    Alright, So I'm sitting at 170lbs, and looking to bulk to ~200lbs for career goals. My workout routine is similar to Pur's... but i was recently told to "get rid of all the fluff" (EG wrist curls, arms day, leg curls etc) and focus on the compound lifts to get big.

    Now... that does make sense to me, I'm not going to be gaining 10lbs on my wrist doing wrist curls, rather I could be saving my grip strength and doing another set of DL's 48hours later.

    So now that everything I thought I knew about bodybuilding is out the window... where do I go.

    I was thinking Bill Starr routine:
    (the weights used are only examples)
    Monday, heavy day:
    squat: 5 x 135, 5 x 165, 5 x 185, 5 x 205, 5 x 225
    bench press: 5 x 135, 5 x 155, 5 x 175, 5 x 190, 5 x 200
    power clean: 5 x 115, 5 x 135, 5 x 145, 5 x 155, 5 x 165
    Wednesday, light day:
    squat: 5 x 135, 5 x 150, 5 x 160, 5 x 170, 5 x 180
    bench press: 5 x 135, 5 x 135, 5 x 145, 5 x 155, 5 x 160
    power clean: 5 x 115, 5 x 115, 5 x 115, 5 x 125, 5 x 135
    Friday, medium day:
    squat: 5 x 135, 5 x 155, 5 x 175, 5 x 190, 5 x 205
    bench press: 5 x 135, 5 x 150, 5 x 160, 5 x 170, 5 x 180
    power clean: 5 x 115, 5 x 125, 5 x 135, 5 x 145, 5 x 150


    But I was told to try this routine for 90 days

    Mon
    Squats x5
    Deads x5
    Flt bench x5
    Cleans x4
    Wed
    Squats x5
    Deads x5
    Incline bench x5
    Cleans x4
    Fri
    Squats x5
    Deads x5
    Flt bench x5
    Cleans x4

    Go heavy everyday... eat like michael phelps, sleep like sleeping beauty

    Can I get some other peoples thoughts?

    BACKGROUND INFO:

    Current Stats: 170lbs ish, 6'0, 19 years old
    Started: 130lbs, 6'0, 16 years old (started going more serious just last year, where most of my gains are from)
    Goal: Bulk to 200+lbs

    Lifts are lacking... that have doubled/trippled since i started, but that isnt saying much. These are recent Max's
    Bench: 175 x1
    Dead: 205 x 2
    Squat: 135 x1 ATG (previously was doing those tyical partial squats, using 180-200lbs but only squating down couple inches... working on that now)

    who told you that?


    In my personal experince when I added back in some of the BB/fluf/bs stuff I noticed a drastic change in my physique (I got bigger) and I continued to get stronger.

    Well dude, pur's routine and others like it is great for what it does, which is, makes your body look great. If that's what you want, why would you do a routine geared more towards athletic performance, and vice versa?

    ... Hawt... slightly different then the bill starr I seen. It still gives a bit of focus on arms, with 2 days of rest before your heavy day on Monday, which shouldn't hurt your maxxes at all. I think this is the one I am going to try... thanks man.
