    Am I doing to much?

    Hello I follow the Wannabebig Routine I, but i do sets of 5 on each exercise. Am i doing to much? I have been working out for about 3 months. I lost 15 lbs. and my body fat went from 30% to 23%. Thank you.

    If your still making gains you can keep at it. Once your gains slow down a bit try dropping the volume.

    I'd say you will see just as good of results with 3 sets on most things and 3-5 sets on squat, bench, deadlift.

    "sets of 5"? As in unspecified number of sets at 5 reps each? Or 5 sets at unspecified number of reps?
