My current routine is Max OT. I'm looking for a new one since my current routine hasnt yeilding any significent gains in the last 8 weeks (not any wbb routines, sorry) but one that focuses on more reps (6-8 vs 4-6) so my cns doesnt get burnt, and one that's some sort of 2x each body part a week workout as i've never tried one of these. Something between 4-5 days a week at the gym.
Any reccomendations would be appreciated.

I got no clue man... I've been doing 5 days a week for 4 months now with no gains so I am finally gonna give in and go only 3-4 days per week..... who knew less is more???Originally Posted by Antonious
Yeah i use to lift 6 days a week. Chest/back on Mon/Thursday, Tris/bis on tuesday/Friday, Shoulders/legs on Wed/Sat. i saw no gains worth talking about. I switched to one muscle per day 6 days a week, i gained 5lbs in 1 month. I then switched to a full body 3 days a week and it seems to be working. Try routines out and see what works for you.
Yeah who knew less is more, maybe its just me.
Forgot to explain that some of my other lifts besides benchpress seem to be increasing, but bench and a few others are just stuck. My goal is muscle mass, but i've heard several things suggesting if your not lifting more you probably arent growing.
also try to switch up the lifts that your doin for each muscle that might help. I hit a plateau with my chest so i did db bench for a little while and then went bach to BB bench, it helped.
If your bench has hit a plateau, switch to a different pressing movement that will compliment your bench. Like board press, floor press, pin press, db press, j press, etc. Also take a look at your form, make sure you're accessory work is solid (triceps, shoulders, lats), and don't be scared to reduce volume.
Having said that, if your goal is to gain muscle, try eating more food.
Thanks, eatting isn't something im worried about right now, I just want to switch up my routine.
If anyone could suggest a 4-5 day routine, i'd be interested.
Your Stated Problem: not gaining muscle, bench plateau.
Our Solution: make slight modifications to your routine/technique, eat more, rest more.
What You Really Meant to Say: hey guys, I'm too lazy to research some routines and/or design my own, so can you give one to me so I can blame my lack of progress on your routine?
What I Really Meant to Say: no one here is paid to spoon feed you, so do some homework and when you're ready to post a routine to ask advice, feel free. And don't forget to eat more.
