Need a new workout routine

  1. Need a new workout routine


    Hey guys i have been lifting for the last 4 years and other than mixing exercise types every month or so, i havent changed my routine. I do chest/tri 4x8-12
    Back/Bi 4x8-12
    Shoulders4x8-12
    Legs 4x8-12

    I have heard mixed reviews on the 5x5 workout and was wondering what peoples thoughts were for a new routine. More concerned with gaining mass than looking cut right now. All help is appreciated.

    Here is my recommendation:
    Monday: Chest
    Tuesday: Upper Back
    Wed: Biceps
    Thursday: Shoulders / Triceps
    Friday: Legs
    Saturday: Deadlifts

    or a more condensed version:
    Monday: Chest + Biceps
    Tuesday: Back
    Wed: Rest
    Thursday: shoulder / triceps
    Friday: Legs

    This is very similar to what Dorian Yates did.

  3. If you are looking for hypertrophy (gaining mass) I would suggest more TUT ( time under tension ) look up some DC training.


    Dorian Yates also did a **** ton of drugs ... just sayin

  4. Would doing the second option work well on a 5x5 workout?

  5. DC training would be a good option, but right now i dont have a spotting partner so i cant max out on anything
