    programs that work for you?


    I'm interested in what programs worked for you to gain size,strength, and helped cut your body, I've been lifting for 2 years , and have always followed my own programs and they worked very well, but i want to try out some routines out there and see how they work, i have always used split-routines usually 4-6 days on 1-3 off,

    thanks

    I tried doggcrap once and stopped within the week, hated it

    UD2.0 surely works for getting to 8% or lower bodyfat however

    I hear that from time to time.. It seems like the people who tried it for less then a month, and quit, usually are not even doing it right anyway, or don't have the intensity it takes to progress with DC.

    I have felt different principles work better for different things and different lifts. I have also found that certain things work better to a certain point. I did one thing to get to a 500lb deadlift, and another to get to 600, now i am working on trying to get to 700 and i am not sure what is going to get me their.

    Just not for me, I've been injured before and I just feel like that type of routine makes me more prone to re-injuring myself

    I understand. If injury is a big factor, then increasing your RP range does wonders. I understand the worry of injury with working in the lower rep RP ranges(11-15) but that is not written in stone..

    I personally, especially when dieting, increase my rep ranges into the 20-25RP range on some exercises as to stave off injury.

    Agreed, 8-12 reps are my favorite rep range with heavy weight. Nothing killer though, the last thing I want to do is have my arm in a sling for 6 months again.

    I prefer 15-20 while dieting myself

    i am currently using a Westside Template and i love it. Some others on the board also swear by it. I am going to add some repetition method work into the normal Max Effort/Dynamic Effort work. It is all based off of proven numbers. Buy a log book, a small calculator and some jump-stretch bands, maybe some chucks and some nose torque and your ready!

    Do yourself a favor and read everything posted in this thread...

    Im gonna be honest here.

    The past 3 months Ive made some incredible gains and its due to stepping up my volume (more days per week, hitting muscles more times.)

    Perhaps my intensity wasn't up to par before, but thats what boosted my gains.

    Work harder and youll achieve more

    Great addition to this topic. Intensity is something that a lot of people take for granted. "How bad do you want it?"...
