Hi, i am beginning to bulk again and i was deciding between two programs.
Bill Starr 5x5 Beginner or intermediate workout
Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength workout
Im wondering which is the better one to do for me (im 200 lbs, 16 years old, max set of 5 rep bench is 185, and max set of 5 rep for squat is 230). My goal is to basically get as strong as i possibly can in a 6-8 months period so then i work on plyometrics and jumping after (im a basketball player)
Also, i was wondering for the diet, should i follow "Getting big without getting fat" bulk sequence, or is there a prescribed one for either of these workouts that i plan on doing?
