I’ve been doing Doggcrapp for about 10 months and am just flat-out tired of hitting failure each set and PR’s. I literally get anxiety the night before thinking about what I need to hit the next day…and believe me, I ain’t that kind of guy normally.
Still, it’s been hugely beneficial; I’m way stronger and bigger. I’d like to do something that takes out the guesswork, helps me keep/gain strength/muscle while I clean up my diet. I stopped drinking and eating in the car (both are big contributors to my not being lean) and am certain that if I replace those calories with good sources, I’ll keep getting stronger/bigger.
I have 5/3/1 forever and beyond 5/3/1…had the 5/3/1 2nd edition on an Ipad that is gone. I’ve done BBB, BBB Challenge and Periodization bible before but all were in a garage gym. I still have that gym but also lift at a proper lifting gym; not a place with Purple machines.
FWIW, I just turned 58, 5’10" and weigh between 223-230 depending, calipers say 13.4%bf; probably closer to 16 actually. Strong compared to most, really strong for my age. Deads and Squats are tough on me as my hips get out of alignment easily and working on that with exercise /stretching now. I can use a Leg Press and Hammer Strength deadlift.
Thanks in advance y’all.
