    Usually to build bulk you work a muscle group every other day. That gives it time to regrow.
    Diet is also important. If you eat cheeseburgers and fry's you are wasting your time.
    I concurr , in my experience if you are after muscle size do slow sets of 12 reps with a moderate weight . Actual strength is a different kettle of fish though, big weights low reps ,lots of sets.
