    What worked well for me years ago when I wanted to add thickness was heavy bench, deadlifts, squats, power cleans and military presses from the rack. I concentrated on those as the center piece and they worked. To this day, like after I have been off for a while and have lost size or after moving to more athletic training grappling or running I return to those and thicken up really fast. I'm still a big believer in the basic heavy movements for thickness and base. Then add some ancillaries secondary to them. I do that for 6-8 weeks and then return to more common type of training but keep the big lift in but less frequent. Anyhow that's what has worked for me. With muscle memory I have in my 50s and 1/2 gram of test I can go from 200 to 230 in 8 weeks like that. Leave out the big lifts and it takes longer. I think a big part of it is related to intensity.

    Great suggestion! My issue is that so often it seems I have lots of little injuries. I will do squats but after a point bam there goes a knee, or heavy bench press and out goes my shoulder. I would love to lift heavy but my body is so beat up.

    I have to deal with that too at my age. I try to build a base with high reps for a good while first before going eventually lower in the rep range. Like for squats a couple years ago with some disk herniation and 3 knee surgeries in the past I made it a goal to get 20 reps with 315 in the free squat before going up in weight and lower in reps. I hit is and then gradually worked in the 10-12 rep range in the mid 400s. It worked. I thickened right back up and avoided injury. I can't do it year around anymore like that but you can push like taht for some months then maintain with different less stressful exercises and move on to another body part ready for some hard work. You just ahve to be smart and listen to your body as you get older.

    Here is a pic of me today. Keep in mind I am about to start anadrol and maybe Tren to get size going again.
