    You need recovery for supercompensation. Unless you're on skittles then ignore anything I say.

    Sorry not my intention to hijack the thread but just want your opinion on my post to op on the previous page. The split I suggested ( 1/2/3/1/2/3/off/repeat) wouldn't seem like too much volume?

    hey man, you overlooked my post.. sorry about any inconvenience i may be causing you
    does me burning 2400 calories a day sound accurate if i am 24, 5'6, 178 pounds and my activity level is cardio 2-4 times a week? would 2400 calories a day be accurate if i was 24, 5'6, 178 pounds and did a short heavy lifting session of like 7 sets 3x a week or would that be more like 2700?

    also, are diet drinks okay.. are they really treated as 0 calories in my diet?

    thanks in advance my man, really appreciate all the help

    I've been working out for a year and a half and never did compounds until a month ago, hardly ever seen any sort of progress whatsoever and it's getting really discouraging. Also I'm 5'9 and 168lbs. I have a bit of belly fat but not an obese amount or anything like that. I want to gain muscle as well as lose that bit of belly fat, but gaining muscle is my biggest priority. How do I work out properly to do this and what do I eat? And yes I read the stickies and I'm still confused. I was never super consistent on my old programs and I only used weight machines. So a month ago I did a complete 360 and switched to free weights entirely. I've noticed a bit of a strength improvement but absolutely nothing physique wise yet. And I really want to look muscular. I have a bit of coordination issues so my lifts are lower but I'm working on getting them up...

    I've tried a million different workouts and never gotten any sort of results. I need something where I'm going to notice a change in my strength and size. I started stronglifts but I feel it doesn't have enough exercises so that's why I was thinking ICF 5x5 instead.

    What do you think?? Should I post a picture of myself.
    just resharing this as I think it got accidentally missed
    Relative beginner- Lifts
    Squat- 165lbs ( 5 reps by 5 sets )
    Leg Press- 230lbs ( 10 reps by 4 sets )
    Bench- 130lbs ( 5 reps by 5 sets )
    Trap Bar Deadlift- 205lbs ( 3 sets by 5 reps )
    Barbell row- 125lbs ( 5 reps by 5 sets )
    Max Trap Bar deadlift- 300lbs

    I've always had a weak abdominal area, however I do a lot of back extensions/deadlift along with other lower back exercises, so I'd say I have a moderate core strength. Still, its not great, and I would just like to ask you about your favorite/most effective core strength/ abdominal exercise for stability and hypertrophy.

    Again, thanks for taking the time!
    Just to add some extra information here.

    Core training needs to be either anti-extension, anti-lateral flexion, anti-rotation.

    Anti-extension



    --> love this one

    Anti-lateral flexion

    --> DB works fine





    Anti-Rotation





    I disagree with Boyle on certain things, but his approach to core is really good

And warm ups?

    Were you thinking one could for example do it like this: day 1/2/3/1/2/3/off-> repeat? More training frequency than a normal 5 day split
    How long have you been training?
    What are your training goals?

    Linear periodization is going to be the most ideal for novice athletes. I'm a fan of summated microcycles or 3 weeks of training/1 deload week. You can run some pretty simple programs for quite a while as a novice and see great physiological adaptations.

    Once you get some training years under your belt, that's when I personally think block periodization is the best.

    In a 6 day split, you have to be very good at managing the intensity and volume or you will be doing too much and not reaching super compensation.

    I'd need more info about you before I'd say whether or not a 6 day program would work.

    Once you have 2-3 years of training age, once a week just doesn't cut it anymore....and there are more effective ways to program

    I'm a huge fan of upper/lower splits sprinkling in an accessory day if you want to get some bodybuilding work done.
