It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

I know you're probably used to seeing your abs and oblique lines(w.e you call it),but don't worry about the fat, I have never seen my lower abs in my life, YET.

Just keep lifting and eating heavy, no isolations, and like luder said I've seen more growth on 5x5 than anything.

honestly i can't relate to your guys' upper body + arms gains from stronglifts/SS.
i just came out of it looking like a centaur

but then again, i made very little bench/press gains. must have done it wrong

You probably didn't eat enough

200g+ of protein is no joke. You have to work at it every single day.

I'm trying out Greyskull LP right now. I like this approach better.

Did some modifications though

A:
Flat BB bench 2x5, 1x5+
DB incline bench 2x5, 1x5+
Dips 2x5, 1x5+
BB curls 2xfail

B:
Military press 2x5, 1x5+
DB shoulder press 2x5, 1x5+
Chins 2x5, 1x5+
DB rows 2x5, 1x5+

I'm not a fan of the excessive fat gain on Rippetoe's diet. Even Mehdi doesn't think that's necessary for progression. I think it's much more conscious and reasonable. Lots of fruits and veggies. Carbs only post workout.

Mehdi's Example Diet:
Spoiler!


Edit:
Sorry should have made myself clear, A and B will be rotated but these will be concrete

Monday
Squat 2x5, 1x5+
Wednesday
Deadlift 1x5
Friday
Squat 2x 5, 1x5+

Damn, Mehdi's English needs some work. "Roman" lettuce, "ground round", etc.

Where are the squats and deadlifts in your workout?

So your modifications were to remove squats and deadlifts?

Oops! My bad, forgot to mention the program goes like this:

Rotate A/B and do squats/deadlifts at the end on their designated days

Monday
Squat 2x5, 1x5+
Wednesday
Deadlift 1x5
Friday 2x5, 1x5+

so tomorrow my day will look like this:

A:
Flat BB bench 2x5, 1x5+
DB incline bench 2x5, 1x5+
Dips 2x5, 1x5+
BB curls 2xfail
Squats 2x5, 1x5+

Removing 2 of the big three lifts is not very reasonable...
I suggest just trying out the same program I'm on man if you're really worried about the arm gains.

If I understood it correctly, I don't think he's really removing them, but rather, rotating them around for each session of the week... Honestly, the program looks fine to me.. Doing compound movements first and putting isolations at the end is essentially what he should be goin for..

You should be fine in terms of the program... Now worry more about executing the proper technique during those exercises so that your muscles are being worked properly.

Hm interesting, my bad. Did not see this. I guess this could work, just remember to stick to the program if you wanna test the results. Don't give up halfway if you get discouraged.

Ran half marathon in 1hr 42 mins 6 secs on Sunday. Legs are feeling it today.

Thinking of starting a 4 day routine:

Legs
Shoulders
Chest
Back

Going to start 5x5 today. I'm also considering doing HIIT/cardio in between days. Or does my body need the rest?

Mon/Wed/Sat - Lift
Tue/Thur - Cardio
Fri/Sun - Rest
