I train 6 days per week. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I will train all the muscle groups for just one exercise each for 6 sets of each. I group the body parts in such a way so that I can do super sets and in doing so I won’t rest too long between sets. I change the exercises every workout day. As an example I might do Incline Dumbbell Flys for the chest on Monday, while on Wednesday I might go with the Bench Press and on Friday it might be Decline Bench Presses. Each of the 6 sets I do is increased from the previous one and each week I try to add 5 pounds to all my previous 6 set poundages.
On Tuesday I will do 18 to 20 sets for the chest and the back and on Thursday I will work the legs and shoulders for 18 to 20 sets each. I break up the back and leg training in the manner I have just described because they’re the two largest muscle groups and it’s not as tiring this way. I work my calves every day for a half hour. Saturday is arm day and just a laid-back fun day.
There are four muscle groups which I work six days per week for 6 sets of one different exercise each day. They are the Forearms, Abs, Leg Biceps and the Neck. I will train at about 85-90% of maximum and I try to do 30 sets per hour which is 1 set every two minutes. My rep scheme is varied in that I will do 6 to 10 reps per body part, but as I grow stronger I will up my reps to 15 for the upper body and 25 reps for the legs
My life change when I trained twice a day, six times a week. In the morning, I trained the lower body with high repetition squats, hack lifts, calf exercises and sometimes heavy bench presses. In the evening, I worked the upper body. All the squat sets were done in 20 reps with very deep breathing. The upper body work consisted of heavy standing presses, curls, bench presses, both barbell and dumbbell rows at anywhere from 6 to 10 reps per set. At this time, I did no other activity and rested whenever I was away from the weights.

I gave it a shot and by the fifth day I was completely worn out and over-trained. I do heavy to-failure upper body workouts utilizing bodyweight, bands, and weights, and I just can't do it day after day. I need that 48 hour recovery. Looking at the routines of the big names from the Golden Age - Reeves, Park, Pearl, et. al., they all worked out 3 days a week. I don't care what today's steroid freaks do. Besides, I do workout 6 days a week - upper body one day, forearms and legs the next day. I do just fine with this routine.

But obviously, the closer you get to failure when training, the more rest you need. If you are really pushing it, you may need a full week or more to recover, but if not, you may be recovered the very next day.

Now, there's a surprise. Back before the creation of The Peoples Republic of Twatformania, I asked Dear Leader whether it was ok to do 100% to-the-max isometrics everyday, and his response was, "No way!"

I also think that it is pretty obvious that the people that can train 8 hours a day with out performance enhancing drugs are the athletic elite of the world and that they are not the norm and should not be mimicked.

When I was a skinny young guy, I would, on occasion decide to do something about it. I would enroll in a gym and go to work. I was aware of bodybuilding split routines, but I just figured that was for time constraints. I thought that if I did everything all the time, I'd grow big and strong twice as fast. Two weeks, maybe three weeks of this and I was ready to collapse and I'd quit.
One day I read in a fitness magazine about how necessary recovery is - giving your muscles the needed time to replenish and build themselves. The article said that it takes 48 hours for this process to complete itself. That time was based upon the standard 3x10 weight routine. Once I started applying that to my gym workouts, I was no longer ready to drop dead after a couple of weeks, and I have adhered to that protocol ever since. It sure hasn't hurt me any, and this is what I would advise for anyone who is going to pursue a serious workout program.
