Yeah man I've been in and out of strength training for a couple years and once my sprained wrist heals up (resulted from hitting a heavy bag without gloves or wraps ha!) I'm heading into a new routine. I'm gonna be doing a HIT program. Really cool routine that requires three days of lifting per week (mon, wed, fri) and involves a couple warm-up sets per body part and then doing just ONE working set to 100% physical failure by about the 6-7th rep. The rationale of training only mon, wed, fri stems from the idea that the nervous system takes about 24 hours to recover after such high intensity workouts and only after that point do the muscles begin to recover/grow/adapt. This is to hopefully promote maximum growth and strength. Its a new thing that I've read alot about and it sounds like a good (though tough) change for myself. Not doing it on any gear... Just using Kre-Alkalyn, Glutamine, Animal Paks, Protein Isolates and Casseine, Fish and Flaxseed Oil. Should be starting this routine in a couple weeks. I'm going to be lifting 3 weeks and then take one week off completely. Then pick back up. Gonna repeat that process about 3-5 times and hopefully put on at least 10-15 pounds of muscle (and some fat naturally) and then head into about a 4-6 week cutting program... Looking forward to it!
Best wishes in all your efforts!
