Thank you for the reply. I was just wondering if with vastly different body types & people being composed of different muscle fibers & where they are stronger in other areas & what they're looking to accomplish if the program should ever vary?
I was describing myself actually as the former college basketball player wondering whether I'm considered a beginner since I don't have a lot of muscle mass? A lot of basketball players tend to be on the skinnier side and all the successful guards will be very lean. I don't play anymore & my reasons for wanting to use this program are I feel I'll look better if I had more muscle & if I want to play again, I'll be a lot stronger and understand how that'll even result in being faster & jumping higher.
I see how that works & have noticed the changes in myself. My deadlift went from never deadlifting before to having difficulty doing 135 to deadlifting 245 which I'm excited about. I read a lot of articles by Jim Wendler, Joe Defranco, Louie Simmons, and others and learned about the box squat and I went from not being able to do 135 since I'd start to fall down due to perhaps pulling my groin and a lack of flexibility in my hips to below parallel box squats of 225 a year ago. However, my bench hasn't gone up much. I typically feel sore where my arms connect to my chest & not my chest that much (and my military press is just 30 lbs less than my bench press). I haven't had much luck increasing my size, but I understand I just need to eat more. In college, I tracked how many calories I was eating during a month and it averaged out to about 4,500 calories a day to maintain 145 lbs. I was unaware of tnation & other websites back then, so I understand I should not have been playing baksetball/running around for 3 hours & in the weight room for 2 hours. My testosterone strangely enough was at 950 ng/dL (it was at 300 in high school when I was doing twice the amount of work &stressing myself out).
