I do not recommend the excessive use of stimulants. Due to its sideeffects such as fatigue and insomnia.

Are there more supplements beyond the basics to take during the Strength and Mass Holiday?

Yes, of course, there is many more supplements to take. As „Basics first“ is one of the pillars of my supplement philosophy I recommended to get the basics as outlined in the Supplement Chapter first. And then add more specific supplements, primarily based on the Skinfoldmeasurement. Which is optional as 99% of the results are based on getting the basics right.

Yes, you can do both legs at a time.

The program contains chinups and pullups in some of the programs. I can not do one repetition of each yet. Can I still do the Strength and Mass Holiday?

Yes, you can. Just substitute the chinups or pullups with a lat pulldown with the same grip. Do the same sets, tempo and rest. Just add 2 repetitions to the given repetition range. That means if the program says 2-4 repetitions for the chinups or pullups do 4-6 repetitions on the lat pulldown.

Can I do the Strength and Mass Holiday over a long weekend or does it have to be a full week?

Yes, if your long weekend involves five days like thursday to monday you can just move the days, so the „monday“ of the program as outlined in Chapter 6 is your „thursday“. The „tuesday is your „friday“. And so on.
