When it comes to getting the best results, do you really need to train for, say, five times a week? When would you say is the best time to train?

training frequency should be determined by your own recuperation time. to be safe i would never train a muscle group if it is still sore. this could lead to overtraining. this is my split (not on juice):
day 1: chest (total of 9-12 sets) tris (total of 6-9 sets)
day 2: back (total of 12-14 sets) bis (total of 6-9 sets)
day 3: legs (until i nearly puke)
day 4: Rest
day 5: Rest if chest and tris are still sore otherwise lift
day 6: Repeat, always repeat.

Sounds like Steele and myself train with the same level of "intensity"
I spit it up some more, as follows (like he said, you need to find what works for you):
Day 1: Chest and Calves
Day 2: Legs and Forearms
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Back and Shoulders
Day 5: Bis and Tris
Day 6: Rest
Day 7: Repeat
Sorry - I cant even remember my own schedule!!! (had to amend it)
This seems to work well while I'm on or off.

I personally prefer lower level of volume, i like:
Mon-Chest & Bis
Tues-Legs (Quads & Hams)
Thur-Shoulders, Calfes & Abs
Fri-Back & Tris
Sat & Sun - OFF
I find i get the best results from this kind of breakdown, i hvae tried others and that's what works for me, if i am bulking i will go just saturday off and then repeat after oneday of rest so besicly 2 on and 1 off...........XXLSOURCE CHECKS ONLY FOR USERS WITH OVER 100 POSTS.
