How often should you strength train with each major muscle group?

How often should you strength train with each major muscle group?
3 times a week
Explanation
Aim to train each muscle group at least two times per week, and up to three if you have the time or are more advanced. One day per week may help you maintain your current level of strength, but it will not be enough to build muscle. It is important to rest 1-2 days in between working out the same muscle(s). Rest days give the muscles time to repair themselves from small tears that occur during strength training, and this is how you get stronger
