Alright well I stopped doing Stronglifts beginning of September. I have since been doing Dan John's mass program outlined here ( http://www.T-Nation.com/training/10-secrets-to-building-mass ). I am doing this with the short term goal of simply getting bigger (I have to wear a uniform now with extremely large sleeves diameter wise for school), but as effective as the program was in keeping me in a serious training rhythm, I got SI joint pain/sciatica and had to take a week off before I did something stupid.
I originally planned as my goal for this school year was to learn the Olympic lifts and be strong, but when we did the pull-up test for freshman we went into the weight room and I saw all the football players stats.
The varsity football team at my school has won like 3 states in a row with all of them 30 plus point margins. At least 11 guys had 300 plus benches and most had a squat over 400. And they only did a few lifts: Push Press, Power Clean, Bench, Squat, and I think Pull-ups and Dips. This has since inspired me to cut all the fancy amino crap, stop going to the fruity local gym filled with fake bodybuilders and trainers who think they lift a lot when they wear Mens neon yoga pants then throw 350 on the bar and start squatting ( Thats another story ), and buy myself another pair of 45s for my old lifting set that I got for shingling my neighbors roof, (squat stands, a bench, barbell and weights to 265) that I cant use because the weights are too low.
But heres where I need help, I want to do a program that is not 531 and primarily does what those football players do, big, basic, lifting, with my goal being that I want to be strong, and big, but with frequent pressing, which I love. So heres what I got out:
6x3 (you may be saying I am an idiot but Bill Starr wrote IMO the best article on the press)
(anything I should/could add?)
Bench Press 531?
BB curl 3x10
5x5? I need help
weighted pull ups
Friday or Saturday
I dont know?
I like squatting pressing and lifting frequently
