Hi, New member, looking to lean up and get stronger with less gym time :D

Hi!
 
I've just finished reading up on Martin Berkhans' "Leangains Method" and I noticed the routine is very basic but promises to get the job done when leaning up and the suggestion is to not mess with it.
 
so its 3 days a week in the gym. My plan is to do yoga 2 times a day everyday, these are easy sessions but challenge balance and helps bio mechanics which will in turn help my lifting.
 
Has anyone got better results from doing less? ive always been a practitioner of "more is more" and "more is better" but im 31 years old and its starting to catch up to me, as i dont feel like im recovering from the workouts and strength has stalled and im spinning my wheels, ive had the same physique for about 5 years and have been lifting for 15 years natty. Would you recommend a nice mild AAS cycle? 


Anyway! nice to meet you :D

    How many days you train is largely irrelevant. It's the intensity and amount of training that counts. Many fall into the trap on what the bodybuilding mags and such put out with routines that may suit a guy on steroids and with great genetics but are unrealistic for the average natty guy. Many who workout do more than they actually need to, fannying about with multiple exercises and sets per bodypart that are far from optimal, though some enjoy being in the gym for hours on end. 
     
    The basic compound exercises along with isolation exercises (for arms) and a good diet and rest are all most require to put on a decent bit of muscle, though some unlucky blokes (the ectomorph types) will struggle no matter what they do. 
     
    At 31 your T levels will not have dropped by much at all, though maybe you've always had low(ish) T levels. If you feel you're not recovering it may be down to overtraining and/or diet and rest. If you do go down the dark side then 250mg of testosterone per week for 10 to 12 weeks would be all you need for a first cycle and some Nolvadex for post cycle recovery.

    Thanks for the replies guys. 
     
    Airbourne Warrior, I will use the basic routine it looks like this:
     
    Monday
    Deadlift 2x6
    Overhead Press 3x8
    Accessory: Calves, biceps or Triceps - 2 x10
     
    Wednesday
    Bench Press - 3x8
    Row 3 x 8
    Accessory: Calves, biceps or Triceps - 2 x10
     
    Friday-
    Squat 3 x10
    Weighted Chin up - 3x8
    Accessory: Calves, biceps or Triceps - 2 x 10
     
    Ill will add an extra day for arms and do lateral raises and some high rep Bench to improve the lift
     
    Dorian video was great! back to basics but some very valuable information.
