Hey all. I’m fairly new to lifting (ran track in high school) but i am looking to bulk.
I’m 5"11 and 175 (did StrongLifts 5x5 for about 2 months and gained 10 lbs from there)
Goals: at 4 months
WOuld like some help on these, not sure if they are realistic. I have done a fair amount of research on nutrition and recovery. I was doing 3 full body workouts a week with the 5x5 routine, but the more i read the more i find that a 3 or 4 day split would be better for gaining.
My 3 day split that i have put together so far is this:
day 1: chest(bench, incline bench) Biceps(BB curls, hammer curls, others?)
day 2: Legs (Squat, leg press, calf raises)
day 3: Back (pull ups, chin ups, BB rows, others/better lifts?) Triceps (weighted dips, Others?)
So as you can see i would love some advice on improving my workout. I plan on eating roughly 4000Kcals per day, 200g protein as well. I always get about 8-9 hours of sleep(more on weekends)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Different/ better exercises and rep/set range (thinking 3-4 sets at 6-9 reps as well as some attainable gaining goals for the the next 4 months.
