I’ve been lifting weights off and on since I was in High School. I’ve always maintained a pretty muscular body at 5’8 175lbs. A couple of months ago I was surfing through this website when I came upon a link to a bulking routine. It was the 20 rep squat program or a variation of it. I do a full body routine three days a week. Sometimes I’ll change up the exercises a bit for a certain body part (eg. I’ll do inclines one day, flat the second and declines) I added pullups to the routine as well.
I am currently serving overseas in the U.S. Army so my nutrition is good but I don’t measure anything (calories, protein, carbs, ect.) However, I do drink about 16oz of milk with my three meals a day and I suck down 40g of protein when I wake up, after training and before bed. I have been on this program now for seven weeks. I got on the scale yesterday and to my astonishment I was 192! I couldn’t believe it. Like I said, I don’t measure anything but I have not noticed any fat accumulation at all. I’m pretty excited about my gains. I think that I will stick to this routine for another eight weeks (when I redeploy).
I’m not sure how long this routine will last or what type of routine to transition to, but I’ll continue to surf this website and hopefully figure it out!
