I’ve been weight training for about 2.5 years and having a naturally slim build have found the going slow (about 7 kilos muscle gain). I train a 3 day split routine Chest/triceps, Back/biceps, Shoulders/ legs. Generally about 3 exercises per group starting with compound then isolating. I try to vary the exercises used as well as reps, intensity and diff things such as drop set etc.
My question is based upon reading a recent Iron Man article by Jonathon Lawson & Steve Holman talking about ROM & Xreps where the guys showed great gains in 4 weeks. I would like to try an intensive program of some kind where I would dedicate myself physically as well as nutritionally in an attempt to see what gains are possible for myself if I was trying to do everything right. I know if I get good gains then I will be motivated to train harder and pay attention to my diet etc more.
Am I fooling myself or is it possible to see good gains in this time and if so…Can anyone please reccommend a solid program. I was going to try their x-rep based program but have read some negative feedback. I dont want to waste my time.
