    k for example i do chest monday wed fri like hardcore... i dunno if thats enough time to let my muscles build back up and what not... but is it more beneficial to do bench once a week or... 3 times a week... if you want to get stronger...?

    2x a week is about ideal for most people. However, most people don't understand the concept of reducing volume, so stick with 1x a week until you have learned a lot more about training.

    actually, it's the opposite. Noobs should do full body or upper/lower splits

    you're numbers really dont mean anything (they aint that great either) the fact is you do not know what you're doing making.

    what magic artical tells you this? Building a base is what its all about. Some of you guys like to reinvent the wheel but sorry I will take any noob and train him my way vs your way and lets see who comes out on top. Full body is fucking pointless and training a noob twice a week is nothing more then a nervous system shocker. You get overtrained twice as fast. Then again its my opionion vs whoever your about to cut and paste

    yes but look at his volume, its not full blown routines, also the people i said it was good for were not straight noobs. They had some time in the gym. Notice Im not passing off his routine to anyone, I do all my own privately for people.
