Starting from scratch, I’m 34 years working as a welder (daytime, afternoon and night shifts).
First started with stronglifts 5x5 and then moved on and tried different programs and got stuck on a program with mixed reps schemes each day which worked for a while, but now it’s taking to long to finish the workout and the estimated maxes are getting to high to quickly.
Soooo, I’ve been doing some thinking and some research and got to a conclusion that 5/3/1 fits me better, recovery wise and time wise and the gradual build up to greater maxes.
Read about 2 templates/programs that I’m interested in doing and they are 5s pro and hardgainer.
What do you think would benefit me more to start on. My goals are to get as strong as I possibly can, if mass gains occur, then I won’t cry.
My stats are
Deadlift:167,5kg (with straps)
