I've had great success with SL5x5 and madcow and then moved into Wendler's 5/3/1 (this spanned about 1.5 years) but would now like to focus a bit more on adding size.
Based on CW's work, which has been great for me in the past I have become a huge advocate of frequently training every body part. Then I came across thiss article:
Based on the foregoing, I devised a new plan for the next 3 months (it starts today).
I lift 4 days a week.
On Mondays I continue my 5/3/1 work. So on Mondays I do Bench, DL, OHP & Squat and I finish with weighted carries.
Tuesdays I do Eiferman/Colbert style full body training (see article referenced above for details). I've added weighted carries and ab work.
Wednesday is a rest day.
Thursdays I do Eiferman/Colbert style full body training again. I've added weighted carries and ab work.
Fridays I do Gironda's style training 8x8 with his specifically stated method of progression (reducing rest periods).
Off Saturday and Sundays.
I'm doing full body training because I noticed that my body responds best when I hit body parts more than twice a week. Also, I've been on a split for the last 3 months (Mondays - 5/3/1 work) plus four day split tues - fri)and I found that the bodyparts that experienced the most hypertrophy are the ones that I hit most frequently.
So while I'm curious as to what you guys think, I intend to move forward with the above stated plan but am open to some recommended modifications.
Also, do you guys think that if I lift on Wednesday and rest only on Saturday/Sunday that will be potentially overtraining? I wouldn't mind training 5 days out of 7. The only reason I only scheduled 4 days a week is for fear of overtraining but I've been training 5 days a week for a while now. I will be on I3g, Plazma & Mag-10 the entire time.
Your thoughts will be appreciated.
