There are several ways to train a muscle twice weekly. The most popular is probably a basic push/pull routine, with legs back and bis on Mon and Thurs, and chest, shoulders, tris Tues and Fri. Or vice versa.Think training's hard,. try losing!

at 6'4 185 i would opt to get on a program that focus' on the big lifts. I would stay away from most isolation work. I also don't see any problem with hitting a "muscle" twice a week, but i would not look at it as hitting muscles. Try and start getting stronger at the bench, incline, overhead press, squat, deadlift, bent row, barbell curl, dip, pullup, and so on. Try doing two upper and lower days a week. Put deads in the lower day, you could also do back in the lower day if you can handle it. Keep your volume moderate, i would not do 5x5 because it is going to be alot of volume for an exercise and you are not going to be focusing on one exercise a day. I would try somethig like this.
dips 3x10 hang weight if you need to
rear delts 3x12
barbell curls 3x10
skull crushers 3x10
chins or pullups 6 sets of various grips
dumbell flat 3x10
Close grip bench 3x8-10
standing military 2x8
dumbell curls 3x10
tri pushdowns 2x15
hack squats 2x20
bent rows 3x8
this is completely off the top of my head. But it address' everything. Their are things i do a little diffently but i am not trainig for aesthetics. Everyone is going to have their own opinion on what you should do, but I would staty away from the typical bodybuilder split, one day a week routine. The key to you getting bigger and stronger is adding weight to the bar every week and being conistent with your diet and training. If you are consistent and you do the basics and try and increase weight every week you will get bigger and stronger unless you are starving yourself.

front delts - military press, front DB raises
side delts - wide grip upright rows (has to be wide grip), side DB raises
rear delts - face pulls, rear DB raises

hey man. sorry its taken so long to get back to you. novedex xt will work fine but its a knock off to the real stuff. look for "Nolvadex" not novedex. its a close difference. if you need a source pm me.

no disrespect suncloud but military press primarily works the medial deltoid. not anterior.
