Thanks btb, I'm really happy with this program. The simplicity of it makes it hard to believe it could work until i see the results im getting after only 3 weeks or so.

I admit I haven't really been following your log, but I will keep track from here out.
I've done this routine and is one of the best routines I've ever done. I was the most muscular and the strongest I've ever been when I was done with this routine. Of course I had worked out for a few years before and also I stopped working out almost a year immediately following this routine, but I experienced awesome gains none the less while doing this 5x5.
Congrats on the PRs. Continue to smash.

Its awesome to hear about the success other people have had with this program because that just helps reinforce what i can achieve by doing this. Just trying to get through this crazy week so i can get back on track for monday.

The older I get, the more I appreciate simplicity.

the deadlifts were awesome. my pr from last week flew up off the ground. this weeks pr felt good. the first rep was a bit of a smack to the face but after that i powered through. think im going to try and add 11 pounds to this week if i can.

was just too exhausted at this point. long day and a solid ass kicking workout put me down for the count.

Overall felt pretty good. took a while to get going but got my way through it. The last set of bench was pretty taxing and almost didnt make it on the last rep at the very top.
