I started a simple 5x5 program about a month ago, alternating between the two workouts with a day of rest in between. I’ve been adding 5lbs per w/o to upper body lifts and 10lbs per w/o to lower body lifts. That comes out to 10lbs per week and 20lbs per week added to each lift (respectively).
I started with pretty easy weights and I’ve been drinking a gallon of milk a day but I feel like I’m on the verge of stalling out and I wanted to know what I could do to prevent it.
Here’s what I’m doing…
Incline Bench Press
I was thinking of either A)dropping to 3x5 to continue gaining strength, B)just reset each exercise 15lbs (30lbs for lower body) as it stalls or C)move to a 5x5 push/pull/legs split.
