Special Winter Mass Program!
If you aren't happy with the answers to those questions, that's okay - it's winter, and that means you can cover up, hit the gym and training table and take this opportunity to pack on say, 20 pounds of serious mass in three months.
If the thought of taking the next 12 weeks to train and eat like the big boys galvanizes you, then this mass program is just for you. The lifting plan is combined with strict adherence to certain mass-gaining principles that will bulk you up.
But the price of growth isn't cheap. Are you willing to devote the time and make the sacrifices that building hard-earned muscle requires? Are you prepared to eat and then eat some more while taking the right supplements at the right times, all centered around hardcore training? Show us.
The Plan Of Mass Attack:
We've assembled a three-month plan of attack: During the first three weeks of each four-week cycle, your workouts will consist primarily of big compound lifts. You'll train six times a week, working each bodypart twice. This regimen will increase strength, which leads to mass gain.
Here's the bodypart breakdown:
During each training day, take as much time between sets as you need. Sit down, rest and conserve your energy. All of your focus should be on the bar and the task at hand.
For the rest of this shirt-shredding mass program, as well as hundreds of other great growth and fitness tips, pick up the January 2007 issue of Muscle & Fitness, on newsstands December 5!
