I have been training consistently for the past year and a half. Since I started working out, I always did basically the same thing that revolved around a 5 day split routine consisting of
With abs and calf work spread throughout the week. This as lead me to good gains, well fairly 32 pounds of muscle mass and more than two inches on my arms
My training methodology consisted of doing sets with reps lower than 6, and lifting as heavy as i could. I would always favor "raw exercice" to normal gym rat exercice, or, in other word, i deadlift, squat, bench, military press, do chin ups, etc... and
I bust my butt everyday at the gym, and i overeat in order to gain muscle mass. Im still doing mass and strenght gain, but it has slowed down.
Now the question is, I believe it would be a fitting time to change my training routine, is there some sort of program out there who would be different than what im doing right now and that would allow me to make tremendous gain, particularly strenghtwise. I only wish to gain and other 8 pounds of muscle mass.
Here are my stats
5.11, 172 lbs with a bf% around 10
I dont know my 1rm, so here are my 5 rm
Front squat: 210
Military press: 120
Pull ups: 14 in a row
Seriously, I would like a program like rippetoe's, but i would rather be working out 4 days a week.
My focus is to gain strenght (in the pl lifts) , to reach a bw of 180, and to gain 15 inches with my guns (they are 14 and a quarter at the moment)
Any ideas about a new routine?
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Have a great, blessed day.
