Default Training schedule that worked for you

What is the training schedule that worked best for you.
What i mean is, do you only train 3 times a week, 6 times a week ... more?

I used to train monday to Saturday, hitting twice a week every muscle, i gain kind of solid results, could be better if i took best care of my diet.

I like to work around the 4 major lifts, Monday/Thursday-squats/military press, Tuesday/Friday-deadlift/bench press, the other 3 days are rest or cardio depending on my mood

In my training sometimes i think i hit too much, not feeling overtraining but i guess i don't rest enought for the intenity of the training.
Maybe i should lower the number of exercices.
Usually i do 4 exercices for the muscle group, maybe i should lower to 3 doing 15,12,10,8,6 increasing wheight.

Im saying this because if hit twice a week and i don't rest between, than 6 exercices a week for muscle group should be enought, except for legs because im a strong beliver that the legs must train more and harder than any other muscle group

How many sets per exercise? If you are doing 5 sets per exercise, you are doing 40 sets per muscle group per week. I have gotten pretty nice results with just 15 sets per muscle group per week so you may be doing too much. Everybody is different though so don't take it too close to heart.

I'm doing 5 sets 51 repetitions.

But at this time I'm working out on resistance so I'm doing 3 sets of 20 repetitions with 30sec to 45sec of rest between

Monday - Bench
Tuesday - Deadlift

Thursday - Military Press
Friday - Squats

Each day focuses on one of the big lifts with 1 or 2 accessory movements to support it. Keep it simple.
