I will be moving into a new house hopefully over the summer, and I am looking into getting free weights because it seems that I will have the room to do so. I want to make some serious strength gains, and will most likely start off with the bill starr 5 X 5 program. My concern is what kind of diet to follow to maximize my strength gains while not gaining much mass. I know that muscle size and strength are related, and a bigger muscle should be able to move more weight since it has more fibers, etc. Is it just a matter of not eating too many calories and eating effectively pre and post workout? Just doing some research to get an idea of what I will be doing. Plus, I have not really seen too much on this topic in my search. Everyone and their mothers out there is after adding size. The way I see it, the stronger I am while maintaining my weight the more of an advantage I have. If I gain a bunch of muscle I am nullifying some of it. The same can be said by not eating a shitload and trying to maximize my strength gain.
