ok so i read this new mass routine in FLEX magazine today. before you guys yell at me I know not to trust these fitness magazines but this routine seemed intriguing to me. It came with the routine itself and a nutrition plan (which was basically 3500 cals a day).
for this “cycle” you do 2 exercises per muscle group and 5-6 sets each. This is called the “pump cycle” because each set is reps from 15-30! I find that odd but what do I know lol.
this cycle is 3-4 exercise with 4-6 sets. the rep range is on more 8-12 based.
this week is considered “rest and grow”. high volume and high intensity. rep ranges from 8-15
so thats the system…obviously my main question is do you think this is a good program?
right now im doing a periodization routine
off or repeat
sets of 12,10,8,6,4,10-12. 4-5 exercises per body part.
I know this is a long post but Id really like some knowledgeable posts on whether its a good system or even if my periodization is a good one either and which is better.
