    LifterWest's Fierce 5 Workout Journal

    I ran StrongLifts 5X5 in 2018 for ~ 6 months. These were my numbers at the end. Body weight went from 160 lbs to 177 lbs.

    Squat - 255 lbs 3X3
    Bench - 125 lbs 5X5
    Deadlift - 265 lbs 1X5
    Barbell Row - 110lbs 5X5 (developed tennis elbow which prevented me from performing this exercise)
    OHP - 92.5 lbs 5X5

    Somethings I learnt
    1. My lower body is way stronger than my upper body.
    2. Get a Thermabar for your tennis elbow. It works like magic!
    3. Film your workouts every now and then. You might think your back is straight but it may not!
    4. It's hard to gain weight eating healthy foods. Beyond a level, I had to really stuff it in to gain weight. You will put on fat no matter what though. Have faith that a cut will take care of it!

    I could sense fatigue building up. My last deload week was in early December when I went to Disneyland. It wasn't a typical deload in that I walked and carried my kids around a lot and ended up super tired at the end of the week. This week I plan to lift at 50% weights and work on perfecting my form.

    Workout A

    Squat 3x5 105 lbs
    Bench Press 3x6 75 lbs
    Pendlay Row 3x9 75 lbs
    Reverse Flyes 3x11 10 lbs
    Calf Raises 2x15 75 lbs
    Skull Crushers 2x11 10 lbs

    Not bad progress there in 6 months, especially the weight gain. Your point #4 is dead on.

    Thanks Rjeezie! Proactively gaining weight was a very unnatural experience the first time. My wife thought I was nuts. This time it feels quite natural.
