bulking and powerlifting/routine

  1. bulking and powerlifting/routine


    does powerlifting get u big im currently doing a upperbody workout oneday and lowerbody the next is this enough to bulk or is powerlifting better... im new to am ..... so ur advice would really help

    workout routine would look like this

    monday=back
    tuesday=leggs
    wednesday=chest
    thursday=calves
    friday=arms

    if u guys can give any hints on adjusting that would help too


  2. you can "bulk" on any routine, but lifting heavy is always a must, whether powerlifting or using higher rep schemes.

    Powerlifting is beneficial as it increases strength, which every weightlifter needs, but it won't cause hypertrophy as drastically as bodybuilding regimens.

    Also a five day split powerlifting routine wouldn't be the best option, from my experience. Read up on the subject, check out t-nation or google powerlifting workouts and search here on the forum.

    Edit: you're 5'5" 135lbs, you need to start with reasonable goals - learn the lifts and get form down pat BEFORE attempting powerlifting. Lookup "Starting Strength" by Mark Rippetoe and Alwyn Cosgrove. Great beginner programs

  4. Try:

    monday=chest/shoulders
    tuesday=back/traps
    wednesday=off
    thursday=arms
    friday=legs/calves

    or

    monday=chest/tri
    tuesday=back/bi
    wednesday=off
    thursday=shoulders/traps
    friday=legs/calves

  5. It all depends on your own kind of workout mines like this
    Monday-Bi's
    Tuesday-Chest
    Wednesday-Tris
    Thursday-Back
    Friday-Shoulders/Traps

    Depends on whateva works best for u but learn routines first then youll be on your way cuz im still on my way
