  • Every Damn Day (WS4SB)

    Stats:
    Age: 20
    Weight: 150lbs
    Height: 68in.

    PRs
    Bench 180lbs
    Squat 290lbs
    Deadlifts 345lbs

    Note: Don't think i could necessarily hit those right now as these are from a few months ago.

    I'm looking to gain some strength and maybe a little size on this program, but mostly i'm just looking to get stronger. I have done the routine before and was a fan of it. I had good gains before, but didn't really stick with it for one reason or another.

    Gaining size right probably isn't all that feasible given my activity level (1-2 hours of tennis a day), but I'm not all that concerned with putting on weight at this point. I'd be happy just to improve my big three lifts and stay at my current weight.

    I'll post more about diet and the numbers from my first two workouts when I get back from work

    Good Luck, but at your size and level, you might want to try out a 5x5 program first.

          I don't really track calories but my diet generally looks something like this

          Meal 1:
          3 whole eggs (don't usually eat anything else here because I usually train soon after breakfast)

          Pre-workout:
          200 mg Caffeine
          5g Creatine
          1 Scoop Cytosport 100% Whey (80% concentrate, 20% isolate, 5g BCAAs, 27g protein)

          Post-Workout
          2 Scoops Cytosport
          1/3 Cup FF or 2% milk (i need a little milk when i use two scoops, with only water it just gets too nasty)

          Meal 3
          1 Can Tuna
          Carrots/Green vegetable

          Meal 4
          1 Medium Chicken Breast
          Carrots/Green Vegetable

          Meal 5
          Usually 1/2lb of some type of red meat, often hamburger
          1 cup of some type of complex carb (brown rice, whole wheat pasta, oats etc.)

          Meal 6
          either another 1 scoop protein shake
          or another can of tuna

              I like WS4SB because while the workload might be a little more in terms of sets and days it is less in terms of multiple heavy sets, which I think would make the day after lifting impossible for tennis. This way i think I can still lift and progress, while being able to keep up practicing. The point of WS4SB is, after all, geared more towards athletes than just raw strength and size. I do appreciate the suggestion though.

                  He might progress faster with higher frequency on the big 3.

                  But whatever makes one happy, I like the template.
                  Overtraining should be one of the lowest concerns. You should focus on optimal training.

                    Good luck with your goals man.
                    …Time is so precious….and you need to ask yourself, what are you going to do today but more importantly, you need to ask yourself – how are you going to do it?

                      Well someone already answered for me, I just think if you want to get stronger 5x5 is the way to go in the beginning. But if he likes WS4SB then go for it.
                      I wish him Luck to reach his training goals.
