Hey guys im one month into stronglifts 5x5 after not training at all (well rarel for the last year due to some joint issues that seem to be gone now i have posted in other threads about them)
i was training almost 2 yrs solid before my break, and from memory my PB's in squat was like 200x12 reps (rough weight cant remember) same for deadlift and bench was bodyweight 180lb not sure of reps i used to get. reason i never had a 1RM was cos i had used all my weights and bar was full. i am either gonna buy new oly set or just use the gym near college when i get to that weight.
i was doing some bits and pieces the previous month just to get my mojo for it back again,then i started 5x5 program as i needed some sort of discipline to keep me on the right path, i will say at the moment i am really liking the program and enjoy getting new PBs every other day it keeps me wanting to do it
i will post some videos of my squats and deadlifts now and in the next few days will post bench an OHP and row as i want to make sure i am not doing it wrong (form)
weight has always been a struggle for me, always been tubby/fat so my main goal is really to just get strong again and shed fat.Time is not a panic for me if it takes several months so be it i just want to do it right.
thanks for any feedback.
also the vids on my PC play fine but they may come out sideways (iphone sorry)
