I've been tinkering with a theory that I believe has merit, and I'd appreciate some input as to whether this is a plausible exercise strategy: Bodybuilding with low/moderate weight and 10-15 rep ranges 3 days/week, followed by two day's rest, then a strength training day of high weight/low rep compound movements (deadlift,squat, bench press, weighted pull-ups).
My idea is that during the bodybuilding days, the low/mod weight increases the sarcoplasm in the muscle cells, but does little in the way of tearing the myofibrils responsible for power output (as is my understanding). This allows for a day of strength training in order to tear those myofibrils and increase strength while increasing mass. Not to mention HGH surges from bodybuilding and Testosterone from the strength day.
A routine would look something like:
day 1-back, arms (4 sets of 10-15 reps each exercise)
day 2-legs (same)
day 3- chest, shoulders, triceps (same)
day 4 and 5 rest
day 6- strength day
day 7 rest
Best of both worlds, or recipe for overtraining? Thanks!
