    Did wbb1 and 2, time to move onto wbb 3?

    I used the first wbb routine for a about 5 months and then switched to wbb2 once I started to stall. Now that I am stalling with wbb2 (been on it for about 4 months), and I wonder if I should move onto wbb3. Any other routines for my current situation (elaborated on below) would be extremely welcome.

    Most likely I have spent too much time on each routine, but I followed the advice to stick with it till it didn't work anymore.

    Currently, I am looking to increase my mass. My body fat is ok (around 10-12%), weighing in at 173lbs @ 6'2". Also, my nutrition is well balanced.
    I've tried mixing up wbb2 on my own by going into different rep ranges...incorporating the rep scheme found in wbb3, and using different lifts at times, but I feel like I'm doing a bastard job of it, and prolly just butchering the routiene.

    Thanks for your time and input!

    Edited: My school schedule is setup so that I can hit the gym on T-Th-F-Sat-Sun, so maybe experimenting with a 4 day split could be in order?

    Well Maki did the wbb2.

    How about you explain in what parts you wewre stalling in, because I bet Maki would have a few less butchering solutions for you

    To be specific, near the end I was stalling on all the chest, biceps, and shoulder lifts.

    Well for one thing the routines are designed to be followed in order. If you were switching the exercises around, you weren't getting the maximum out of the workout.

    I didn't switch the lifts around (lift type and rep scheme included)till is was extremely evident that I was stalling (weight/progression wise) on my lifts. Basically, I'm at a point where I'm asking 'what do I do know that I've stopped progressing?'
    Obvious answer would be that I should try a new routiene, but I really do not know what would be an appropriate routiene to try.

    thanks for the advice maki

    what type of tempo should be used for the first week (rep range 6 and 10), and also what type of tempo should be used for the second week (rep range 8 and 12)?

    for the sets where i shouldnt go to failure, how should i gauge how much to lift?

    also, what type of abdominal work should i do for wbb3?

    *** Just stick with a 2,1,2 tempo. Nothing spectacular.

    for the sets where i shouldnt go to failure, how should i gauge how much to lift?

    *** As much as you can but going one rep shy offailure. It maytake a couple sessions for you to find out what weight alows you to do this.

    also, what type of abdominal work should i do for wbb3?


    *** Try weighted crunches and hanging leg raises
