Rep scheme, sets, muscle worked (times a week), etc.
i'd expect some kind of mix between a strenth routine and a hypertrophy routine, i wouldn't doubt that some change out each week, one strength next bb'ing, repeat
I'm hoping for scooby/mass/pur/danny to chime in
German volume training, or something similar.
Pretty much the same as always but than again I'm technically always On
Monday - Chest
Tuesday - Back
Wednesday - Shoulders
Thursday - Triceps/Biceps/Forearm (doesn't sound like a good combo but its works for me...so fuck it)
Friday - Legs
Rep/set scheme range from 3x8 to 4x8 on different exercises depending on if its compound or isolation exercise.Every now and than I'll do some crazy volume shit just to switch things up.I've used the 10x10 principal of GvT at times as some volume shit to do.I don't like GvT too much it bores me out but its a good routine.Though to be honest the rep/set scheme will vary depending how I feel like if I do 4x8 on mil presses and feel I can push more I'll up the weight and go for another set.
pur has always been one to say train the same on as you would off
I would think so too
So working the each muscle 2x a week would still be overkill and non-beneficial?
Well you are bound to work muscles indirectly but I wouldn't do the same workouts for each bodypart twice a week.
ME pec tears
ME hamstring tears
I usually changed it up but it usually is very heavy and lots of sets.
Wonder how the Arnold routine would work if you were on a ton of juice.
A bunch of the westside guys actually stay on all year long from what I've read
Buy the book
you don't wanna push the weight to far out of your normal range. then you're just begging for problems.
connective tissue and joints can't keep up with the muscle growth.
I remember Louie had some famous quote about test.
I don't have it but I've seen it at a friends house.I guess you could juice and try one of his advanced routines in the book.I don't remember the specifics tho.
Something about how there is a bench shirt with a vial of test in the corner over there and it has yet to bench anything?
Yeah thats the one I was thinking about.I need to find the exact quote its pretty good plus the man has been using for the past 28 years so he knows what he says.
I'm not saying that everyone there does. I've just read interviews where people have stated that a lot of guys stay on all year round. I don't know how they would modify training.
I imagine they stay on all year round moreso to stay injury free than anything else.
"Everyone I know stays on year round. People say we're nuts but they don't train like we do. They want to scream and shout about staying on year round. But if you're taking one cc of test all that's doing is keeping yourself somewhat healthy. I've seen too many guys come off and get hurt. People say "well why don't you tone down your training?" Well guess what, we can't. If you want to be the best at something you're gonna have to make some sacrifices."
I actually read something with the quote in it the other day, but I have no recollection as to where. Louie has got some good shit. I've got all his articles from the Westside website in a bound book type thing. Makes for good bathroom reading material
