    Reps... 5 x 5 Vs Hypertrophy

    okay.
    i'm doing push/pull/legs
    im doing

    Monday - Push
    Tuesday - Pull
    Wednesday - Legs/Abs
    Thursday - Push
    Friday - Pull
    Saturday - Legs/abs
    Sunday - off

    If i did monday/tuesday/wednesday with a 5x5 routine, then did thursday/friday/saturday with
    5x8 (is that a good number? or 5x12...)
    will i get good Mass AND strength gains?

    or would i be better off sticking with 5 x 5 .

    you wont get any mass gains unless you eat more
    "brb being brainwashed into thinking that i need protein to gain muscle. Im gaining just as much muscle on a vegan diet, and not worrying about protein at all. And if you ask the person why do you need this much protein they will give you some bullchit answer because they don't know chit and just believe whatever some idiot on a forum tells them." -- Shirohige

    which is better, doing a cycle (5x5 the first time through the week, then 5 x 8-12), or doing straight up 5x5?

    throw this idea of 8-12 = mass and 1-5 = strenght out the window, in reality, they are interconnected, you WILL gain with either provided your eating a surplus

    the difference is progression, your lifts will increase faster on 5x5 compared to 5x12 so its up to you.

    i would do 5x5

    do some differently etc...

    Some of the biggest dudes lift heavy as sht
    The ones that lift heavy but are small simply didn't eat enough to gain weight (some competitors do this on purpose)
    So yeah, do 5x5 and make sure you eat. eat goddamnit
