    Hitting a muscle per week

    Since ill be startin a cycle i was wonderin if i would yeild more gains by hitting a muscle twice a week rather than once since the gear will allow me to heal alot faster than normal? What u all think??

    once a week is great for most natural bb's.... alot will go twice a week when on a cycle.. i stick to hitting every part 5-6 times a week on a cycle..

    BUMP....I would also like to know how many dudes do two body parts when cycling....don't the muscles need 48 hours to recoup? Wouldn't this be over training?

    Smaller muscle groups need less time to recuperate than larger ones. Small muscles like bi's, tri's, calves, and abs only need like 24 hrs, and groups like lats, pecs, and quads need 48 hrs while the spinae erectors of the back need like 10 days. This is for a natural BB tho.

    Day one would look something like this

    barbel rows as heavy as possible 4 sets
    chins 4 sets
    some chest exercise 4 sets
    Light shoulder exercise. like side raises 3 sets
    triceps 4 sets
    biceps 3 sets

    day 2
    I was hurt so I could only do squats for my lower body then after 4 sets of squats I threw in some upper body exercises so it was basicly a upper body 3 times a week routine.

    day 3
    flyes 4 sets
    dips 4 sets
    heavy chest pressing exercise 3 sets
    back exercise 4 sets
    another lat exercise 3-4 sets
    triceps 3-4 sets
    biceps 3-4 sets

    I made sure I didnt workout more then one hour. It gave me incredible results in lat strenght. Barbell rows went from 90kg to 125kg. Also my db chest press went from the 40kg dumbells to 49,5kg dumbells for 6 reps. I noticed growth everywhere except legs offcourse.
