Power 90 Modified Workouts for Mass. Any problems with this?
So, all I have at my disposal at this point is Power 90 as I want to become ripped and not skinny like I currently am. I modified the workouts recently so that it would be more focused on muscle growth. I have heavier dumbbells so that I struggle between the 8th and 10th rep. I also do abs afterwords everyday. I do not do cardio phase as I get enough cardio daily anyway.

Are there any flaws or recommendations on this sort of workout?

Sounds like you got the workout part solved. Be mindful that there is also a nutrition component that is extremely important as well. Those two components combined will get you moving in the rigt direction towards your goals. Skip one component and you will struggle.

How is your nutrition? Are you taking in an excess # of calories? If so how much? I look forward to hear from you.

Doing abs everyday may be counterproductive because the workout tears down the muscle fibers and then they need time to recover and grow. If you over-train them you will hinder results. I would suggest doing abs every other day.

The only other thing, which you probably already know, is to eat a lot of food, (but keep it high quality, no junk). You can use the calorie calculator on this site under the tab, "Eat Smart/Nutrition Tools/Caloric Needs", to get a starting point, and then adjust from there as needed.

Congrats on getting started!
