Re: What do you think of my program and diet?

To echo others, I stalled fast on 5x5 once I got started with lifting. I think something like Texas method, Madcow, Westside etc. would yield better results. OR you could just do CF Football and not worry about this programming madness.

what's your point? so it added 5lbs a week to your bench and less than 10lbs a week to your squat? any good program would have done the same or better, especially considering that your starting numbers were so low.

however, congrats on your progress. your initial post was made 8 months ago and 8 weeks is only 2 months? so what have you done since then? what are you numbers now?

Re: What do you think of my program and diet?

"wendler isnt heavy at all"--is this a serious post?

Jim Wendler and anyone who's done his program would disagree with you, seeing how it has you working up to 5+, 3+, or 1+ sets on every lifting day. The 3+ and 1+ sets in particular are at a much higher % of your 1RM than a 5x5 set would be.
