Workout Frequency:

Each time you place heavy stress on a muscle group in your bodybuilding workouts, you must rest that body part for 48-96 hours before blasting it in a succeeding training session. This rest period allows the muscle to fully recover and then increase in mass, tone, and strength between workouts. (I will tell you more about this recovery cycle a bit later in this article.)

Because you must rest for two or three days between workouts for each body part in order for your muscles to grow properly, beginning, level bodybuilders must train on three nonconsecutive days per week. Most commonly, this means training on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays each week, resting on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and weekends. However, you can work out on any other three nonconsecutive days per week, such as Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, I just prefer to recommend Monday's Wednesday's and Fridays so you can keep the weekends free.

Later, when you become more experienced and your workouts begin to take more than one hour per day to complete, you will probably wish to switch to a split routine, in which you train only part of your body on each workout day. By doing half of your body parts on one day and the other half on the next, you will work out four to six times per week but still essentially allow 18-72 hours between training sessions for each muscle group.
