    I would say the exercises you do would be the main thing to worry about. So if you are trying to bulk up make sure you are hitting deads and squats hard. Other than that I don't think it matters too much which days you are workin out diff muscles. I could be wrong though.

    i agree. also you're diet is going to be a main factor anyway. lift heavy, very heavy in all lifts, but especially deads and squats

    Personally, I keep the rep ranges between 8-10 for hypertrophy except for deads/squats which I would do heavier weight. Doesn't matter what muscle you work with what, but I wouldn't work any given muscle twice without a good 3 day break. I don't really keep with schedules though, I just listen to what my body says. You won't be doing any "bulking" unless you're eating enough for it.

    Here's an example of my usual routine:
    chest
    back/shoulders
    bis/tris
    legs

    Rest when I feel I need to, workout when I feel I need to.

    Your ability to recover will determine that answer. You didn't say if you were natural or not, either; or how old you were. But, guessing you were relatively young (compared to me...lol) and natural, I would say break up your bodyparts training over 4 days. Keep it simple... Go for as heavy as you can while still maintaining good form. Keep the intensity high and you will see great results soon.

    And, if you are really wanting to try a training system, give this one a try.

    Since you are a football player things are completely different when you do workouts. The basic lifts for football are simple but it does change things. In football you want to be explosive, fast, quick, and powerful. Here is an example of a workout program that I did when I was in college, I changed a few things around.

    DAY 1

    Squats 3x8
    Deadlift 3x8
    Leg Press 3x8
    Snatch 3x8

    DAY 2

    Bench Press 3x8
    Incline DB Press 3x8
    Military Press 3x8
    Pull Ups 3x failure

    Day 3 REST


    Day 4

    Front Squat 3x8
    Power Clean 3x8
    Dead Lift 3x8
    Jerks 3x8

    Day 5
    Bench Press
    Rows
    Pull Ups
    Neck and Ab work

    The first 2 weeks after your leg workouts you might puke, or possibly take 2 or 3 days to recover, so just go easy at first... make sure you are warming up properly and after each day I would say to do some Wind sprints quick 40 yards, and some other agility drills (ask your coach) You can change this around if you want, this is just an example of something we did back in the day and I have my football players do in the offseason.
