    routine to get stronger/bigger

    im 20 years old 6 ft 1 245 lbs (was 260 about 2 and half months ago) i dont seem to be making alot of progress in strength maybe its because i have days i work certain body parts but im always changing reps and exercises for each body part....max on bench is 315 deads 415 and squat at 300 (just got back into doing them) so who has any ideas as far as a routine??

    why the weight loss?

    Just wondering why you lost the weight........low reps, heavy weights, calorie intake has always been my recipe. I never go over 8 reps,but use a weight that only allows me 4-6 reps usually if I'm trying to get bigger and stronger. Just my opinion.
    By the way, I would stick to the big compound movements as well.

    Bulking up and then cutting down is effective for some people logo, but it doesn't sound like you needed to bulk up. Keep eating clean and training hard, keep the calories up or you are definitely going to lose strength, which I personally think is impossible not to do when you lose weight. The strongest I have ever been is when I was carrying some body fat. "It is what it is" as they say. If you keep eating well, keep the calories up and train smart(see Zar's routine) your weight will settle in at a fairly steady number, then you can start worrying about bulking up if you don't have the size/strength you want at that point. Hope this makes sense. Having said that, that is just my humble opinion. Be patient.

    If you want to get stronger you need to follow a program designed for that. bodybuilding splits will not address the strength goal.

    i believe 3 full body training day a week is great for building strength and size. Hammering the whole body multiple times a week works.
