After spending a significant amount of time on T-Nation the past few weeks I've come to the conclusion to orientate myself on CT's "How to Design a Damn Good Program" (because I always feel the need to adjust programs to my preferences) and " War Room Strategies to Maximize Fat Loss" (because I still have some excess body fat).
Since both articles are a few years old, I wanted to ask if there are newer resources I should consider or if the principles still stand?
I've read newer stuff like "6 weeks to Superhero" but I don't feel comfortable with snatches and Olympic lifts (I consider hiring a trainer in the future to teach me, but not in the near term).
bit about me: I'm 31 years old and was always sporty and fat. I've done some weightlifting when I was younger but in hindsight it was very unstructured. I've recently lost quite a bit of weight by fixing my nutrition and focusing on bodyweight exercises, some dumbbell work and running. Signed up for a proper gym now and want to focus on weight loss for another 2-3 months until my abs become visible before shifting to gaining size.
As such the "war room" article appealed to me strongly but I want to make sure I'm not missing on latest research when embarking on it.
Many thanks in advance!
