    I am currently training each body part every 6 days. What do you think of that?

    I would like to hear how frequent you guys are training each body part...

    I only train 5 days a week. Here's my spit. It works really well.

    Mon - Chest
    Tue - Back
    Wed - Legs
    Thu - Shoulders
    Fri - Arms
    Sat - Rest
    Sun - Rest

    This split has helped me get past MANY a plateau. I used to train 6 days out of seven, but found I wasn't getting enough rest, and therefore not enough time for my muscles to grow. I could see 6 days a week being beneficial to someone looking to tone up or stay cut, but for mass building and muscle growth, rest is the key.

    Every few months I switch between training each bodypart once a week to training each body part twice a week, or vice versa.

    I think that training each bodypart once a week is a pretty solid routine to follow. I also train one muscle a week, usually on the weekdays, but i may occasionally blast a muscle twice a week.

    I use a 3 day split, train each muscle once a week.
    You may be able to train muscles more than once a week if your diet, rest and genetics are right.

    This is my routine,
    Mon: Chest/Back
    Tues: Legs/Cardio
    Weds: Arms/Shoulders
    Thurs: Off
    Fri: Legs/Cardio
    Sat: LIGHT-Shoulders/Arms/Back
    Sun: Rest
    Each work out 1 1/2 hours to 2. I love volume. I think volume adds more mass. You can use HIT for strength training but for mass I need volume.

    I still agree with myself.

    The old software, UBB, makes the default member, Admin, member #1.
    When you first install you have to log in with that user, then you create a new admin, then you delete it.
