    ya you should go to the fitness and nutrition section, but to bulk up you need to focus more on your diet than your training. 3 days a week training your different muscle groups, eating lots of good clean calories, lots of water..figure out how many calories you need to gain.

    I'm 5'11 and 203 - trying to lose weight, not bulk up

    All you need to do is convert that fat into muscle, just hit the weights and eat healthier, its that simple. Cardio helps to bring your metabolism up

    When I was working out it was 5-6 days a week, cardio every day and alternating muscle groups every other day i.e biceps, back and leg curls one day, then triceps chest and squats the next.

    Just don't do the same muscle every day (except abs and core) and you'll be good

    Depends on how often you want to train and how much volume you're doing.

    You can do each muscle group once a week with high volume. You can do each muscle group more frequently with lower volume (so you recover faster).

    It depends on your goals, too. Bodybuilding is different from powerlifting which is different from training for a triathlon, etc.

    they know their shit. trust me. a guy like this asking the off topic forum this question isn't going to get a lot of intelligent answers... read some articles on bodybuilding.com dude, or t-nation. there are many different workout routines that require different frequency then others.:bigthumb:
