    What are your stats? I'm guessing you're a beginner. How much do you bench/squat/deadlift?

    That is a near-ridiculous amount of volume, especially if those sets are straight sets. There is also a serious lack of hamstring work.

    My opinion? Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. Read the stickies, and try out either HCT-12 or WBB TOR. Provided you eat and sleep enough, you'll gain muscle.

    I have been lifting for 2 years now, and have been on a different routine. I used to work each muscle group twice a week. I am 6'2'', and 250 lbs., my max on bench is 270lbs, and i dont know my deadlift or squat max as i dont try to my max on those. I workout at home and am limited to exercises.

    Do what you want, but I think you should re-evaluate your approach.

    Its an absolutely crappy magazine type bodybuilding routine. IF you make progress on this you either have great genetics or great drugs. Either way, you'd be better off following a better routine.

    You are leaving out a significant amount information. Namely the intensities (% of 1RM) of the lifts. That is actually the most important part of the program, as it's going to effect the volume and your body's response to it considerably.

    Also realize, most body builders are on AAS. Training using AAS is going to very different than someone with out it. Second, following someone else's program is not very effective. The program a body builder is using, is not the same program that was used to get him where he is today. Nor is it probably one that is optimal for you.

    Pretty much agree with this, I just try to put it a little more gently.

    Well there you go. It must be good if it was in a bodybuilding magazine. I'm not even sure why you asked our opinion because it's obviously a proven routine. Good luck with it and let us see some progress pictures in about a year.

    I could revise that routine and make it doable, but not sure you could. There are better ways.
