    I started this routine and a trainer at the gym asked me about my sets/reps..When I told him I do 4x6, 2x12 and 3x8, he said that was too much variation, that for a few weeks I should focus on strength (do all 3 days 4x6), then endurance (2-3x12). Any thoughts?

    There is nothing wrong with that routine.. Erik wrote it and it works.

    :yeahthat: I'm currently doing it. Just started but I have done it in the past with desirable results (it was fat loss for me).

    What's your current goal?

    i love this routine, been doing if for 6 weeks and still making gains. my shoulders are the worse to grow in the past, but im starting to get lil caps and veins showing!! woop woop! ill keep at this till i stop progressing, have upper body/lower body splits waiting in my phone for when this stops doing what i want or i get really bored, but hasnt happened yet so why fix it if it aint broken?

    Boredom is not a programming variable; that's a mindset issue.

    Keep working it.

    I'm just starting out and was wondering do the day 1 exercises stay at 3-4x6, Day 2 2-3x12 and day 3 stays the same for the same exercises period or do they rotate through each exercise each week. i.e. Day 1 exercises will go to 2-3x12, day 2 to day 3's rep/set etc etc ????

    Ta muchly!!!

    You could add this once you've gone through with the program
