Hey mate, you're making great progress on this program! I think it's the best one I've tried so far.

Yeah dude. Those "goals for next year" in your signature, you're pretty muched passed them right? At least the bench and deadlift 1RM must be higher...
A kind of discoquestion but do you build a lot of muscle on this program or is it more gains on the strength side?

i think you're right about the goals. although i'm not sure about the bench since i'm pretty weak at the 1RM area there.
i made some good progress in muscle growth, too. the first time ever i could watch my chest, shoulders and triceps grow. but it's not a bodybuilding program and so the main gains are on the strength side.

Okay. I don't think I could do squatting 3 times a week because I'm sore for like 4-5 days after doing 5 sets. However I'm thinking about doing more of strength training but I need size on my chicken legs. I'm having a hard time making them grow.

At first, squatting three times each week is tough and you get sore, but after a while you get used to it. You just have to push through it and learn to love the pain haha..

squatting three times a week is really not as hard as you think. in fact you do only two heavy sets at all, at first sight it looks harder than it is. it could be that you have to squat once or maybe twice while being sore but your body gets used to it quick.
