I've been trying WBB#1 for about a month now. My arm gains are flying. My legs are increasing gradually. But my chest and back are stuck. (Except for deadlifts). Now they can't have plateued because, as I said, my deads are still increasing. My dad says it's because I'm training tris and shoulders too close to chest, bis too close to back, and the deadlifts are interfering with legs. It makes enough sense.
Then he suggested a routine. Last time I took his routine I overtrained for a solid year, since every time I asked why I wasn't gaining he said "you've just gotta work harder!"
Anyway, the theoretical split was chest/shoulders/tris on one day, back/bis/legs on another. This doesn't bother me so much as he thinks I should go twelve sets per body part. Like I said, the low-volume WBB#1 was working for me, but I don't have enough recuperation time with it.
So I'm not sure yet. Does 36 sets per day sound pretty normal, or should I drop the volume (and if so, how much)?
Edit: I can only get down to the gym three days a week.
