Because I'm a nice guy and I want everyone to benefit from all the years of my fucking up, here's the new big-15 templates and overall layout. I will be writing more about it in the book, but I'm going to cover some of the templates and splits to be used and why.
Layout 1 - 3 big / 3 small
This is the main template I will implore most guys to use.
Basically, you have three big workouts with all of the multi-joint big movements, and ball busting sets. For the big stuff you'll employ 50% sets and try to beat not only your previous weeks rep total, but that days 50% total. This means that if you're having an off day and can't beat last weeks total reps, you can still try to beat the 50%.
And you will have three "small" workouts during the week that cover things like biceps, triceps, delts, traps, and abs. These workouts will be high in volume, lighter in poundage with short rest periods. For those that did the 65 pound barbell challenge, you get the idea.
There will be a rotation of workouts. So on the 3 big/3small template you'll actually have 4 big workouts but they are split out over 7 total days.
Day 1 - big 1 - upper #1
Day 2 - small 1 - bicep/triceps
Day 3 - big 2 - lower #1
Day 4 - small 2 - delts/traps
Day 5 - big 3 - upper #2
Day 6 - small 3 - biceps/triceps
Day 7 - off
Day 1 - big 1 - lower #2
Day 2 - small 1 - delts/traps
Day 3 - big 2 - upper #1
Day 4 - small 2 - biceps/triceps
Day 5 - big 3 - lower #1 (from week 1)
Day 6 - small 3 - delt/traps
The other templates that will be outlined will be a 2 big/4 small and a 2 big/2 small. These would look like so......
2 big / 4 small
Day 1 - small 1
Day 2 - small 2
Day 3 - big 1 - upperbody
Day 4 - small 3
Day 5 - small 4
Day 6 - big 2 - lowerbody
Day 7 - off
2 big / 2 small
Day 1 - big 1 - upperbody
Day 2 - small 1 - combine biceps/triceps/delt/traps
Day 3 - off
Day 4 - big 2 - lowerbody
Day 5 - small 2 - combine biceps/triceps/delt/traps
Day 6 - off
Day 7 - off
These templates will be designed to have you moving big ass weights through high reps. Which is exactly what is needed for fast mass gain. You will do high intensity with low volume on the big stuff, and high volume with lighter weights and short rest periods on the small stuff. I go into great detail about the benefits of each and why this split will put mass on you faster than anything else you've probably tried. I have used all of these various training ideas but never have really been able to piece them together. The LRB template was the initial start of that, but I've been able to take this to a new level.
I'm still fine tuning all the little pieces but I'm excited to start this template myself and I have no doubt the results are going to be fucking phenomenal.
