Hey guys right now I'm doing Stronglifts 5x5.
Right now my stats for 5x5 on each one is:
Squat: 230 5x5
Bench: 175 5x5
OHP: 115 5x5
Deadlift: 315 5x5 (been doing these for a while)
Barbell Rows: 160 5x5
Neutral Grip Pullups: 4
I'm 6" 0" and 195 lbs.
Kind of the "stronglifts diet"- I make sure to have protein with every meal, eat tons of vegetables and fruit, and only eat grains post workout. I started out on a bit of s caloric deficit, but after losing a far amount of weight I've switched to maintenance for the most part.
Goals: I would like to be able to do a 315 squat, 405 deadlift, 225 bench, 145 lb military press, and ten pullups by the of the year. I would also like to maintain approximately the same weight at 195-200 but have gained muscle.
I've been doing this for four months now and just decided to start actually recording my log here.
I'll start with Monday's session:
I started out with a pretty big omelette with three eggs, ham, spinach, garlic.
Then preworkout I had some milk with whey mixed in it.
Squat 220 5x5 (took a deload earlier due to knee pain)
OHP 110 5x5 (also deload)
Deadlift 315 1x5
Pullups: As many as possible
Squat was fairly difficult but kept form for most of it- only noticed knees tracking inwards a couple of times. I did fall forward/ good morning a couple of times though- this could be a problem.
OHP: Not difficult, blasted out all sets. Shouldnt be hard to move up to at least 112.5 (I use fractional plates)
Deadlift: got all 5 reps, but had to take some rest in between and form seemed to suffer. However, grip strength was fine with mixed grip. Considering a deload for form at least.
Edit: lower back fried next day- but not painful just muscle soreness.
Pullups: got plenty of chins- nearly six, but pullups were more difficult (only got two), as were the neutral grips ones.
