    Question How Is This Mass Routine

    Im 34, 6ft 1in, 196lb. I would like to tone up but mostly put some mass on for a cruise Im going on in March 05. I have cut out fast food, trying to eat several meals a day, but getting mostly 3 meals a day chicken, tuna, ect.. with ON 100% whey protein in between meals (thinking about switching to Pro Complex with 55grams of protein?) I had a personal trainer who is a body builder design a routine for me. I would like opinions. Not sure if Im doing to much or not enough?

    exactly DD...to many isolation movements. stick to compound movements 10-15 sets for large groups, 6-10 for small groups. moderate intensity for both groups. BTW think about what u'r PT look like, this is evidence of his training philosphy.

    I'd try for less sets than advised actually...maybe 6-9 sets for large groups (back), 3-6 for chest, 3-6 for legs, and even less for the smaller muscles like biceps ... of course you could always to even less

    Did this trainer explain to you how and why this routine will meet your goals?
    Have you done training with this type of volume before, and if so, did it work?

    Seems like too much volume to me. You're welcome to try it out though. My suggestion is to not reach failure on any, or very few, of the sets for each muscle group.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
