    Im trying to switch up my routine, cause right now im doing the every other day routine to gain mass. Im 6'2" and weigh about 172 lbs and have gotten alot bigger than i was 1 year ago. However, i was wondering what the one body part per day rountine does? Would this not be good if im trying to still gain mass,because im not letting my muscles recover enough? I would like to get around 190-200 for myself to feel great. My current calorie intake per day is about 2700 calories and my body burns 1847 calories per day.

    no no, that would be way to much time in the gym. SAy monday all you do is arms, tues back, wed shoulders,legs thurs etc. Just hit one body part per day until failure. My current routine is 2 body parts say chest and back for example on monday, then on wed i do another 2 body parts. I end up hitting the gym about 3-4 days per week.

    I am getting bigger, but i wanted to change to the one body part per day routine,but im not sure of what this routine is geared for? Toning up, gaining mass etc?
