I am 180 pounds, 9% or thereabouts bodyfat.
Typical "hardgainer" i started working out about 20 years old at 150 pounds, now 24.
I know I havent eaten enough throughout those 4 years in order to gain consistantly, but I have sorted that out now.
I always feel I gain best when always pushing to lift heavier weights every workout (duh) - rather than feeling the 'pump' with higher reps and progressing less ofen. The only way I progress consistantly is if I use a program like 5x5. Squatting 3 times a week I feel is bound to help with gains.
I am just looking for anyones opinions/experiences with this program - possibly when at my level (probably intermediate..)
5x5 weights right now:
I work hard at split workouts but I feel like these workouts are much tougher - and that will hopefully yeild better results all else been equal (sleep, diet, pre/post workout nutrition)
