2 Times a Week

hey guys.
I just wanted to get information about training a muscle part 2 times a week.

  1. Upper chest and front delts
  2. abdominals side & rear delts
  3. Calves and Biceps
  4. Lower chest, front delts
  5. Rear deltoids and back thickness
  6. rear delts and back
  7. Quads and Hams

I’m currently training the 3 heads of my deltoid muscle two times a week to play catch up from my other dominating mucles.
however, I heard that natural bodybuilders should only train a muscle once a week.
I’m confused about this conflicting ideas.

I also read somewhere that it is fine to train abs and calves 3 times a week or every other day.

I’m a newbie so to bodybuilding science so thank you in advance to any of your answers!

Your post is kind of confusing. What is that list about? The body parts you train each day? The priorities you have? I think you can find answers to your needs at this site. Look up articles by Waterbury and Thibaudeau and you will be started in the right direction.

sorry about that. I wasn’t thinking.

the numbers represent days
day 1 is monday and and 7 is sunday.

You can train them 15 times a week each it all depends on the total volume of the week , If going for more then 1 time then the volume of each session drops, you do less each session and more sessions. Stimulate not annhilitate or go balls out kill each part one day and rest a week. All of them can work just not at the same time.
