Hello, I posted this in the beginner’s section because I must be a beginner if’n I don’t know this answer.
I have been at Starr’s 5x5 for over a year now and just recently someone suggested I quite my Beginner’s plan and move on to an intermediate plan. After a week of searching, I have no idea what to do. Alot of people seem to suggest this 5/3/1? But there are many variations. Therefore, I have come to you for suggestions. My current routine is as follows.
All lifts at 5 sets of 5 reps
Mon: Bench, squat, deadlift
Wed: Standing military-press, squat, dynamic rows and pull-ups
Fri: Bench, squat, deadlift
I would often add in some ab work afterwards.
I like squatting, proud to have my squat at nearly double my weight now (I’m 5’3 at 140llbs, my 5x5 squat is 275…no idea what my 1rm is) and I’d have a tendency to pursue full body routines. That said, I am a novice at lifting still and pretty much will follow what I’m told.
Thanks for the time guys/gals.
