Max OT question, how often to train

My big question is concerning how often you should train each week.

I recently started learning about Max OT training after seeing the documentary "I want to look like that guy" by Stuart MacDonald.
In the Max OT training program you train only for 30-45 min and you split up your workouts to 5 days a week; Legs on Monday, arms and abs on Tuesday and so on.
This all seemed cool to me and I had only recently started when a good friend of mine who has been lifting for 14 years told me that I shouldn't lift more than 3 times a week to give my muscles some rest. His words were "If you are not on steroids you can't expect your body to recuperate that quickly". Three times a week is the way I had always trained before, so my question is this:

Is it OK for a beginner (2 years lifting) to train 5 days a week where you only do one major muscle group per week?

My week would then look like this:

Monday: Legs
Tuesday: Arms and Abs
Wednesday: Shoulders/Traps
Thursday: Back
Friday: Chest and Abs

... or should I keep doing the 3 times a week, with a day of rest in between?

I run for my aerobic exercise. You can run, walk, dance; whatever you prefer. Just be certain to do aerobics at least 3 – 4 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes each workout. If you are using HIIT or something on that order, obviously you will be spending less time getting in your aerobics.
