    Hypergrowth Muscle mass training q's

    Hi! I have just purchased an e-book called Hypergrowth muscle mass training. The rountine sounds good to me and I cannot wait to get started, but I would really appreciate your opinions on this.
    I read down to the days you exercise on, and they are...
    Week 1
    Monday= Legs
    Tuesday= Chest
    Wednesday= Back
    Thursday= Delt/ Arms
    Friday= Legs
    Saturday= Rest
    Sunday= Rest

    Week 2
    Monday= Chest
    Tuesday=Rest
    Wednesday= Back
    Thursday= Rest
    Friday= Delt/ Arms
    Saturday= Rest
    Sunday= Rest

    Week 2 sounds well, but I thought you were supposed to have a day off between each workout day? Any help would be great! Anyone who has heard or used this kind of training before?
    Thanks!

    not familiar with that system but you do not have to have a day off in between, it is ideal but the most important thing is that it fits into your schedule and that you will be consistent.

    I'm curious NG, what is your current workout program? How many sets do you do for each BP, reps, and rest time between sets.

    I currently train 4 days per week, one bodypart per day (the only one I am not training now is chest, I am rehabing a rotator cuff injury)

    Sets range from 6-8 (not including warmup sets), reps are 4-8 done to failure after warmup.

    I don't really time my rest between sets but it's about 2 minutes, more for squats and deadlifts.

    So you only train each BP 6-8 sets a week and that produces growth? So how many exercises per BP do you do. Back for example?

    Back would be 4 exercise, for example, last back workout:

    Pulldowns 2 sets
    Bent over rows 2 sets
    Hammer strength rows 2 sets
    Deadlifts 2 sets

    I do a warmup set and 2 weight aclimation sets before my 2 working sets.

    Do you do a warm-up for each exercise or just the first one? Right now I'm doing three working sets. Is two better or just preference?

    Just Joking -

    I like to warm up with the first one. But, sometimes I will do a warmup set before each shoulder type movement. (I have a bad shoulder)

    I do a general warmup for my first exercise and then I do what is called a couple of weight aclimation sets before my 2 work sets rather than just jumping to my heaviest weight.

    I find that for me 2 does it but it is not written in stone, some days I do more sets depending on how I feel.
