I currently am targeting my pecs/triceps/shoulders as primary muscles,
and then biceps/back/abs as secondary,
and am trying to build mass so doing 4reps per set @ my 4reps max weight.
I go gym every 4th day for around 1 hour 30mins, and that time is split as following-
50% of it is spent working my pecs/triceps/shoulders, 30% working my biceps, 15% working my back, and 5% doing my abs.
(Although ive also now added an extra 30mins at the end of each session, which i spend working my glutes/hamstrings/quads for an injury recovery)
Every article, topic, and thread id ever read said that to build muscle mass you need to rest your muscles for ATLEST 3 full days between each workout session to give the muscle fibres enough time to heal and regrow back bigger and thicker.
However ive now started getting quite a few comments saying that only working the muscles every 4th day and giving them 3days rest inbetween isn't going to be effective at all in building muscle mass,
as thats way too long gap between each workout,
and that i should instead be working the muscles 4-5x per week.... :S
But so i am curious about when you are trying to build mass how many times per week do you actually workout each muscle group??
