    Bulking Routines


    I use Bill Starr's 5x5 routine.I have been using it for the last 6 months.My calorie intake is 4000cals/day,300 grams protein a day,and 500-550carbs a day.My age is 41 and body weight is 163.I am looking for a new routine for my bulk cycle.I realize everyone responds differently.I just want a new routine.

    Max-OT all the way man. The objective of this routine is purely muscle over load. 4-6 reps, basic compound movements and it just makes sense. You only spend 30-40 min in the gym 5 days a week. Some workouts take around 25 min so it is short and sweet but requires maximum effort.

    I concur. Make sure a good % of those calories (I say at least 40%, but maybe even closer to 50%) are lean protein. 4000 cals does sound like a lot, but if they're clean and your protein % is high, no reason you can't bulk with Max-OT. Also, be sure to read about the innovative warmup routine for Max-OT. Not only will it help prevent injuries, but you'll find you can lift heavier too. Win-win! Good luck.

    When reading about the max-OT training on the AST website it can sometimes come off as marketing pitch since they try to sell you their supps to assist with the program sometimes. But I truly do feel these guys genuinely know what they are talking about and the program and tips are all solid. I have had good results with it so far.

    I have used Max-OT off and on for several years and I honestly think that it is the best program for me. Short, but intense WOs that focus on compound movements. Great for size and strength.

    Hm, maybe your firewall is blocking access. I don't use vista so I don't really know to be honest.

    Yeah it's great. I love having felt like I accomplished a great workout in under 30 mins.

    Steel,
    Do you count the warm-ups in the total time elapsed? I do and I have yet to get a workout done in less than 40 minutes, which is still quick. But if I just count the "working" sets, it's definitely 30 min. or less. Including warmup, it's more like 40-50 min. from start to finish, depending on the day. Chest (8 sets) and triceps (6 sets) make up my longest day because there's 14 sets and two warmups. Well, 1 full warm up and 1 "weight acclimation," which still adds some time.

    Koi, not sure why you're having problems with the site. I'm sure they'll figure it out and help you.

    Yeah for total time I do count warm ups but obviously certain days take longer. Shoulder and traps day take only 30 min with warmups. But as you said chest/tris days may take a little over 40. When I first started max-ot the routines did take around 40-50 min but after a few weeks it went much faster. I think just because I was working with more intensity and took 1.5min breaks instead of 2-3m. Plus the more familiar you are with a routine the faster it will go because you have a game plan going into the gym and can workout more efficiently. By this I mean instead of racking the weights after squats you just put them straight onto the leg press and so on. If you have to wait for people then that's always a *****.
