how many times do yall train each muslce a week?
how many times a week do you guys work each muscle? i've always trained everything once a week, but i have a little more time now and i feel i might be able to do more.

it depends alot on what you want to do dude. i like once a week. but when i had more time i was doing double splits.

chest in the AM. Tris abs and calves in the PM.
Back width in the AM. Thickness in PM
Quads in the AM. Hams, calves in the pm.

that kind of stuff. you've gotta think about what you specifically want. to gain - HARD once a week is nice.
you want to cut, do everything twice, 3 times a week. everything over 2 days, 6 on, 1 off (i burned out doing that though)

right now, i've got back, legs, chest, shoulders, arms. 5 on 2, off. i particularly like the order too, everything sort of flows nicely. if i decide i need to i can take a day off between legs and chest and move arms to saturday.

options. gotta have 'em.

Look at the journals and that will let you know what people do. I do full body 3 times a week.

Most of the time I train my larger muscle groups twice a week (but pretty short sessions, about 2 exercises each time). The smaller ones - it depends - maybe once a week or I leave them out.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 07:33 AM.
