About to Start WS4SB, Good Idea?

I’m about to start the WS4B program. I was wondering if this is a good idea. I having been training for about 4 months and am ready to change up my current workout routine. I play Basketball on Tues and thurs nights. And sometimes play football on sundays. Is this workout a good idea and does it provide good size gains? I am 5’11 and 193lbs. Not sure about BF%.

Post your maxes, former routine, and pics.

I started it yesterday, so I can’t comment on size gains. I hadn’t been to the gym for about 6 months, but I picked it over some of the other beginner programs because of the strength and speed template. I get to work on lifting, then on the speed/conditioning days I do EDT/crossfit interval type training to work on burning fat and getting fit. I’d suggest starting slow, then if things are going good ramping up the intensity. If you’ve been training consistently for 4 months, I don’t see a problem with it.

I just did 9 weeks of WS4SB part 3 make sure you do part 3. I have a much bigger chest and shoulder development along with a bigger back. I slacked with legs. I definitely recommend it.

WS4SB is a great program, and it’s fucking fun to work up to a 3-5rm twice a week.

The assistance work is generally a higher volume, so you will gain some mass if you eat for it.
