Hello everyone :)
I recently started Stronglifts 5x5, and finally decided to start a training journal.
The reason I decided to go for this program is because of chewybaw's training log, and how impressed I was with his progess.
Well, I'll introduce myself where it's appropriate - time to get to the log itself ;)

Height: 183 cm , Weight: 70 kg when started

I'm just done with Week 6 of the program, and everything went smoothly so far, except one time where I failed to get 5x5 on Overhead press. Today's lift were

Squats 5x5 : 62.5 kg
Overhead press 5x5: 40 kg
Deadlifts 1x5: 85 kg

Could be nice to get some tips regarding assistance work, diet, etc.

Today's workout:

Squats 5x5 : 65 kg
Bech press 5x5: 50 kg
Barbell rows 5x5: 50 kg

I think next time I'll add pull-ups to this, because the workout with the bench and row is much easier than the one with the press and deadlifts.

Soon I'll add what I eat, but currently its a ton of legumes and peanut butter with bread on top of a regular vegan diet (fruits, veggies, rice, soymilk etc).

Today workout went fine, but from tomorrow I have finals so I'll see how good I can stick to working out.
Also, I don't write my warm ups - it's just the lifts from empty bar with 3 even jumps up to the working set.

Lifts:
Squats 5x5 : 67.5 kg
Overhead press 5x5: 42.5 kg
Deadlifts 1x5: 90 kg

Thanks, I feel a tremendous progress already - it was pretty hard for me to do 40kg on squat but now 40 kg feels light, and everytime a bigger weight takes the "hard" place instead.

26/06/2014 :

Squats 5x5 : 70 kg
Bench 5x5: 52.5 kg
Rows 5x5: 52.5 kg

That's really cool, I'll keep an eye on your progress :) hope this workout went better for you.



It was really a mistake coming to the gym today.
I didn't sleep well, and felt really weak and came unfoucused at all.

I used a lower working set for the squats twice, and one I noticed it I ramped it up but then used too much weight - I couldn't complete 5x5.
Also, couldn't complete 5x5 on the press. Shitty day.

30/07/14

Squats 5x5 : 75 kg Edit: dropped dead after 3 sets :)
Overhead press 5x5: 45 kg Edit: had 3x5 then another two sets where I got only 3 reps
Deadlifts 1x5: 95 kg

I am there with you, squats getting REALLY heavy on me.
Last session I got through all sets @ 77.5kg, but those 5 sets destroyed me, I failed every set of overhead press after that.

Thanks, and I have 80kg next - hope I won't fail, and I hope you won't as well :)

Yeah, I would really like that - I love hedgehogs; although the ones that get in my garden don't love me back :( they're really intimidated by humans unless you keep a good distance.


8/7/14

So, to recover better I started eating more, and keeping track of calories became a pain so I stopped doing it. Right now I'll try to eat as much as I can.

Today's workout was great, although it was hard not to cheat at the end of the rows, so I cheated two reps and had to re-do them...

Squats 5x5 : 77.5 kg
Bech press 5x5: 57.5 kg
Barbell rows 5x5: 57.5 kg
Pull ups : 1x7
Chin ups: 1x6

Today during squats my hips started to hurt, never had any pain there, so it was a unique experience.
I decided to stop squatting when it started, so I guess you can say I failed on squats, also screwed my deadlifts...
As for overhead presses - I deloaded to 40kg because I thought there were 3 stalled workouts turns out there were only two, but I'll keep on from there.

Squats 5x5 : 80 kg
Overhead press 5x5 : 40 kg
Deadlifts 1x5 : 105 kg
