    Hi, I’m Agostino

    My main goal is to gain as much strenght as possibile without bulking (I’ve still got a moderatly muscular physique and I don’t want to add other muscles).

    I like Al’s 5×5 challange and my answers are:

    Is it good for strenght or a 3 reps x 5 to 8 sets (same exercises) is more appropriate?

    What are the general adjustments to reach my goal?

    Thanks 🙂

    Sorry for my english



    I was using this workout for pure strength while losing weight. I experimented with doing full body 3 times a week but I found doing 3 circuits 5-6 times a week more efficient for me. I didn’t do it in the style of a circuit though. Left long rests between sets so I could stay fresh and concentrated on my form and trying to grip the bar or floor as hard as I could. All about finding out which works best for you. Have a little experiment.
