I have been doing Starting Strength for the last 2 plus years On and Off along with some assistance work. I have tried a few other programs with lesser success and to be honest with lesser interest.
The result of this kind of training is that I look big but I don’t look like a BB. Now I want to try some BB programs to change my look. I tried PHAT in the last 2 months but I felt as if I was losing strength on that program. What kind of a routine would you suggest for a BB kinda program which can keep strength intact(if not increase it).
Also I would want to know how can I achieve Striations on my chest and shoulder muscles. Like I already mentioned I have enough size but Dips/Over Head Press and BP aren’t going to get it.
There are NO exercises that will give you striations, NONE regardless of what “bros” will say on the internet or in the gym. It’s all about getting SUPER lean. If you “look big” but do not have striations, then you simply have too much fat covering your muscles. And to be honest most people need to be REALLY lean to have striations, a real sub-8% at least.
I’m the wrong guy to ask about a bodybuilding program, my philosophy is much closer to starting strength/Wendler or powerlifting than to bodybuilding[/quote]
Thanks CT !! I know well about you
Ok, what would be a High Frequency Strength training program which you would suggest which is light on the nervous system. I can train frequently but the difficult part is to manage nutrition because I travel a lot for work.
