    Why only train 3 days per week? Why not train 6 days per week instead?

    if you lift 6 days/week, watch out how much volume you are doing

    Right- no problem with six, or five, or four, for that matter. A number of us in here have experimented, successfully, with cycles like these. Three-days are good for those who tend to overtrain or whose schedules don't allow for more frequency, or whatever. But if you have the time and the stamina (and, a six-day doesn't/shouldn't have to be high volume, you know), go for more frequency. If you're a beginner, though, I'd stick with three-day at least for the fist cycle or two till you get used to the program.

    I think 2x day, 6x week.

    back legs AM,

    Chest, shoulders, arms pm.

    2 sets per exercise, focus on compounds like clean & press, RDL, bench, pullover.
