6'7 and working out.

  1. 6'7 and working out.

    As you can tell I'm a skinny bastard, 6'7 at only 194lbs. Past month I've been doing Stronglifts 5x5 and put on 8lbs. I also cut out almost ALL my cardio, besides playing some pickup games of basketball a day or two a week.

    How long would you consider using this workout? Or should I change up my routine?

  2. Keep at it until you plateau, then switch up to something different, with a different rep range and such.

    I did the advanced 5x5 a couple times, then after switch to a push/pull/legs doing 3 sets, 8-10 reps, and it works well for me.

    I work out at home but if I had a real gym close by I would be all over a Dogg Crapp routine myself.

    But usually ~8 weeks is long enough for one routine.
    True story:

    I give a f**K!!

  3. I am the same height as you as used to be as around as skinny as you and I didn't start putting on solid weight until I stopped basketball altogether. Just some food for thought.

    I'm the same height, started out at 158lbs and am now 250+lbs. I dont do any cardio.. to me cardio = the devil because my metabolism is so high. I stick to a varied routine, never hitting the same workout twice, this has kept me growing just fine over the years. And as always, go heavy.

  5. 8lbs in a month is pretty good natty (assuming?) progress! It falls under, "if it aint broke don't fix it". As previously mentioned, if you hit a plateau or just get bored with the same routine, then switch it up.
