    My goal is to obviously to build up more muscle, which entails gaining weight. I'm currently around 152, and hoping to get up to 160 and then trim down. I've been using this workout for a while, and I've seen that I've gotten stronger. My diet has been lacking, so I haven't seen the best results.

    That's changing now though because I'm targeting around 3000 calories a day and getting at least 150 grams of protein. I've heard that if you want to bulk up, one should decrease cardio and increase weights while decreasing reps. This workout requires like 3 days of cardio, and it looks like there's more reps involved. So what do you guys think about this workout program? Should I use a different workout? I'm not an expert at making workouts, so I usually find one online to follow.

    i'd recommend going lower with reps to startup your workout for a muscle group, say 5 reps, do 3-4 sets, move on to next exercise, raise the reps to 8 or 10, do a few exercises, and finish of by burning your muscles by doing drop sets (if your muscles can handle that already)

    dont do too much cardio
    focus on split program for 3-5 days a week

    Try Hellraiser training. Google it.

    Well, I have been going through this. I have to admit that I've gotten "stuck" a couple of times. Took three or four tries to get through week six and week eight. It takes a LOT of time and I hit the "overtraining" wall at least once. (OK, utterly destroy your legs. NOW go run for half an hour? icon_eek.gif )

    In any case, it seems more like a conditioning program than a muscle-building program to me. It's high-repetitions and endurance throughout. Not that there's anything wrong with that - maybe it's just somewhat mis-labeled.
