For 5x5, isn't the idea you stick with one weight, in your case 250 ish for all 25 reps, or have I misunderstood that this whole time?

Idk. First time doing it. Is there some reason you have to use the same weight? I always did the 10 X 10 with increasing weights.

Pretty sure I couldn't do 250 for all 25. I struggled with the last set.

GVT suggests you find a weight you can do for all 100 reps, so I assume 5x5 is the same, the point being max tax on the body. If you're increasing the weight then you aren't doing 5 worthwhile reps (in terms of max effort and gainz etc).
250 might not be the right weight, maybe 235. I suspect that if you did 235-240 for all 25 reps you would be quite a bit more sore.
If you could manage 250x5 after 4 sets before that, then those 215 and 220x5 were probably very easy. Just a thought is all.

No. 5 addresses the 10x10, not that it's the only way...

I did the 10 X 10 with the same weight at first. Got good lifts like that but upping it made late sets very very intense. Got my best squats doing it that way.

Already thinking about changing the 5 X 5 to a reverse pyramid. Might try your way first. Don't think there's only one way with any of it.

I agree there's plenty of ways of doing it, I just noticed yours and was curious.

Still mixing it up on the training. I did the 10 X 10 on the bench today. this way it will be 5 days when I try some heavies. Will probably change to the same weight for all ten. I was doing this with 175 when I got the 345. Haven't done any real heavies since the injuries so should be interesting.

Still did the periworkout carbs. The creatine is loaded. Pumps were extreme today. Will do the ab, hip & calf thing tomorrow.

Didn't go to heavy with the preworkout carbs yesterday. Since I was doing abs and hips didn't wanna get that crazy pump. Did take the creatine tho. Carbed up good today. Took the day off cause I'm trying to get the car fixed. This guy came and looked at it and didn't Rob me lol. Told about someone trying to steal it with a screwdriver in another thread. Will be good to have it on the road soon. I tryed but it was too much for me.

I did the preworkout drink with the carbs, creatine & apple cider vinegar. I had my green monster and was ready to train legs and didn't have my wraps in the gym bag. Even tho I wasn't going heavy, there's no way that I'm not wrapping my knees. So I trained chest & arms. The wraps weren't at home so they're probably at the gym anyway.

Did 5 X 5 instead of training heavy. Don't think that I would have done well anyway.

Close grip bench:
135 X 8 X 2

Flat bench:
215 X 5
220 X 5
225 X 5
235 X 5
250 X 5

Cybex machine flies:
170 X 10 X 2

Cable curls:
105 X 10 X 2

Incline curls:
40s X 8 X 2

Cybex tricep press:
150 X 8 X 3

Cybex conc curl:
75 X 10 X 3

I'm still doing the preworkout creatine & carbs and energy drink while lifting. Ended up just missing leg workout all together. I never did find my wraps & am ordering some more. Will train them Friday and just use squat press until I get my new wraps. They were old anyway. Got some Harbinger red line in my cart.

I ended up doing delts and back yesterday. Going to switch back to normal schedule next week.

Training yesterday:

Incline bench:
185 X 10 X 3

One arm machine lat raises:
80 X 10 X R&L
90 X 10 X R&L
100 X 10 X R&L

Cybex reverse flies:
100 X 10 X 3

Machine pullovers:
140 X 8 X 2

Pulldowns:
175 X 10 X 3

Supinated grip pulldowns (I changed machine rows to these):
170 X 7
190 X 6
210 X 4

Today's workout was chest:
Flat bench:
175 X 10 X 10

10 degree chest:
120 X 10 X 3
I changed to 10 X 10 using same weigh. Monday will be less volume than the 5 X 5 so I can do some heavier weighs.

Libido is good. It's not crazy high but not down either. Kinda cool because the dien was killing it. The epi-andro brought it back up. It handles the water retention side too.

I didn't do the preworkout thing because I just did fasted cardio today. Haven't done cardio for awhile because I'm trying to gain. The epi-andro dries you out so well it's hard to even Lean gain. Think the strength is fixing to go up really well. Leverage from gains will help with that so I'm trying.

I've dropped the peptides to help with elbow pain. GH makes stuff that is inflamed hurt more. Take huperzine in the morning and kratom here and there so it is still elevated. The DAC probably hasn't cleared yet.

I took the huperzine with morning sups so the somatostatin inhibition thing was going on. Then I took 2.5 grams of kratom. Didn't take creatine because I wanted to stay fasted. Don't want leg pumps on treadmill anyway. Probably had a good GH pulse going on from the kratom.

So I did 4.1 miles on the treadmill. Leg pumps were nasty anyway. Probably a combo of gear and creatine. I'm taking my creatine right now.

I'm eating carbs with most meals now. Really working to get some Lean gains. I will eventually go back to keto. It's pretty much a lifestyle for me.

Today was day 17. I did the 120 grams of periworkout carbs. Threw in a scoop of protein just because I don't seem to be putting on any lbs. I can tell that I'm bigger. Guess I'm repartitioning even tho I was fairly Lean to start.

I did legs. Had to just use squat press because I lost my knee wraps. Not gonna squat without them. Watched a guy bench 365 for 2. That was pretty cool. There's a lot of powerlifters at the gym where I train now.

Squat press:
315 X 10
405 X 8
495 X 6
545 X 4
595 X 2

Standing leg curl:
70 X 10 X 3 X R&L

Leg ext:
80 X 10 X 3 X R&L

Standing calf raises:
230 X 40 X 3

Really cool on the water retention.
Do you see this compound actually assisting in muscle growth? Or more of a recomp/maintaining?

It's got a really good anti-estrogenic effect. That keeps the gains dry. I'm getting mostly a recomp effect. The goal is lean gains and strength anyway so it's workin. Used it before for cutting and it's great for that. Maintains muscle extremely well. My body is very hard all over and should be testing strength soon. I've only gained a few but it looks like a lot more.

I did the cardio thing again today. Was semi-fasted this time. Had eaten earlier but had fairly empty stomach. Did the kratom pre again. Got the leg pumps but managed to get in the 4.1 again. Didn't go as fast but I'm a Cooper guy anyway so as long as I get the wotk in...

I was going to train abs and low back\hips today but getting some pain in the hips. This is probably from the squat press. This was the reason I dropped them before. Will eventually go back to POS training on the legs. I'm a special needs kid so I have to do things a little different.

I will train on flat tomorrow and see what I can do. Got some more dmz gonna take it to three tabs ed and see how strength goes with that. Getting really good strength without the leverage from water bloat is pretty cool. Did this more on machine bench since I had the injuries. Wanna see how I can do with true free weight.
