Alright guys, so after a little bit of debate in a thread I posted in the bodybuilding subforum, I have decided to start a thread to track my progress, and for others to offer advice.
For background, I have been wrestling my entire life, so my lifting has been focused on purely adding strength and not size. I have head to cut weight and stay small and always train for purely strength gains. To date, I have a 195 bench, 315 squats, and 365 deadlifts. I am 5’6", 150 pounds and 19 years old, with around 14-15% bf (that’s a guess).
For training I have basically run linear progression programs up to this point, getting my lifts to where they are.
It has been advised to me to start split training, and I have decided to design my program based on the Clay Hyght article on T-nation, about a bodybuilding program template.
For my nutrition, @BrickHead suggested I read CT’s nutrition for newbs articles which I did, he then recommended I eat at maintenance cals and see what happens, so that is what I will do. For me, it breaks down to 2315 calories, 191g of protein, 264g of carbs and 55g of fat (based on CT’s macro recommendations.)
I will upload pictures in a separate post.
Any other info/critiques/input or questions are greatly welcomed!!
