    I'm going to try the same bodyparts twice a week. I use to do once based off magazines. But, most of those are for size. I read how Bruce Lee got ripped doing 3 and some stuff daily. So we'll see.

    So you don't believe in overdoing it?

    Honestly, I try to do the same body parts twice a week. I don't always get there, time is always a factor. Ah-nold always said that you need to do twice a week and to this day, no one has won more mr. Olympia titles. And that was before guys were freakishly huge and had all these supplements. He must have known something. :dontknow:

    I usually only lift Monday-Friday. Rest on weekends.

    I think it depends on the person....dorian yates(remember him?) said the exact opposite. I have a hard time doing the same body parts twice a week...but I'm skinny, so it tears me down

    I think it depends on what your goals are, keeping fit/cardio health or just gaining size which does not have much to do with being healthy.

    Keep on doing more and more until you feel like you're overtraining. Cut back a little and you got it!
