First of all, I wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed browsing this site. I’ve killed many hours here the last few days.
Now, a bit about me. I don’t know how to classify myself, exactly. I lifted my first weights around nine years ago (age 19 or so). At that time, I was around 6’1, 145 lbs. When I say I was weak, I mean I could barely bench the bar. Fast-forward to modern times. I’ve lifted off-and-on since then. I’ve never truly dedicated myself to it until now (presently 6’1, 177).
Thing is, I started off so far behind the curve that even now, after tripling and quadrupling many of my lifts, I’m still weaker than probably 90-95% of the people on here. I’ve been doing the same kinds of workouts all this time. I feel somewhat discouraged. At present, I’m doing a push/pull/legs split 5 or 6 days per week (started it in September). My lifts are still going up little by little, and the size is coming on very slowly (which is to be expected, I suppose; building muscle ain’t easy).
This is all to say: I’m bored with my routine. At the same time, I’m still gaining from it – albeit very slowly. Should I switch away from something I’m still benefitting from? One routine I’ve looked at is Chad Waterbury’s 30 Day program. It’s something I could do with the equipment here in my apartment. Would this be wasted on me? Is there something better out there? Should I just stick with push/pull/legs?
I’m in this for the long haul. That said, I’m in a wedding in April. I’d love to accomplish whatever I’m capable of accomplishing between now and then (and I’m not expecting miracles, just hopefully some improvement).
Now, I’ll shut up and listen to the experts. Thanks in advance!
