SS with I.F. ..... college freshman
Hi this is my first log here. I have been lifting for about 1 year and a few months.
I started doing the stupid body-builder workouts with volume(all isolation) that I could not handle and wasted a good 9 months not getting any progress on top of that I was doing 40-50 min of steady low intensity cardio and consumed almost no protein.
After 8 moths with no significant results I took a pause later on I got my shit together and started 5x5 StrongLifts. I did that for a good 4-5 months and got the best strength and size results. After taking a few months break I came back in the gym and felt like shit. I started jumping from one routine to another and I realized ...screw it I am doing doing SS until its impossible for me to get any more strength gains or results.
Squat - 275x5
Bench - 250x4
I enjoyed 5X5 but I will give S.S. a try and then go into Texas method
I weight 255 /6'2
Also I am doing I.F. 20 hours fast 4 hours feeding window in the morning.
-Work my way around my flat feet and tight legs to start squatting ATG and hit 315
- Cut down to about 220 without losing strength
275x 5, you can probably hit a 315 squat right now.
Nice progress so far and good goals. A lot of silly weight will come off with just a cleaned up diet. Good carbs and lots of protein.
Hope you get where you want to go. Seems like you've made a good start. Rock on.
Subbed. Good luck reaching your goals. Will be following along.
nice progress so far and good luck in reaching your goals.
Good luck buddy!!
Nice work Furious!
Welcome! Good luck with your goals! consistency is always key
Workout A,after reading for about 6 more hours I finished Mark Rippetoe SS book and realized my squat and dead lift forms were horrible.
Food Consumed Early before fast : 1 scoop of oats / 3 scoops of whey / 4 cups of milk / 1 cup of raw coffee / Handful of trail mix - blended
150g of Lean turkey deli meat
3x285- horrible form
I decided to listen to Rippetoe and learn the power-lifter type squat and also tune down the weight to 235 but Work on form and depth then slowly progress.
255x4 - New PR
For dead-lifts my shins would normally bleed from the bar scraping them but with wider stance and better form from the book I learned how to improve my form.
Slowly but surely I am hoping to surpass my previous PRs with better form.
Biggest issue today was squats.......my grip was horrible because I lacked the flexibility to wrap my hand around the bar when its lower.
Hope you can get those squats figured out. Stay strong.
Update: No internet connection for the last 5 days... testosterone levels highly increased !
Best lifts from last 3 workouts.... 315x1 squat / 385x1 deadlift / 255x4 bench / 175x2 press
