I’m back after about a year layoff and a tour to Iraq. I’ve lost a ton of weight in the desert from practically starving myself and working out very little. I lost 25 pounds and am back to 150.
Deadlift–I currently do 5x5’s. After each rep I put the weight down and reset to lift again with no rest obviously. At the end of each set however I feel really lightheaded and about to pass out. Does this happen to anyone else?
Squats–I notice that when most people do squats they never get to parallel. I know they should, but I go beyond parallel to where my butt is almost on the deck. Am I going to hurt myself doing this?
Also, since I’ve gotten back in the game I’ve been doing 1-day on, 1-day off. My 1-day consists of Squat, Deadlift, Pullups and my 2-day is Bench, Clean and Press, and Dips. All of this 5x5’s. I’d like to think I’m back on the right track, but I know I’m probably leaving something out. Any ideas?
