    Default Considering Hopping Back on SS Linear Progression

    • wichita falls texas march seminar date

    Iíve been training consistently since January of 2019 , so itís been about 11 months. Iím 17 years old, 5í11Ē , 183 pounds and iíve come to a point in my training where I donít know where to go from here. I cannot decide if I have any more ďnewb gainsĒ I can squeeze out and if itís worth jumping on Linear Progression to do so.
    Squat 135 lbs ó> 275 lbs
    Bench 80 lbs ó> 150 lbs
    Deadlift 185 lbs ó> 320 lbs
    Press 60 lbs ó> 115 lbs
    I know my bench and press is pretty weak in comparison to my other lifts. Basically iím just asking is it still worth it to start linear progression from square 1 and work my way up?

    All your lifts are very low relative to your bodyweight. Stay on your LP, eat more, gain some weight, stop overthinking the process.

    YES! Run LP with fidelity. Don't try to increase the weight by to much each workout. Don't "Max" out for at least 10 weeks or more. Your 17! You can pretty much run LP with minor deviations until your 23-25. Eat more food and drink more milk.

    Don't "max out" at all, until you lift in a meet. Just do the program.

    The main reason my body weight is so high is because Iíve been bulking since January. I have went from 150 lbs to 183 lbs

    Hell yeah I will. Going to eat more cals a day. Do you think at the lifts I have now I can still maintain adding 5 lbs to the bar every single session on all three lifts?

    30 pounds in 11 months is not a lot, man. I've gained almost twice that in half the time. Granted, it's harder to gain fast when you're young a lot of the time. But there's plenty of resources out there on how to squeeze in more meals and more calories (particularly carbs) into those meals. Change your mindset to "eating is training".

    If your form is good and you are getting enough sleep and protein maybe. Remember if you can't hit all your reps drop the weight the next time 5lbs or so and try to continue the LP at the new weight. Think 2 steps forward one back.
