I've been experimenting with the optimal rest time between practise sessions to improve fastest. I find it to be to practice once per day only. Anymore, and I will stagnate in progress. What is your practising frequency?

I have my own snooker table (12 feet) and used to practise 3 times per day, but I found that I made no progress at all. It's like weight training: overtrain and your muscles don't grow at all--you need to rest between workouts.
I'm wondering if practising once per day is still too often?

I think the weight-training analogy is completely correct. I am of the opinion that a great deal of muscle memory is involved in the progression of billiard skills. Just like physical muscle power, muscle memory needs time to form.
One practice session per day (carefully planned out) with taking at least two days off per week, and a few spans of about three days off in a row per month seems appropriate.
