After reading alot of your posts , I have done some huge changes to my routine. I was doing a 4 day split with 3 sets for almost all exercises. I have changed it to 3 days a week, push-legs-and pull. Have dropped all sets to 2, (not including a couple of warmup sets here and there). I do my two sets with more intensity then before, especially the last one, I give it my ALL!! let me tell you, my strength gain over the past 3 weeks have been INCREDIBLE!! i truely feel like I'm in the sweet spot. I added almost 5lbs to almost every exercise this week!! I have been keeping all my progress in a journal to make sure I always try to lift a bit more weight, or do and extra set or 2 every week.
It was really hard to get in my head that less might actually be better for me, but now I'm just laughing in the gym when I'm lifting more every week. My friend just started to workout with me for the first time ever in his life, he is in his second week with me doing the exact same thing and he is also making really good gains.
If you are not feeling gains in your current routine from one week to the next, I would really advise in chaning it. Before my gains came, but slowley, now I feel like I'm just throwing the weight on every week. WICEKD STUFF MATE!!!
true this routine might not be the best for everyone, but right now it's doing great for me!
I'll be sure to put up some before and after pics sometime in December. I'm 6'2 200lbs right now, let see what this body can really do!
