    Questions about bulking routines


    Alright so recently I learned that more compound, HIT type programs are better for bulking than isolations,

    I found this routine on bodybuilding.com

    Squats 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Leg Extensions 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Leg Curls 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Dumbbell Pullovers 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Barbell Overhead Shoulder Press 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Seated Rows 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Bench Press 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Barbell Bicep Curls 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Tricep Extensions 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Weighted Pullups 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Weighted Dips 1 X 8 - 10 reps
    Standing Calf Raises 1 X 8 - 12 reps
    Abs - 1 X 10 - 15 reps

    Everyother day you do this, No i know you can sub excercises and what not, but my question is there are different sections of every muscle so how is one set of flat bench press going to stimulate growth in the upper lower, and middle parts of your chest?

    And when it comes to subing, can it be ANY excercise?

    Because dumbell pullovers really bother my rotater cuff, so doing heavy weight will definately rip something haha, but what other motion works what that does?

    also, would it defeat the purpose if i did more than one set per excercise?


    Thanks guys.

    You may want to move this to the Workout section. This is bulking but more nutrition based.

    Look at the path of where this thread is posted:

    AnabolicMinds.com Forum > Nutrition Forum > Bulking

    This is the bulking section of the nutrition group, the question asked is better suited for the training section.

    In recent studies, they found the all 3 responses to be completely useless.

    My bad for trying to point you in the right direction.

    What you are talking about is very similar to HST.

    Your opinion on HST training?

    You sure they weren't talking about the uselessness of this thread in that "study":
    Just for fun..


    All they were stating was the fact that your posted a TRAINING based question in a NUTRITIONAL section of the form, therefore pointing out an error (and a way to get your answers) in your post and making andmaking it completly legitimate.
