Steve, I'm 45 with little time to work out. I've always been a gym rat but lately, job, kids, life...it's been about almost a year since i worked-out. This is my last go'round and I just want to pack on some mass before my gym routine has to naturally start changing. What can I do for an overall routine to pack on some muscle? I typically deadlift, squat, leg extension/curl, dumbbell bench/incline, dips/pulldowns/pushdowns, dumbbell/ez-bar curl, arnold-press. I do calves with squats...I know that's not enough but with time constraints it's the best I can do....
I'd appreciate ANY advice you can offer. I take HC1 creatine and AMP protein.
Hi, Roy. Steve is no longer with M&S. He now works on his own channel, Massive Iron. You can reach him there. Now, if you would like for me to chime in on this, let me know and I will be glad to.
Steve I’m now entering week 3 of the Bulldozer program and ever since the beginning my body feels like it got massaged by an elephant. This really works!! Couple of questions; when I’m about to experience failure on the next rep, do I reduce the weight or take a short breath and continue? Also do you have any other “bulldozer” programs to try out?
Steve - I’m using this program coming back from major cancer battle. Do you require any “warm up” sets on the ancillary exercises or just jump into the sets required. Thanks.
