A breakdown of a workout

Ok so the breakdown of my workout is a usual rotation of
Day 1 chest and tri’s
Day 2 back and bi’s
Day 3 legs, delts and traps

This is just repeated continuously with 5k runs thrown in 3 times a week on days I have time.

My workout is purely sets of 12-15 reps of each exercise at approx 60% of my max weight with no specific number of sets as I keep going until near fatigue.

My aim is to build mass with the idea of time under tension training.

Is this the correct route and also would it be wise to throw in heavy sessions with lesser reps?

Any help would be appreciated.

    How long have you been training?

    What are your strength levels?
    Diet on point?
    Weight?

    If your a beginner then I think a 5x5 or 3x5 routine is the route that you should take. It took me a long time when I first started to come round to that way of thinking, where I could have used my time alot better than just doing endless sets and reps if I had listened earlier.

    Happy to give more advice if you reply

    "Build mass" and "3 x 5k runs"
     
    Wouldnt bother with the 3 runs for a while, should you want to attempt to add size.
     
    If you must, then just one run a week.
     
    All energy needs to go into building strength/muscle................then lots of rest wth a good diet.
     
    Just my opinion though :)

    Lots of food mate. Enough so you are gaining weight every week, ideally a few hundred grams per week if you can be that accurate. Do that with a stronglifts 5x5 of a Frankie 5x5 routine you will grow like a weed mate!

    The human physique is more than capable of adding mass and conducting 3 x 5k weekly runs. My old job required me to run on average 30-50k a week and plenty of us were big units. As Brett says, plenty of food and a simple mass routine like 5x5 is all you need.
