    Default Putting on strength and size

    I haven't been to the gym in about a month because I was admitted to the hospital around the beginning of July. I'm out now and fully healthy but I want to change up my routine. try something new. During my old routine I didn't really put on as much strength as I would've liked, let alone size, and I did it for a long time, which was a mistake. I really don't know what routine would have me putting on both size and strength.

    Where are your compound lifts at right now? Not really sure what to suggest without knowing where you are.

    Before I checked out, my bench was at 150, squat at 130, and deadlift I think was 70, if that helps.

    Any full body routine that has squats, deadlifts, pressing, and rowing will do well. I'm really digging the stuff from the Massive Iron book right now. Power Muscle Burn is a great program, but I would wait until your squat/bench/deadlift are at least 315/225/405 before jumping on that one.

    I personally train for powerlifting using both strength and hypertrophy training and I have found Jonnie Candito's linear program incredibly useful. Its free, though donations are welcomed, is very highly respected in the youtube powerlifting community and is very fun as it allows for a lot of customisation. I highly recommend checking it out, it did wonders for me. I'm currently hoping to compete in powerlifting in 2015, and my total is only 15kg off the total required to qualify for the raw nationals in my age and weight category
