I have posted on here a few times in regards to form chexk etc. Finally decided to ditch working at home and start going to the gym. I have been for the past 4 months consistently working out at the gym with the stronglifts 5x5.
For 4 months i have consistenly been benching and pressing and a few weeks ago I later started rowing, aquating and deadlifitng. In 4 months I have
Bench started at 37.5kg and ended up at 47.5kg
Overhead press started at 22.5kg went up to 32.5 and somehow ended up to 27.5.
Squats went from 40kg to 60kg in like 5 sessions
Deadlifts went from 40kg to 80kg in 5 sessions.
Rowing went from 30 to 40kg in 5 sessions
Wirh squats and deadlifts and rowing I feel like i started off much below my capability so its been eaay. But as u can see with my bench and overhead press I have been stagant. Wht is that??? i work out three times a week. I eat 1600 calories recommended for me cause i am an office worker but i do walk to work 2ks , 2 days a week. 175cm tall and 72kg. I actually dropped to 69.5 but still not a drastic weight loss. I eat almost 2.5kg of chicken meat a week for protien. About 400g a day it comes out to be. I get around 7hrs of sleep. Why am I not making gains?? is it the program? also I am now finding it struggle to complete squats. 5x5 recommmends it every workout sessions
