When i started bulk 2 months ago my stats were
100 pounds, 9 % body fat, 27 waist, 5 feet 5 inches tall 26 y male . Was ON BFFM by tom venuto from march 2005 to July 2005.
Ok now my stats are
107 pounds weight, 12.5 % body fat 28 waist line and the rest are all the same.
I am presently taking 2200 cal/ day with a breakup of 40 % carbs, 35 % proteins and 25 % fats.
I have checked ian kings and Poliquins articles and i just dont know what to do . Can someone help me customize my workout please
I have been experimenting with my workouts eversince these two months and this is what i have come up with and have been using it religiously for the last two weeks and its my third week now.If you are a professional it may be flawed but thats exactly why i posted this so someone can throw in some expert advice.
I used all the intenet sources and Toms book ( pages 300-305 ) and this is what i came up with. Let me know if i am overtraining and if anyone can throw in the TEmpo for all the exercises i would really appreciate that. I use only free weights and workout at home on my bench and swiss ball.
Train 4 times a week ( i am using toms intermediate routine variant 1 "aggressive" ) alternatively the same routine has a variant 2 more conservative three times a week with day two of week 1 replacing day 1 of week 1 in week two.
Basically i am an ectomorph but a short variant i guess thats why you would see me training my forearms alot.

I keep a log of all my workouts and compare all my workouts for ex. split A on week 1 mondays with split A on week 2 mondays and set 1 with set 1 next week ans so on..I have been making progress by either increasing weight or increasing reps every next workout except my shoulders . I get really tired after my chest routine.
Anyways, i have kept the same progress and have increased weight and reps in 1 out of the four shoulder exercises. Same goes for my biceps i guess they are always fatigued after my Db or barbell rows that i do for back.Yes no chinup or pull up as i dont have a bar for that yet and no decline presses as my bench does not decline.
any feedback would be highly appreciated.
