Been doing some research, trying to decide which program I should run. My goals are:
-Get stronger, mainly my squat, deadlift, press and bench press
-Gain mass. Currently 170lbs, looking to add 15-20lbs this year.
-Maintain a solid level of conditioning. This means that whatever program I run needs to leave a little room for conditioning (sprints 2x/week, sled pushes 2x/week)
A little background on my training:
-Been lifting seriously for about 8 months
-Did the first 6 weeks of Maximum Strength, had to cut it short because I travel a lot for work and didn’t have access to the equipment to accurately complete the program.
-The last 4 weeks I have been doing this program, http://www.scrawnytobrawny.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/bsb-training-program.pdf , have actually made some modest strength/size gains with it.
Overhead Press: 100x5 (definitely a weakness)
22 years old, 6’1", 170lbs, roughly 8% bodyfat (measured by a BioMeasure machine at gym)
I’ve looked into Westside for Skinny Bastards, 5/3/1, specifically Boring But Big, and a few other programs. I like basic templates, with focus on compound lifts, and I prefer to train 4-5 times a week. Whichever program I end up choosing, I plan on sticking with until I reach my goals. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone.
