I am about to start Bill Starr’s 5x5, but here are my stats:
6 ft, 175 pounds
ATG squat: 150
Power Clean: 115
Incline Bench: 105
For every lift, it is impossible for me to go up 2.5% a week. I can only go up 5 pounds mininum because thats the smallest weights I have (2.5 pound weights). Is this going to be a major problem? I have been lifting for almost 2 years, so im not really a beginner, though I am a beginner to weekly lower reps/higher set programs.
(What my school does is go 3x10 for 3 weeks, then 3x8 for 3 weeks, 3x6, then reset) Should I get Starting Strength instead? Would a normal bookstore have Starting Strength?
