    So in attempt to gain some mass, I switched from high volume and intensity workouts using 4-5 sets of 6-15 reps pyramid style like 10,8,6,15 for example. I am currently on my third week of doing x rep style workouts where most lifts have only 2 work sets of 7-9 reps +x rep partials...some lifts (usually first exercise of muscle group) gets two warmup sets+2 work sets. Drop sets are utilized as well

    My confusion lies within the fact that I have been doing less cardio, eating more carbs, and lifting heavier for lower reps, yet I have gotten smaller everywhere... I'm using most of the same lifts, just different sets/reps. I really thought tbis program would put on somesize... But I hAve shrank. Any ideas? Aside from "eat more" bcmu diet is fine... I really feel the workouts aren't challenging enough even though they are by very reputable people n backed by research. I am getting stronger, but not bigger... Primarily I noticed shoulders and traps substantially smaller, back is ok'ish, chest ok, arms not doing well. Legs ok

    They are reputable because they are by Ironman Magazine that is all. Ironman found a way to sell more than just supplements. They decided to come up with their own workout programs and market the heck out of it in their magazine.

    It's about muscle fibers. The more weight, the more fibers engage. The lower weights/higher reps 'pick' on only a few fibers. Therefore more damage is done = more growth. That's put real simply.
    I'm no expert though.

    Yea I wanted to lower my intensity n frequency bc I was so burnt out though. And once it comes time to cut, I'd have no room to increase intensity from where I was..

    I never really had a huge focus on lifting heavy, heavy.

    I would go in and do my 8-10 reps, 3-4 sets...
    Then I was hearing people say light weight high reps. Can't say that's legit either just yet.

    I think heavy weights should build mass once I do that and have a good amount of mass you can dip to lights weights.

    Either way every1 is different just has to stress the muscle.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Yea.. The best results I ever had came from 20,20,6,6 rep scheme.. 20s opened up the muscle n let the blood in, 6 builds it n gets strength up, super pumped after a workout of those. 10,8,6,15 or 15,10,8,6 is great too. I just got burnt out doing 2 hour lifts four days a week for 2-3 Years.

    How about you keep the workout you have now and change the body part/day? For instance, on chest day do triceps...

    Bc it's called direct/indirect. Meaning when u hit chest, you indirectly hit tris, and when u hit tris (cg benches) you indirectly hit chest, thus hitting each muscle twice per week.. Thsts how they Layed it out.. I think it just comes down to that I'm not stimulating the muscles enough.. Need some higher reps to expand n tear the fibers..

    Higher reps should do it, but remember when u go heavy you get stronger and when u get stronger you can move more weight, and the once heavy weight is not lighter weight, that's why it kinda makes sense to build strength first.
    Trust me if I can move heavy weight u won't look small.

    Direct/indirect...learn something everyday.
    I lift heavy. So when I cut (the high rep stuff sucks) I go from push/pull-split-type-workouts to super sets, d/i.

    U guys every try a full body 3 times a week with about 3 sets and 3 exercises on bigger muscles and 2-3 on smaller groups?

    I hear it's great for novice people and people even at an intermediate level.
    Throw in some traps and AB crunches as well. Get it all done in under 1 hour & that's including 20 minute of cardio & let's say 5 minutes on a bike to warm up.
    When I tried it b4 I couldn't stick to it, buy I think that's because I was trying to do more reps/sets than what the program allowed for. I've started it again today. Should help build muscle and cardio/fast pace (hour for everything) should help ya cut fat as well.

    Yes. I had great results supersetting full body workouts. I was doing very high volume. 2-3 lifts for shoulders, chest back @4 sets each. And 2 lifts for bis tris at 2 sets each... I got bigger and
    More defined. Again, burnout factor was rough...

    I do something like that, circuit work with plyometrics, bags, and isometrics. Never tried it with my lifts.
    I think I'd be sore too much if I did that. I'll give it a shot next cut--**** being productive at work! Lol

    Glad to hear that worked. U was doing that all in 1 session correct?
    I posted the routine above, seems it's bit different from what you were doing (4 chest exercises: how many sets?), maybe high volume was the problem should've went more on the heavy side....

    O wow that's super basic. I feel like that would do nothing for me...

    Wide lat pd and incline db press
    Arnold press and v lat pd
    Bb row and db laterals
    Incline flys and underhand pullups
    Rear dealt flyes and pullovers
    Zottman curls and straight bar tri pd
    Single c able curl and single overhead db ext

    Those are super sets blank and blank. Each super set is 4 sets.
    That is one day, plus abs. Leg works is included on other days, plus different exercises for each muscle. Plus cardio ... It's a lot but it's the only way o feel like I've done anything :/

    Zottman curls and straight bar tri pd
    Single c able curl and single overhead db ext

    Those are super sets blank and blank. Each super set is 4 sets.
    That is one day, plus abs. Leg works is included on other days, plus different exercises for each muscle. Plus cardio ... It's a lot but it's the only way o feel like I've done anything :/
    It is but u tweak with ya own sets & reps

    Super basic is where its at man!! The routine JP posted up you could add in some extras if you compete to get that stage package ect.
    If you enjoy mixing rep ranges and stuff like that P/RR/S program is great i reckon. Pretty much Micro periodization. Ive currently been running dorian yates blood n guts 6 week trainer program and man am i sore, thats another solid option to look into!

    I think if you run that routine and go heavy and keep moving you should be able to ellict some gains what cha think newton?

    Is there any tweaks you put on that routine Newton? More sets/reps anywhere?

    depends on cheds current time lifting plus his end goals. I normally only really advocate the good ol FB routines to people who seem to be pure rank beginers which you can normally pick up just by the post they make. Then you give them the easy answer of follow SS/5X5/TBT ect ect ect The type of people that have never really been all that athletic, and maybe sit around playing xbox or ps all there lives. Basically you just want them to get familiar with the bar the gym and the movements that need to be executed.

    But theres a lot of begginers out there that have a general idea of the gym that are pretty athletic and naturally fit and strong that would be more then ready for doing a split or sorts. I really think the whole do a FB routine for 6 months get your strength up ect has all blown out of proportion. You get a lot of bb forum newbies that get given advice by other FB routine pushers, then they think theve grasped the concept and push it themselves and on it goes.

    (Sorry going off on a lil tangent here, venting hahaha)

    The program i do and have pretty much always done which ive built a lot of my size on and am currently back on after tryin DY's program, is a basic 5 day split, 1 muscle group a day, 2on 1off 3 on 1off, instinctive style, ramping most weights to a top set of 3-6reps, staying on that weight until i can get 10-12reps then increasing weight back down to the 3-6rep range, 2-4 exercise per muscle group.... thats worked for a long time for me and continues too and for a lot of big guys i know in the industry that compete ect. At the end of the day a lot of biggest guys a pretty much training this way and are all doing the same thing.

    moral of the story there is none kinda just rambling bull**** lmao

    I had the same experience. Loved it as a cutting routine, and I also used to throw this in mid-way through bulking when gains start to stall out. Definitely works but easy to overtrain, gotta be careful.

    Do you have access to a prowler? It's a great way to add in extra volume while assisting recovery. Great tool to use on off days or to finish a workout.
