    if you are not sure how to design a program then get on a proven one and enjoy the results. and im not talking about a program from some IFBB pro either.

    there are several good ones in there.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Try this..

    You need a partner though. This is what I used right after my surgery to get back the mass I lost.

    try something like upperbody push, upper body pull, legs for your 3 day routine. also look at 5x5 sets. 3 of 8-12 has always seemed crappy for gaining. i cant remember the exact split i followed in high school that laid 35lbs on me between football seasons but it was something like

    monday- legs
    squat 5x5
    stiff leg dl 5x5
    (that about all i remember from legs since i dreaded working them)

    wed- push

    flat barbell bench 5x5
    inclines 5x5
    shoulder press 5x5
    push press 5x5
    skull crushers or dips to isolate tri's

    friday-pull
    deads.. guess sets and reps
    cleans (hang or power)
    bent over rows
    lat pull downs

    thats the basic ideas behind it, it worked fantastic for gaining mass. now that i've got a bit more free time and dont want to put on tons of mass, just lean out a bit and continue to add quality i've began to isolate 1-2 parts a day but all of the compound movements have stuck weather i do them high rep to burn cals or low rep to build.

    do what works for you. i've found the best gains for my shoulders and arms come on mixed days where my shoulders bi's or tri's are pre exhausted from supporting other compound movements. on a 3 day split its silly to give shoulders and arms their own days. maybe put all 3 into one day and make sure your hitting back and legs hard. you're not going to gain 20lbs of bulk on your arms or shoulders. theyre tiny muscle groups compared to your back and legs. thats my .02 on gaining.

    edit: in other words, nothings wrong with it if it does the job. just offering mere suggestions to assist in the process.

    Agree, 5/3/1 is a great routine. Google it and you will see it has a lot of good reviews on it.

    Check out the link I posted earlier, program seems like a basic mesocycle for Wendlers 5/3/1 and it would be better to have some periodization and calculations for the 1RM so as to add a bit of methodical thinking and goals to progress. If you want to work out 3 days , the main program works wonders , and if you are a bit hastier theres a 4 days per week mesocycle which can be used , but keep in mind the compound main lefts get their own days. I.E.:

    Monday: Squat + Assistance work

    Wednesday: Bench Press + Assistance work

    Friday: Dead-lift + Assistance Work

    Saturday: OH Press + Assitance work.

    So you cycle it only in 4 weeks , 3 weeks progressive , 1 week deload.

    If you are patient enough to take 6 weeks of it:

    Monday: Squat + assistant

    Wednesday: Bench + Assistance

    Friday: Deadlift + Assistance

    Monday:OH press + assistance.

    And keep cycling them from then on , remember it comes in waves , so the first week + 1 day is 3 sets for 5 reps , the next wave is 3x3 , and then 5/3/1 , then the deload and start over ! Hope it helps!!

    PS: I would recomend the standard Wendler 5/3/1 , because you have 3 workouts a week and 4 days of rest to be used for cardio (if a recomp is desired, or lean bulk) or for pure rest if you only care about bulking and dont stress over fat !!.

    sounds like a pretty interesting program. cant help but wonder if thats what my high school trainer built ours off of. i guess its time to take a look at that.

    Glad to be of help ! I have been liking it A LOT , I am a really tiny dude as you can see in my stats hehe...I was pretty fat before and my main concern was fatloss , so I took care of it by cutting 50+lbs in 7-8 months , Frank Reynolds was the person who got me interested in this program and I am positively loving it. My lifts feel so good training in the morning like this and well, what can I say , even if its not much assistance work, proper form and Making Every Rep Count sure makes you sore when you go out!! Haha.

    For great mass gains , try something simple like "Boring but Big" Template or even "Body Weight" templates for assistance works! In the end of the article it gives a full list of assistance workouts for each main lift!

    Glad to help ^^ , main goal of it is for building strength and mass I would say, since its progressing through weight cycles you will need the calories, but a recomp is doable in a sense of doing cardio the other 3/4 days of rest , works specially well with Intermittent Fasting (for the recomp porpoise I mean) since its a leaner approach to diminishing calories in rest days , and give the availability of fasted cardio. With the right supplements (Yohimbe (or Alpha-Y) HCL) it would work wonders at keeping a bulk lean with the cardio while still mantaining a surplus on workout days!!. Hope it helped out guys!
