    I think you have to try it and see how your body reacts. Last week, I worked chest on Monday, and on wednesday i went with my bro to max out at his gym. I was in a pretty good mood after breaking my old max bench..didnt want to leave so i did chest again. I actually broke through mondays reps and increased the weight on my flat and decline bench. So i am going to try it again this week and see how it feels.As long as i keep progressing ill stay 2 times a week.

    I think you should wait at least 72 hrs between chest workouts if you're gonna be working it twice a week.

    Well..when i first started lifting i could lift chest 2 times a week but now with my high intensity training there is no way..I tried it about 2 years ago and i didnt gain a thing...didnt lose a thing...i tried Mon and Thurs..about a month into it i was recovered from my Mon. workout so i went back to my once a week thing..Let us know what your workout is and also how often do you change your program?

    I think you could get away with chest twice a week but definately need 72 to atleast 48 hr in between. 72 will be ideal though. But if you are using gear your recovery time will be better. Also if using Glutamine your recovery will be better things to consider. Try it out one week 72 hr between then the next 48 between and then reevaluate!
