What is more important when it comes to working your muscles? According to recent research, it's more important that you lift more weight  rather than how often you do it.

One study showed that when three group of men hit the weights tow, three or four times a week, the difference in strength gains were minor. It may be enough if you trained twice a week, because that allows you to get a better recovery. If you trained more frequently, the stress may blunt some of the effects of training.

SO what does this mean? Well, so long as you out your muscles through the work necessary to make them grow, it doesnt matter how long or how often. Instead, we should focus on increasing the volume - more sets, more weight you lift or more reps, and we will see some good gains.
