What type of gains (strength/size) did you make with current, and how long were you running it?

MMA Max 10-11-2010 06:06 PM

I am making MASSIVE gains..I gained 5lbs of muscle..I am at 185 solid, I put pics up..Its making me thick as a tank..I don't know my body fat..

I am getting strong as hell as well..Bench numbers flying up, Just all around lifts are soaring..I have ran this style for about 3 weeks now..

Im treating most weights like my ho! lol..120 db's are light..Rowing 6 plates for reps..Gonna hit 7 and 8,

This could go

Tuesday-
1) DB Rows - heavy for Reps x 5 sets
2) DB Shrugs - heavy for Reps x 5 sets
3) DB Side Laterals x 5 sets
4) Hammer Str Row - x5 sets Heavy for reps
5) Flat Bar cable curls- x 5 sets

Hmm, toughie here, DB rows are good for traps, and then with the DB shrugs on top of that, I almost want to suggest dropping the shrugs and keeping side laterals, I personally like side raises, good shiz.

Wednesday
1)Front Squat- 10 sets for reps
2) Hindu Squats - 1 x 100
3) lunges- x5 sets
4) SLDL- x5 sets
5) Calves

Good to drop

Thursday
1) Bench - Max Effort
2) Incline bb Press - for reps
3) Forward Dips - x 5 sets
4) B.T.N push Press - x 5 sets
5) Cable triceps push down - Stack x 5 for reps

Dips are raw as hell, maybe go x3 instead of x5

Friday
1) Deadlift x 5 sets for reps
2) Front Squat- Heavy - x 5 sets
3) Pull ups x5sets
4) BB Shrugs - x 5 sets - Heavy for reps
5) Ab Wheel- x 5 sets

Keep this, and superset your pull-ups with BB Shrugs ;)

Just want to see what some of you think.

tis what I think.

Q? If it is working what makes you think about changing it?

Then I would stay the course.

Either way you'll be fine. That's a large volume, and the way you train, I think you would probably make the same gains on fewer sets. But do what keeps you happy.
