As a young person who is going to have practically unlimited free time this summer I am interested in what all the veterans would advise someone to do in a situation like mine who wanted to get as big and strong as quickly as possible. I will have all the time in the world to train, plenty of food to eat as frequently as needed, and little to no other real commitments.
Nutrionally, I plan to eat at least 500 calories above maintenance, take Thibaudeau advised amounts of BCAAï¿½??s (40-50 grams daily). I also am considering trying some beta alanine, while of course relying on the basic supplements like creatine, fish oil and protein powders.
So, in everyoneï¿½??s opinion, what is the best approach?
High frequency program such as Waterburyï¿½??s http://www.T-Nation.com/findArticle.do?article=06-017-training
Twice daily training like this http://www.T-Nation.com/readArticle.do?id=1600922
Super intense failure training like Poliquinï¿½??s super accumulation program http://www.T-Nation.com/readArticle.do?id=1605986 (High Frequency, Twice daily training AND failure training)
Very high volume programs like Arnold Schwarzenegger writes about in his encyclopedia of bodybuilding
Something I totally forgot?
Also, here is some more information about me specifically. I would currently consider myself an ï¿½??intermediateï¿½??. I began at 5ï¿½??10ï¿½?? and 150 lbs and over the course of around 1.5 years I have bulked up to 195 lbs. My current lifting numbers are as follows:
315 Wide Stance Squat
255 Medium Stance Squat ATG
225 lb Bench Press
155x2 Overhead Press
225 lb Power Clean
225 lb Push Press
BW+50 lbs Chinup
So what is my best course of action for the summer? Of course there is the possibility that as an intermediate it is just best to stick to the good old basics like a 3 day per week full body training or a 2 day split like WSFSB. If this is the case please smack me on the head and tell me to save all of these advanced programs for 5 years later when I will actually need them. I am very interested in everyoneï¿½??s input, and if anyone has tried any of these approaches a summary of your results would be very helpful.
