So this is where all the mm.com people went to.
I need a little help. I've been training since August 2000 and made some good gains strength wise, and a little size wise. I've been following a Poliquin style routine, 2 on, 1 off, 1 on, 1 off, repeat, for about 2 1/2 months. I'm burnt out! I need a routine that gives more recovery time. I was reading about the full body rotuine that was just put up on this site and that looks cool, but how often can you do it? I was thinking like 1 on 2-3 off then repeat. The only problem is after I do squats, I'm dead tired, usually seeing technicolor flashes and what not.
I am also considering a 5X5 type routine where I do Mon/push, Wed/pull, Fri/leg, but I'm wondering if 5 reps is enough to really make a muscle grow. I'm looking for a good balance of size and strength. I have a power rack, so there are a lot of little tricks I can do to get stronger like heavy partial reps.
I would like to train about 3 times a week so I'm not sure if HIT is the way to go.
If anyone has any suggestions, articles, books to read, whatever, I'd really apriciate it. Today being Wednesday, I'll probably take the rest of the week off and eat, sleep, recover, and sart fresh on Monday. I'm 23 by the way. If you need more info let me know.
