    best workout for size and strength?


    I have heard deadlifts are the best and i just put them in my program. What do u think is the best workout to put on some size? I just don't get the burn from the deadlifts as much as other workouts.

    There is no "best" workout for size and strentgh. Ronnie Colmans program has help made him a monster. You would probably get smaller an weaker on it every week. lifting is a VERY individulaized thing. Read everything you can about training for "average" lifters, nit what the pro's are doing. Then pick a basic reoutine that has you in the gym no more than three days a week doing basic compound movements. Until you ae benching 250-275 for reps, and squatting and deadlifting with 350-450 for reps there is no damn reason in the world to be doing 3 excercises a bodypart and a whole bunch of sets.

    I think my workout program is in check. I have been reading about DC's style of training and have been doing that for a month and I'm loving it. I used to do endless sets per bodypart and just work it out once a week and though i have pretty good size it did not match up withhow much time and effort i put in the gym. I don't think I will ever go back to that type of training again.

    You probably not going to want to hear this but you need to experiment and see what works for you. Every one is different. Do not be afraid to experiment either. Allot of people talk about over training like it's AIDS. What works for me might not work for you. Do not take any one person's advise as gospel. There are people on here that do great on a low volume HIT type of training protocol and get results. That type of training regimen never worked for me personally. Also remember that no routine will produce results forever. It's best to change it up every month or so. Also, stay away from the routines in bodybuilding mags. Many times it's not really how they train any way.That being said it has been my experience that free weights and compound movement will produce the best muscle gain. Stick with Bench press, squats, dead lifts ect. So pretty much any exercise that makes you feel like your going to throw up after wards is the way to go. Stay away from machines and isolation exercises. Keep your work outs under 45 minutes ( not including a warm up). Also if you are just starting out which it appears you are DO NOT take steroids or prohormones. I have seen many people who say they can't grow until they started the x routine. What they fail to mention is they started taking steroids on the x routine. For some reason it never occurred to them that maybe it's the steroids and not the routine that is giving them the gains. Then they think that they x routine is the only way to train and anyone that trains differently is wrong. Learn to grow naturally before you consider anything like that. Read as much as you can about training.

    Paul,

    DoggCrapp, which I think you are referring to with DC, is an excellent routine for size and strength.

    As far as specific lifts go, it's hard to say. Lifts that stimulate as many muscle groups as possible would be your answer. Squats, deads, olympic style lifts...

    We've all done it. Do a search on something and than post in that thread forgetting that it isn't current.
