I've been doing starting strength for just over 4 months and I think I am finally coming to the end of the road as far as my gains this time around. I ended up adding ~525lb to my lifts and added 27lb of weight (~19 muscle based on body fat change). I have been a hard gainer in the past on other programs so I can't complain about the results.
Based on the past I will be stalling here shortly as I just broke through my previous stall. I was thinking of continuing for a little while but dropping bench and squats which I have stalled on twice before and adding in curls, pullups and maybe some ab exercises. The reason for this is that I don't think over the holiday's when I have family in town and we are eating lots of food is a good time to start a CUT routine and diet. Is this a good plan or should I do something else during this time of transition?
I think my next program is going to be Waterbury Summer Project, sounds like a good routine.
