    days to train per week

    how many days do you all train per week? i train 5. seems like all the routines on this site are 3 a week arent they? seems dumb to me seeing as 95% of good bodybuilders train at least 5 days a week.

    I train 4 days. I wish I could do 5 days but my schedule won't allow it.
    What is your definition of a good bodybuilder?
    If at first you don't succeed, take 5 lbs. off and try again.

    Alot of the famous ones took roids at one point in their training also, but that doesn't make ME want to do it.

    I would think a good bodybuilder would be someone who trains hard, eats right, and is committed to our sport. I don't consider myself a big guy but I do consider myself a good bodybuilder just like a lot of people at WBB. (IMO)

    The number of days you split your workout into doesn't dictate level of commitment..and making a comment like that shows your ignorance. (or maybe you prefer "your dumbness")

    I make the best gains on a 3 days week schedule.

    I do 3 and make gains. Maybe you'd make better gains doing 5 and not 3...who knows. We aren't you.

    I'm going to go make my sacrifice to the bodybuilding gods now.

    And we don't read flex ( i presume) or care about the way 95% of the professional bodybuilders train. Like someone said, be shure to take all the drugs they take(nubain has to be fun!!), do the things they do to get the drugs, etc....

    As I get back into lifting again, I will be employing a 3 day routine. Why not 5? Why not 1? Well, in the past I have worked out on a 5 day a week routine, and found that I wasn't making much in the way of gains, because I was overtraining at the time. I have also used a once a week routine in the past and made very nice gains that way, but I had to work my entire body at one time, and I would much rather spread it over a 3 day period. And yes, I could spread it over a 5 period, but I don't want to go to the gym that much.

    How often is Mason hitting a bodypart? Once every week or so?

    A couple years ago, when I was even less knowledgable then I am now(if it's possible), I trained 5 days a week. I gained almost nothing from it. They wbb training schedule uses 3 days a week schedule, one body part per day. However, at least the way I understand it, they are compound excercises so you use multiple muscles. I know after my chest/back day, 2 days later my chest and back felt the work the most, but I could still feel that my triceps worked slightly. In the words of someone wise on this message board, less is more. Try out the 3 day workout, see how it works out for you. If it doesn't work, try out a 4 or 5 day workout. People's genetics are different, pro bodybuilders probably have little recovery time for their muscles, most people probably have slower recovery time then pro BB's.
