Is it better to work one muscle group a day or multiple groups?

Multiple, as long as you don't do opposing muscle groups (ex. Biceps and Triceps in the same day).

It depends on what your are looking for as far as strength or gains go.

Take a strongman vs. bodybuilder look to it. Bodybuilders tend to target specific groups on different days, letting the muscles recover for longer periods of time to get the full effect of the hypertrophy effect. Strongmen rarely, if ever, isolate a portion of their body for a workout, instead doing overall body workouts.

For overall health and strength though, and if you are not a bodybuilder or looking to get huge, multiple groups should be hit in a workout.

I think multiple groups on one day stimulate a bigger response from your body as far as anabolic hormones go.
