looking for a good two month program

hey guys

this is kinda long but here’s the scoop…I just joined a new band and I am leaving for tour June 25th.

I have that pretty much worked out…I figure I can do sit ups - maybe a little (gasp!) running - I am also bringing a bar (2.5" from brute strength) and two 20kg bumper plates with me. So if you see a guy with a bald head in a parking lot next to a club doing cleans and pressing…that will be me.

Anyway I have two months to look damn good so I can play with my shirt off. What program do you guys suggest? or should I just continue but add in HIIT? I have been making GREAT success with this in terms of gaining muscle and leaning out. Maybe I should try adding in some Hot-Rox? I really don’t want to cut calories at this point though. Just for the fact my strength levels and my muscle gains will suffer.

This my log from the past week:

You should wear a shirt like that guy in School of Rock, cause that would be soooooo sexy!
