    total body, compound moves - three times per week. something like:

    squats
    bench
    deads
    military press
    clean and press
    pull ups or chins

    4 sets of 8 on monday, 4 sets of 10 on wednesday, 4 sets of 6 on friday, but you add 2.5 plates per side on friday. every month you're going up by 20 pounds in weight, and always altering reps - those are keys for growth - changing things up and going up in weight.

    you could add more compound moves to the above, but those are the basics for adding some size.

    Gaining mass in a nutshell (a big nutshell)

    this should give you a good start.

    eat less if you're cutting, eat more if you're bulking. the food that builds muscle never changes, nor the exercises.

    the numbers sound good. regardless of the fat amount, your body is USED to holding weight, which makes your joints a little stronger than super skinny guys. whats your body fat at?

    5:30 AM- Wake up - 75g WMS + 25g PROTEIN - you're going swimming and will burn all those calories up

    6-8 AM Swim @ Ball Pool

    8:15 AMBreakfeast - 4 eggs, mix 1 scoop of whey in milk and add it to a cup of granola - hitting the weights soon

    8:30-9:30 Lifting @ Weight room - finish with 75g WMS + 25-35g protein

    10-12 Homework in Library - snack on nuts or string cheese

    12-1 Business Law - nuts or string cheese after class

    1-2 English - same

    3-6 Lunch//Nap/ Homework - turkey or tuna on wheat, no mayo


    6:45 - WMS + protein. this is redundant, but swimming will burn up gobs of calories.
    7-9 Swimming @ Lewellen pool

    9:15 Dinner - steak or chicken breast, with brown rice

    bedtime - 2 tbsp natural peanut butter

    this sounds right. you'll have to adjust portions to meet your needs, but the timing, amount of protein, etc should be pretty good. swimming that much is going to lean you out like crazy. some of the pro swimmers just do mcdonalds and fast food because of how fast their metabolism is.

    waxy maize starch. its a fast digesting carb. you can also do dextrose. pure sugar won't kill you if you're burning off the carbs from swimming. WMS is considered to be better for your health, but the way you will burn through calories, it probably won't matter.

    also, the speed of absorption will help make sure that you're not swimming on a full stomach.

    listen to sun cloud, seriously. take notes and pay attention, if i had actually listened and done what he suggested i wouldnt have wasted 3 months.

    My suggestion along with everything sun cloud says, do a 5x5. Stronglifts starting strength is a good one, its what ive been using and im seeing some great progress

    those are the staples. protein and carbs + what you have up there are all you will need to gain for about 1-2 years.

    Sun, I like this, I would like to give it a shot after my current routine is up.

    But a question, how does the 6-8-10 work with lifts like the presses, pulls and chins?

    Doing all of those in a day, 3x a week would be brutal!

    I guess I'm looking at it like a modified 5x5 with workout A and B. So I can see the progression with squats, but I'm trying to wrap my head around how I'd do 6-8-10 and add 5lbs per week to each lift? Ideas or can you point out what I'm missing?

    its similar to the 5x5 in that provided you're in good shape, you'll recover faster than you think. to get down to doing this three times a week takes some work. you might try it twice a week until your body starts recovering faster.

    for pulls/chins, just add a weight belt, or hold a DB with your feet. the theory here (i did this for a couple months) is that when you add 5 pounds, you drop the reps to make it possible. you can't just add 5 lbs, do as many reps, and have the same recovery - not possible. so you add the weight on friday, since you'll have three days to recover from it rather than two. then you up the reps till 10, and do it all over again.

    when i did this, it took my body 3 weeks before i could do this three times per week. it is hard, but it does work. the 5x5 works on the same principle. some workouts you do every other day, sometimes the same body part - squats i remember are like this. the key to doing a workout every other day is you cannot train the muscle like a pro bodybuilder.

    nowhere in the 5x5 does the same muscle do multiple exercises, unless those muscles are playing secondary roles. the above are the 6 exercises that will challenge you, while not repeating the same movement. the clean and press, while putting a contradiction to my words, will help tie your connector muscles together, and help teach your muscles to work with one another. try this workout for a couple months and you'll see what i mean. whether its vaulting a fence, restraining your dog, picking up your kid, you'll notice how much easier many of your daily movements are.

    when you become stuck - you cannot increase the weight, switch the movement for something similar. squat for front squat, deadlifts for sumo deads (or suitcase deads), pull ups for chins or barbell rows, etc. when you hit a sticking point, move on to another similar compound move. keep progressing. when that one hits a plateau, switch back to the original, and you will destroy your previous plateau.

    this workout combines a couple different theories - 5x5 and constant progression of weights, DC and dropping exercises that you aren't benefiting from, altering reps/weights to keep your body slightly confused, etc. i'm sure there are other theories being used in this workout as well. anyways, let me know if i answered your questions to your satisfaction.

    Well, I'm wondering if I'm going to be doing:

    squats
    bench
    deads
    military press
    clean and press
    pull ups or chins

    All in 1 day, 3 days a week? By the time you're doing 4x10 that seems like a lot of volume in one day.

    I've been doing the 5x5 for 10 weeks now and have 2 more to go. Then I'm changing it up, just looking for the next routine. I'm just used to benching 2x a week and then 1x the next week. But with 5x5 there is no question on how many reps for the weight. You just add and do 5x5. If I just add weight on this program, I won't make it to the 4x10.

    So that is where I'm confused as to where to progress on the weights. Or would the bench, military presses cycle go over the 2 weeks before adding weight? For example;

    Week A

    Mon
    squats (6 reps)
    bench (6 reps)
    cleans
    dips (6 reps)


    Wed
    squats (8 reps)
    military (6 reps)
    dead
    pull up (6 reps)

    Friday
    squat (10 reps)
    bench (8 reps)
    cleans
    dips (8 reps)

    Week B

    Mon
    squats (6 reps)
    military (8 reps)
    dead
    pull up (8 reps)

    Wed
    squats (8 reps)
    bench (10 reps)
    cleans
    dips (10 reps)

    Friday
    squats (10 reps)
    military (10 reps)
    dead
    pull up (10 reps)

    The next week add 5lbs and then start over. How about deads and cleans? Follow the same cycle?

    yeah, its a lot of volume. if you do them as supersets, its quicker. like 35 minutes. and its a blast!

    4x8 monday
    squats
    bench
    deads
    military press
    clean and press
    pull ups or chins

    4x10 wednesday
    squats
    bench
    deads
    military press
    clean and press
    pull ups or chins

    4x6 friday + 5 lb more
    squats
    bench
    deads
    military press
    clean and press
    pull ups or chins

    if you're ending a 5x5 cycle, try this for a month. trust me, you'll feel incredible.

    I have a couple questions about your workout sun.

    Are there warm up sets in the 4 or do you do warm ups before 4 sets of max?

    What is a superset?

    and what would you suggest for me since i have huge legs and tiny arms and can barely do 3 chinups and maybe 5 pulls? im like a t-rex, no way can i crank out a lot of body weight movements with my arms

    warmup is first, i just do a light one (1 set) to get the blood flowing, then do the workout.

    a superset is where you do two exercises back to back:

    squats
    bench
    30 second break
    squats
    bench
    30 second break
    squats
    bench
    30 second break
    squats
    bench
    1-2 minute break before next set of exercises.

    if you're at 3 chins and 5 pulls, do that for each set - do the 3 chins, then the 5 pulls, next exercise, etc.

    try to identify what the weak muscle is. if its your biceps, you might want to train them harder to get them up to speed. or you can just jump into this workout doing what you can, and you'll gradually build them up that way.

    the above workout is nasty, but it will put size on you quick.

    no problem brotha. can i ask a favor if possible :

    when you do this if you don't mind, run a log with before / after pics. resolve and i both gained 30+ pounds doing total body workouts (haven't seen his workout yet). it would be really cool to see progression / monthly pics to help point people in the right direction. its also a great motivational tool to help push yourself just a little bit harder.

    anyways, whatever you decide, this should really put some size on you - about 2 pounds per month, mostly lean, provided you have a surplus of calories.

    you can switch whenever you want, but i'd run 5x5 for another 2-4 weeks, so you can get the most out of it. its really up to you.

    as long as you want. i did mine for 6 months, switching out exercises i hit the wall at. when you hit the wall on the 2nd exercise, switch back to the first, and you'll drop some weights, but you'll break through your old plateau. you could do this longer if you wanted to, but in 6 months you'll get 90% of the gains you'll ever get from this workout. by the end of the first month though, you should already notice a huge increase in functional strength, as well as putting on some muscle.

    when i did this, my calorie intake was huge, i gained about 2 pounds per month. my workout partner was cutting (no supps), and lost 2 inches off his waist in one month, so plan your calories to fit your needs.

    again, with swimming, you'll probably notice that your caloric needs are 2-3 times what most people's is, and this is perfectly normal. the diet i posted for you is a guideline, but at some point, you may need to double that, with the amount of swimming you do.

    you'll notice that it forces you to push just a little harder, squeeze out that one extra rep. its a phenomenal motivational tool.

    if you feel the need to switch things up, you can rotate the order of this. i think that if you gave it a month, you'd never look back. its hard to loose motivation when you're making gains!

    ok i tried this workout and i noticed one thing RIGHT away, there is way to much tricep workout in this, press, clean and press, and bench is too much for such a regular basis. theres also a lack of back workout and bicep.
    I recommend throwing in 4 sets of rows for added upper back and bicep workout, and take out the solo presses and just have the clean and press to balance it out.

    The other thing i noticed right away is that this is oneBEAST of a workout, that i honestly dont have the stamina to do. What can i do to get more energy to last me through the workout?
