Split Routines

I`m trying to develop a workout program for myself. What muscle groups should be worked out together and how often per week?

Split Routines

There are several approaches if you don't want to work your whole body in the same session. One is upper body one day, lower the next. Another is the push-pull system. This is pushing muscles (chest, triceps, shoulders) one day and pulling (back, biceps, legs) the next. You can also do chest, tris, shoulders one day, back, bis, and abs the next, then legs on a separate day. There is a trend now to work each muscle group once a week only, but I think this is not enough stimulation for growth for most people. I prefer twice a week.
