Default Lifting consecutive days

First off, my goals are to put on mass. I dont think my question requires me to put my work out routine, diet etc.. Any way, my question is, if i wanted to lift, say two or three days in a row, is there a problem with that. I obviously wouldnt be hitting the same muscle group more than once in those three days. And then if i worked out say bicep/chest on monday and i was still sore would it be ok to work out back/shoulders?

The problem with your question is that yes, your workout is, in fact, involved: the reason being that to get the most effective mass gain, you don't tend to work out "biceps" one day, "calves" the next, et cetera. The best programs for packing on mass tend to involve lots of work with compound movements, especially the squat, deadlift, and bench press. In other words, while there is probably no harm done by doing a set of preacher curls one day and a set of calf lifts the next day, you're impeding your own progress by restricting your workout to isolation movements.

So, with that in mind... what is your workout?

Thanks for the quick response. I haven't typed up a routine so here goes nothing. When i say 8-10 or 8-12, that usually means that i get as much weight as i can handle so that i cant get any more up in that 8-12 reps.

Chest/Biceps
Flat Bench: Warm up/ (3/8-10)
Incline Bench: Same as flat
Cable Flys: (3/8-10)
Dips: 3/(8-12)
Standing dumb bell Curls: Warm up set/ (3/8-10)
Preacher dumb bell Curls: (3/ 8) After each set drop set (6-10)
Incline Dumb Bell Curls:(3/ 8) After each set drop set (6-10)


Back/Shoulder
Pulls ups (3/6-10)
Lat Pull Down (3/8-10)
Rows (3/8-10)
Pull Overs (3/8-12)
Seated dumb bell shoulder press: warm up set (3/8-10)
Dumb bell side raises (3/8-10) Drop Set to lower weight on last 2 sets
Dumb bell front raises (3/8-10) Drop Set to lower weight on last 2 sets
Shrugs (3/10)

Legs/Ticeps
Squats warm up set (3/8-12)
Leg press(3/10-12)
Leg curls (3/8-12)
Calf press (3/8-10)
Skull crushers (2/warm up) (3/10-12)
Tricep push down (3/8-10)


Off Days 2 days a week core (abs and lower back)
Mountain biking. Very hilly terrain so i get a good work
out on my legs.

I usually try and switch up my routines. I might do this routine for two weeks or so and then switch exercises but keep muscle groups on the same days. And about two weeks later i will switch the days i work muscle groups. So i might switch to back/bi's, tri/chest, shoulders/legs.

This is my exact routine but it is close to my current. Based on this would i be good for training consecutive days?

If you are looking to workout two days in a row... might I suggest a upper /lower or push/ pull split. I think you might like it better. Look at some of the DFHT. or you could do HST, it's full body 3 times a week and made for "mass gaining". Just search it in the forum and it will come up.

Yeah that ^^

"body part" splits, most of the time, aren't going to give you shit for gains. Upper/lower or full body will give you the best results.

i work out 4-5 days a week and its worked great for me, here's what i do

monday: bench, cleans
bench:4x6
tri-extentions: 3x8
hang cleans: 4x4

tuesday:back, legs
squat/deadlift:4x6
lunges:3x8
lat pulldown:3x8
barbell/seated row:4x6

wensday: speedwork
various speed drills (i dont give away all my secrets, lol, its in my journal)

thursday, just like monday
friday, just like tuesday

btw, there is a little cardio/speedwork on all days (10-15 minutes worth) if your not doing a sport you can sub speedwork for cardio and speed day for a rest day. also, coach has us switch the rep ranges every 2 weeks for some reason between 3x8,4x6 and 8 6 4 2

Awesome, thanks for the info. I understand you dont want to give out your "speed drill" secrets but how to you define speed drills. Like sprints, or lifting type drills? Im actually training for the fire academy right now, that is why i ask.

I don't know what he does, but for wrestling I work on speed by doing sprints, power cleans (more for explosion but it helps anyway) and various drills on an agility ladder. It worked (and continues to work) very well for me.
