Chad Waterbury’s Next Frontier Routine

It’s to long to post here.

Thoughts on a high frequency program like this? I’ve done the stickied bodybuilding routine for a while, but I’ve realized when I add exercises I grow more. I’m pretty sure I need to switch to something more intensive for a while.
i got tired of reading. give it a go and let us know what you think.
i just skimmed. from the BBers I know they stick to what they know and their own routines. the most important thing that was drilled into my head was rest and not to over work the target area. it may be old school but i feel that less frequency correlates to less of a chance of ripping/tearing something if trained properly, hypertrophy will come in time if you’re patient.

im kinda on the fence about how he refers to mechanics/lumberjacks etc and their specific growth/definition in their respected areas that the utilize daily. just sounds like if you up the frequency on a certain routine its just a faster way to burn out.
I’m looking at new workout routines now — kinda in a rut. Maybe I’m just tired of the back/chest/arms/legs/off routine. Or maybe I never really learned a good routine.

But I’m looking for something new.
Definitely going to do this at the end of June when I’m done with my cut. Been looking for a program like this. Very interesting.

Not sure if anyone will give a shit by then, but I’ll share results.

ill be interested in it. i want to see if it would really be too strenuous on the body to increase the frequency of a workout. i have a more physical job than most, so if it would cause me a problem i wouldn’t even incorporate it at all.

how’s your cut coming? i haven’t seen you post in awhile.

Going ‘too’ well, if that makes any sense. I started at 206 in mid-February and currently down to 185, which is 5 pounds lighter than my target. I’ve had gains in all my lifts and significant improvement in my definition (first time ever I’ve seen striation in my shoulders ) . I’m starting to plateau though so I’ve begun to adjust my diet to see if I can pack on some lean mass to get back to 190 while retaining my BF %. Going to finish it out through June, and then give this a shot to see if I can finally get to 200-205 at around 9-10% BF .
swif you’re like 5’9-5’10 right?

you cutting for a comp?

Yeah, I’ve never done two-a-days so that part will be a new hurdle for me. I’ve never been good at getting to the gym in the AM and having good workouts so that could be a challenge but I’m pretty disciplined when it comes to this stuff.

6’0. Cutting for beach season

oh shit thats tall .. dude i feel ya, im just slowly moving along trying to shed weight, the beach is my last concern though

i was at 156 when i came close to 10% .. but im 5’7
Well wtf then…

Too much contradictory bro science out there. Train often, train less often, spit, swallow.

This program does nothing but confuse me.
I did workout number 1 today. nothing but a peanut. woooo
Currently on week 4 of DeFranco’s Built Like a Badass routine and am really digging it this far.
Frequency is key for anything. Hit everything at least 2x a week. Once a week is fail.

what is your split like for training everything 2x a week?
Fuck I may be crippled tomorrow.

Pussy signing in. :wave:

keep us posted if you can, curious about this

Currently
Upper

I think this is the way to go if you’re intermediate and beyond, but I dont think its ideal for "ectomorphs" or beginners.
im just going to eat peanut butter anaconda indigo sandwiches, ill be swole in no time

I agree, but I like the workout, I am currently woring a 5×5 that I need to do for a few more months still, but once I am done this is VERY interesting for my next workout cycle.

I think the opposite. The lower your training experience, the higher your training frequency should be. Very advanced lifters need less training frequency.

I agree as well. I saw improvements when I had started with Starting strength but a lot of that was because I was eating so much. I saw much quicker improvement when I started doing more e.g.; pushups and pullups on off days.
I’m in the polar opposite camp of Waterbury. Train harder, train less.

Came in here to post this. Agreed.

due to heavier loads and cns fatigue
Noobs also need more motor learning which you get from more frequent training.
