    Height: 5ft'9
    weight: 245lbs

    My goals are simply to be as strong as possible and later to cut my fat way down. For the next 8 weeks i will be doing the Bill Star 5x5. Any tips or advice is always appreciated. I am a very large guy with a very wide frame. I do not gain weight very fast and can lose up to 30lbs in three months, ive done it before. Ive been back to the gym for about a month now doing curl monkey routines until i found the S&P on sherdog.

    Add 5lbs each time you get all the reps, when you miss the reps try again if you still miss the reps do a deload (take 10-15lbs off and start again). Once youve done a couple deloads and still getting stuck move on to a more advanced program.

    You should be good until 1.5x bodyweight roughly, Im currently at about 1.2x bodyweight for 5x5 and still making progress on this program.

    Good #s on Mil Press. On your Deadlift, if grip is failing, try a mixed grip- one hand over the bar, one hand under. Double overhand will work your grip so it will adjust, but to get those last sets, if you need to, use a mixed grip and the bar won't want to roll out of your hands.

    I actualy tried that and it still failed to hold the bar. I think mainly its cuz i have only started monday griping heavy with the dynamic rows and think its will take a few weeks for my grip to catch up with what im doing. It ddidnt feel to bad at first but they got tired fast. so i think it might be from how hard ive worked this week and it just needs time to catch up.

    Are wrist wraps worth getting, ive heard they cuz your grip to suffer in the end.

    I read a post by a mod, not sure which one, who said as long as you're adding weight to the bar in a progressive manner, there is no reason to change one's program. You just keep going til you stop adding weight like you used to. Makes sense to me, and many other here.

    damn man ur huge. for grip problems you can try the hook grip as well. Basically you wrap ur thumb around the bar like a strap and hold it tight with your fingers. Hurts like a bitch at first but you'll get used to it.

    nice numbers

    Yeah - the goal of any program is to keep improving. If you're improving then...well: "If it ain't broke..."

    WORKOUTGUY - Your name annoys me, I think I'll change it to "Brick Shithouse".

    I think he restarted it. I'm pretty sure you can change the title just by editing the first post. Also, this title is much better (IMO).
