Frequency of Strength Training

What is the perfect workout routine? How many days per week is ideal if I want to get bigger?  Or stronger? Or more cut?  I wish I had a dollar for everytime I've been asked that question or asked it!  I'd be rich!  Here is the final answer: there isn't one!  I have searched over and over for the holy grail of fitness and have come up empty.  I look at real research and not marketing.  The truth is that the ideal frequency or training split is the one you will do on a regular basis.  Whether you can train 2-3 times per week or 5-6, you can find peak fitness with that frequency.  The key is to either understand the physiology involved and what brings about the adaptations or hire a trainer that is qualified.  If you have less time to train during the week you'll need to isolate muscle groups less and plan less volume.  You will also need to work harder when you do train.  If you have plenty of days to allow for strength training you can isolate body parts more and train with a much higher volume.  You will also earn the right to not train quite as hard.  Whatever you have time for do it and make it consistently.  You may not be on the trail for the holy grail but you'll find the fountain of youth.  Be well, Rob
