hey, guys my main interests are to be a bodybuilder but since im still for the most part a beginner i figured i should do some strength training to get strong.
so i started doing West side for skinny bastards(the latest version) now its kind of hard to measure my progress on the lower body lifts since i started doing box squats, but then i had an imbalance between my two legs causing my form to fuck up, so last week i ditched the squats and went to deadlifts. But my bench which ive been doing all along seems to rise very slowly. This was my first time doing “heavy” lifts so i was hoping for some great gains, but since i started i’ve only gotten a small amount stronger. For example the first time i did a max bench i did 175 for 2 reps, tonite im up to about a 4 rep max at the same weight. and its about 4 or 5 weeks that ive been on this program(ill check my log to confirm how many weeks ive done) anyways i was hoping to only do this program for 8 or 10 weeks, but i really wanted it to take my bench up 200 at least. Anyways probably your guys initial respone would be to question my nutrition, but to be honest its pretty good, i take in about 3000 plus cals on a work out day, drink surge, carb up 90 mins after a workout. i also always try to get 8 hours sleep a night as well. So whats the deal here? i thought for sure this program would yeild better gains then this? can anyone help me out?
