    Each muscle group twice a week?

    Unless you already know you are one of the very few gifted people who can do this and get consistent results, I would really recommend against it.

    You might be better off splitting it up more. Also, only doing 4-5 resistance sessions a week.

    You really need to assess your physique and create a training programme and split that will work on your weaknesses, whilst maintaining and even adding to your strengths.

    There is nothing wrong with doing each muscle group twice a week - I hit each muscle group 3-4 times a week. It is all very individual dependent and if that's what will work for the OP, then so be it.

    I think you would be okay, it its done right. E.g.

    Early week split heavy 5 - 6 reps to failure
    Later week split hypertrophy 8 - 15 reps stopping 2 - 3 reps short of failure.

    Basically bit like layne norton split. I would make day 4 rest though. (rest inbewtween heavy split and hypertrophy split)

    For a beginner, yes. However, when you've been training for years and you know what your body is capable of doing, then you can do it - you only have to look through my logs to see what I do re training. Everyone is different - it comes down to experience and knowing your body and how it responds.

    My doctor recently told me that doing back and bi and doing chest and tri build scar tissue in joints. I have no argument but also no proof except for his word...just throwin that out there.
