    started my 5x5s!


    Well actually i started them a few weeks ago sticking to only the compound lifts with no accessory lifts. Things to keep in mind:
    -the only supplement i take is a whey protien once a day post wo
    -i eat 4500-5000 cals a day. This is a clean bulking cycle so lots of lean meats for me
    -i do use chewing tabacco. i know a lot of guys dislike this but i cant tell you for sure if it affects my weights and mass
    -taking 2-3min breaks inbetween each set
    -lifting monday,wednesday,friday
    -starting weight 185 with 7%body fat

    first day
    squat-135,185, 275 for 5 sets of 5
    bench-135,135, 225 for 5x5
    barbell rows-135,135, 185 for 5x5

    everything ws pretty easy i started my weights lower to get in the groove of things

    day 2
    squats-135,185, 280 for 5x5
    overhead press-45,45, 135 for 5x5
    dead lift-135,185,315

    everything was good except for my overhead press. i got all the reps but really struggled to keep my form. im doing these standing

    day 3
    squats-135,185, 285 for 5x5
    bench-135,135, 230 for 5x5
    barbell rows 135,135, 190 for 5x5

    day 4
    squat-135,185, 295 for 5x5
    over head press-45,95, 145 for 5x5
    dead lift-135,225,325

    over head press was a lot easyer today. i kept my form good and pressed like a mad man

    day 5
    squat-135,185,300 for 5x5
    bench-135,135,235 for 5x5
    barbell rows-135,135, 195 for 5x5

    day 6
    squat-135,185,305 for 5x5
    over head press-45,45, 150 for 5x5
    dead-135,225,345

    decided to bump up my deadlift a little because it didnt feel like i was lifting heavy enough but the ajustment felt a lot better. Squats are starting to get a little more difficult but i think i can get to 330 ish before i have start to platue. once this happens i will be dropping the weight a little and working past it.

    current weight-189
