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
