    Splits when lifting for size






    When lifting for strength training I used a push/pull split- Bi's/Shoulder, Tri's/Verticle back, Chest/ Horizontal back. Should I change this up when lifting to bulk up? Any suggestions welcome.Thanks

    You don't have to change your exercises when trying to make size gains, you simply change your rep range. Usually strength rep ranges are heavy weight in the 1-6 range. To go for hypertrophy, you'll want to use a weight that allows your rep range to be between 6-12. Make sure you have a calorie surplus otherwise, you won't see gains no matter what you do. Also, I'm hoping you forgot to mention your lower training, Squats, deadlifts, etc. You'll need to incorporate those to stimulate size gains as well.

    Yeah I did leave them out, I love the dead lift so train for that specifically. So Even though It does need to be incorporated with the other stuff I actually consider it to be a whole other routine.

    splits don't need to change when training for size.

    food needs to change.
