Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice on deadlifts. I've been doing SL 5x5 since mid-November or so and am up to 125 on my deadlifts. I had to do a deload after being sick for 3 weeks so haven't progressed super fast on these. Today at 125 was the first time I had to use the over/under grip, as doing both overhand felt like…
Juno you like to lift
Ok if I start a June thread? Squats 5x5 @ 120 Bench press 5x5 @ 70 Assisted pullups 3x5 @ -115 I'm starting a small fat loss coaching group through Eat Train Progress, so hopefully I can lose some weight while rebuilding my strength! Wish me luck.
May we all hit PRs (May lifting thread)
It's May! And in Philly, we skipped straight from winter to summer this week. 50 degrees on Sunday, 89 this Thursday. So long, spring. I've started walking/strollering to the gym and back again, trying to add some more steps and a little extra calorie burn. It's a mile and change each way, with lots of hills, so it does…
May the gainz be with you (May workout thread)
I hope no one minds me starting a new thread! First day of Wendler-ish for me (using SideSteel's training plan from the ETP group). Squats: 5 @ 105, 5 @ 115, 5 +2 @ 130 Lat pulldowns: 2x10 @ 55, 3x10 @ 50 Deadlifts: 2x8 @ 95, 1x10 @ 95 Hanging knee raises: 5x10
What does everyone wear to do your lifts in? I've been wearing hi-top Chucks for everything, but lately I've developed a deep blood blister on the tip of one toe from friction, and starting to develop another regular blister on the inside of the same toe. Chucks are narrow and my feet are not, so I'm thinking about…
When did you move on from SL 5x5?
Hey ladies, as the title states, I'm wondering how long people stay with SL 5x5, and how you knew when it was time to do something else? I'm currently squatting and deadlifting 68-71% of my body weight and my OHP hasn't moved up since week 2. I stayed at the same weight for squats for all 3 workouts this week and hitting 5…
Hi all, I'm preparing to start Stronglifts 5x5 at my local gym. I've done at home body weight and light (10-15 lb) dumbbell work at home, but I'm really looking forward to lifting heavy. I've seen a number of threads on MFP poking fun at or complaining bitterly about people doing rude/offensive/clueless things in the…
LCHF and kids
Hello all. I am two months into eating LCHF and am really enjoying it. I'm losing weight, my husband is very supportive, and we've found lots of new recipes that make it easy to eat this way. I also have a toddler, and she eats what we eat. She loves the LCHF recipes we make and is even starting to show a bit of a…
Keto and PCOS/hypothyroid
I am just beginning to embrace a keto lifestyle and was hoping to hear from some others who have had success losing weight with PCOS and/or hypothyroid while eating keto. I'm easing into it because it's a big change for me, so my macros are about 20/20/60. Is that too lax for a real effect? If you've lost weight, has it…
