Need URGENT help with my routine!!!

#1 Postby Nicholas_Weir » Sat Nov 12, 2011 7:59 pm

Hey guys, so I am graduating from high school this thursday and am going to have much more time on my hands now and am looking to rest on a routine and stop chopping and changing once and for all.

I need your opinions on the following routines with regards to building size which will support my high calorie diet as i seem to just gain fat on a 5 day split.


These are the options:

A Full Body routine (3x a week)

or

GVT, German Volume Training (3 days a week)

or

An Upper/Lower Split (4 days a week)

Note, Working out 4 days a week is no problem for me if that helps.


Thanks guys, I am looking forward to hearing your opinions.

My instinct is telling me to go with the GVT routine.

Or a regular Full body workout?

Yeah something like 5x5.

Google "Greyskull LP Routine". I could send you the e-book if you want.
