    Deadlift 1x5
    Barbell Shrugs 3x6-12

    Subbed.

    Your routine looks pretty solid but there's one thing that concerns me. Shrugs and weighted dips on recovery day might be too much. I would put them on Monday and do a circuit with your assistance: shrugs, abs, pull ups and dips if possible to save time. My recovery day is usually just light squats, light bench/press, back extensions and possibly abs/curls.

    Thanks bro! Repped I will do that then. Makes sense it'll make Wednesday short and sweet. Now I do believe I started out a little high with 205 this past Monday. However ima stick to that weight for next week and do 230 on this friday Friday for 5. 205 was rough for my first 5x5 day so ill keep it at 205 until I hit 240-245 on intensity day

    Ah **** can't rep ya gotta spread it around first. But I'm subbing to ur log too.

    Also would u still do 5x5 weighted pull ups if I put em in a circuit? Or would you do 3x8-12 like I have the dips?

    I would say to put dips on Friday because Monday's 5x5 is alot of work already. As well as switch out the pull ups with the shrugs. I personally wouldn't want sore traps going into a deadlift session. Anyway you'll figure it out what works for you

    Yeah I'm thinking about doing the shrugs right After the deadlifts on Friday followed by the Kroc Row and dips. Thanks for the advice

    Thanks man repped. And for a long time I had workout ADD (started lifting randomly 2 years ago). Before this tho I finally did Starting Strength taking me into the intermediate stage in Mark Rippetoes chart as I started to stall after I hit those lifts. I'm sticking to this for all it's with and can't wait as I want to become a powerlifter

    2 years went by and not many results so I said WTF I'm gonna finally start listening to a lot of people on here and my goal changed from physique to strength

    No, recovery day and foam rolling would do just fine. Anything else would more likely harm recovery IMO. I do conditioning when I can, either the day after VD, the day after ID or both.

    Look forward to the sub

    ive been thinking. i eventually wanna do some strongman stuff once i hit HUGE numbers on my dead/squat/bench. Should i be power cleaning on mondays? I know the original Mark Rippetoe layout template was cleans on fridays and deadlifts on mondays which sounds so dumb. who can PR every week on the deadlift if doing them after 5x5 squats. So the only thing else i wanna change is maybe do 5x3 cleans on mondays and put the weighted pull ups on wednesdays. Would this be a good idea guys?

    I wouldn't over think something so trivial as walking. I basically walk with my dog every day either around my apartment complex or at the park. I don't count it as cardio or try to keep track and regulate it depending on what I'm lifting that day.

    Why cleans? That is a portion of an Olympic lift.

    In strongman you do clean and presses and you need explosive power. Explosiveness is one of the key factors.

    Don't they do continental cleans with thick bars and weird sh!t like that? I don't know much about strongman but I haven't really seen them do the traditional clean with a nice thin bar and catching in the bottom position like Olympic lifters do.

    you're right about the thick bars and weird ****. I don't have a thick bar at my gym. But i wouldn't be catching it in the squat position that's just called a Clean. A Power Clean you just catch it and you're not even in the squat position.

    Lol. You could find a strongman log on here and go in and ask them what they think would be the best exercise(s) to start off with.

    IMO, I think you're going overboard with the accessories. First off, I would keep the accessories on recovery day to a very minimum. The sole purpose of the day is to aid recovery. Do you light squats and bench/press, maybe throw in some curls if you want. More than that and you're jeopardizing your recovery for intensity day. I would also keep the accessories on intensity day to a minimum. Intensity day is supposed to be high intensity, but low volume. Throw in a bunch of accessories and you turn it into a high intensity high volume session. Accessories are ok on volume day, but you're already doing a lot of volume, so you don't want to destroy yourself. If you really want to add in a few accessories, you might be best off throwing in an accessory day on Tuesday. Having said that, I think your best bet is to just focus on the big 4, chinups/pullups, and some ab/core work. Your biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, traps, etc. will get plenty of work and you'll add on some good size just from doing the main lifts. You can do whatever you want, that's just my 2 cents.

    Good luck with TM, it's a great program.

    Realized I still have Workout - Workout linear progression gains that are still possible. I am of intermediate strength at my current weight but if I get up to 200 lbs I can make it to my goals much faster. So back to Starting Strength it is for now. I will of course keep using this log for my SS workouts as I will still do the Texas Method once linear progression stops at 200 lbs of bodyweight
