To all strong bears,
My question regards programming-especially the 5x5 stuff.
The longer i have hit a plateau now.So i tried the 5x5 intermediate version by madcow first.
I followed exactly the template but i was not able to hit Prs. I also had the feeling,that it was too less work somehow and the weights always felt quite heavy,even the first 4 weeks although I took 5 weeks to ramp up and started as recommended.
Remember that this template includes only ramped sets.
So I tried 5x5 advanced by madcow next.
Here I was abel to hit Prs regarding the 5x5 on monday (straight sets!) but not on friday.(ramped sets)
Any suggestions what to do? Do I need more workload?
Ramped sets donÂ´t work for me.
BTW I consider myself not THAT advanced although training for 10 years.
My best bench is 90kg 5x5RPM(straight sets) press:60kg 5x5RPM at BW 90kg
Squat and deadlift is in line with a novice programm (started squatting and deads quite late in my carrer-i know my fault)
help is appreciated!
