Okay so I know there’s no perfect programs, but you can make a program that is almost perfect for your needs. I’m 160lbs currently. I’m 15 years of age, turning 16 in 2 months. I wanna get big, I wanna be up around 185lbs. Yes I must EAT EAT EAT. I’m doing that, and getting almost 4,000 calories in a day. I eat fish, steak, lean meats, porkchops, potatoes, yams, rice, pasta, chicken, ALL types of veegetables (3 times daily) and assorted fruits (3 times daily). Milk, cottage cheese. The works. Food is not a problem. I know I have to eat tons and that’s EXACTLY what I am doing. I’m getting around 1.4g of protein per body of bodyweight now.
ANYWAYS I’m on CW’s The Waterbury Method and will see how that goes. WHAT I NEED HELP WITH IS: I’m really into MMA and am laying off for a bit from boxing and all. Now since I wanna get bigger and stronger (although my strength levels are descent for my age and weight) getting stronger is always better. The 185lbs I wanna get up to, I want it to all be functional.
So right now I’m doing Waterbury’s Method for the 4 weeks (in the second week now) and 2 days during the week I’m doing HARD G.P.P. work with Dumbells (snatches, cleans etc.) sledgehammer training, bodyweight circuits, rock lifting, and heavy sand bags. I’m doing the GPP cause I don’t wanna lose my conditioning cause I’ve got pretty good cardio capacity. After the Watebury Method I wanna do westside but I don’t know if that will help THAT much with size gains, but anything I gain in size I want in strength also. As big as I get, I want the strength to match that size. I know I have to keep relative strength in mind here, cause that’s what MMA is about also.
I’ve got pretty good relative strength now and wanna keep my relative strength levels high even with the increased bodyweight. I know everoyne is going to say “Don’t worry about gaining fat” Yes I’m not worrying about that, sure I’ve got a low BF right now and can say that I am ripped (not bragging) I’m not a skinny-guy with abs, I have pretty good mass for 160lbs and most people say I look around 170lbs. With that, I don’t want to be 185lbs and gain a ton of fat. An increase of 15lbs of fat isn’t going to help me AT ALL. So keeping the fat minimum, and gaining good size (185lbs) along with good strength would be great (functional hypetrophy)
So if anyone good help me with deciding on a program that will help with developing functional hypertropy and all while gaining up to 185lbs would be much appreciated. Oh and I also like to do O-lifts, and gymnast type stuff.
Sorry this post is so long.
