I followed Bill Starr’s 5x5 intermediate from October till January my dead lift and squat went from 145x5 to 275x5 in that time. I messed up my shoulder in january, well I did some rack pulls today and strugled with 245x1. My 1rm squat is 240 as well… Im depressed.
My goal is health/looks however I would like to be able to lift more than the average person. I would like a dead-squat of 315x5 at bodyweight of 165-170
My question is will I get the strength gains I want by following Waterburys routines starting with ABBH-BBB-TPT-SFM-TBT etc etc and following a mass eating plan ?
dumb question, I know but Im just not motoviated seeing my gains go away so fast
