Restarting after summer hiatus, which of these programs to use?

I can’t decide between the new Ripped, Rugged and Dense or the anti-bodybuilding hypertrophy program. Which would you say is best after a 3 month European vacation? I feel much weaker and skinnier.


Go with anti-bodybuilding without a doubt! Especially if you’ve been inactive, or even just not real consistent for a few months. Make sure to read up on some of CW’s principles and apply them as well and you’ll fill back out really well.

I dont go for RR&D, instead I use the original 5x5 idea of CT’s OVT, and gains have always been bigger.
