Advice on Current Training Program


#1

I have been using rescue athlete for the last year and a half, and I am curious as to what some of the more experienced lifters in these forums think of it. A brief description of the website: Run by Air Force Pararescuemen, program designed for those training for or in the special operations community.

I have enjoyed the training and feel challenged by it, but to be honest I haven't seen incredible gains from the program. I follow it religiously, and often add in a little bit of extra work as I see fit. I recently graduated a special operations selection course and lost about 15lbs (175 down to 160) in the process. I would really like to regain this weight and possible add more (I'm 6'1"). My question is: Is the programming on this site appropriate to my goals of adding some muscle mass and strength? I understand that a lot of this also comes down to my effort and dedication, and I assure you that this is not an issue.

Any critiques of the program or general advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
