Well, that's very simple.
When I go to the gym, I see some numbnuts doing something down right stupid.
I can keep quiet and enjoy the show, if you call stupidly maiming oneself for others to see a show or I can correct them. My post to lefty is the latter. By correcting them, am I upset or mad?
Well, you can call it whatever you want.

I have always found that less is more when it comes to gaining muscle mass. If you are natural then lifting anymore then 3 times per week is generally counterproductive. Granted some people just have the genetics to blow up by curling their cell phones, but I am guessing this thread is not for them anyway.

I generally try to lift M-W-F and do it as such.
M(workout A1)
W(workout B1)
F(workout A2)
M(workout B2)
W(workout A3)
F(workout B3)
M(workout A1).... rinse repeat.

For example workout A2 would work all of the same bodyparts as A1 but use different lifts to do so. I also keep a log so that when I get back around to A1 I will try to lift more then the previous A1 workout.

I find that lifting balls to the wall to failure is also the best way

2 or 3 warm up sets and 1 work set until failure.

Try to stick with lifts that move the body through space. (squats instead of leg press, chin-ups instead of lat pull downs) you get the idea.
