Thanks for the new article, it is awesome. I'm finishing my final week of Total Body Training - then, after a week of rest I'll tackle your new program or Quattro Dynamo. I must say, "The Art of Waterbury" looks very tempting.
My chest has always been my weak bodypart; doing 100 RTBM, training the compounds hard and adding some isolation work 3 times a week has made a HUGE difference in my chest's appearance.
From your Rep/Set Bible and The Art of Waterbury; training a muscle group 4 times a week seems to be reasonable (within my current reach anyway). Am I right in thinking 4 times a week is just half of what is possible in the long run? Eventually, I would like to put my bodyparts I'm happy with on a decent amount of volume (training them 2 times a week) and really blast my chest using some AM PM training, supersets (within your set/rep limits), and plain old increased frequency. I know it would have to be introduced slowly, but I have the sinking feeling that you've pushed your training beyond 4 times a week.
Like I said 2 weeks ago - I've lowered my calories slightly (300-500 a day); stripped a bit of fat (amazingly enough, that amount of calorie difference seems to have made a slight difference in my recovery; I feel a lot better "bulking" than on a modestly reduced calorie diet). I'm at a decent bodyfat and look forward to 4 a week training. Great articles and feedback.
