What?s up guys- first post here.
Anyway, I weigh 194 at around 11-13% body fat. I?ve been lifting for 3 years now. I have been bulking on a full body plan for a few months now. I Made some really good gains in the beginning, but they started to taper off… so now I am doing the total body training program by Chad Waterbury, and I am on week three. The problem is that my lifts are all stagnating, and I have had a few bad workouts in a row, and my weight is starting to drop.
Additionally, my chest is lagging very badly, particularly my lower and inner chest. My biggest difficulty is getting my chest to do the work. When I do any sort of benching (DB or BB) I feel it mostly in my tris, and when I do flies I feel it my shoulders. My max on bench is 205 lbs.
I was thinking about getting on a split to try and fix the problems.
Monday- Back, abs
Tuesday ? Chest, rotator cuffs
Wednesday ? Off
Thursday ? Legs, abs
Friday ? Chest, arms, and shoulders
Saturday ? Rotator cuffs, cardio/off
Sunday ? Off
I was thinking pre fatiguing my chest before bench, ex, 1 set of flies supersetted with 1 set of flat bench x 3. This would hopefully teach my body to use my chest to bench and not my arms.
I plan on bulking for 4-5 more weeks before I start cutting.
Just looking for a little input and some help? What do you guys think? This isn’t meant to start a debate on tbt or splits again, it’s just to see what might work best for me considering my situation Thanks!
