    If you're going for hypertrophy you shouldn't be training how many body parts in a day. If you're going for maintenance you could probably hit that protocol twice a week..... but everybody's different
    You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great

    Don't worry about other people. When YOU'RE recovered is when you can train it again.

    there is no cookie cutter answer cause it depends on the intensity of the workout and how much quality sleep you get

    I can tell you this if you train your shoulders intensely more than once or twice a week you will end up with a torn rotator cuff in no time

    do NFL athletes play a game every day? no they don't.. they take a full week between games for a reason. and when they play a thursday game on a short week there are many more injuries for a reason. in the NHL the team that had to play a road game 2 straight nights rests their goalie for one of those games for a reason too. you pound your body into the dirt you will only set yourself back.. rest is needed
