No one ever went pro because they had good conditioning.....so pick what skill set you want to master and go after it first....and whatever you decide....make your decision final, unplug the computer and then come back in 12 weeks and let us know how great you have progressed.

Most people ask the same questions year after year and never make any progress....because they wander all over the place. Don't be that person.

Well, a little update..

It's been 6 weeks and I am up to 191lbs. from 170. My squat (3x5) has gone from 170 to 225 and I have been having success in the other lifts as well. However, I am having trouble keeping my chest up during the ascent and tent to sort of collapse forward once I initiate hip drive.

Not really sure where I want to go from here. I have added a lot of mass for sure but it looks pretty flabby to me. We will see. I am considering transitioning in to Crossfit Strength Bias and cleaning up the diet to paleo.

Any intermediate program is good like Bill Starr's 5x5. Honestly, you can probably milk linear gains more.

Post up a vid if you need cues or find a good coach.

CFSB is ok...... if that's your goal. Aka to do CF.
