Ok, heres my problem: I need to work my chest twice a week or else I see no gains with it. I also decided to work my thighs twice a week to get rid of my chicken legs.
Now, however, I realize I should probably work my lats twice a week, too. But I'm already working out 4 days a week. I could incorporate a 5th day, but Im hesitant to do that. I have too many muscle groups to work and not enough time. Has anyone else ever had this problem??
it sounds like you need to bring up everything. i'd focus on having a good split. once you've added some size all over, you can start figuring out what body parts are lagging and what you need to focus on.
It looks like an upper/lower split may work well, considering everything gets worked twice a week. You can add in a 5th day to work what you feel is lagging. Thats what I do right now. My 5th day I dedicated completely to arms because I don't have time to work them during the week, so I pound them hard on that 5th day.
^^^ This.. You shouldn't really be focusing on any type of isolation movements until you've reached your size/weight goal. Heavy compound lifts, olympic lifts, and also incorporate different types of pull ups into your workout i.e, wide pulls, close grip pulls, reverse grip chins, etc.... You shouldn't have to worry about focusing on your biceps/triceps directly if you are doing heavy push/pull excersises twice a week. If you aren't sore and gaining, then you aren't lifting heavy enough, eathing enough, or you aren't doing it properly... Good luck
At 6ft 4 and 205 you must be pretty thin, no offence intended here. Hitting your chest twice a week seems pointless to me. You'd be far better off with a split where you squat and deadlift twice a week in my opinion, thats what'll really add the meat to your frame.
ya...the reason i'm only 205 is because of my legs...i have long legs, so i need to put a lot of mass on them to make them look muscular (as opposed to a short guy)...if my lower body were proportionate to my upper body, i would weigh a good deal more...
ok so if i were to try a push/pull routine, I would do this 4 days a week and center around compound movements, correct?
So on push days I would focus on bench and squat, pull days focus on deadlift...someone wanna point me in the right direction, here? Which compound movements should I focus on during these sessions to add the most mass?
I will start this push/pull split, but i really dont see how this is much different than what I have been doing as of late. The only real difference is that i will be doing deadlifts twice a week (I was only doing deadlifts once). Since I was working my chest and thighs twice a week, I was benching and squatting twice a week...
