    Is my routine okay?


    I have recently got back in to working out and I'm on a bulk. I have had quite a bit of experience in the past but as you all know strength and weight gains can be quickly lost.

    Anyways, my routine is M W F. I do 1 compound exercise per bodypart. On monday 4 sets of 8 of each exercise; on wednesday 4 sets of 10 and on friday 4 sets of 6 to try and increase weights. This is a routine recommended by a member here named Suncloud.

    So far according to my scale I have put on 10 lbs in two weeks and all of my lifts have gone up in weight. I like it so far. I just know that some people criticize working out the same muscle group multiple times per week (example - I do squats 3 times per week currently)

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    I planned on doing this routine until I stopped seeing gains. I was going to change exercises when I feel I hit a plateau in a particular exercise: example, switch from bench press to DB press.
