Well, I did the No Bull Plan over Christmas combined with heavy lifting and put on a fair amount of muscle mass in about a month so it does work. Back to the feed bag I guess. I've read Berardi's From Scrawny to Brawny and your Mass Gain so I've got the principles down, I think. I hate the idea of putting on blubber but I seem to be able to lose 5lbs in a week with all the exercise so I guess I shouldn't worry. Of course, it's when I want to lose than it stays and when I want to gain that it doesn't!
I'll try the higher reps. Rippetoe talks about varying the reps as helping a lot on growth. Throw in a couple of gallons of milk a day and 20 super squats, and I'll be fine!
