I have been “working out” for “2.5 years.” More like off and on and just seriously started around 2ish months ago.
6’1" 190 lbs, 35% body fat, 38" waist
I am running the 3x5 version of 5x5 because I literally could not progress on 5x5 and I have stalled on 150lbs bench lol
Today I went in and did 150x5 1st set then 150x3 2nd set then 150x2 3rd set all to failure with 5 minutes in between each set as the program describes.
I am unsure how to feel or what to do. I am running a proven program’s 3x5 version and eating 2 chicken breasts with other protein bars, shakes (around 200g protein per day)
What’s worse is the fact that it gets depressing to see yourself being 190lbs struggling to put up 150 for 5…
Any advice/tips as to what I can do? Judging from my bicep insertions I probably don’t have the best genetics (I’m Indian), but 225 is naturally attainable for everyone isn’t it?
Thanks and I look forward to your response!
