Neither of those.  I'd break it down like this with heavy compound movements 3 days week.  Fill in what exercises you like but, something like this:

M - pushing (bench, military, and tri work, etc.)

W - Legs (squats, leg press, calves, etc)

F - Pull (dead lifts, rows, bi work, etc)

I used this in the past and it works great.  You will need the rest between if you go heavy enough.  And you will feel sore a bunch.   Grin

Good point, you have to try and see what works for you.  Some folks each body part 1 time a week is good.  Others have to do twice a week to get some good results.  And some can do a whole body 3 times a week for good results.   Just depends on the person and quality of their diet, sleep, etc.

pretty hard to focus on weak point trainings when you only go 3 days a week. I strongly suggest 4 or even 5 days a week. The best bodies on the planet are built with this type of training...
