Hello guys, just recently started reading this site and it’s definately the best bodybuilding site I’ve been to.
I’m a skinny bastard and I’ve been working out for about 6 months. The first 3 months I had no idea what I was doing, then I started reading sites like this and started getting the hang of it.
I have gained about 3kg in the last few months, overall I went from about 130 to 140 in the 6 months so I am still very skinny.
I tried 5x5 for a while and it was OK when I was busy with other things like uni. I felt that the workout load was a little low though.
I just finished university exams and I have a month before the next session of uni starts. I have no commitments at all and I love lifting weights. I have been following a 5x5 3 day a week style program but right now I am hungry to work out more. I believe I could be making progress with a higher volume workout because the day after a workout I feel like I could workout again, in fact I feel like I could workout 6 days a week. I have set up a gym at home with a bench press, barbell and dumbells.
I want to go all out for the next month and build a lot of mass. I guess what I want to know is would it be beneficial for me to start working out 5/6 days a week and doing high volume. Would I just be overtraining and hindering my progress? I feel like I am upto it. Or should I just stay with 3/4 days a week and spend the rest of my break bored on my computer?
