    I all depends on you. Some people respond better to once a week some people do better with 2x. I've tried both and now only use 2x a week once in a while to change it up and shock my system.

    I think I may try twice a week on some of my weaker BP's. I think shocking is probably a good idea too. Well put Ron!

    I now work my "weak" parts 2 times a week, but WELL spaced.

    It looks like this:

    Mon: Chest + tris + forearms
    Tues: Shoulders + bis
    Wed: Off
    Thu: Leg day + abs
    Fri: Back + tris + forearms (and a little bis)
    weekend off

    As you may guess, my weak spot is my arms. Best results I've had is 2x a week like this, so there is always 3-4 days before they are repeated so they can recuperate.

    Works for me

    Ideally i would like to train each bodypart as often as possible. Key terms being 'as possible'. I use how the week went by as far as sleeping and diet factor that in with how the muscle feels and can usually make an educated guess wether i would be able to train that muscle again without risking overtraining. Again im shooting for as often as possible.
