Pure Strength Program?

I’m currently starting a size program and intend to use it for 4-6 weeks or for how ever long it produces results. Then I want to go for pure raw strength!!! Anyone have any suggestions for a program to use? Thanks!

up the weights & sets, lower the reps

maximum strength

You’re 165lbs and have been doing this for about a year.

What you should be doing is developing both size AND strength at this point. You do this by using predominantly big lifts in an organized fashion, keeping a log, and making sure to progress regularly (like, each week) by adding weight, sets, or reps.

A good template to start you off with is called ‘Starting Strength’, unless you’ve already done it. One of the most-baddest-assed dudes on this forum put together a neat thread in homage to it. Look it up under ‘Starting Strength: The Guide’.

Thanks for the advice. I’ll do it.

It’s comments like this which make me smile.
