    Ok, I've been following the Bill Starr 5x5 for quite some time now. I have also worked in Judo/BJJ off and on, as well as some cardio involving running and kettlebells. Was starting to have trouble progressing, so I switched up to the Madcow Linear version a couple weeks ago.

    Height: 5'6"
    Weight: 165-170 (willing to go up to about 175)

    I'm currently in Afghanistan, and there seems to be a shortage of BJJ schools where I am, so I figured this is a great time focus on lifting heavy.

    I don't know my 1-rep maxes, but right now my lifts are looking like this for the past week:

    Liftng 3 times a week: Friday, Sunday, Tuesday (just to confuse people)

    FRIDAY:

    Bench: 135 x 5/ 165 x 5/ 185 x 5/ 225 x 5/ 245 x 5

    Squat: 135 x 5/ 165 x 5/ 185 x 5/ 225 x 5/ 245 x 5

    Dumbbell Row: 50 x 5/ 60 x 5/ 70 x 5/ 80 x 5/ 90 x 5 (This was the first week I used dumbbells instead of a barbell. I was rowing 210x5, but my form was becoming atrocious. I am going to use dumbells for Friday and use a barbell on Tuesday at a higher reps than normal. I had to switch this up to focus on my form because I could not do any more weight without risking injury.)

    Rope Pulldowns 80 x 10/ 90 x 10/ 100 x 10/ 110 x 6 (I know, I normally do weighted dips, but the gym here doesn't have a dip station. I'm in fucking Afghanistan. This was the second week doing rope pulldowns instead of dips.)

    Incline Sit-up: 0lbs x 15/ 25lbs x 12/ 25lbs x 12

    Russian Twists: 25lbs x 20/ 25lbs x 20/ 25lbs x 20


    SUNDAY

    Push Press: 135 x 5/ 135 x 5/ 145 x 5/ 170 x 4 (having trouble here)

    Deadlift: 135 x 5/ 225 x 5/ 275 x 5/ 325 x 5

    Squat: 135 x 5/ 185 x 5/ 185 x 5/ 185 x 5

    Pull-ups: 0 x 5/ 20lbs x 5/ 30lbs x 5/ 40lbs x 5



    TUESDAY

    Bench: 135 x 5/ 165 x 5/ 185 x 5/ 225 x 5/ 255 x 3/ 185 x 8

    Squat: 135 x 5/ 165 x 5/ 185 x 5/ 225 x 5/ 250 x 3/ 185 x 8

    Barbell Row 135 x 10/ 185 x 8/ 185 x 8/ 185 x 6 (Like I said before, I am focusing on form for ahwile before I attempt to go up in weight on the row)

    Alternating dumbbell curls: 45 x 20/ 50 x 16/ 55 x 14

    Side bends (that's what I call them, ev): 25 x 20/ 25 x 20/ 25 x 20

    Incline sit-ups: 0 x 15/ 25 x 10/ 25 x 10

    *I keep a 5 lbs discrepancy between my bench x3 on Tuesday and my bench x5 on Friday. So when I bench 255 x3 on Tuesday, when I lift on Friday, I bench 250 x5 as opposed to 255. It just works better for me.

    GOALS:
    DL- 400
    Bench- 300
    Squat- 300
