Has anyone used complexes and sled training to pack on size successfully?
The reason I ask, is that im following Dan John’s 40 day program, but doing it for 21 days instead. He mentions that he feels complexes are great for size. I posted up a possible routine in that thread but go no answers.
But the main thing would be that if using complexes, you’d probably want to start each workout with a heavy ME type lift, since you wont be able to go quite as heavy in a complex. And then assistance work could be done after the complex, on stuff luck DB rows, curls, face pulls, etc.
As for sled training. If you are using it for size, do you pretty much just treat them like sprints for size? Higher intensity/shorter distances, short rest periods?
Thx for any advice.
-why are you doing the 40 day program for only 21 days?
-how would complexes add significant mass to people who are not completely untrained?
-what are “sprints for size” and who does them?
-how would dragging a sled add significant mass?
-can you please name one single bodybuilder in history who has advocated sprints/sleds/complexes FOR SIZE?
GO HOME!!! Seriously. If you read the article, Dan John mentions you can do it for 40 days or 21 or whatever. He also mentions, that complexes are one of the best methods to add all around mass. Plenty of articles on this very site metion that sleds can be used to build size, without having to load up your spine too much. And no, i cant name a single bb’er who did this, and that is why this is in the STRENGTH SPORTS section.
THEN WHY ARE YOU ASKING SPECIFICALLY ABOUT DOING THIS IN ORDER TO GAIN SIZE YOU FUCKING MORON?
these things will not add significant size. THATS WHY NO BODYBUILDER WOULD EVER DO THEM. FURTHERMORE YOU POSTED THIS IN THE WRONG FUCKING FORUM, YOUR QUESTIONS ARE RELATED TO SIZE, NOT STRENGTH AND SO THIS SHOULD BE IN THE BB SECTION.
YOU ARE A TOTAL MORON.
Don’t be the dick that writes all in CAPS, it’s really not cool
