I began lifting in August of 07. I wasted a whole bunch to time on split routines, gaining no real muscle (though I did loose 20lbs). Around the beginning of 2008, I got my diet in order, but my training was still lacking.
I finally decided that in order to get bigger, I have to get a lot stronger first. I have been following the Stronglifts 5x5 Beginner program for almost a month, and I have to say, I love the simplicity of the program.
Today, I decided to start posting my workouts, just for the hell of it. I don’t really need any motivation, adding more weight to the bar is plenty, but I thought I might as well share what I’m doing with the forum.
- Glute activation work with the warmup, for anterior pelvic tilt. I have trouble feeling my glutes in the squat, and this helps me get the form down.
- Grip work is added to the end of B days, to help my grip for pull-ups/chin-ups.
