View Full Version : Any big difference?

I am interested in the following Hardgainer routine. Was going to make it a Tues/Friday schedule, it would be of benefit to which Day 1 and Day 2, or is that just being too picky, for lack of a better word. What rep ranges, number of sets would be best suited with this routine. And should I get my 1RM on this lifts before I start the routine?? Thanks :cool:
Pull-up or Pull-down
Bench Press or Incline Press

What are your goals? what does your old routine look like? what is your diet like? These need to be answered before i can give any advice, but as a general statement the routine looks pretty solid for a true hardgainer.

goals=get strong as ox
diet=350g protein, carbs 150-200g none after 5pm, mostly solid foods, some shakes
Old routine=high/med volume training 5 days a week.
When I first started training 2 years ago I went up in strength and size. Of course everyone will grow right off the bat with anything really, although the past year I have gotten weaker and weaker and just decided that I have to get something done. Do I know if I am a true hardgainer?? Not sure but I am going to find out what type of training works for me, because high/med volume doesn't work and just beats me up.

Well, if you are bulking i would bump up the cals a bit. What is your total? Well because you were training 5 days a week i would suggest dropping it down to a three day split. I do not recover great but i am also not a hardgainer and i can only do three days. I am doing a WSB type of format for my lifts right now. I would try a set up like this if i were you.
I would only do main exercise for each body part with a rep range of 4-6 and no more than two sets per exercise after warmups. Keep the main exercises changing every few weeks.
And do your deads on leg day, 2 days is not enough for your CNS to recover. Have you read all of the articles in that section of the board? I not i suggest you do as this will clear a lot of things up for you.
