What did you had in mind?

3 days is enough,

chest/back
legs
shoulders/arms


Less is more. The diet is the biggest concern if you want to constructive progress.

i think limiting your posting on getbig to 4 days a week would have some health benefits

Monster preparing for Mr. GetBig. Good luck 240. 4 days a week should cut it IF you do it right. I'd recommend about 1hr at least each session, full intensity (to get that extra rep in), going to failure on every set, and hitting all rep ranges (1 - 20). Basic advice, but you need to go back to basics if you're starting up again. What's your program like?

Depends on your schedule (which I understand is pretty hectic for you lately).

How has balancing both parenting and training been so far?

4 days is good but a 2 or 3 day split then 1 off & repeat is better IMO.

yes or no?

can't really say without more information.  What's the routine look like?  I guess I could blanket answer it and say "yes, it's great" but without more to go off of it's kinda a useless question.  No offense, just fill in the details and you'll get better answers.

Sure, alternate Upper and Lower workouts.

Here's just an example of a 4 day layout I like.

Day 1- Upper* (concentration on bench pressing and rowing)
Day 2- Lower + arms (concentration on squats)
Day 3- rest / cardio
Day 4- Upper (concentration on shoulder pressing and vertical pulling)
Day 5- Lower + arms (concentration on deads/posterior chain)
Day 6- rest / cardio
Day 7- rest
Repeat

*chest, back and shoulders.

if you can recover faster than every seven days...workout more often than that. if you cant..space it out farther. 

an ideal weight lifting schedule is one that destroys a muscle the second it is fully reparied and ready to lift with again.


for my body, that means once every five days..like this(no rest days):
chest/hamstrings
bi's/tri's/calves
shhoulders/traps/abs
back/calves
quads/abs
repeat
