Alright...here we go.
I started building this year (after a few years ago, but i didnt know ANYTHING about programs/nutrition...So i consider this year my first year of knowledgable lifting). I started off with a 5 day split, 4-6 rep range, and made CRAZY gaines.. like seriously insane gains, upwards of adding 20 pounds to my squat rep weight in a month. I kept making gains for months. Then I started reading Waterbury and about how everyone is doing it and making great gains...and for some reason I stopped my result-producing program.
I have now made minimal gains in strength and size and and going back to my old ways. I will be doing this for 2 more months, finishing up my builking cycle (12 months, coming up on 50 pounds with a semi cut thrown in...probably about 10 months total). Wish me luck!
Any one else had a similar experience, or can attest to the power of a typical bodybuilder 4-5 day split?
