The "Building On" Technique for Size and Strength

Hey, I just did 12 weeks of your Building On routine from a few articles ago. I achieved very good results and enjoyed the lifts. A lot different than a standard bodybuilder's routine. 

I'm looking for something new now. I want to lift 4 days. Are you familiar with with Doug's mass building routine?  I value your opinion as what you have said has worked for me. If you are not a fan of this can you suggest something else? I appreciate it. 


My Answer: Doug's program looks like a good one to follow after the Building On routine.  The reason is that the Building On program is an abbreviated workout with very low volume.  In contrast Doug's program is a high volume program, which will build more muscle.  Alternating between high volume and low volume programs is called "backcycling," and it is an effective way to build muscle over time.  I cover this muscle building strategy in my book Strength and Physique: High Tension Exercises for Muscular Growth.
