    I think that unless you have 24hrs/7days a week to dedicate to eating and training and sleeping, then your going to fail ...

    I know that the pro's live, eat, and sleep, bodybuilding when going into contest prep. The average joe who is getting into bodybuilding is not going to have the amount of time to dedicate it to the gym, meals, and sleep ...

    Some might argue that all these guys were average joe's when they started, well, that's not true because if all average joes could do this then there would be hundreds of thousands of professional bodybuilders.

    Your going to have to put yourself on a PERFECT schedule and remove yourself from reality for a while...remember Arnold skipping his dad's funeral? You got balls like that?

  7. IM not saying that you can NOT do it, but my question is what's your reason?

    well I have alot of free time, Im in college and most of my time goes to studying then lifting, so when Im not in class or the library, Im in the gym. The only area where I need major improvement, and this bothers me, is sleep. The stress is disrupting my sleeping, Im thinking about taking melatonin to see if it helps

  9. If your not getting sleep, then you losing more than half the battle with that much volume. just saying...
    ---The internet is the father of the electronic lynch-mob---

  10. That is too much volume unless you're on IMO, I had a similar routine to that when I was on test/anadrol, and was still on the verge of over training. If you cut out a bit, it would be a great routine.

  11. Im thinking about doin Mdrol in feb or march, what about then??

  12. Thats still quite a bit of volume, even with a superdrol clone. Professional bodybuilders on usually on much more than just one oral.

    DAY 1
    Quadriceps Leg extensions 5 8-10
    Squats 5 6-8
    Hamstrinqs Leg curls 5 6-8
    Stiff-leg deadlifts 5 6-8
    DAY 2
    Back Chinups 5 6-8
    Barbell rows 5 6-8
    Seated cable rows 5 6-8
    Pulldowns 5 6-8
    DAY 3
    Shoulders Military presses 5 6-8
    Dumbbell side laterals 5 6-8
    Bent rear laterals 5 6-8
    Biceps Barbell curls 5 6-8
    Dumbbell curls 5 6-8
    Preacher curls 5 6-8
    DAY 4
    Chest Bench presses 5 6-8
    Incline dumbbell presses 5 6-8
    Dumbbell flyes 5 6-8
    Triceps Pushdowns 5 6-8
    Dumbbell extensions 5 6-8

    Something like this

  13. i dont get whats so intense about this? i do more than this every time i lift, 5-6 days a week. i dont always go up to 5 sets, sometimes just 4 but i add about 2-3 more exercises than this routine except maybe arms. in all honesty i dont see whats wrong with this.

    How many pounds have you gained since you began workout like that?

  15. You doing 40 sets on some of the days without warm-up or calves so that is way too much for the average person. As others have mentioned 99.9% of people would easily over-train on that schedule unless they were on steroids/PHs.

    If you're looking for something new why not try a 5x5 routine? A lot of people who thought this was just for powerlifters have made good gains of it and it is very intense.

  16. 5x5 has never worked for me, Im more of a pyramid guy...Im a strong believer in overloading the muscle

  17. If it works for you and you able to make gains then good luck but for me this would definietly be over-training.

    I'm looking for a good routine to do WHEN and IF I do Mdrol

  19. It will still be over training on Mdrol.

    um about 10-15 in the last couple months. i stopped trying to gain weight now cuz im preparing to cut again, but i still increase strength regularly. granted ive been training with alot of intensity for a while, but still, my body doesnt even seem to be responding as well to it. i add supersets and drop sets when necessary too. i think it all depends man

    YOu're saying that you do this exact same routine for weeks on end? And, you're constantly gaining 10-15lbs? .... Either you're skidding me a couple or someone has got me twisted up?

    hahah no dude definately not. i dont even do this exact routine, just a routine of equal or similar intensity. and i went up 10-15 lbs in the past couple months since my cut. im not willing to keep bulking cu z i started gaining fat again. my only point in saying that was i dont think the intensity of a workout constitutes someones overtraining in itself. i sleep about 9 hours a day and eat about 3600 calories, but yes my workouts are extremely intense, and i am still increasing weights. i can post my last couple workouts if ur interested, but i do change it up very frequently. its never really the same considering all the options i have now of combining sets, order, and supersetting some lifts.

  24. If your intensity was as high as it should be, it would be over training. No question. Your gains are probably newbie gains and you probably aren't working out as hard as you think you are.

    Just seemed pretty phenomenal given your age range...dunno. Have you been coming back from a layoff?

    Yeah, not saying that it's impossible (i've done the leg routine myself) but for months on end? nah! And I sure as heck didn't get in and out of the gym in 55mins...

    After about 3 months, my gains came to a dead STOP, period! No movement in anyway, felt sick all day, and had enormous headaches daily,...this is the reason why i missed 30+ days from the gym a few months ago...lol
