Is it a good Idea to deweight between reps of deadlifts, powercleans and hack squats? Im starting WBB routine.
And would you guys recommend the wannabebig routine, baby got back, or starting strength for the goal of hypertrophy?
what do you mean deweight?
I think this is possibly the all-time best response on WBB. - Jorge Sanchez

"Now we're finally getting to the chicken or the egg question," I grinned. "Did I eat all that food because my size gives me more of an appetite, or did I get to be this big because I've been forcing myself to eat like this for years?"

Fully deweight after each rep.
You need to eat. That, in conjunction with any of those routines, will induce hypertrophy.
When you guys say eat to gain weight, do you mean to gain fat? Because if I were to start eating 4k or 5k calories a day, i think I would just throw on 5 lbs of fat a week, no matter how much I lifted. Not to mention double my $60 a week i spend on food.
You will gain some fat while you gain weight, but if you do it right the amount of fat you gain can be kept to a minimum.
Track your calories at www.fitday.com. Monitor your weight and adjust your calories based on weight gain. If you are gaining weight to quickly/feel like you are gaining too much fat, dial back the calories a bit. If you are not gaining weight or not gaining weight fast enough, increase your calories. Just keep in mind, faster weight gain is usually accompanied by more fat gain.
By the way, by deweighting i mean resting the bar back on the ground between each rep, and then lifting it off again.
What aboot cardio?
Cardio is good for your heart. Just remember, any calories you burn while doing cardio will have to be made up for if you want to gain weight.
Im starting SS routine tomorrow. I attached a "before" picture. We'll see how I look in 3 months.
Good base. Make sure to drink your milk.
