SS testimonial here, lol. I gained 16lbs (with no noticeable change in body fat)in 2 1/2 months on this method, from 133 to 149. Moved my bench from 120 up to 175, Squat 145 to 255, Powercleans 80 to 145, Military Press from 70 to 110, Deadlift from 135 to 235. And in terms of muscular size, there is a significant difference.
So In terms of gaining strength this program has worked great for me.
However, I feel like I need to mix it up, over the last 2-3 weeks my weight has not changed at all and my bench press and military press growth have significantly slowed. (It took me 2 1/2 weeks to go up from 100 to 110 mil press and from 165 to 175 has taken nearly as long) Additionally I feel like my powercleans are close to slowing but have not yet stopped. (note, my squats and dead lifts continue grow at 20-30lbs a week and no, I don't expect those results on my upper body)
So my question, Do I need a new program? Do I need to take a break and reset at a lower weight and start building again? Could the slowing of my gains in body weight and in exercises be because I'm not eating enough?
Thanks for the help. I've been on here for a few months now and all the advice I've gotten so far has worked great and for the first time in my life I have made a significant change to what my genetics dictated as my body's shape. I want to do more!!! :-)
