    Ohh I see. Brilliant. I was looking forward to doing pb2, but I think I’ll do strength 1 and save pb2 for later heh.

    thanks again

    Thanks for clearing things up

    *not that you had recommended it in lieu of calorie restriction (diet), but as a compliment to it, where the extra volume from the powerbuilding templates make them good ones to do when trying to lose weight. Sorry if I’m totally making this up, I could have sworn I’ve heard you say that on a live stream

    Yes. The programming determines the outcomes you're likely to get, whereas the diet determines what the weight and body composition do.

    I can't really predict how you're going to do on any particular training program, but if you're wanting to prioritize strength improvements...I think the strength-focused templates are a better choice than the powerbuilding ones.

    Oh ok thanks!
    You know, after thinking about it more, I wonder if I’m actually making the best choice by going to pb2 in the first place (I haven’t actually started pb2 yet, just thinking ahead after finishing pb1, really enjoyed it!)

    I did pb1 in a calorie deficit to lose inches off my waist, and have maybe 1-3 left before I’m happy (losing about 2 lbs per week). I had thought to move to pb2 since I still have some more weight to lose, but is that what you would recommend over moving to strength 1? Eventually I’d like to primarily focus on strength and slowly gain weight.

    thanks again for your time

    It's more about personal preference as far as how often you want to train and how much volume you need. If you got good results on PB 2, I'd default to Strength II.

    Would it be better to move to strength 1 or strength 2 after powerbuilding 2? Wasn’t sure just because of the 3 day vs 4 day training frequency.

    thanks!
Working...
