I have tried following a few different programs and progress is slow for me. I have good technique and diet, but usually I am eating at maintenance calories or below because I try to remain a bit lean. I understand this will hinder my progress but it’s the way I am choosing to do things.
My bodyfat is around 13%, 6’0, 175lb and I have a very humble 940lb total. I have been weight training for many years but only training as a powerlifter for the last 1 year.
My squat really sucks and to try and improve this I am trying to squat 5x per week which seems trendy right now.
Is there any problem with also increasing the frequency of deadlift and benchpress? I know a lot of people bench 2 or 3 times per week and some as high as 5. Will this work for deadlift too?
I am trying to create my own routine, since the ones out there are so diverse and contradictory, why not just experiment on myself?
