Five to seven times per week, depending on how I feel, how much studying I have, and what I'm on at the time. Some people mentioned that I might be overtraining, but I get 8.5 hours of sleep per night and take in 6k calories per day... I think I'm the only person in the college who sleeps over 5 hours a night

What like lift weights and stuff? Once every 3 weeks roughyl. I don't like getting all sweaty and smelly. It's gross really.

i started 3 days per week almost 2 years ago and put on alot of size. went from 220 area (stalled there after years of training) to 245 now.
i train real heavy and intense ---i also feel like training like this i train harder.
instead of saying man i got to train again and not wanting to go to gym i cant wait to train cause been a couple of days. this way i hit it harder and i think in my mind every time i train i grow

No less than 5 and always 1 day off.
My current split(I switch it up every month):
Incorporate abs on diff. days(still don't do them as much as I should)

Sun - legs
Mon - back, rear delts, traps
Tues - chest, shoulders
Wed - arms
Guess I should explain the shoulder split -- I do "pull" shoulder exercises on back day, and "push" on chest day. Makes it a lot easier on my injury-prone shoulders.
And on arm day I throw in some calves and some ab work.

Alternating Heavy (hypertrophy), medium (hypertophy and strength) and light (strength). Depending on the bodypart, Heavy days get 5-6 days of rest, Medium days get 4-5, and light get 3-4.
Heavy is Wholistic training useing giant-sets super seted for one HUGE set. First set is heavy for 2-3 reps followed by a shaping movement for 10-12 then a fiishing movement for 40 reps. Then repeated. For Exa,ple a chest day would be Bench Press for 2-3 reps... run over to Dumbell Press for 10-12... then run over to cross-overs for 40 then run back over to bench press again and repeat it all over again...
Medium is basic POF split. A compound movement pyramid set followed by a basic shaping and contraction movement and then a finishing movement. Sometimes working in drop sets.
Light is a GVT style strength day. A basic 10 sets of 10 reps. Sometimes I do 10 sets of less reps (like 10 sets of 5 reps). GVT days are a good way to monitor srength gains.
This is a pretty complicated split Not a Back on Monday, Tris on Tuesday type. I plan to run it another 6 weeks or so... it's tailored for my uncanny rise of androgens and my current abnormal anabolic situation

You think you guys could critique this for me, since in a couple weeks I'll be back on some gear and I was thinking about doing maybe two workouts in a day.

5 days a week (and feeling good with this new routine)
monday - chest
tuesday - back
wednesday - arms
thursday - legs (currently injured .)
friday - shoulders
sat/sun - off
This is something I started new over the summer, feels great working mon-fri. Before it was 3 days a week, but I find you put too much groups into one day, and feel too tired come the next exercise. One muscle group a day is perfect!!!

In maintenance mode: every-other-day alternating between upper body/lower body - on each workout I pick one muscle to focus hard on.
In gaining mode:
Saturday - pecs, delts, ant delts, tri's, upper traps
Monday - legs and glutes
Wednesday - bi's, traps, lats, post delts, forearms
In bomb mode:
Sat - chest
Sun - thighs, butt
Mon - back, lats
Tue - shoulders, tri's
Wed - calves
Thur - arms
Fri - off
I use a hollistic training approach - I start off with light weights and use slow steady motion for high repetitions using prefect form - all strength. One or two sets and then i move the weight up and use good form and slow motions but when my muscles get tired at the end of the set I switch to power to shove up a few more. Then I bump the weights up again and use almost pure power sloppy form to shove up all the reps I can. The goal of the first few sets is to get more and more repetitions. The goal of the last few sets is to use heavier and heavier weights. It creates a balance of strength and power.
