What do you do in-season? Some kind of sport? I’m going to guess you’re not a competitive bodybuilder.
What’s your current bodyweight and general fat level (very lean with abs, kinda fat, very fat, etc.)?
And, for perspective, what are your best numbers on the big basic lifts?
Dumbbell swings, all sorts of deadlift variations, and lunges should be plenty for your hamstrings, in addition to the shitty machine curl. Hammer Strength machines are nice, but they’re basically machine versions of rows, pulldowns, and various dumbbell presses. Not a big deal at all if you don’t have them.[/quote]
No bro, with in-season its kinda beach look prepare. Yeah im not competitive bodybuilder, i just love this lifestyle. I’m ~75kg and kinda fat. My height is ~170cm. Numbers on big lifts (BP,SQ,DL,OHP) don’t know exactly but they are all around 40-50kg.
I just really want to follow those pure bodybuilding programs (you know, looking, aesthetics… ) don’t want of those pure Powerlifting or mix of PL and BB. Let’s say for example if i do eight months of bulking… first four months i want to do pure BB/hypertrophy training routine and the second one let’s say some kind of PHAT training style (mix of BB and Power).
Apart from all the good advice already given in your position I would focus first on getting a bunch stronger. I don’t mean training like a powerlifter but at least get your squat and DL up by 75 kg to start and your bench by 40 kg. That’s still pretty low for your size, but it’ll put you in a much better position to use higher weights for your training.
Hell, maybe I’m on the wrong track but I honestly can’t see how getting stronger will hurt your chances of achieving your goals at this stage, and conversely I can’t see you finding it easy to get much bigger without first getting stronger.
