    2 or 3 days a week?

    I plan on going on a bulking phase for the next 3 months. Do you guys think a 2 day a week or 3 day a week program would be better?

    At least 3 days per week.

    I can't imagine working out less than that. I know many of you do that, and I'm not knocking it, but I know it wouldn't be enough for me.

    I am seriously thinking about adding a 6th day.

    Are you changing your split just because your bulking, or because it's not working for you? If it's just because your bulking, then I say change nothing except for your diet. You know you can progress with that routine.. If it's because it's not working for you, then I say try the three day a week. Two sounds too little to me (but then, that's just me . W8s' five day a week sounds like too much for me, but it obviously works for him. Damn individuality.)

    Why 2 or 3?

    2 would be 2 whole body workouts, more than likely.

    3 would be a push/pull/legs, or a 2 day split.
    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
