My Bulk Routine?


Hey guys I am working on a bulk routine for me and my brother to start on the beginning of July. Ive always done 3 days weeks. I am thinking about upping it to 4 days hitting everything twice.

Day 1: Chest, Shoulders, Tris

Flat Bench BB - 3x6-8
Incline Flys - 3x6-8
Seated Press DB - 3x6-8
Lateral Raises - 3x6-8
Skull Crushers - 3x6-8
Rope Pulley Overhead Ext - 3x6-8

Day 2: Legs, Back, Bis

Dead Lifts - 3x6-8
Leg Press - 3x6-8
Leg Curls - 3x6-8
Rows - 3x6-8
BB Curls - 3x6-8
Seated Alternating Curls - 3x6-8
Calf Raises - 3x8-12

Day 3: Chest, Shoulders, Tris

Incline DB Press - 3x6-8
Decline Flys - 3x6-8
Standing BB Press - 3x6-8
Upright Rows - 3x6-8
Weighted Bench Dips- 3x6-8
Tri Pushdowns - 3x6-8

Day 4: Legs, Back, Bis

Hack Squats - 3x6-8
Roman Dead Lifts - 3x6-8
Weighted Pullups - 3x6-8
Machine Rows - 3x6-8
Hammer Curls - 3x6-8
Reserve Grip Curls - 3x6-8
Calf Raises - 3x8-12

I work out at a little college gym...so no Squat Rack. I am hoping Deads and Hack Squats will do.
Let me know what you guys think.
Im gonna track the workout and progress on the Nation at the start of July looking to put on some pounds.


I’d actually like to know what other guys think of such a routine, as I had been considering doing one similar myself… Apologies to OP if he thought this was gonna be me giving advice…


Ramped sets or straight sets? If those are all straight sets I don’t see you progressing very well. I can only speak for myself, and wouldn’t presume to give advice, but I would never do that routine personally.
