I class myself as very much a beginner, having 'exercised' inconsistently for a number of years. I began listing with more regularity about 2 years ago, and really got into it about a year or so ago. I had started doing Crossfit at a decent gym with a lot of focus on strength but have since moved away and have not found another one yet.
Goals are size and strength, current stats:
187 cm, 90-92kg, (18-20% bf)
OH Press: 50
I currently train early mornings in a Puregym, which has a reasonable selection of equipment and is cheap as chips. I had been running 5/3/1 for about 4 cycles, but had massively stalled on the squat and the OH press. A friend of mine had been having great success on Stronglifts, and I thought it was worth a go. However, my Bench and Deadlift were still progressing on 5/3/1, and I wanted to maintain that. So...I combined the two programs to come up with my own variation.
The main things I wanted to get out of the program were:
Lifting 5 days a week - I love it, and I work in an office for 10-12 hours a day, so it's very important to me to get into the gym.
Squatting 3+ times a week - I really want to make some gains squatting, and am really starting to enjoy it. I also feel that my recovery from 3-4x per week is better than 1x per week.
Deadlifting more than 1 set per week - again, I love the deadlift and have made real progress in the last 6 months
Pressing - Huge weakness of mine, looking to improve with increased training volume
The program is effectively this:
OH Press (5x5)
OH Press (5x5)
I've been running this for about 10 weeks with good results, all my numbers have gone up and overall I have felt fine. My concern is that soon I will start to burnout, fry my CNS, get ill/injured etc.
Any advice from the more experienced lifters out there would be greatly appreciated.
