New Research Reveals the Answer
Here’s the right number of times to hit the gym to maximize muscle growth
If you want the most gains, you should train each muscle group twice a week, according to a new review in the journal Sports Medicine.
Scientists analyzed 10 prior studies that compared muscle growth in people who trained each muscle group once, twice, or three times per week over a couple months.
They found that when you work a muscle twice a week, it grows more than when you train it once a week.
