    For someone who’s been working out with decent results for three years using body splits, would it be good to switch to upper/lower splits including two days of upper body workouts and two days lower body workouts per week? This because I heard that working out each body part twice a week is better is that true?

    Depends on how much you're breaking down the muscle on the days you are working out. If truly heavy work-outs, then your muscle will need more time to recover. Not as easy to answer as 2 or 3, mate.

    Can't go wrong with a good upper/lower routine. PHUL or Lyle McDonald's Generic Bulking Routine are two good ones.

    Damn dude that timing though! Thanks I will check them out. Although I tried Lyles and just thought it was a bit too intensive. Will give it a proper go, I really like Upp/lower splits but constantly feel like im neglecting arms. Usually by the end of Chest/Back/Shoulders you are fried and although these grow them on their own I really like just doing 1/2 sets on both Tris/Bi`s but often its often just left out.
