Too little volume?
I am currently eating around 500 calories above tdee. Also, I am currently doing a 3 day fullbody routine every week.
Example: Monday: flat bench, pull ups, shoulder press, upright row, dips, curls, leg ext, leg curl, machine leg press, calf raises.
Wed: Incline bench, lat pull down, s press, upright row, dips, curls, leg ext, leg curl, machine leg press, calf raise,
So is this too little volume for gaining muscle on my calorie surplus? I do a 5x5. I don't want to have the extra calories going to waste/fat. I am using a note book to track so that I can go up in weight as often as possible. I
I am thinking, after watching this video: *edit* I can not post URLS yet but the video titled Help! I Am Skinny And Want To Build More Muscle - BBOD #119 by this forums owner.
that I should do 4/5 sets with as many reps like he suggested. Would that be better? Or doing drop sets one week and then the next week doing a 15 sec rest after the last set then going for extra reps. Or, do I need to switch to a 4 day split? I really like the 3 days of weights as it fits nicely in my schedule.
Also, I will do cardio a couple times per week when it warms up.
Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.
