Just saw this. I am currently on a "full body kick" right now but that's just because I'm trying to be more functional
Actually that's not totally off base. I was getting too big/heavy for my needs. I don't want to say gaining too much muscle but I wasn't turning into a fatty so take that for what you will.
When I was in the mode of gaining most of the limited size that I have I trained on a body part split. I dabbled with 5/3/1 for a little while but for the most part I was always working on getting stronger consistently in the big lifts.
I had to move away from virtually all OHP'ing movements because of a torn labrum but have had some success implementing mountain dog shoulder routines. I really feel that this is helpful and have never had such pumps in my delts before. My shoulders are a weak point that I'm trying to bring up but I think they are slowly on their way.
Diet wise I have always focused on trying to get in anywhere between 1-2 grams of protein per pound of body weight and limiting my "dirty" food choices.
Not ELIMINATING just limiting. I believe in the motto of "all things in moderation." I still eat "junk" foods but just try to not eat them all the time.
I never abandoned cardio but would just do less when I wanted to add more size and do a little more when things got out of hand.
Let me know what else you'd like to know. I'm more than happy to share and help out in any way I can.
