Ok, even though I'm aiming more for strength gains than size I don't plan on ever entering a power lifting meet so I'll post this here as I do plan on gaining size (duh).
My goal is for the end of the summer, (end of OCT) Gain 20lbs of muscle, I'm starting at 195-200, I would like to see what 220 feels like. My lifting goals are Bench 250 ( I know weak but I have long arms and my bench has always sucked. Squat 350 and dead 450. Those will actually be the easy ones, I may adjust them up if I get close to them quickly.
I'll be doing a 5 week split. First 3 weeks will be progressive PL style. Basically following a 5,3,1 4th week I'll veer off course and do volume BB style.
start with say 8 reps on a movement and then drop 15 lbs and with very short rest get another 8 and just keep dropping the weight and gunning for 8 reps till I'm lifting air for 8 reps. Then I'll fully rest and do a different movement. Not sure how I'm going to structure it yet.
5th week will be a rest week where I just do like 50% on the PL lifts and maybe some cardio/plyo work, and mobility drills. Basically whatever I feel like while keeping it very light/easy.
Well that's the gist of it, I haven't really lifted consistently for a while so i'm sure there will be newbie gains abound no matter what I do.
