What is the best pure strength program out there in your opinion (I dont mind mass at all but I want a program that dont waste time on hypertrophy)? I am 5’ 8", 158 lbs and have been lifting weights for 7.5 months. I currently do a bodyweight upper body day twice a week and a weights lower body day twice a week.
The lower body day is somewhat like a westside for skinny bastard program. One day I workup to a squat 3RM and the other I work up to a 5RM. I do max deads once in a while (6-8 weeks). And I also do assistance exercises on those two days (such as G/H raise, Romanian dead, grip work, full contact twist, etc).
My problem is that I really want to have a set program as I am a beginner. One thing though, I want to keep the bodyweight exercises. I’ve looked at Bill Starr and Westside but neither seems to like bodyweight exercises.
