    Stalled on the squat for the first time. Advice on what to do please?

    Well, 2 days ago, on my Tuesday workout, I stalled on the squats for the first time, at 65 kgs. I'm doing stronglifts 5x5. I did 5-5-5-4-5, and therefore, I repeated the same weight in today's workout (Thursday) and I stalled again! This time it was worse, 5-4-4-4-4.
    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. My nutrition's been the same, I consume enough protein and carbs, 3000 cals a day and 1g per pound of lean body mass. I also get enough sleep too.

    My questions are
    - Is 65 kilos too early to start stalling on stronglifts? Especially twice in a row.
    - What do I do to overcome this? Any suggestions please?

    Try it a 3rd time, if you miss reps...deload.

    What about regarding diet and nutrition and stuff?
    Also, is it normal to stall at 65 kilos. I was googling and people say that they had their first stalls at 90 kilos and stuff. So I'm not sure if I'm doing it wrong or not.
    Should I recheck my nutrition and diet?

    Try to fulfill your rep range of 5x5 by decreasing weight from your barbell... Also do some shrugs to built up your shoulders/neck

    Prevent nasty injuries by keeping your back straight and taking a good stand!

    Im 6'0" tall as you are, my weight is at about 162lbs/74kg - im doing lifts with 80/70/60/50kg in 3 triple drop sets with 12-16 reps Started with much less in the middle of last year

    First, it doesn't matter where other people stall at. Secondly, you didn't tell us enough about your diet to really comment there. You could double check your macros and make sure you are getting enough fats too. As Jason said, if you stall again next time you should deload and work back up, progress will come.

    You should have worked out your diet before you began the program. a 5x5, if you are bulking, requires a pretty aggressive bulk. If you are cutting then it's probably normal to stall fast.

    How long have you been doing 5x5, there is a possibility that you might have started the program to heavy which would lead to a stall as well.

    ^Agreed.

    If you're doing 5x5, start with the right numbers, and eat huge. I made some good progress in just 12 weeks because I ate enough to recover.

    I started in jan. did 2 weeks of just the bar to learn the exercises. Then started adding weights 2.5 kilos at a time, this started in early feb. So I don't think too heavy's possible.

    Ok so at least you started right.

    Try it again, if you miss the reps, deload it by 15% and work on building it back up.

    Also, what has your weight done since you started this program?

    You are stalling early bump your calories up 2-300 and see how you feel. Miss again then just drop down to 50kg and build back up as others have said 5x5 is an aggressive programme so eat accordingly to recover properly
