This is my first post. I have a few questions about my regimen that I would like to bounce off of you guys.
I have been lifting heavy for almost a year now. Before that I worked a hard labor job and did P90X three times and before that I was in the military.
I was sucked in recently to the “I, Bodybuilder” program, and I’m on my last week, final 2 workouts. While I DO like a lot of the exercises (a lot of which I had never done before), I have a couple of concerns I would like to share.
I have the time to commit between 1-2 hours in the gym every weekday. I can maintain this pace indefinitely as I very rarely get sore enough to not want to go back every day. But, with this I, Bodybuilder program I find that some days I will only need 30 minutes to complete the entire workout.
I want more! I want to feel more like I am really killing it in the gym. I feel like the harder I hit it, the better my results will be. However, I like the structure that accompanies the program. I like knowing what I’m going to do and how many sets, etc.
Is there a program that I could follow that will allow me to take it to the next level? Or should I accept that this is a reasonable amount of exertion to build muscle as fast as possible?
Here is some info on me that may help to sway your decision:
5’10’’, 167 lbs, 8.5% BF, Max wt bench ~235, Max wt deadlift ~250, Max wt squat ~250
I can do pushups/pullups for days, run for miles (although usually I do intervals), and I have a lot of explosive energy waiting to be tapped into. I feel like a caged animal all the time except for the 1-3 hours after working out.
