Rather than throw myself a pity party or bore you guys with my life story and excuses, I’ll be brief. Weighing in at 316 pounds at 30 or 35+ body fat, I’m a six foot two twenty something male with a year of serious lifting experience. My modified lifts are as followed.
Squat: 170 5 x 4
Bench: 140 5 x 4
Deadlift 230 5 x 4
Overhead Press: 85 5 x 4
In the spirit of the 531 philosophy, I wanted to go low. Granted my actual lifts aren’t that much better.
Squat: 220 1x1
Bench: 175 1x1
Deadlift: 300 1x1
Overhead Press: 105 1x1
I’m about to finish my first cycle of BBB, but I’m running into a problem. My quads or hamstrings can’t handle paused squats or front squats 5 x 10 right after squatting. Other than that I like the BBB template. However, since I’m trying to lose 136 pounds, I know building muscle would close to futile. Going over Beyond 531 S.S.S (Singles.Size.Speed), Beyond 531, and Advanced 531 all look like great candidates for me to use
Any advice would be appreciated.
