Hey all, I'm a longtime lurker and first time poster.
I'm a collegiate rugby player, and also an Army ROTC cadet. So it's hard to get decent lifting in while dealing with ROTC workouts and rugby practice, each of which is 3-4x a week.
We're on winter break now, and so, those workouts aren't happening for me until school starts back up, and was wondering what everyone thought a good use of the time would be?
I was considering doing Smolov's base cycle, seeing as how lower body strength is crucial for rugby (I'm a second row), but don't know if I'm strong enough to warrant it. (weight is 225 but A2G squat is 250, but I am really tall, so keep that in mind)
Some people have told me just to do Stronglifts for the 3 weeks, and follow linear progression, but I don't know if that's the best use of my time or not. And thought I'd ask you guys' opinions.
