      Hi,
      Atm I've been lifting for about 3 months, the first 2 of those mainly searching how and what to do.
      I was doing a 3-day split :

      mon: Chest/tris/abs
      wed: back/bis/traps
      Fri: legs/shoulders/abs

      Then for the last month I basicly just doubled this.
      Doing the same but x2 and then sunday = rest day.


      And now, I'm looking for a great workout plan to do, I heard hitting your muscles 2x / week is the way to go for me
      but that my plan is't really the best.

      So what to do then?
      PHAT? my 6day split (3day split x2 )
      A different split?
      Upper lower?
      Push pull?

      Cheers guys.

      I don't like the idea of hitting your muscles twice a week. It doesn't allow for your muscles to fully recover. Plus, if you're hitting them twice without soreness, that just means your not hitting them hard enough. My advice, find a workout plan that hits each muscle group once a week. There you can train them hard and get better results. I've been training for two years, and I've gotten better results by doing workouts that hit each muscle group once a week instead of the twice a week versions. Look into Jim Stoppani's Shortcut To Size workout. I'm currently doing it and it;s great. You can find it by going to the top left of this page and hitting "Find A Plan" and select the categories you belong too and you will find great workout plans.

      Your advice is rubbish.

      Training a muscle twice a week is better.

      You dont and should not wait for your muscles to fully recover, muscles take 2 weeks to fully recover.

      Soreness doesnt indicate growth.

      Atm, I'm thinking about starting PHAT by Layne Norton, that seems like a very well created program imho.
      Good?
      I know guys like Josef Rakich, Jim Stoppani mainly say jump into a split and hit everything once a week but I thought muscles need about 48 hours to recover enough to be trained again?
