I did that program for about 2-3 months a couple years ago. Great strength/muscle building program. I think at the end my deads were up to about 350...if I tried that now, I'd probably drop a nut...

About 7 weeks in and I am really starting to see gains now.  Started from never having lifted.

Curious, why did you stop the program?  Are you finding more success with something else?  I am gathering info so I can plan what I'll do after I finish 5x5, they have some add-on programs called 3x5, etc.

It's a great muscle building program, but if you want to focus on specific areas, it falls flat. As a beginner, stick with it for a while, and once you get closer to the size/strength that you're looking for, then you can change your routine to focus on more specific muscles. It really covers all of the important lifts, and even if you eventually move onto another workout schedule, you'll still be utilizing them.

You may notice that after you get closer to your goal, maybe your chest, back, shoulders, triceps or some other area isn't where it needs to be...that's the time to change the program.

Good thoughts, thanks.  Thinking I will stick with it until I am no longer able to add weight, then I will start to mix things up.

Is that your 1 rep max, or is that for reps?

Yep, 1 rep.

I never heard that euphemism before.

Afternoon delight!

LOL

Not really though, wife is in Boston, that's why I'm on dog walking duty.

Your wife came here in a Nor'easter?  Maybe she can take some rain back with her to SoCal.

Ha, I had a big squat day Monday and yesterday was my most sore day. Looked like a weirdo getting in and out of my car.

Back today.

Depending on how I'm feeling, I may try to 1 rep up my whole olympic set (300 lbs) on the deadlift.

It will determine if I need to buy more weight soon. Mwahahahaha

(May end up in hospital)

    • Rahm out as well after another positive test.
    • I’ve been using Live paired with my iPhone without major issue the last 10 rounds or so. I’ve been starting the device, then pairing to the app so I can use the GPS if needed. Occasionally, the app will not know what hole I’m on for distances or I have to manually go to that hole. However, at the end, I’m able to edit the round on my phone with no issues. I then can open the round on my iPad and edit further if needed.
    • The videos can be interesting and instructive, but they can also pull you away from what is best for you to work on to improve. You can think of them as quick fixes and it can actually hurt your progress. Best advice is to work with a good instructor and practice smart to improve.
    • The speaker is referring to weight toward the toes or heel when they say front and back. As for the second part, the player on the right is a little more vertical at set up and early extends on the downswing. Early extension means you straighten up sooner than you should losing hip rotation speed and power. The right elbow can also get stuck behind your side.There are several ways to work on this, but without seeing your swing, it would be hard to comment. 
    • I'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
