@cryptonite why are you saying he doesn’t know how to train? His instagram pictures would suggest otherwise. He’s pretty clearly been lifting for awhile, he’s not small. And at no point did he suggest otherwise. He was trying to decide between a strength-oriented template and a more standard bodybuilding template. He did not say ‘hey guys, I don’t know how to lift weights, can someone tell me how to do that so I can also do steroids? lolololol’
OP, I’m honestly baffled by the responses you’ve gotten here. You’re 35 years old, you look like you lift, and you’ve decided to use gear. I see nothing wrong with that. Don’t listen to cryptonite, ever. He constantly spews nonsense and shitty advice. I’d block him if I didn’t feel that he needed to be corrected so often.
Anyway, I think your question has an easy answer. You want to be a bodybuilder, so train like a bodybuilder. You CAN achieve great results using a strength-based template. I’m a competitive strongman, really train very little for hypertrophy specifically, and I look pretty good. BUT I’m also sort of an anomaly in that regard. Most strongmen competitiors do not look like me. And you’ve built up a reasonable base to be able to focus primarily on a bodybuilding style template. I don’t have a particular template to suggest, but Yogi’s are good. Anything that has you working in higher rep ranges (think 8+) consistently should work.
