ive just started bulking out and i wanna make sure my routine isnt too far out of place before i get into it too long. seems like alot of people around here have questions about bulking including myself. ive been working out for 11 months now. my height is 6'1" in feb 05 i weighed a staggering 146 pounds before i started lifting, now 11 months later i weigh 166 lbs still the same height 18 years old btw. so now im starting to bulk up cuz ive accomplished having the extremely cut look now i wanna get the muscles swoll.
the main muscles i work on are biceps, triceps, forearms, chest, abs, and just recently i started legs up again.
ive read several articles on bulking and it always says to only work the muscle once a week it seems like.... but since i dont work alot of other muscles in my body wouldnt it be ok to work my chest and biceps twice a week to bulk?
my bulking routine for my chest right now is i do the warmup then i do 3 reps of 60% of my max, 3 reps of 70%, 3 rep 80%, then i TRY to do 3 reps of 90% ( i can usually get two). i do this w/ flat, incline, and decline. my max is currently 215
for arms i started bulking on them just this week and im doing 5 sets of 3 reps w/ 95lbs. next week or the week after i plan on adding 5 pounds to it.
