    If your routine is working then stick with it. AS doesn't make a good routine a bad one.

    but surely i can add more volume to my workouts and train more frequently?

    or is this a myth.

    It may not necessarily be better to do more even if you can.

    Do the basic stuff and conc on lifting more

    I'm no expert on the area of assisted lifting, I have one guy who is about to start a cycle to add size during his off season. Before he trained using a standard legs, push, pull split. While on the cycle he is training with an upper, lower, rest, upper, lower, 2 days rest approach. The routine isnt finalised yet as we are still discussing it but it will be something like, whats shown below.

    Lower 1
    Squats 4x6
    Lunges 4x6
    Leg Press 4x6
    Turkish Get Ups
    Planks

    Upper 1
    Bentover Row 4x6
    Bench 4x6
    Reverse Grip Pulldown 4x6
    DB Shoulder Press 3x8
    Hammer Curls 3x8

    Lower 2
    Hang Power Clean 5x2
    Deadlift 6, 4, 2, 6, 4
    Hamstring Curls 3x8
    Dumbbell Sidebends 3x6
    Weighted Sit-ups 3x6

    Upper 2
    Push Press 6, 4, 2, 2
    Incline Press 6, 4, 4, 2
    Seated Row 2x8, 2x4
    Face Pulls 3x8
    Close Grip Bench 3x6

    This routine is far from what I would call optimal, there are a few issues with this particular person that dictates/limits the choice of exercises.

    I would forget lifting more reps or more sets for more exercises.
    The routine that works for you while off WILL work for you whilst on cycle.
    You will find you can just lift heavier and progress faster, but the work you put in WILL NOT be any easier as some people think, you have to work just as hard but your putting your body in a better environment to grow/get stronger in.
