    O.k Working Out For Bulk

    Alright I know To gain bulk I need to be eating like a horse.(Quality foods high in protein ec.) High protien diet preferbly 1.5 grams a protein per lb of body weight. I'm taking the right supps (A.S.) Know my question is do I want to lift heavy weight at 6 reps a set every time or do I have to go to 10? Also Im new to lifting only going on a year. Is it better for me to do 2 muscle groups a day example split.

    Bck & Bis
    Chest & Tris
    Shoulders & legs
    off
    Back & Bis
    Chest & Tris
    Shoulder & legs

    Or do I want to work and hit one muscle group hard each day. Example

    Biceps
    Back
    chest
    triceps
    shouldrs
    legs
    off

    Please need help I'm almost 2 weeks in on a cycle I don't want to blow it cause I'm not working out right.

    everyone thinks there is some magic number........"oh, 8 reps..no 10 reps".....etc, etc.......everyone is different.....do what works for you..........people think 10 reps.....then as soon as they get to 10 they stop like its their imaginery wall ..........even if they have the energy for more, they'll stop @ 10.........i say do it to muscle failure........until you know you totally can not put that weight up no matter how hard you push yourself.......and even then you should always try for one more rep.

    This split is great...2 on 1 off. Monday chest/bis Tuesday legs Weds off Thurs Shoulders tris Friday back day off then repeat. The problem with doing chest and tris one day and shoulders the next is your using your shoulders a lot doing chest work and they need to heal

    So if you aim for failure on your first set, and say you hit 8, should you also aim for 8? or til failure? naturally if you aim for failure then your reps will descend as your sets progress. Was just wondering. Darn that imaginary wall, its ingrained in my routine!!
