stats on the left...pretty much goal is to tone up in most areas of my body. im still a little soft since i had lost a good amount of weight a while back. as of right now ive been taking jack3d for two weeks and after each workout i take 52g of whey protein and i usually workout 6 days a week MOST of the time... just in case you guys need more info on my situation. thanks.

depends on the volume really. In dc training, everything is hit 2 times a week. In 5 day splits everything is hit 1 time. In HST a full body workout is done 3 times a week.
If you're hammering everything to death, then once a week is fine.

It depends on the volume. Fullbody workouts for instance are relatively low volume but you hit each muscle group three times a week. IMO this is better for beginners, because it allows you to focus on heavier movements to build a good foundation. So each muscle group is expected to recover in two days in that example. But in a split routine the volume is higher for a muscle group in a particular day so the recovery time will increase. For me three to four days is about right. Longer if I havent done a particular movement or trained in a while.

another thing would be if your doing a pre contest split, bulking, bringing a lacking body part, etc. I would normally do 14-18 sets per week per muscle group.
Now you can do it one body part a day or split it up. But 18 sets is quite a bit.
