3 Day Program for Building Mass?

Hi


Does that program look like a good one?

Do anyone think it is possible to just train squats 3 reps for 3 sets and no other leg training? My legs are big enough, as it is, furthermore, I do not fit in my pants any more. Moreover, do anyone think it is possible to train jackknives (ab exercise) in addition to the program two times a week on workout days? Furthermore, how much under my 5RM should I start in order to gain as much size as possible? The supplements I take are mulitvitamin, fish oil, whey protein and kre-alkalyn. Moreover, I try to digest 4200kcals a day (bulking).

I have been working out for 15 months and I have a high metabolism. My diet is good, I am 19 years old and my goal is get a bigger upperbody.

Thank you very much for answering.

Anybody who knows?

Working out for only 15 months and your legs are already too big! WOW! (sarcasm)

The long and short of this is you have asked a bunch of very specific questions that nobody can answer as it relates to anyone other than themselves.

Anything is “possible” as far as avoiding an untimely death if you do it. How effective it will be is something you have to find out for yourself. Personally I would spend some time above 5 reps for size though there are some guys who get pretty large on volume programs centering on lower reps.

You’re asking this like it was a car part or something. “Will this fit?” It doesn’t work like that with individual people.

Thank you for answering. However, has anyone here tried the program?

How big are your legs that you don’t want em bigger?

A voice of reason in the maelstrom of lunacy this forum is becoming. Advice like this, although seemingly intuitive, is now rare and valuable to the point that Tirib should probably charge for it.

OP: do the program if you want to…what’s the difference? It’s not like a gold medal is on the line if it doesn’t work perfectly for you. I know you think it’s harmless and you’re just asking questions and all that, but you’re focusing on the wrong things. Here’s a list of factors that are more important than program design:

-Effort
-Consistency
-Attitude/Belief in what you are doing
-Recovery
-Nutrition

These are all vast areas that can take a long time to get just right. On the other hand, you have a written program that you just have to show up and follow. Focus your mental energy on training like an animal in the gym, arranging your schedule so that you can train fresh with maximal levels of motivation, giing yourself some time to relax and prepare yourself mentally for battle.

Take the time to set your kitchen up perfectly so that it supports your eating strategy. Take contrast showers. Get a massage. Do some foam rolling. Stretch.

It ain’t just about the weights.
