Mass Machine (Skip Lacour)

  1. Mass Machine (Skip Lacour)


    I've appreciated the discussion in my GVT thread and hope for some insight here, too.

    I traditionally lift heavy and favor frequency over volume, GVT was a brief change up for me.

    I've read through this routine and it looks awesome. As I understand it, you follow each mini routine in succession and the whole plan takes something like 2 years to complete.

    This is quite a commitment so I'm hoping to hear personal stories from anyone, especially if you've seen the whole thing through.

    Links later, not convenient on device.

  2. Nobody? Maybe I'll log this one.

  3. Can't really comment on something that I don't know about, or have nothing to evaluate.

  4. Post the routine?

  5. Yeah, sorry guys. I forgot I hadn't linked it. It takes 104 weeks total and is made up of mini routines. It seems to combine traditional BB style volume but with heavy weight vs. moderate or heavy/low volume/high frequency.

  6. These look like Heavy Duty/Blood&Guts(Yates)routines. 1or2sets of 4-6 reps. Theoretically these will work to build strength/ size and maybe he has mapped out a plan to last that long without OT or Plateauing? I don't know anyone who has tried it!!!

  7. You will stagnate and/or accomodate very quickly doing the same exact routine for 6-8 weeks. 3-4 weeks appears to be the optimal time period for adaptation. There is also very little variation or progression in volume and intensity...its all 3-4 sets of 4-6 reps. Neglecting the higher rep ranges is a mistake if your goal is hypertrophy.

  8. Thanks guys, as a note, the first and last weeks of each mini routine call for 6-8 reps as opposed to 4-6 if that changes any analyses.
