    Yes, 2 months is way too early to change things up. While my progress was slow after the first 2 months, I was definitely continuing to build muscle when in a small caloric surplus. Wait at least...

    OP's experience seems similar to mine, though I stuck with F5 Novice for 6 months. After 2 months my progress was much slower - I would fail a lift twice, deload, reduce the load by 15%, build back...

    Seems unlikely I'll reach my goal at this stage, but the scale is still going in the right direction, just slower than I would like. Starting to get some ab definition now, which is always nice.

    Have you stalled by the program's definition of a stall:

    *Legitimate stall- After deloading (taking 4-7 days completely off), dropping 15% (reset) and working back up you cannot break your...

    35kg seems to be a real sticking point, plus I'm cutting which certainly isn't helping. Crazy that adding just 2.5kg has dropped my final set AMRAP by 5 reps. Thinking I need to switch back to the...

    Increased my deficit by 250 calories, adherence was good this week, but I had a night at the pub yesterday. Didn't overeat, but the food was rich and I had a couple of pints. Hoping to drop a whole...

    Why would you want to eat a pound of chicken breast? That sounds like torture to me, unless it's deep fried and/or with some kind of delicious sauce and lots of rice or noodles.

    Nothing to disagree with there, but F5 Novice is a sizable volume increse over SS - 48 weekly sets vs 23-25 (although much of that extra volume is accessory work).

    He said he's skinny-fat - it could definitely be the case. I had a 36" waist (and 12" arms) at 170lb and 6'1" before I got into shape .

    Makes sense, which is why I suggested using the slower progression of the UL program (add a rep one week and weight the next). You could also just go straight to Fierce 5 Upper Lower, but OP said he...

    Is it just me, or would Fierce 5 Novice be a good stepping stone after Starting Strength?

    Slightly slower progression (which you could slow further by using the progression from the UL), same...

    Nothing to disagree with there, which is why I said bench and OHP, not rows. I row plenty, just prefer it with higher reps.

    Interesting that everyone has pulls/chins as the least fatiguing so far. For me they're #3 after squats and Deadlifts, but I treat them as a major compound lift (weighted and done in the same rep...

    Most fatiguing compound lifts

    Out of the following compound lifts, which do you find the most fatiguing? You can answer this based on set-to-set fatigue, time to recover (set to set and workout to workout) or any combination of...

    Haha, did you give it a go? I'm curious because I know I have long femurs and a short torso, so I'd be interested to see what 'normal' is.
