary movement in any athletes strength program, but saying that they are "bad for you" is pretty farfetched, huh?
