    New Workout Plan Help


    Hey so I'm trying to add lean muscle mass because I don't want to lose my current shape through bulking then cutting down. For a while I was varying between 10-12 reps per sets, lifting 5 days a week. Well I was thinking of doing a split like this:

    day 1: chest/tris (heavy weight 6-8 reps)
    day 2:legs (heavy weight 6-8 reps)
    day 3: back/sh/bis (heavy weight 6-8 reps)
    day 4: off
    day 5: chest/tris (light weight 12-15 reps)
    day 6: legs (light weight 12-15 reps)
    day 7: back/sh/bis (light weight 12-15 reps)
    day 8: off

    repeat

    I know this is different that typical routines but I want to try something new for lean mass. Has anyone tried something like this would it be worth a 8 week shot?

    IMO that seems like quite a bit of volume. Personally I find working chest/bi's, legs, back/tri's, shoulders to be the best for me wether I'm bulking or cutting. By doing it that way, you're hitting all muscle groups directly and indirectly on different days. 4 days per week. Just my 2 pennies
