    Default What is the optimal training frequency?

    This review found that training a muscle group more than once per week was optimal for growth. However, for various reasons, no significant difference was found between training a muscle group twice per week or three times per week. Increasing training frequency is an easy way to increase overall training volume, so if you’re stuck in a plateau, try increasing your training frequency to boost growth.

    Yes, Sir. I've read that before. I like to do 2 times per week, I don't know why, I just feel like I'm slacking off. No offence intended for the once per week guys. Just what I do.

    I agree, it really depends on the individual. If your hitting it hard and intense, 1 x per week works well for most.
