Strong lifts 5X5
My first 2 weeks I just kept adding weight trying to find what my 5RM was I was surprised to see how much I could really lift.
In week 3 I believe this is were I made the mistake is adding to much weight to the squat, everything else felt good. Some of the lifts are slowing down and its taking a little longer rest in between sets about 2-3 min.
really started to notice that my squats are really bad might have pulled a calf muscle by coming up on the ball of my feet.
Also started to use micro plates to aid in adding weight a little slower now.
Week 5 (a quick de-load and form check)
Just this week I will do a little less weight to check for form mainly on squats
So what do you think? I already know I'm fat!!!
My diet is clean and also taking vitamins, fish oil and protein.
current weight is 313 lbs
I have also signed up for this class starting March 13: OLY lifting class
That's it for now see you next week
Your squats look pretty good.
I think you'll be putting up some big numbers in the near future!
One thing: the surface you're squatting on-- is it level? If not, that may have contributed to you coming up on the balls of your feet.
