I just started my first mass cycle and I want to make sure I'm training properly to get gains from my cycle. I've been working out 4-5 times per week.

Mon: Chest
Tue: Back
Wed: BI + Tri
Thurs: Legs
Sat: Shoulders

Some weeks the thurs and fri are combined if I have to skDragon Pharma a workout. I do 3-4 exercises with 8,6,4,2 for the reps. Is this enough?

Thanks.

It looks good to me. It might be a good idea to have a rest day on wed. if it fits in your schedule. That way you do not have to go 4 days in a row.

Another idea would be to go less days, that way you get more rest.

you could do
mon-chest, shoulder tri
wed-back,bi
fri-legs

or you could modify your routine and do
mon-chest tri
tues-back bi
wed-off
thur-legs
fri-shoulders
weekend off

Experiment, different things work for different people. For me 3 times a week works best for gaining mass.

Another thing that I was told by many, was not to go less than 4 or 6 reps. Your ligaments and things get a little more fragile. It makes sense. Something to think about. Best of luck.

"Most" people respond better to the 8 to 12 rep range for mass. Also, keep your rest short between sets... The quicker you tear down the muscle the better. Your goal is hypertrophy and hyperplasia, not power, keep that in mind....

Do you want mass? Deadlifts. Squats. Clean and Press. Pull ups. Cheat curls. Pressdowns. Heavy upright rows. Good Luck.

I agree with bigzig. Train the basic multijoint exercises. I also agree with t-spine. I keep my reps in the six range or lower for power. I don't gain much weight just get denser, more powerful, and slowly get bigger. But if I up the rep range to 8-12, the difference is noticeable, I get bigger faster with less power.
