No lifting for me today. Squat workout tomorrow. And big dog walk in an hour.
Simple circuit gave to a client today: Box Jumps, Sprinter Step-ups, Stability Ball Leg Curls, Spiderman Pushups, Kettlebell Swings.

FB Question: For optimal size and growth of a muscle how many times should a particular muscle group be trained in one week? I.E shoulder 1,2,3 times per week for hypertrophy?
4 days is enough training. Two upper and two lower sessions per week. In reality, it's more like 3.5 workouts per week, because its hard to jusify a full 2nd lower body workout.
FB Q: Why are bench press machines lighter than free weight benches? and are there any advantages of using onerather than the other for building mass?
Don't use bench press machines. I can't think of one good reason to use them over dumbbells and bodyweight exercises. They are shoulder injuries waiting to happen.
