GingerThor Posted June 16, 2018 Report Share Posted June 16, 2018 Hi folks, I am 34, 6'1 and weight about 89kg and have been following Stronglifts for about 3 months and have seen improvements in strength and physique, my best weights were 90kg squat for 5x5, 100kg deadlift for 1x5, 47.5kg OHP for 3x5, 70kg bench press for 5x5 (this was in a 3d Smith machine so might not be a true representation as if id done it on a regular bar and bench). I am beginning to plateau a little bit and the sessions are becoming really long due to the rest periods between sets so a bit of boredom has set in with going the gym. I am looking to mix my routine up a little bit and i would like to combine weight training and bodyweight training. I was looking at the Greyskull LP strength program, has any one used or had any success with this program? Or i was thinking of doing my own A/B split which would look like:- A Barbell Squat 3x5 OHP 3x5 Barbell Row 3x5 Pushup variation 3x8-12 Pull up/chin ups variation 3x5-8(depending on difficulty) Core work B Deadlift 1x5 (building up with warm up sets) Bench Press 3x5 Bodyweight Squat Variation 3x5-8 (depending on difficulty) Pull up/chin ups variation 3x5-8(depending on difficulty) Bodyweight dips 3x5-8 (will work up to weighted dips) Core work Does this seem like a ok/balanced split, my goals are to improve strength and gain some hypertrophy? Any feedback or advice would be really appreciated Quote Link to comment
