PROFILE, COMMENT PLZ
yeah, i need to get around to that, but do you think so far
Looks like you took WBB#1 and doubled the number of sets. Why?
Holy cow that's a lot of bicep work.
Just stick to the regular WBB #1 routine.

If you want to grow, you need to eat more. All the training in the world won't add a single pound if you don't eat. As for the routine, I think it's way too much volume.
what do you mean there is too much volume? Is it my # of sets or my # of reps? I will post my diet later but I do eat 5-6 meals a day with 25-30 grams of protein. Also I eat a lot of carbs too. My weight is around 158 pounds at 6'2 and I am looking to gain mass. Also what is the WBB # 1 routine?
Volume is a combination of sets and reps. You could reduce that to 9-12 sets per day and achieve the same results, if not better.
How much weight have you gained while using your current diet?
about 3-5 pounds with my current diet, but im starting this week my high calorie bulking diet and creatine next week to add even more mass. Is the creatine monodrate by twinlab a good brand to use? I am thinking about getting that one!!
i changed to routine if you guys can crtique it that would be great!!

Whoa- I agree with the posts, reduce the volume, especially considering you are 6'2 and 158 pounds.
I would do what Iron Game writer Sean Toohey wrote about-- pick a 'cornerstone' exercise and base your whole routine around it. A cornerstone exercise would be squats or deadlifts or some variation of those two. Then throw in some pressing exercises and some pulling exercises. As long as your 'cornerstone' exercise gets consistently heavier, you will pack on the pounds. No need for isolation at your stage.
You may want to replace one of your leg exercises with squats. Also, this split does not work the hams very well. Also, you may want to consider deadlifting every other week and replacing the cable row on non-deadlifting days with db or bb rows.
Just one guy's opinion.
