  1. Hey guys! Glad to know you're also trying Derek's routine. Is great. Please post your progresses and reviews Thanks!
  2. Hey, Arion. Many thanks for your extensive input! I'll check out those books and resources and definitely will give it a go to those recipes! They look both tasty and healthy. As summer approaches, my diet tends to go downhill a bit with a little of junk foods every now and then, specially sweet treats (chocolate, baked goods)... Anyway, I like to give myself a break from time to time, so my body responds better when I resume diet/training hard. I'm cutting some fat off with cardio, although I'm not following a strict diet in order to maximize fat loss. I'm a very casual bodybuilder, but will definitely go for more mass by the end of summer. This is why I'm trying new ways to train in order to maximize mass gains. I'm going to check out those resources you've mentioned. Thanks!
  3. Hey, boardn10. Thanks for your input! I guess it depends on the volume. Whenever I've tried a high volume workout (like the German volume training aka 10x10) my muscles are sore for days, so you must train each group every 5-7 days. The same should apply for a conventional body part split workout (chest and biceps, back and triceps, and so on). But from what I see in Derek's workout, low volume/high intensity is the way to go, since you'd be training in high frequency mode (each group every other day or so). So I'm giving it a try with 3x8 heavy weight. I've tried other HST workouts before and I've achieved good results overall. So what you guys think? I'd like to hear from more experienced lifters! You like conventional two muscle groups splits or a high frequency/total body training method like this one for packing muscle? Thanks.
  4. Incredible! You look like 20 years younger! Congrats, mate.
  5. Hey, Fallen_Horse! Thanks. It would be great to hear from Derek himself about that...
  6. Hey everyone. This is my first post here. I was wondering if anyone have ever tried Derek's Total Body Mass routine he's posted here in the site. Since he doesn't say how many sets and reps he would recommend, I haven't tried it yet. Although I guess a 5x5 approach would be a good idea. What do you guys think? Oh, I forgot to mention of course, my main goal is mass, even though I do have some fat I need to burn. I must be around 20% body mass fat. Thanks!
