I'm an avid reader of the forums and don't post much, but I learned a bunch. I'm sitting at 172 lbs from 147 6 months ago.
I'm currently on madcow's 5x5.
Here are my lifts (1RM in lbs)
bent-over rows : 160
squats : 230 (ass to ground yo!)
deadlift : 350
Military press : 120
Here's the problem. I'm starting a new session in college and I have a lifting course. The gym is shit. When I mean shit, it's like there are up to 50 lbs dumbells, a sitting smith bench press, and a pec-dec and a wobbly leg press machine.
A bent 15 cheap barbell and about 150 pounds of weight. Oh yeah, they also bought a fucktons of bosu-balls and balance boards, and they won't buy a cage when asked.
In order to pass the course, I must succesfully create a program and see results from it that I'll have to prove by passing 1RM tests at the beginning and at the end. The thing is, I max all those machines already, and the smith bench press kills my shoulders. I have to train 2 times / week there. I'm already training 3 days at the real gym for the 5x5.
What's there to do so I won't lose my time and make my teacher happy? No serious equipment means I can't train the 5x5 at my college gym. It needs to be a full body workout. Should I just work on isolation?
