6 days a week is a recipe for burn-out. You would be better off starting with 3 days a week, doing something that you enjoy and that is sustainable. Let your body use the other days to heal and relax. Once you have gotten into a 3-day-a-week habit, you can add something else. For instance, you might decide you want to start running at the local track M,W and F. Once you've gotten accustomed to that, you can add resistance bands on three of the days when you are not running. Or you could take a zumba class one day, and a yoga class another, or swim laps if you belong to the Y or a gym with a pool.
It is not a good idea to do the same exercise, or exercises that use the same muscles every day. Your body needs time to rest and repair, which is why ST programs frequently have you doing arms one day and legs the next.
