To me this appears to be a very practical, foundational training program for building a solid base of strength. Lots of testimonials of people making good strength gains.
I was unimpressed with the 'before and after' photos of people which i hardly noticed a difference in how they looked, but realisticly , diet is probably the reason for that .
Is anyone here currently doing or has done SL 5x5 program ?
If so, is there anything that you added or modified ?
When you started the program, what was your level of lifting experience ? Did you do the bs thing about starting with just the bar ? Or did you simply start at your current 70% 1RM for each lift ?
Was there anything that didnt agree with you when doing this program ?
