    This should be in the workout forum. But different methods work differently for each person. You can trian your chest twice a week. I personally train mine once a week, that works best for me. You just have to find what works best for you.

    No it won't hurt your gains at all.

    As long as your muscle group is FULLY recovered, you can hit it more than once a week. A lot of times, if you are on a program trying to increase your strength in a specific lift (i.e. benchpress), you will hit it multiple times per week. However, with many of such programs, you will do less sets/weight on other body parts in order to maximize what you can do on bench. Personally, my chest seems to stay sore forever, so it is tough for me to hit more than once a week, but there are plenty of people who hit it real hard one day and "touch up" on another, or that just hit it twice a week. It is funny, though, so many people want to bench as often as possible, yet there aren't too many out there just figuring out ways to do get an extra leg day in there!! BTW, if you are trying to add a lot of weight to your bench press for some reason, I do reccomend the EAS program "How to add 50lbs to your BP." I would not do it currently because it does have its shortcoming (less sets for other body parts, no dead lifts included in program, etc), but I've done it a few times and saw great increases in my strength on bench-- and was able to hit chest every Monday and Friday without overtraining the muscle.

    Twice a week was great for me, lots of strength gains, even when coming off a cycle. My shoulders didn't like it too much but weights went up each workout. You can't do a high volume chest workout if you are going to up the frequency though b/c that will lead to over training. I am currently doing chest 3x every 9 days, but only doing 1 set to failure each chest day.
