Well OP, you seem sort of new to this so i'll lay it out on you
You have a couple decisions..
You can do a split, meaning usually working out 5 days a week a different muscle-group each day
You can do Full-body routines 3x a week, with a day in between to rest. e.g. monday/wensday/friday
Personally, i do a mix of the both of these, sort of.
3 days devoted to back/legs/bi/abs
the days inbetween are shoulders/chest/triceps
you'll wanna check out SS though bro

someone once said that a picture can paint a thousand words, if thats true then words can certainly paint a thousand pictures, in your mind, as sometimes words whether its a simple word of kindness, or a hash reality, is exactly what you needed to hear

7 days a week.
Its a ritual thing 4 me, I know a lot of people at the gym and I go everyday, if I skipped a day then I feel I would get out of the habit.
Usually 5 days a week I do 1hour weights 30mins cardio 30mins sauna, jacuzzi,shower
2 days a week 30mins abs and core and 45mins cardio + 30mins sauna, jacuzzi, showerWill rep back (ALWAYS ALWAYS) :D. Just write 'Rep back' and will sort you out ;)
EDIT - Forget this, got negged by a mod for like no reason so now am worse rank. Sympathy rep anyone? haha

Depends on how fast your body recovers. I do 5 or 6, depending on how my legs/back feel.
Upper AND Lower
Been getting GREAT gains doing this. This gives you 3 upper body days, 2 lower, 2 back. I have really good recovery in my upper body, so that's why I do it on Saturdays as well.

Thanks for all of the replies guys i appreciate it!
I think im going to do Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Take a break Friday, than go saturday, and do a light workout like cardio on sunday to sort of give myself a break for the next week.
but it wouldnt be bad if some weeks i go every day? when i dont go it kind of makes me feel like a lazy ass..haha
