I've been working on the 5x5 program suggested by Bill Starr, and had a few questions about possible tweaks to my program: 1) I read that a person isn't supposed to deadlift more than every other week. Would it make any sense to alternate between full deadlifts and straight leg deadlifts by week? Or was the deadlifting thing I read misinformed? 2) Bill Starr mentions that if you feel like your OHP is lagging behind your bench you can switch and instead of a Monday/Friday bench and wednesday OHP, you can do a M/F OHP and wednesday bench. If I were to do that would I still do only 4 sets / 3-5 minute rests for OHP each time (as suggested in the original program in the S&P FAQ) or do the 5x5 with 5-7 min rests/pyramids on monday? Also would you say my OHP is seriously lagging behind (enough to switch) if I max bench 260 for 5 reps and max OHP 125ish for 5 reps? Thanks in advance! BTW just switched to 5x5's / working my legs at all, and I must say it is kind of amazing... Though I do regret no longer being allowed to throw feces at zoo-goers like I could back when I was a curlmonkey :icon_chee.
