Hey exercise section. Since starting my transformation I've been focused more so on the Nutrition section than training, so I'd appreciate any input from the members on this board.

Also like to first note that I checked the stickies and ran a search, but the only info I could find on the site regarding my thread title was a post dating back to 2006 in the female section.

I'm about 3 months into bulking and I've been following a similar routine to Layne's PHAT but with some minor adjustments. I recently had a deload because I was feeling more and more worn-out toward the end of my workouts and thought I could use some recovery. I've been back into it for about 2 weeks and I'm feeling the same, so I'm thinking of switching things up to a 6 day upper/lower split.

I'm thinking with lower volume and higher frequency, I'll be less likely to get worn out nearing the end of my workout and achieve a higher level of overall intensity. It will also give me a chance to be in the gym more often. I'm unemployed at the moment pending military enlistment and hanging around the house all day is mind numbingly boring.

As far as I can tell, the latter would be a lot better (at least for me) - but that's why I'm here, to get the input of people more experienced than me. I've trained both HIT and high volume before, and I definitely prefer HIT.

Appreciate any advice or critique.
