I’ve just started on bill starr’s 5x5 intermediate workout and am stalling on my week 4 monday squats at 315. Managed to knock out 3 reps the previous friday but only managed to hit 4 today, 4th one was a real grind, 5th one was a half-squat…
My weights is 195 lbs and current 5rms are as follows
Daily caloric intake approximately 3200 cals.
Prior to this I was running 5/3/1 but was stalling badly on all my lifts so decided to drop down to a less advanced program hence 5x5 intermediate.
Based on my current numbers, I want to know if I should take it down a notch further and go on 5x5 SS (which I have never ran before btw, was kinda running a bodybuilding program prior to 531.)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
