so i have been doing 3x5 for some time now and it has been giving me great strength results, but i am not happy with how i grow volume wise to date. i think that might be because i do 5 X 3, low reps low sets.
so what i decided to do was that, i'll add one bodybuilding day a week( friday), where i do sets of 3 x 8, but i am still not growing fast enough( although i have only been doing that for a little while). as i read some article that said training in different rep ranges is good for you
see, in order to full understand this here is my workout plan
i have two full body workout routines workout a and workout b
bench press, leg press, bent over rows( underhand), hyper extensions, shoulder press,preacher curls, dips and leg raises, later at home i do front or back squats depending on the day( 2 days a week i do back squats 1 day front squat, i decide which)
Deadlift, explosive bench press( dynamic focused or whatever you want to call it, i just try to lift the bar as fast as i possibly can, not focusing on how much weight i am using or increasing it, just lift as fast a possible ), chin up/ pull ups ( alternating each workout b ) flies, cable lateral raises, crunches.
So what i was thinking of doing is that on big lifts like deadlift, squat, benchpress and maybe shoulder press(??) i could do 3x5, so that i continue to increase in strength, but on everything else, some other rep range that fits better in with building volume.
what do you think? would that be a good idea?
or should i just stick to the 2 day strength training and 1 day volume building day, and maybe just do 4x8 instead?
