    Doesn't matter to me. They are different, but similar styles overall.

    Would you reccomend the 1st block of 12 week strength 2.0 or powerlifting II? Or does it not matter?

    I never really took arm/chest measurments but I did weigh myself everyday. I went from 174.0 to 176.8 during the first 5 weeks then cut back down to 174 during the last 3 that i was able to run before the gyms closed. My waist started and ended at 34" Should i start measuring the rest of my body?
    I think a more dedicated strength block than PB II would be in order. You don't need access to bands, chains, or a slingshot to get a lot out of the powerlifting tempates.

    I think having arm and leg girth measurements would be a good idea for gauging hypertrophy response: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhanes.../manual_an.pdf

    Arsh,

    If you wanted to really prioritize hypertrophy then I'd think about something like hyper II > 1 block of a strength program > bodybuilding.

    I think more training volume has a higher likelihood of producing more fitness adaptations, in general. That said, if you're not ready for it- it may be detrimental until you eventually adapt. I'm not sure I can tell much based on your e1RMs. How have your body measurements changed?

    Awesome! After that do you think the upcoming Bodybuilding template would be a good choice? I have the money to spend​​

    One other question, am I reducing progress by using the II templates rather than the I? Or will the added volume only help me. I felt like I recovered just fine on PB II, my upper body was never sore, but my legs always were! (I don't think there is any way around that with the way the days are set up though!)

    Im asking because my E1RMs were relatively stagnant during PB II, which seems worrying.

    Again, thanks for always helping me out!

    I would do the PB II template from the beginning since you already have it and it suits your goals nicely

    Be well!

    Hey guys,

    A little info:
    Male, Just turned 17 with a little over a year of consistent barbell training. Currently running the At- home template. Before that I was running powerbuilding II, but had to stop on week 8 due to gyms closing. By the time gyms reopen, I should be all done with my cut and ready to hop on a lean surplus, looking mainly to build muscle and also strength (but not competing so just general strength). My main goal is to gain lean muscle and look better, so I am thinking of one of the hypertrophy templates.

    I am able (and enjoy) to train 4x a week, but am willing to go down to a 3-day program if you feel the dose is more appropriate. So what template would you reccomend after this covid shit clears up?
Working...
