I’m pretty new to the forums, but I’ve been reading T Nation articles religiously for several months now. I would appreciate some feedback on my current training plan; here’s some background info.
I’m 23 years old, 5’11”, and 173lbs now at roughly 12-14% body fat. I started lifting back in February of this year. At that time I was around 160lbs, and 14-15% body fat. So I’ve made some decent newbie gains despite some less than ideal routines.
Around two months ago I read a T Nation article that basically said “if you can’t bench 225 for reps, then you should be doing a full body routine”. Thus my search a good full body routine started. I finally landed on Leroy Colbert’s 6 sets per muscle group routine. I train MWF and have different exercises for all 3 days, as recommended. I usually always stay in the “hypertrophy range” of 8-12 reps. I’ve been doing the routine for going on 6 weeks now. I enjoy it, but wonder if it’s the best option? It’s a very intense routine, and I’m usually dead by the end of it. I just want to make sure I make the most of my newb gains.
All feedback and recommendations are appreciated.
