Strength training works by creating micoscopic tears in the muscles fibers, which then grow back stronger. But it takes time for this to happen, which is why most experts recommend resting 48-72 hours between ST sessions (which implies 2-3 times per week).
This is no different for beginners or seasoned campaigners (the main difference is just the weight that they lift).
Aim to work most of the major muscles with each workout, by using compound exercises (eg. squats, pushups, planks, deadlifts)
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
