Hello everyone, I’m new to the forums. I’ve been strength training for around 5 months now. I’m 5’9", 190 lbs. (up from 75-180ish when I began Starting Strength a month ago). I put 25 lbs. on my best 3 x 5 Squat, 10 lbs. on my best 3 x 5 Bench, I stalled on Overhead Presses, and I put 20 lbs. on my best 1 x 5 Deadlift. I made some decent gains, but I forcefed myself, and I’m really not as limber or athletic as I would like to be at this point. My current stats are:
Squat: 275 x 5 (up from 245 x 5 x 3)
Bench: 170 x 6 (up from 155 x 5 x 3)
Press: 115 x 5
Deadlift: 315 x 5 (up from 315 x 3 touch-and-go)
I don’t sleep much (only 5-6 hr./night), and I really can’t afford all the food I’m eating in a day, so I’m making the switch to 5/3/1 Jack Shit Template w/ added farmers’ walks. I can generally train 4x/week, but I don’t have that much time to train with, so I think this kind of plan will work for me.
What are your guys’ thoughts?
