for you guys that are ripped.. how many times per week do you workout each muscle. ?
what you always done it this way.. or have you tried other ways too?
getting ripped comes down to your diet, no routine by itself will burn off fat for you, you need to get yourself a diet downpat. any routine will do, i personally like to hit each bodypart 2x a week, but hey thats just me, you have to see what works for you, a good starting point are the WBB routine's.
For every $1 you donate to the "buy Lude more weight plates foundation", you will help add 1kg to my 1RM.

haha. not many people want to claim they are jacked.
i'm not exactly ripped, and am bulking now, but my anecdotal experience confirmed my theoretical position (both for muscle gain and glucose disposal) that 3x was better than 1x.
haven't tried 2x or >3x for very long.

I guess I am somewhat "ripped", and currently due to my ****tay schedule, im only working a body part once a week. This will soon change once school is over and my work schedule is fixed so I can lift more.. then will probably do 2x a week.
I am asking because since I been in UD2 where I hit a muscle like 4 times a week... I think ... just think... that I can see better progress... I am not sure maybe is the combination of loosing fat and all ..... of course I don't think I will want to hit a muscle 4 times a week once I am done with UD2, but I am now cosidering a X2 a week workout....
I was doing MAXTO, before I went in UD2 ...
u mean MaxOT? how did u like it, did u go through the whole 12 weeks? i'm on week 2 right now
I am quite a begginer .. so I am like a blind walking around ... I started with MAXOT but 3 week later I found out that I would be better adviced on getting my BF% lower first ... so I went looking for a program to do that and i end up with UD2.
I think the workout is good, and a good number of people recomended, I really did not have enought time to evaluated but I would stay on it, if were not because of UD2.
I am also now looking at working the muscles at least 2 times a week, so that maybe something I will have to research and decide once I am done with UD2

The number of times you work out a week has little to do with how ripped you are.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
Did you do the Max-OT Cardio with the resistance work as the program suggests? I've been using Max-OT for over 2 years and find it to be one of the best training regimes since everything makes sense.Originally Posted by wleon

when you say that it is "one of the best training regimes" are you refering to the lifting program or the cardio program ?
The cardio is part of the complete routine. If you start picking and choosing what you want to do, the routine won't work. In other words, the Max-OT cardio is intended to build up endurance and cut body fat without cutting muscle (it is essentially HIIT).

Some people such as myself just love to lift so heres what i do.
Day one: Arms, legs
Day two: Nothing
Day three: Stomach Chest
Day four nothing
Day five: Arms, Stomach
Day six: Chest
Everything there is being done twice, and you workout more often
however this is still flawed but it will still allow for muscle growth.
PS: Do you take supplements? Whey? Creatine? sometimes this can
really pack on the muscle. in the case of creatine, it WILL pack on
Forgot to say that you need to add legs to day three or five, optional sorry.
