I’ve been doing the intermediate bodybuilder starting strength program
So I workout MWF, alternating between the following two workouts.
Back Squat 3x5, 1x8
Bench Press 3x5, 1x8
Bent over barbell Row 3x5, 1x8
Front Squat 3x5, 1x8
Seated Press 3x5, 1x8
Knee Press 3x5, 1x8
I do the knee press instead of the romanian deadlift, because after squats, I always feel sore in my ass and hams, but never my quads.
Currently, I’m gaining a little over a pound a week (which makes me feel sick since I’m always full). I started at 160 and now am at 165, but all my pressing lifts have stalled.
On the Seated Press, I’m stuck at 135 and on the bench press I’m stuck at 185.
Is this just a problem with Starting Strength, even when modified? Previously, I was doing Max OT, and my bench press and shoulder press were going up by ~5 lb every 2-3 weeks.
