    Default Looking for some feedback: push/pull/legs

    My goal is both size and strength. I have been working out almost 3 years (minus a couple injury set backs). I plan to work out Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday rotating through these 6 workouts. I will hit each muscle group every 4-6 days. I set it up so that A workouts focus a little more on strength and the B workouts more on hypertrophy. I eat around 2800 calories a day. 40/30/30 split. This is about 150 calories above maintenance.

    DB press 3x5-7
    Incline DB press 3x8-10

    Are you making gains this way? Personally I feel that your volume & frequency is too high for a program with a strength goal. How long have you been training? I highly doubt that you really need 6 days of training, it severely limits your recovering abilities. Use the Westside for Skinny Bastards template, particularly the 3rd version. It will build strength & size depending on caloric intake.
    Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strength. When you go through hardship & decide not to surrender, that is strength.
