Easy but probably enough muscle soreness to keep it slow.
Same as squats
I did made a mistake previous workout by doing this with only 20k, it had to be 30k. Well makes a difference… I really felt my back. Somethign I never felt before. No pain, just the stretch in my back….September 28, 2016 at 12:57 pm #192657VoidhaunterParticipant
I probably need to look on how to warm up soon because the weight i’m lifting starts dading up by now.
HEAVY!!! I almost didn’t make it. So I Will go slow on this exercise from now. Also: warm up
I felt awkward today doing this. Don’t know why. Probably because there where to much hot guys in the room, my hormones where clearly jumping. Tried to clear my mind but it was difficult because I was so energetic due to the workout. Maybe something to look at (state of mind) in my other journal. Next time better, hu?September 28, 2016 at 6:42 pm #192662JaxKeymaster
Definitely warm up. And not hormonally

Haha Jax. I won’t! No, but seriously. I feel a lot better lately probably because I’m working out. (Healthy body = healthy mind) so I guess it is time to work on controlling my mind and thoughts better!
Quote on warming up from the program:Quote:Start with two sets of five reps with the empty bar on Squats, Bench and Overhead Press. Then add 10-20kg (25-45lb) and do 2-3 reps. Keep adding 10-20kg, doing 2-3 reps on each set, until you’ve reached your 5×5 weight. Don’t rest between these warmup sets to keep your workout short. This means you don’t do any warmup sets for the Squat, Bench and Overhead Press the first weeks of StrongLifts 5×5 because your 5×5 work weight is the empty bar or close above it. But once you’re lifting 30kg/65lb for 5×5, warmup by doing two sets with the empty bar for the Squats, Bench Press and Overhead Press. Empty bar warmup sets don’t work for Barbell Row and Deadlift. The bar has to start at mid-shin level for proper form, you can’t hold it in the air. Plus, since you’re doing compound exercises, your whole body is warmed up already by the time you have to Barbell Row or Deadlift. So you can start heavier here.September 30, 2016 at 10:21 am #192672VoidhaunterParticipant
I really felt this in my right calf. I’m happy I can rest two days now so my legs will have some healing time. Did a 2km walk which felt great. I have to add my calfs aren’t anymore stiff and hard al the time since doing these squats. Which is somethign that happens a lot to me.
still figuring this one out, I think I have to be explosive when pulling it up and slowly reverse the moment to have the best possible movementOctober 9, 2016 at 3:58 pm #192694VoidhaunterParticipant
went well, I finally feel the weight is challenging me.
I arched my back to much, feels like a small strain in my back. Well, I try to swap to overhead press.
Couldn’t do the DL
BW ex with rests of 3 minutes
10 push ups
10 push ups
10 push ups
I certainly became stronger since i couldnt even do 10 push ups in one time a month ago
FIRST TIME!!! Felt great! Don’t understand what I was so scared about.
need to look at form again, I felt a few times it wasn’t good.October 9, 2016 at 4:00 pm #192695VoidhaunterParticipant
I’m thinking about making my OWN program, a mix between stronglifts and starting strength. Stronglifts is good, but has a lot of pressure on the back by doing deadlifts AND rows. Starting streng only does the deadlifts. Also, by looking into both programs I think and feel like I should trust Mark Rippetoe (SS) more than Mehdi (SL). Mark is 1. Older and has more experience, 2. Has more scientific knowledge about the body than Mehdi.October 10, 2016 at 8:27 pm #192699VoidhaunterParticipant
had to take two minutes rest between the sets, this was getting really heavy
5×5 45kOctober 13, 2016 at 5:30 pm #192700VoidhaunterParticipant
Form was good! I didn’t felt the pain I did with previous deadlift.October 14, 2016 at 9:12 am #192702VoidhaunterParticipant
