    4-5.

    6 days on is probably overdoing it. I dont think major muscle groups 3 days in a row is much good. You could get away with chest, back, arms on consecutive days but not chest, back, legs.

    I think 2 days then a rest day is good. You dont have to be hitting the same muscle the same day every week.

    Do something more like:

    Monday - chest/tris/shoulder (push day basically)

    Wednesday - back/bi's/traps (pull day)

    Friday - Legs

    Feel free to throw in something like forearms or abs in one of those days.

    Back and legs on the same day is never optimal.

    I suggest:

    Legs
    Upper-back(Lats+Traps) and Shoulders
    Rest
    Arms (Biceps+Triceps) and Deadlifts
    Rest
    Chest
    Rest or repeat

    OP everyone is different.
    'tards are gonna say:
    'oh well you should be on a 3/4/5 day split , otherwise you will overtrain.
    I say that (altho somewhat it could be true) you are the only one to decide and know if you are actually overtraining or not.
    Just go out there and see what happens, if you think you can handle it (which i am SURE you can , if you watch your diet and get some extra sleep plus we are teens celular activity is like 5x than 25+yos) then keep on doing it, if not then change it up.

    naw you're fine with 6 days a week if you feel your body can ahndle it. just make sure you eat properly and get enough sleep. i was doing 7 days a week before but then switched over to 6 days when i found that i responded better with one day off. right now my split is...
    legs
    chest/little triceps
    back/little biceps
    shoulders/traps
    legs
    arms
    HIIT
    repeat

    been seeing awesome results on this. abs are done a lil bit everyday aswell. it really is just understanding your own body though and figuring out how it responds best. good luck OP

    what is the purpose of working out 6 days a week? You can easily hit all the muscle groups properly going 5 days. I workout all the weekdays and rest on the weekend. Heres my spit:

    Mon: Chest
    Tues: Back
    Wed: Legs
    Thur: Shoulders/Abs
    Fri: Arms
    Sat: Rest
    Sun: Rest
