    You ask a very broad question about a very specific goal. The best approach any way will be to just get stronger and eat lean but high protein foods. Follow a good novice program, calculate your...

    Do you have vids for examples of the different forms?

    That routine isn't terrible, but it's not ideal. You could pick one from the stickies in this forum and have better results.

    You shouldn't take off any weight if you're going to run F5 UL. Only take off weight if you run a higher volume program like Viking's. You've still got a lot of room for growth on novice programs if...
