Starting the BossHogg Routine today, had my first "push" workout and boy did i feel good after only a 40 minute workout!
Close Grip Bench
Reverse Grip Pulldowns
Working out monday-wednesday-friday, doing abs/forearms/calves/cardio tuesday and thursday, maybe saturdays
Gainer shake first thing in the morning and after workout+20 minutes 3.5 mph @ 8.5 incline
2 whole eggs, 12 egg whites, scoop of whey (first meal)
12 oz chicken / steak, sweet potatoe, scoop of whey (every 2-3 hours)
Two scoops casein (before bed)
Any tips/criticism much appreciated, looking to improve on all my compound movements... and basically get ****ing huge

And a question about dips: a few weeks ago, i was doing weighted dips, and attempted three plates. the first few reps went good, then at the bottom of the fourth rep, i felt like a crack/pop across my sternum, and I thought my chest split open! Much to my relief I looked down and I was still intact, but to this day I cant even do bodyweight dips without a splitting pain, although i can do any other chest exercise (bench, flyes, pullovers, push ups, etc) just fine. any ideas?

I love the bosshogg routine, i ran it for about 9months. My only suggestion is to keep intensity high, otherwise this routine is not that great. But, with high intensity its great. Dont add too much to it, and yes tons of chins and dips would be great

ive been doing this routine for like two weeks now (third week tomorrow) and its rediculous fun, my strength is going up each week and i love the feeling of constantly pushing and pulling crazy weights. just gotta get my sleep and diet on point (winter recess was this week so my diet went to ****) and we'll see how far i can push this!
as far as chins and dips, you think i could include them before the workout as a kind of warm up or should i just adjust the exercises im doing to fit them in?

12oz chicken + a scoop of whey is way overkill for anyone except a 300 pound pro. NO need for 100g of protein at each meal

but then again chicken and steak are whole food sources and provide a different variety of amino acids and more calories than just guzzling protein shakes

I'd think at your age the parents are willing to buy you the food without question but put a budget on the protein?
It's all good though, just use whatever works for you but don't think either is better or worse on their own (not considering all circumstances) I know food and protein each work best for me at different times in my day and life. Will say most bloated I ever was when I sent to straight protein shakes during finals in college.

i think 100g of protien or more each meal is very possible to digest....
do u think a fu*king caveman only digested 30-60g protien every time he killed a buffalo?
plus its a very different period of digestion whey vs chicken ...

You WILL digest anything you eat - nothing will get wasted it will just be turned into very expensive sugar.
Also you simplistic caveman idea... They would go days without any protein, starvation and super compensation changes your body juuuuust a little

so its been about four weeks since i started the program, and ive definately gone up in all my lifts, but ive gained some unwanted fat, and i havent put on much muscle, except for in my quads and back. My arms look like theyve lost some mass. My abs have gone from a six pack to barely a four pack, ive developed love handles, and my glutes/chest are starting to get, for loss of a better word, just plain droopy. ive cut out the carbs after my 5 o clock meal, switched out the casein for 1 1/2 cups of cottage cheese, and switched from a whole sweet potatoe to only half. im constantly tired even though im getting 6-8 hours of sleep, and over the passed week my workouts have gone downhill. Now i know you are supposed to put on some fat during bulking, but its packing on way too fast. what should i do?

How many times a day are you eating and long do you wait between meals?
Reason I ask is because I recently went from eating every 2 hours to eating every 3.5-4.5 hours. I still eat the same amount at the end of the day but I'm not force feeding myself every 2 hours. Also I take 5 grams of BCAAs 2 hours after every meal. I haven't lost any mass like I thought I would. In fact I look fuller and my waist is thinning out. I'm also not as bloated and i don't feel as tired thru out the day.
