I have been doing GCZLP as its a mentally simple workout which I need at the moment but still allows me to lift some nice heavy weights and I like the progression how you never lower the weight.

Update is basically the same as ever, progressing on Bench, Squats moving slowly and struggling with deadlifts but looking to build back up over the next few months as I'm within 10% of my max lifts ever and I'm sure I can get that when I go back to concentrating on lifting. Got to move house before I can do that though.


Good to see you back buddy

PB's both bench related -
23rd Nov
Decline Bench
WU
20kg x 10, 60kg x 8, 80kg x 8, 100kg x 5
WO
120kg x 5, 140kg x 4, 160kg x 1, 165kg x 1

Felt strong that week so on my regular bench day on the 27th, I hit the following..
Bench
WU
20kg x 10, 60kg x 8, 80kg x 5
WO
105kg x 5, 112.5kg x 4, 120kg x 3, 125kg x 2, 132.5kg x 1, 145kg x 1, 150kg x 1

Both of those went up genuinely easy. No grinding or anything, which although is a bit "oh how much more could I have benched?!?" the actual feeling of knowing the reps were easy means I'm more than happy with them. Don't know about others but if I hit a PB and it literally takes every single bit of effort then I actually feel a bit deflated knowing I struggled and realistically should've gone a tad lighter. Whereas on these, hitting them so cleanly and quickly feels so much more rewarding.

Currently sat at 77.8kg bodyweight too, so agonisingly close to a double bw flat bench....

Goals for 2018 are -

160kg flat bench - current pb 150kg
180kg decline bench - current pb 165kg
200kg squat - current pb 172.5kg
250kg trap bar deadlift - current pb 213.5kg


Blimey, they’re some numbers mate. Very impressive for your body weight.
Good luck achieving the targets at the bottom

Haven’t been on this thread for ages!

Love doing 5x5 when I’ve had to have a break from the gym due to work or holidays etc. Gets you strong and fires the muscle memory into action pretty quick.

I tend to move more into bodybuilding type lifting most of the time (ie fail at 8-12reps, 4-5sets depending on exercise) but probably do a month of 5x5 two or three times a year when I start to plateau or have had a break from the gym.

Currently at

1RM bench 150kg
(5x5 at 130kg)

Squat
1RM dunno
(5x5 120kg Needs some Work, my weakest exercise by far!!!!!)

Deadlift (standard, no straps)
1RM 190
(5x5 155kg)

Military Press
1RM dunno
(5x5 80kg)

Not big numbers at all,
But I enjoy it and can certainly fill a t-short out nice
BW 92kg
BF is a steady 15%

Leebo, this is bl00dy . I was impressed with the lifts then I read your bodyweight and you have got the utmost respect from me for these lifts, awesome mate. My lifts are barely above yours and Im 30kgs heavier so I've got some work to do.

I don't know about others but this is why I started this thread, that is pure motivation right there. I'm pretty sure reading that is the only reason I just finished 122.5 for 3 sets of 10 reps in squats.

Ah cheers buddy, that means a lot!
It was down to you and Doug that got me started on the original 531 workout so credit to you both too! I still have the same spreadsheets you sent me, and the pdf’s from Doug. Even after several years now I still absolutely love this style of workout. Even though I’ve been constantly tweaking small bits, the bones are based on 531 and I’m still getting results year after year. I’ve given versions to several friends and they love it too, and have seen constant improvement.
Proper form, consistent approach to reps, small increments and realistic %’s and you cannot not get stronger!
