    Is that the skinny on, fat one or one in between?

    Something i've learned is that if you use compund lifts and push your body to its limit - it will grow irrespective of bodytype. Of course, keep reps between 4 and 8.

    Base the program around Bench, Squats and Deadlifts, or, Weighted Dips, Leg Press and Rack Pulls, or, D/B Press, Front Squats and Power Cleans - all compound lifts. Lift, huff and puff, go to failure or almost failure, EAT and you should grow.

    All your bodytype dictrates is whether you will be cut/ripped and not bulk as easy, or whether you will bulk easily but not be as cut or ripped. All you need is a stimulus to grow, and that stimulus is resistance.

    If anyone disagrees please let me know.

    I would try to minimize ur lifts by doing as many compounds as possible. Also, like stated above, make sure u eat! I'm an ecto, and when bulking I eat at least 5500 cals/day. You might not need this much, but it's better to have to much than too little...

    I really like the looks of this program, about to start it myself:
