    hit each muscle once or twice per week

    what have you guys seen most success with? Completely trashing a muscle group once every 7 days or split the sets between two days in the training cycle?

    i always did once a week and saw pretty good gains but recently ive started doing twice and my gains skyrocketed. i do back/bi, chest/tri, legs/shoulders, then repeat. but i do change the exercises and rep ranges.

    You can get away with twice a week providing you have adequate rest and nutrition and pick your exercises and loading patterns carefully! Don't go balls out all the time and you should be fine!

    i only have one rest day (sunday). i usually do 8 exercises total 5 or 6 for back and chest and 2 or 3 for bi and tri. or ill split it up and do 4 exercises for legs and shoulders each.

    but as the above poster said, my rest during the day/night is great, my diet is perfect and my routine is one i know my body can take

    depends on your rep range and number of sets i dont think you can train the same muscles twice a week if your doing high reps and high sets
