Lately I have been getting more and more questions regarding strength training.  The MINIMUM amount of strength training recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine is eight to twelve repetitions of eight to ten exercises, at a moderate intensity, two days a week. Keep your strength program simple.  Remember your keys to success: overload, recovery, and progression.  As a general rule, each muscle that you train should be rested one to two days before being exercised further in order for super compensation to occur.
