    How often do you train each muscle group?

    I have always trained each muscle group twice a week. I have tried once a week every now and then, but never feel like I'm doing enough when I train only once a week. I know everyone will tell you soething different, but I just wanted to know what people here think is the best because I have so little time now, that lifting each muscle once a week wold be so much easier.

    try

    monday- legs

    tuesday-chest/front delts

    wednesday-off

    thursday-arms

    friday-back/rear delts

    sat-off

    sun-off

    i would also limit yourself to 3-4 sets for bulking + warmup

    you could also trow in traps 2x a week

    imo, i do 2 heavy and one light set, ie. for chest incline barbell, dumbell press and like a flye or cable.

    goodluck

    Monday - back & bis
    Tueday - quads
    Wednesday - chest & tris
    Thrusday - calves & shoulders
    Friday - Hamms

    I generally do it this way and I'm finished within forty-five minutes. I change type of exercises week to week and chage up rep, sets and weight ever 12 - 16 weeks...it works for me.

    Twice a week. Once a week was not enough for me. I do a 3 day split, rest for 1 day and start the 3 day split over again.
