First off, I have no idea where else to pose this question. I am currently in the “off season” for rugby, and I do not know which program, rep scheme, whatever to do. I will be doing some strongman training on the weekends (I did some before rugby started), and I expect this to help out with rugby.
However, I do not know which program or just general scheme I should follow. I am looking to increase athleticism and size during this off season. I would like to get stronger and more powerful and over all bigger.
So I guess my question is, what programs/schemes would you suggest? I have done Wendler’s 5/3/1 before, but I did not enjoy it. It is a good program for overall strength gain, but I just felt something was lacking (although it is a really good program when I am in-season).
Any suggestions you guys have? By the way, I will be doing sprinting and conditioning during the week as well.
