It really depends on your goal. Southpaws main goal is hypertropy/size, so this sort of set up would work perfect for him.

Sorry I meant to put this in my log a mod can merge this with my other thread or delete it.


As for TERMINATOR, I've just started doing this high volume training so I don't know how good it will work because this is the second workout I've done using high volume.

The guy I'm training with right now is a former powerlifter, that used to train at westside barbell.

I'm in a sort of experimental phase as of right now to find what works best. After 4 weeks of this I'll know if it will be worth continuing with.

Really? Who? This template is 100% opposite of a powerlifter program, especially one coming from westside barbell, which is why I ask.

His name I Joe but I have yet to get his last name as I've only trained with him twice. He said he trained there for a very short period of time because he got into Powerlifting late and couldn't really compete with the other guys there at the time and he wasn't willing to use Steroids as much as the other guys.


From what he is telling me now, he's having me do high volume training so I can get my endurance up and then the next week, start bringing up the weight and moving down in rep range and then repeat.

Honestly, there is nothing out there that is safe that's going to give you fast results. That's one of the problems with people in this country they are always looking for quick results.

Look at it this way, Bodybuilding or pretty much any sport is a marathon, not a sprint, it takes time and dedication to get there, and not many people are willing to accept that. So they take shortcuts and end up getting screwed up in the process.

I took me 3 years of training naturally to get from a skinny twig at 128lbs to 156 and a lot of trial and error.

So I suggest, stick to your basic lifts (Rows, Pull Ups, Squats, Deadlifts, Bench)

get a lot of Calories, Protein and Carbs and get a lot of sleep and rest.


Best of luck
