5×5 is a solid program. Just make sure you get adequate rest and nutrition and you should morph your physique.
Yeah I’m currently keeping an eye on my diet, I have just brought some whey protein powder, flaxseed seeds, sunflower seeds & oats to mix in my shakes etc.
It would seem you and I share a few thing’s in common, a love of drumming, beer and being 38.
Like Stormtrooper said, 5 x 5 is a solid program that’s been round for decades in various forms. I never realy started to make solid gains untill I pissed off the multiple set, high – volume type lifting and just hammered away the basic’s.
If you want a good read on this style of training, I recomend you grab a copy of this – it’s pretty much been my bible for the last couple of years.
How long you been playing ? I’ve been playing 19 years, I’m currently studying Jazz with an old legend from Glebe, Jack Savage 82 years young and the coolest cat I know. He’s from New York.
I have quickly browsed over that book you mentioned too. Can you elaborate on your training program ???
