    Full body workout for gaining mass

    Mon, Wed, Fri:

    Squats
    2 x warmup sets
    2 x heavy sets

    20 x Pullovers

    Bench press
    2 x warmup sets
    2 x heavy sets

    Deadlifts
    2 x warmup sets
    2 x heavy sets

    Military press
    3 x heavy sets

    Ab crunches


    Would this be okay for gaining mass? or should i just stick to doing each muscle group once a week...say for example:

    Mon - Bi's, chest, Shoulders
    Wed - Legs
    Fri - Tri's, Back

    Thats what ive been doing for a while now but i was thinking about maybe trying for the full body workout 3 times a week to see if its effective, i heard it was

    you want to do that same workout 3 times a week?

    I would add some pulling in there like chinups or rows.

    Is doing the same workout 3 times a week a bad idea? i just got told that its a good routine for fast mass building, if not ill just go back to my old routine which seemed to have worked so far and just add squats and deadlifts which i never really did much of

    Your missing alot of muscles though. And your also not working anything very hard with just 4 sets. Unless you were lifting very VERY heavy.

    its looks ok but i would do it twice per week i.e. MON and FRI and you could do abs and low intensity cardio on wednesday also add rows after deadlifts, you might as well do 2 sets for military press (they get worked from benching, rows etc so why do more for them then chest?)

    why not follow an HST routine if full body is what you want to do?
