    It all depends on your lifestyle. Supplements, sleep habits, warming up/cooling down, flexibility training, proper technique... they can all effect how the muscle recooperates and how quickly. Be conscious of these things in your everyday life.

    For the health of your workouts I would suggest that you rotate body parts, exercises, and routines quite often or else you'll get sick of it and just give up.

    3-4 days a week is what I heard recommended. I also heard that it's a big problem that most people aren't lifting enough weights... The amount of weights you should be lifting is 60-70% of your one rep max. Meaning, if you can lift a 100lb. weight just once, then you should be lifting 60 - 70lb. weights. You should be able to do about 8 reps of your 60-70% 1rep max, and 3 sets of those per day. But I heard this was for strength training... So I might be way off track here.

    No, that's pretty much it. It depends on your goals. Usually if you are trying to tone, go about 15 reps x 3 sets, if you are trying to get muscle and keep toned go about 8 reps x 3 sets, and if you are trying to add pure size and strength then go 3-5 reps x 3 sets.

    It all depends on your intentions while working out.
