I have been doing stronglifts 5x5 for 4 months. I really like this routine but I dont like 5x5. I would like switch 5x5 to ramp up to one set (5-8 reps). Right now I am with squat 82kg 5x(5,5,3,3,1) and I am really tired and I think I go to gym hurt myself instead of getting better (I eat well (gained 12lbs per 2 months), sleep well, but work as a labour picking heavy things).
So I would start like this:
10 x Bar
8 x 50% of work weight
6 x …
1 x 90%
100% (work set - 82kg) x 5 reps, continue with this weight every workout when I reach 8 reps, add weight for all exercises.
I like this idea that I can concentrate for one set, save time, not drain my body…
Do you think it is good idea?
