Just for interest. I'm certainly happy with the M,W,F training frequency but if anyone says thrice weekly full body workouts is too much frequency I would refer them to the routine of Bill Hemsworth who was one of Britain's greatest bodybuilders. I trained at Bill's gym from the age of 14 through to 22. He used to do twelve full body routines a week and get into unbelievable size and condition. Bill didn't have the trainees at his heath studio training like this but I regularly used to watch him workout. I was always struck by the mediocrity of his training partners who matched him rep for rep pound for pound yet looked nothing like. He was just a bundle of sinews, veins and ludicrously oversized muscle. Bill Hemsworth was certainly one of the UK's great bodybuilders and was a renowned coach in his day. http://www.strength-oldschool.com/t...e-full-body-every-day-for-muscle-development/ If you read the article you may be struck by the ridiculously high protein intake which was of the old school low-carb approach. I'm guessing he's consuming hundreds and hundreds of grams in what's listed there. Hemsworth was getting such immense size from his 12x a week routine he was clearly maximizing protein synthesis and somehow he was managing to recover from the staggering workload.
