It's more a question of how many days can/do you want to workout.
You should workout for as many days as your schedule allows you to.
Fitness is personal to your own wants/needs/situation.
I used to go 3 days a week because that's all I could,  now I can go to the gym 5 days even though I wish I went 6. Work/children don't allow me that luxury, but there's always home workouts when I can't.

You can do 5-6 days a week; each on a different muscle group
Or 2-3 day push/pull or push/pull/cardio (or legs)
Even a 4 day upper/lower/cardio split
Endless choices and combinations.

So basically, all that just to say...it boils down to what your needs are, how your body recovers, and your dedication and determination to prove any and every one who tells you that you will fail; wrong.

True but its hard to get my oldest to exercise besides walking he had a very bad broken arm 1 year ago and he had to have surgery and it didnt heal correctly so its hard for me to do much with that arm ( broken arm happened at school )
