I'm back here after following you for almost 10 years or so :). Not to bug you with my long personal story, I'll try and keep it short. 1st time I ever made any progress in my training was when I stumbled across T-Nation site. I started taking notes in my training religiously, stuffing my face with a lot of food and I got from 80 to 90 kg bodyweight, got my Squats to almost 90kg, deadlift over 100 and powercleans also over 100. I could also do a couple of pull-ups
in 2006 I broke my knee, got 15 stitches, 2 screws which stay in there forever and was basically fuq***. In the past couple of years I bounced back and forth in and out of the gym but with no way of getting back to the old "glory dayz". This last winter I decided to do it or die. I signed up, got on the basic routines along the lines of Wichita Falls novice, Stronglifts 5x5, Mark Ripptoes routine, etc. Here I am now - "skinny fat", ling limbs and thin bones. The worst type for building serious muscle:
The problem I'm having are plateaus. I can now squat 70Kg but can't go past that so I backed off a bit. I Deadlift around 70-80, clean 40-50 and I cant press more than 40 Kg overhead for the life of me. I train 3 days a week, do free weight excercises exclusively and I prefer big, compound movements. Where do I go from here? Any tips much appreciated!
