Hey everyone, Iv’e been lifting for a little over 3 years years now
I started lifting when I turned 16, I’m currently 19.
My current stats:
Body weight this morning: 77kg
Diet: 3600cals using MyFitnessPall || bulk = +~1kg a week.
Height: 6ft 1inch
Bench: 90kgx3 for two sets
Squat: 100kgx2 (was 110kgx2 about a year and some months ago - not sure what happened to it)
My sole goal with lifting is “aesthetics”, to achieve as close to a mens physique division, jeff seid, steve reeves, jon skywalker esque physique naturally. My lifts are pretty weak however, especially in comparison to other friends who lift. Moreover, my lifts have plateaued for a long time now. Despite bodybuilding being my goal, I figured would it be a good idea to do strong lifts 5x5 for a while to atleast get my stats to:
Whilst bulking to roughly 85kg.
My current training routine:
DAY 1: INTENSITY (Chest/ Back/ Tricep) low reps
DAY 2: VOLUME (SHOULDERS / LEGS / BICEPS) high reps (quads and calf)
DAY 3: VOLUME (CHEST / BACK / TRICEP / FOREARM) high reps
DAY 4: INTENSITY (SHOULDERS / LEGS / BICEPS) low reps
DAY 5: VOLUME (Chest/ Back/ Tricep) high reps
DAY 6: VOLUME (SHOULDERS / LEGS / BICEPS) high reps (hamstring and calf)
(bench 3x a week, squat once)
So what should I do? try stronglifts 5x5 or something else to get my strength up?
I need to gain strength as fast as possible.
