Can you? Yes. Will you be happy afterwards? Probably not.


IMHO that is a ton of volume for three consecutive days. That said, no one will really know until you try it.

That's a very specialised routine for a very specific purpose and without being too presumptuous I don't think that's for you.

Going off your FB link (hello Andrew!) I think something more along the lines of a full body routine would suit you better. You need more work on the hard exercises. Not less work with the bulk of that being on the fluff exercises.

Sure that you feel more sore on this routine, because it is gonna kill you sometime, if you are not on a ton of performance enhancing drugs.

In my opinion you can't recover from such a high volume workout three days in a row, if you are natural. Btw your profile says that you have half a year of exp in training, so a split may probably not be optimal for you as well.

Soreness only indicates connective tissue inflammation. If that is your goal, stick to a split.

If you want muscle building, use a full body. It's what you need right now.

This is merely one workout you could do:

Starting strength is another:

Also Starr workouts:

As bendthebar pointed out, why not do full body or work on 3 lifts (squats, bench, deadlifts) and build muscle? Trust me, there is lot to be done in these 3 lifts, it takes some time to master these, may be years. You will get used to the soreness caused by full body routines. Just give it time and don't rush things, select a decent full body routine, and I'm sure it won't exceed 4 days a week. You have 3 days in the week to recover from soreness.

Give it a try, bendthebar has given you some useful links, which are decent routines for beginners. Run the entire cycle, eat well and you will see the changes.

Happy training.
