I just need some clarification to what I should do out of the best pre-made routines that I read of on this site
What classifies a beginner or a novice to weightlifting /bodybuilding?
Ive done some sort of weightlifting for the last few years, not very consistently but still did it, this year I went for a record 5 months without taking a break or missing a session and this is where I got the most strength gains ("obviously")
Right now im I have taken a week off for a big rest and to restart a new routine, Can I expect such gains from rippetoes routine,
Am I still a novice lifter or am I now a intermediate lifter that wont get the best gains from this routine?
Have a look at my journal to see what I have done to help , help me lol
