    Hey, thank you for all the advice. I'm going to try my tweak to what you said for at least a month and just see how I've it. I did my first session tonight and really enjoyed it much better doing the...

    I'm bit confused why you said 2x5 but then put 5x5 next to the movements. I will look up Grey Skull

    But thank you for the ideas and advice.
    It got me thinking of just dropping the weight on my...

    28 years old. 6 foot 151 pounds or so. Started at 143ish. Started working out February 6th, so 3 months now. I have been following the Strong Lifts 5x5 program, with added isolations (3x10-15) of...

    I don't need to see my past thread because once again it was a question about ALTERING the 5x5 program. Which I ended up NOT doing if you read the thread.

    When I made this thread 2.5 months later...

    Thank you, man. I mean that at least is something from your own experience. And at least it is attempting to help. I appreciate it.

    The thing is you never gave me anything I did want to hear or not want to hear.

    Your first reply gave nothing but mocking on how long or short my original post was. That was it. Even though in my...

    If it's prescribed that way then one would assume that is the way it's being done, unless otherwise mentioned.

    And 3 vs 4 days would not be more relevant than the injury itself. But anyway, thank...

    I said I would TRY to keep it short. Once I started typing that is just where it ended up. That is fairly short considering it discusses an injury and excercise options. I'd rather explain with...
  • Your advice and opinion on this. Which excercise?

    28 years old. I will try to keep this short.

    I started lifting on Feb 6th. Been doing StrongLifts 5x5. Well, I did it. About 1.5 to 2 weeks ago I guess I injured my back because my sciatica nerve...

    Nah, it's not mostly fat. A beginner can gain the max of 2 pounds of muscle a month for a while. Also, ligament growth, and glycogen storage, etc...and of course fat.

    So yeah, a bit was fat but...

    Why does my bar not sound very safe?

    It was just the old collar made out of cast iron that cracked when I over tightened the set screw. The bar itself was not effected.

    Today I put two...

    Hey, thank you for the reply. Yes that is what I am talking about. Since I didn't have time to wait in the maile for anything I just did what a country boy does and went by tractor supply and bought...

    Never mind. Can't post a link until 50 posts. This makes 18. Guess I'll just hope it's ok, and risk it. I have watched many videos and followed all the tips but I am still not sure if my form is ok...

    Is this form ok or terrible? I really can't tell. I am becoming obsessive about form to the point it's making this not even fun anymore. I am trying so hard not to wink my lower back and I still...

    Thank you. Yeah, I guess I am going to switch back and just do the 3 days, and maybe sometimes do 4 if I am feeling really good. One place I am already struggling is Overhead Press. The OP seems to...
