    Like you said, shoulders get a pretty good workout on chest day as well. But only you can answer if it's "ok". Try it out for a few weeks and see. Don't be surprised if your chest day suffers a bit though, at least until you get used to it.

    To answer your question, once a week for me too.

    ALthough I only do it once a week, I give shoulders pretty much their own day cause I love shoulders and I want big ones. I usually spend a full hour on just shoulders then maybe add some core work or cardio or other small accessory muscle group. Great results, I dare say my shoulders are my best developed group right now.

    Once.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I train shoulders once a week. Many people train shoulders twice a week and have success doing such. Just be mindful of overtraining and you should be ok. If you do other major upper body parts twice and shoulder only once that could be an explanation of why you feel they are lagging. Shoulders do get some secondary work with chest and back, but they deserve their own unique training sessions. Unless you're one of those genetically blessed individuals who can get away with it. Most of us are not. Train your shoulders the same way you train chest and back, and give it some time. Re-assess in 4-6 months.

    I like to train them twice a week. One day is high intensity, and the other day is high volume.
