    3x/week works for me.

    diet and rest/recovery play an important role.

    Agreed.

    I may occasionly bump it up to 4x a week if i'm on varsity holidays or during periods of low stress and plenty of free time. (M,T,w,T,F,s,s)

    it also depends on the type of split you're doing.
    e.g upper/lower or full body or 1 muscle group a week.

    Depends on different factors:

    How much sleep you get
    How intense you are lifting
    How you are feeding your muscles

    Personally I lift 3 days on then 1 day off. It is just a matter of knowing YOUR body, and this comes with time in the gym. There is a fine line you have to reach between undertraining and overtraining, thats the goal.

    I do 1 to 2 body parts every 5 days. I used to go 5x a week witch worked but now I go about 6-7 times a week if I feel rested enough but 1-2 body parts gets you a 5 day spilt.

    5x/week but it's a total body, depletion workout. Prepping for 3x/week Sheiko.
