That all depends on you.if 3 times a week works best then go three times a week if once id better do them once...I work mine out once a week, but I alsohave injured my shoulders so im afraid to do a lot to them...its really all on you...3 times a week sounds a lot though, they don't grow when you lift, they grow when you rest so give them time to heal don't overwork them

Rest as much as you need to train optimally.

You could probably start out 3x a week if you're a straight up beginner but as you progress into heavier weights that will decrease.

Also depends a lot if you're on a surplus or deficit diet... or if you're using gear or not...

I am writing some of the best shoulder exercises:
1. Seated Dumbbell Presses
2. Dumbell Side Raise
3. Upright Barbell Rows
4. Dumbbell Shrugs
If you want to do it once a week then do it with intensity otherwise 3 days are also good.

military press
upright rows
lateral raises
front raises
reverse flies

I would train shoulders like any other muscle. About once per week with about 3 exercises is what I do. They also get hit from other pressing exercises like bench press and dips so they get more than just direct exercises. There isn't one best routine....make sure to switch your exercises and reps etc so your muscles are always adapting and growing. A good rule is make a switch about every 4 weeks. Hope that helps!
