    What exactly is your schedule? I mean, do you workout everything 5 or 6 times a week, or is one day legs, one day arms, etc? Give a little more info

    I dunno about the double session...I wouldn't do it though.

    As long as you arn't working out EVERY muscle group that many times a week then i don't see a problem. Once or twice a week for each muscle group is fine..

    Double sessions may be alittle to much, but you can workout 5 days a week with full recovery... I do it.

    I do upper body M W F and lower T TH. I work it out so that each muscle group has 48 hours between each training session, more then enough IMO.

    Well, I have ALOT more upper body lifts that I do compared to lower body, around 2.5x more. So I just hit the extra .5 ones as well as a little active rest.
