    Favorite Way to Train?

    What is everyone's favorite method of training? There are powerlifters in here, bodybuilders, and folks that just want to look good naked. I am curious what approach you adopt and why? Let's share!

    I am being vague but, 6 days a week schedule during cut, and 4 days during bulks. As far as weights. So many methods I use depending on what look/goal is.

    Thereís a few different routines Iíll use throughout the year to switch things up but over all high intensity failure sets and progressive overload. Lower volume.
    Right now itís 4days a week. Chest/bis,back,shoulders/tris,legs. 4-5exercises 1set 4-6reps then a back off set. Both to failure.
    arms get 2 exercises. When an exercise stalls for 2weeks I change it. I plan on sticking with this for the foreseeable future. I think people mess up by changing routines and exercises too often.

    The fortitude training system is my new fav. I liked the push pull legs and bro split. But fortitude is kicking my ass and having fun with it. I like the muscle rounds the best, loading sucks balls.

    I like to mix it up. High intensity cardio one day, lower another. I add lots of bodyweight exercises in with my weight training. I do heavy weight low reps some sessions, the opposite others. My idea is to never let it get stale and keep things fresh and never too structured, while building functional strength and agility for my bouncer job and a great beach body for my girl.

    I like Push, pull, legs or Upper/Lower, usually alternating heavy/moderate weights to avoid/prolong burnout.

    I also just added in walking outside in the heat for 30-40 mins 3-4x a week. Eventually I'll start jogging some bc walking gets really boring and just makes me want to run.

    My favorite styles are Mountaindog and DC. My go to for quite a while was a bit of a mixture of the two. Now thatys changing a bit since I'm working with a good coach on here...

    I've been doing my whole life what many call "Powerbuilding" I guess. (Power type training on the main lifts, w/ some hypertrophy work thrown in w/ it).

    Template im using now is:

    4-days, structured around 4-main lifts (SQ, Bench, DL, OHP) using Wendlers 5/3/1.
    Then 3 assistance exercises after each main lift (Dave Tate "Periodization" style I suppose).
    Also do a 5th Strongman type day (log lift, Viking Press, farmers walks, etc). 30-minute brisk walk thru hilly neighborhood for cardio each day w/ dog.

    I really wish I was more educated on this but I usually do chest/tris, back/bicepts, shoulders/legs, chest/tris, and back/bicepts Mon-Fri. 4 sets for each lift and 16 per muscle group. nothing less than 6 reps and nothing more than 12 (except warm ups). I also do core and cardio 3 days a week. In spite of eating like a horse (fairly clean) it is hard for me to put on more than 10-15 pounds during a cycle, so I'm probably doing something wrong.

    Been mixing it up a little as still can't get to a gym due to lockdown in the UK. So just mixing things up with super high volume at the moment and trying to get as much time under tension as possible. Also been looking into a 20x1 protocol which looks half decent.
