First of all I want to introduce myself as a new member of T-Nation
I have been training for almost 14 months now , more less successfull I guess.
I in the first 6 months I really made the best gains, however once i've started I was REALLY skinny. I benched something like 60 pounds , squat and DL was something about 100 pounds.
I could raise my bench to 120 pounds , squat and DL to nearly almost 200 pounds.
After the 6 months things really went well. I had to make some breaks, neglected proper nutrition and chose ridicilous workout routines. As a matter of fact my strength decreased , but now , in 2012, I want to start over again
At the moment I bench about 110 pounds , deadlift is 230 and squat only 150. Keep in mind that this is not 1RM, I am able to lift these weights approximately 6 times. Anyway I cannot be happy with my progress overall. However there are some things i've learned :
how to eat properly, good technique in the compound lifts and concistency is very important.
My initial question is which routine should I choose ? In the stickies are mostly TTB recommended and on some other threads people recommend the routines from ( I dont remember his nickname , but the thread title was something like : Pick this Routine instead of this bad routine ; I think you know whom I mean ).
I want to add that I have plenty of times at the moment, so time doent really play a role.
What do you think if you keep my progress, if you can even call it progress, and available time in mind ?
