    I've been on Pur's routine in the stickies for about 6 weeks now. Previous to this, I was doing a 3 day split 1 day off routine (Chest/Tri, Back/Bi, Legs/Shoulders, off). It seems that I have been losing muscle mass in the last 6 weeks. Has anyone ever experienced similar results? My workout with the 3 day split looked something like this...

    Day 1 Chest/Tri
    Flat DB
    Incline DB
    Fly
    Decline
    V Bar Pushdowns
    Rope Pushdowns
    Widegrip Reverse Push/Pulldowns

    Day 2 - Back/Bi
    Deadlifts
    Pull ups
    Cable Rows
    Standing DB Curls
    Preachers
    Seated hammers

    Day 3 - Legs/Shoulders
    Squats
    Leg Extentions
    Leg Curls
    DB Presses
    Front DB Raises
    Side DB Raises
    Reverse Flys

    Any input?

    :wtf:

    are you gaining or losing overall weight?

    if you're gaining, could just be the muscle seems to be "disappearing" because of increased BF

    in you're losing, EAT MORE!

    If you're trying you get bigger you can't make a significant increase to your training volume without also increasing your caloric intake. Also your 3 day routine sucks.

    :rofl:
    i've been following pur's routine, but by the mirror i just feel that my bodyfat has gone up, although, the bodyfat calculator on my scale has gone down... even though i know they aren't accurate, i think they can show change accurately.

    regardless....

    is a 3 day split routine better than a mon/tues/thur/fri routine?
