I’m looking to choose a new program for when I go back to school in September, with my goal being both size and strength gains. Specifically, I would like to add 15-20 pounds of muscle mass while increasing functional strength and general conditioning (I want to actually be strong/in shape, not just look strong).
I recently read Built for Show, Huge in a Hurry and Westside for Skinny Bastards. Which program will help me the most, or is there another program I should consider?
Current Bodyweight: 178 lbs @ 8%
Goal Bodyweight: 190 lbs @ 6%
Max Bench: 220 lbs
Max Squat: 295 lbs
Max Deadlift: 295 lbs
I’ve been training for about two years, but only started training for hypertrophy/size a year ago (before I was sprint kayaking, most workouts were not geared towards limit strength and/or size gains).
Thanks in advance for advice you guys can offer.
