In brief: Depends on you

Frequent is more frequent for you.
If you always poop 3 times a day then that is normal for you. If you always poop every other day then that is normal for you. If you are a once a day popper most of the time and all of a sudden you start pooping 6 times a day, then that would be "frequent bowel movements" for example.
