What Should I Do Now?

Hello guys,

I’ve been lifting for about one year now, started with a PPLx2 (Reddit PPL) for 6 months followed by 6 months of 5/3/1 BBB.
During quarantaine (that lasted 2months here in France) I was doing mainly weighted bodyweight stuff in order to maintain in terms of strength and mass.

Now that the quarantaine is over I want to start training again. I bought a small homegym (barbell, Dumbbell, bench and a rack) as it is more convenient for me now.

My main issue is that I don’t know what program to choose now. I pursue an hypertrophy goal only and can train almost everyday if needed.
I was thinking about going for the Best Damn Workout for Natural Lifters but found mixed opinion online.

What would you suggest me? I now that adherence being very important I should choose a program that I like but nothing really appeal to me.

Anyway thanks for your help on this one :slight_smile:

Jon Andersen’s Deep Water program.

So, only free weights no machines?

I got my eyes on this one when searching for the program on liftvault.

It looks really good but a bit similar to Reddit PPL but with less volume.
I was looking to shake things up a little bit and doing something so much similar to what I was doing is not really appealing right now. But this will totally be my next routine!

Ok perfect, then BDWR it is then :slight_smile:

It is in no way similar. Actually look at the program rather than liftvault.


I don’t know what that is.

I downloaded the ebook from his website and it is actually really different.
The 10x10 on squats looked so painful that I immediately knew that was what I wanted to run.

Thanks for your help man!


Hell yeah dude. That book is a great read. Give it a go and give it hell. Start a log here: a lot of folks have run that program.
