Strength Program


#1

Hey guys I've been lifting for 9 months following hypertrophy based programs and I've made some gains however now I reckon my strength is average at most, I also reckon that strength is the foundation for everything in the gym that's why I want to start a good novice/basic strength training program. Any suggestions?

Cheers.

Run 5/3/1. Just about any version is fine.


#3

Starting Strength is also good.


#4

The best novice strength program i’ve seen is Starting Strength

Which other ones have you seen to compare that to?


#6

The other ones i know of are Stronglifts, Greyskull, and 5/3/1 for beginners. And Starting strength usually produces the fastest increases in strength based off what i’ve seen.

How much of a beginner are you? Can you give us some numbers to work from?
