    just pick something and do it.

    seriously, until you are an advanced lifter, the specifics of your routine is of minimal importance. the effort you put into doing it is WAY WAY more important. obsess over that part of the equation instead

    a hypertrophic routine wouldn't work too well on a cutting diet now, would it?
    when cutting, i assume you'd want a low rep/high intensity routine ie. strength oriented routine.

    i'm on german volume training, advocated by charles poliquin, for hypertrophy. and i've found that the high reps (2 exercises, 10 sets of 10) are causing me to lose bodyfat and gain lbm at the same time. and i'm eatting quite a bit and still losing fat/gaining weight.

    Do 4 sets of 8, 5-6 excersises a day, 5 times a week.
    Go to this website http://www.exrx.net/Lists/WtMale.html
    and do the excersises that are bold.

    Routines work themselves out. See how long it takes your body to heal and take it from there.


    For me, pushing/pulling/legs 2 times a week has showed considerable gains.

    hypertrophy is the increase in size of a muscle. hypertrophic is the adjective form
