Any Help w/ Thib Plan



Ive hit a bit of a rut in my training so im looking for a new training plan and i have 2 questions i was wondering if anyone could help.

1st question.... the other day whilst browsing i found a link to a training plan done by Christian Thibaudeau... i wrote it all down but ive lost it and now i can find the thread for the life of me..
im making my way thru all his articals but its going to take a while, so if any one knows the thread and can post it, i would be v.v.v thankfull...
The plan from what i remember was an optimal volume workout plan that incorporated about 5 supersets in each training day which consisted of 5 reps and 5 set in each exercise and was a four day a week plan.

2nd question...i would was woundering if i could get some feedback on this training plan as a bulking plan?
