i am logging a routine over at ironaddicts titled WS4SB(hardgainer) and had a question about my next cycle. I like the fact i have a ME bench and RE bench day, and i am wanting to add a RE squat day also. to include the RE squat day i was thinking of doing ME squat on week 1 follwed by 2 wks of RE squat days and repeating thru cycle. keep a little pressure off my CNS i was thinking. sound good or no?

You could do that or you could just simply sub in an RE movement instead of that plyo day they have you do. If you aren't on the third version then I am assuming you only have 1 lower day a week. You could do what you described or you simply can add the second day like a full WSB split would have you do. It all depends on what you can handle without overreaching. Basically you will have to try it out and see how you respond to determine the answer to your question.

i think i will alternate ME and RE(repitition day) on the squats every week. thanks for the advice. progress is slow but its coming.

yes thats right. the repitition work for bench has really helped me gain strength and some good lines. my main goal is to continue to get healthier, eat right and get some good strength. my goals for mid next year is a 400lb squat/dead and a 350 bench.

i still find myself trying to do alot of different exercises. there is such a variety that i try to incorporate them all. just keep reminding myself about overtraining and simple is the way to go. will post my results of this cycle on dec. 29. and my new log will start jan. 7th.

If you properly rotate your ME lifts you should overtrain very rarely if at all. Most WSB guys never deload according to a few videos I have seen of Louie's seminars.

well i forgot to load up on carbs before hitting the gym but still manged a good workout. had a sample of vaso charge and wow. veins were everywhere and even got a pump in my calves(it was upper body workout today)

took a good look at my leg size today and relize i need to work them more. i have lost alot of excess fat on my legs but they just look flat. i will follow a more traditional WS routine:
monday: me bench
tuesday: me squat
thursday: re bench
friday: re squat
since losing some weight i need to put some more size on the wheels and 1 squat day/ wk isnt cutting it. think ill add in some leg ext as they have always done well with me.

why do you have two ME days back to back? It would make sense IMO, as well as fit in better with the original WS4SB routine, if you separated them as much as possible.
I rotated my days a little bit, as I hated doing ME lower body on friday per the routine.
monday: ME lower
tuesday: DE/rep upper
Thur: DE lower
Fri: ME upper
for lower body, I am currently concentrating on box squats and good mornings. I'm really working on getting my squat to respectable numbers, as it is by far my weakest lift right now.

since im really not up to my peak performance capacity im not worried about putting a ME Bench and ME Squat, back too back.
01-03-2008, 12:15 AM
its not prefered but for scheduling reasons i run my ME days back to back as well. off, ME bench, ME squat, off, DE Bench, DE squat.
It is challenging at first but i have found that it is workable.
