Has anyone done a specific workout more then once or twice a week and saw results...

Which workout? For how long? What results did you see?

Any suggestions?

Personally looking to lose some bf, gain more mass in my upper body, I eat clean and seperate my cardio and workouts (unless it's a day I lift weights)

03 Mar
Do more cardio and less weight lifting me I use to box as a teenager and that is one of the best workout for trimming or losing weight you can get on YouTube and find real good cardio workouts.....a sweat suit works good while u workout too u can get one at Wal-Mart or Dick's

Isn't the sweat suit just for water weight

Why do you want to stick with one specific workout? I like the possibility to do at least one new workout every day - it's fun to explore what else may be a great workout and also keeps me motivated rather than doing the same stuff over and over again.

Just asked if there is a specific one that has really helped

When I see a body part lacking development I will hit that 2 x a week. Like my rear deltoids were non existent for awhile I hit behind the head shoulder presses 2 times a week one day heavy weight one day light weight. I'll do that for whatever body part I want to bring up to speed.

It's not an specific kind of workout. it's a personal online trainer and you can choose your goal.
Try it and let me know.
The best thing is that is free.

I've been using it for a while and I thought it gives you a good workout and it takes into consideration any muscle imbalances.

But everyone has their own opinion

If you stick to the same routine your body will soon get used to it and it won't give any results anymore. I honestly don't think working out only once or twice a week will give you any significant results either.

I'm all for weight training (bodyweight exercises or weight lifting) since the more muscle you build, the more energy your body will burn even in rest. For cardio I prefer high intensity interval training (HIIT) which has actually been scientifically proven to be more effective than longer stretches of cardio where your heart rate is about the same for a longer period of time. Just 5-10 minutes of HIIT daily can be more effective than 45 minutes of low intensity cardio three times a week.

I should have been more specific. I work out 5 days a week and seperate my cardio from my lifting. I know what I am doing. I was just thinking one person on this app has done a program that has shown results

I re-read your post after I posted this and realized your questions weren't on beginner level. Sorry. :)

Jim Stoppani creates some good workout utilizing microcycles reps to keep shocking your body. You can google him and his workouts are free. 
I've tried his shortcut to size and was impressed
