Help with Bulking Program

Hey looking to bulk up and increase strength.

185 cm 80kg 22 years
deadlift 130x5 squat 85x5 bench 85x5 Press 50x5

Wanting too gain size mainly in leg’s amd increase my deadlift, squat and clean and press number’s.

Looking at training resistance 3 day’s per week, 1 hour per session.

My nutrition is dialed, so i don’t need any advice on that, just a good hypertrophy program, focusing on functional lift’s.


Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength Looks Perfect for you. You workout 3 times a week and the time varies

Workout A
Squat 3x5
Bench Press 3x5
Deadlift 1x5
Chin up 2x8

Workout B
Squat 3x5
Press 3x5
Power Clean 5x3
Dip 2x8

You alternate between A and B.

haha fair enough, that’s actually the program i had in mind, i am just a little concerned about the lack of deadlifting and i don’t know how to powerclean.

I’m going to see a lifting coach soon, to help me with C$P C&J AND PC’s though, so i will most likely get on MR’s SS routine.
