As many/few as you need in terms of total volume (per training session/per week/X).

That's one factor, so is how many reps you average per set and also what their weekly volume is etc.

Yeah, if you do 50 sets per week you will need to increase frequency beyond 2x/week. But that...

I think 6x/week 2sets per bodypart and such is crap for bodybuilding. What's the point of diluting such a low weekly volume? It's a result of reading too much into short term protein synthesis...

I think when it comes to frequency an important factor to consider is weekly training volume. I think if someone is for example doing 10-15 sets per week and muscle group it's generally not going to...

It goes beyond that. Squats, deadlifts, bench press, barbell rows etc are not appropriate for everyone. Many times it's best to start out with mostly machine exercises and then after a while you...

They are tough on the knees too so might not be the best option for you. And in general not really a main exercise for the quads.

Have you tried facing the other way when using your hack squats...

Plenty of people are doing it in the fitness world. Generally it has less to do with being scientific and more about being 'OCD'.

No, I wouldn't say that it would be pointless assuming you are doing them correctly. If you want you can superset weighted crunches with hanging leg raises.

I would suggest that you put the bench press first on both days and that you increase the bench press volume. After that you can add one supplementary exercise (db press, flyes, shoulder press,...

If you have been training for 10 years then it's likely that the GBR is not appropriate for you. Use a split routine where you target two muscle groups per training cycle.
