So, my goal is to gain size and strength. I started lifting about 10 months ago doing 10-8-6 (sometimes 10-8-6-4, or 18-8-4 if I think I can start going heavier). After doing it for 10 months I think it's time for a change. I've been reading up on the 5x5 and 5/3/1 routines, but would like to know what yall think would be best, and your experiences basically.
Diet is fine, and I am in the gym 5-6 days out of the week. Which makes the 5x5 kinda bleh for me because you up it weekly(from what I read). I have the time to hit it that much (college, job, and that's about all I do these days, till I move), and I'd feel like I was wasting time if I couldn't be actually making any progress while I DO have the free days.
I've tried to check out more routines, but once it gets ridiculously complex, I have a WTF moment and just decide I need something simpler, lol.
Cliffs: Doing 10-8-6 for 10 months, think I need a change in routine. What would be best for strength and size increase.
EDIT: Posted this at 3 AM, so I forgot some stuff, lol. Here is how my routine usually worked out:
1st day: Bis/tris
2nd day: Shoulders
3rd day: Back
4th day: Chest
5th day: Legs
Rinse repeat(sometimes I skip rest day, depending on if I feel I had a good week).
Weights have been going up (till I screwed up my wrist(s) and think it will be a few more days till I can do things like curls again. I can do chest day(most exercises), back day, and leg day even with the wrists funky. Can't do shoulders right now or bis/tris because of the grips. I don't know what I did to them, but I wasn't able to rotate my wrists at all at first, then it healed up. First it was with my left hand, now my right. It happened after my bi/tri day both times, and both times were days my weight went up. I don't plan on doing many BB curls after the right one heals though. Left one is back to normal.
