I recently picked up training again and still need some advice.
My weight is around 215 at 6’1 and stayed the same for the last 5 months.
My current training plan consists of the following exercises.
squat 198 x 5 x 5 x 5
bench press 215 x 5 x 5 x 5
Power clean 154 x 5 x 5 x 5
cardio 40 min
deadlift 297 x 5 x 5 x 5
dips 12 x 12 x 12
pull ups 8 x 6 x 5
My squat seems low but the rest looks good to me.
Nothing outstanding but I can regular push my limits.
One thing I am not sure about is stretching and flexibility work.
Especially after the last couple of exercises my Achilles tendon/soleus area felt very stiff.
I recently increased the speed on the treadmill so this might have something to do with it.
Not long ago I started foam rolling and these areas hurt quite a bit.
The other area I am unsure about is supplements,
as of now I don’t take anything except iron-II so I can donate blood again.
Is it worth checking out at my current level or can I postpone it or completely ignore it?
Thanks for your advice.
