I am 33 and weigh 185lbs. I am 5'9".
I have a gut and no energy.



I started lifting about 6 weeks ago.I started the 5x5 on sunday.
I want to look like a super model by september.


I will talk about stuff and things in this thread.

7/1/12
Bench press:
5x bar
5x 20
5x 55
5x55
5x55
5x55
5x55

Squat:
5xbar
5x20
5x25
5x25
5x25
5x25
5x25
(took it easy because i hurt my nut last time)

Barbell rows:
5xbar
5x20
5x50
5x50
5x50
5x50
5x50

Pick the bar up and push it over your head thing:
5xbar
5x20
5x30
5x30
5x30
5x30
5x30




I know i am doing this wrong because i do not want to give up the results i have.I will prolly start at the beginning of the 5x5 on Wednesday.

DB status is earned, sir. Like the star on the helmet.

Haaa..DB. Not the best acronym.

4x70



Curl:

5x20

4x70


Tricep behind head thingie:

Failed some reps and threw up in my mouth on the over head press and again on the curl.

My form sucks . Also i am prolly going to hurt myself by trying to fight reps that should fail.
I like to yell loudly as i fight through the last reps.

I'm confused by your weights, you say 5xbar then 5x20. Is that 20+bar? If so you're already benching 100.

Most weigh 45, if it's a small apartment gym bar, maybe 30-35. So 45+55=100.

All weight is on top of the bar.

Bench:

5x5x60


Squat:
5x5x65


Rows:
5x5x70


Triceps:
5x5x50


Curls:

4x5x70
1x4x70



Failed only one rep this time.
This is getting fucking brutal.Recovery time takes the whole 48hrs now.I really have to fight through the last reps of every set.

Also i think the gym scale is broken.I gain 5lbs by the end of the work out every time.

Scales are stupid anyway. If your recovery is brutal then you need to scale back.

Long recovery times could be diet related. That's not an easy workout, but I don't think it's enough to be that punishing.

You can also look into nightly stretching and SMR (using a foam roller). That will help some. Anywho it took me years to figure out just how important scaling is and that being so sore that you can't function properly is completely counter productive to any goal. Workouts don't need to be balls to the wall every time. Not saying yours are. I think you're probably this sore because your body is facing stress it has never experienced. In other words, it's the newbie DOMS!

I concur. I have very little experience lifting and i suspect the 5x5 is not for newbies.

I'M GONNA POWER OUT OF IT!!!!!


Oddly enough my tricep are above avreage, maybe years of lifting motors and trannys.



My diet does suck and it is 10 hours since i ate last by the time i go to the gym.I think i should put food in my face before but i don't wanna juke it up.

I think if you give yourself a good hour or so after eating, you should be fine.

I occasionally burp up some food at the gym. Chase it back down with some water, and good to go!

Figured out what i was doing wrong. I now understand basic addition.




Total weight.


Squat
5x5x60

Ohp
5x5x105

Deadlift
2x105

Tricep
5x5x55

Curl
4x5x70
1x4x70

Left arm curl
5x5x30


Much easier this time but i still failed the curl. I am favoring the right so i put some extra weight on the left.

I started over with a full set of squats at 60 and ohp at 50. I felt like i did not get a work out.
I set everything up as if i started out on the 5th cycle. I plan on following the program correctly now.


This work out really works.It is a rough workout that will test your mental strenth but the results are excellent.Motivation is easy when you 30% increase in muscle size in a very short period of time.

Well said. It gets addicting when you start seeing results. Just remember initial gains come quickly and then begin to slow down. Don't lose your motivation when that happens. Just work harder/smarter!

Body type has nothing to do with game. Usually keep 6 in rotation.

I'd like to interrupt this thread to point out that I did more bicep curls than Brian once. We both did more than our resident "bodybuilder" who "trained Arnold Shwarzzenager and was the Texas arm wrestling champion".
