comment Is it healthy to exercise a muscle when it's still sore?
Yevgenly very good answer. +1000 for mentioning "split routines - where you train each muscle once a week - are very inefficient for the vast majority of beginner & intermediate lifters. "

I agree with your answer mate on few exercises being better than more exercises. In some other answer I think I told you that nothing works for me apart from SS. I am not trying the Pyramid anyways, have learnt from my mistakes :-)

comment Does one exercise per body part work?
@Kate : I agree with your comment and Mark Rippetoe.. I fail fast on most programs because I cant keep on increasing the weight. +1 on the definition of "working" too, most people come out so tired from the Gym that they cant do anything meaningful after that.

Can someone get very ripped with the pyramid program with only one exercise(one obvious exercise) ?

comment Does one exercise per body part work?
@DaveLiepmann : Baiscally my question is "Does X work ?". The guy was just a reference. I was wondering if a program like X exists ? It can happen, I was first suggested a program like starting strength and than went on to read about SS and stronglifts ?

comment Should each day's lifting target one muscle group or multiple muscle groups?
Can you please give references to Jim Wendlers programs. This makes a lot of sense. Add strength + size routines together, this would give very good results.

@DaveLiepmann : Progressed "sub optimally" would be an exaggeration. I would clarify if he was just another big bloke(like so many others), I wouldn't bother mentioning him. The aesthetics are very good, he could win a few competitions and the standout point was his routine which is remarkably different, hence the question. I am asking if this routine makes sense, can it add both size + make someone ripped.

@kate,@nathan : I can only share what the guy told me. He says he tried a lot of other programs till he figured out that this works. I also trust him the bloke seems honest. He strongly says that 3-4 exercises per body part with 8-10 reps are a waste of time for him. No he is not a novice might have 7-8 years of training behind him. His legs are well built, I forgot to mention that he does straight leg dead lifts.

comment Exercise for Upper chest
Somehow the best program that worked for me(after years of experimenting) was Starting strength. This gave me the best size and strength results for all body parts. The once a week routines seem to be less volume for me and the typical 3x8 (2 or 3 exercises) per body part twice a week quickly makes me a touch smaller. I know it is not easy to comprehend :-) One small tweak that I did to SS from my side was to do 5x6 instead of 5x5. I think my body doesn't like more than one exercise per body part. I would like to know your thoughts on this. How would you add volume to such a guy ?

comment Exercise for Upper chest
@DaveLiepmann , Moses : Yes, I eat enough. Like I mentioned I have a defined lower\mid chest and a strong back with good arms. The shoulder also develops well with more volume. However the upper chest doesn't respond. To be honesst I have failed at exercises(either weight or volume) but never felt a pump in the upper chest area. I am 6ft 1 inches and 198 pounds.

comment Exercise for Upper chest
Greg : I do make good strength gains on any exercise if I put it up in my SS routine. My problem is my lower chest is more developed than my Upper chest when I try to emphasize it I am not sure I am able to isolate it enough neither do I see much returns in terms of size.
