    Dude you've made like 123908473 threads on routines. Just pick something and stick with it, then switch every 8 weeks. Which routine you use doesn't make a big difference, it's all about how much effort you put into it.

    I'd do the one where it requires you to jump into a hole that you cannot climb out of. The hole also must be at least 5 miles away from any humans so that nobody will be able to hear your screams

    How many times do I HAVE TO SAY IT: I WORK OUT 5 days per week lifting heavy weights - making PR's every week. I have switched my routine once in the last year. I have an interest in researching and creating good routines; it's a hobby. I am hoping to find the one that works best for me (didn't like christophers' much), but until I find the one that I think is best, I'll keep doing what I'm doing. This is a discussion forum - just because you aren't interested in the discussion doesn't mean that others aren't - shut the fuck up if you don't want to contribute.

    Here is a thread YOU made asking about routines: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=2413976

    Finally, who are you to talk shit? This is a picture of SquallRM. :mamoru: http://server4.ihostphotos.com/show.php?id=41

    If you make PR's every week then why the hell would you want to switch?

    It seems more like you have an interest in researching and then creating shitty routines.

    I'm on a powerlifting routine and my goals have changed, more interested in hypertrophy than strength now, and I know they're inseperable, but there are routines that can build size more efficiently than christophers'. Maybe my routines are crappy, but you don't learn anything overnight, thats why I need constant feedback so I can improve.

    Too late, its chrisophers' routine. No one would have a clue if I called it the Bill Starr program, and so it perpetuates. :bigthumb:

    It's easier to refer to it as christopher's routine. Bill starr has many routines, and saying Christopher's routine refers to that one in particular in the archives.
    Everyone know's it's not yours, it's just for convenience.

    Flat out, I have different goals than you. I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to powerlifting because I don't care about powerlifting, or strong man or any of that shit. I work with a real strength coach (i.e not an internet forum member) and he said that that routine was good, and certainly and great for building strength, but way off the mark for my goals (size, symmetry, low BF%). I was on it for almost a year, and I have disproportinately weak/ small shoulders and arms.

    Md, not an idiot. Of course diet is #1 but a routine with more compound exercises, volume and frequency is going to be easier to maintain a low bf% on (I don't do any cardio)

    EDIT: I think a better way to describe it is as 'icing on the cake' or every little bit helps, a 5 days/week w/ more volume is going to be better for my goals than 3/ week, low volume with everything else constant.

    Md's don't make great coaches, they make great doctors.

    As for the weak arms and shoulders....dude, you're just weak, its not just your arms and shoulders.
