Well the kids showed up today with the 5X5 app installed on their ipods ready to go. I showed them the correct form for the 3 exercises today (Squat, OH Press, Deadlift) and how to use the app. They listened well and were very thankful. One of the kids said his mom might pay me for helping to train them haha. Bonus!

They seemed very disappointed when I said they won't be doing any curls for at least a month haha.

Kid one is 6'5" around 270lbs. Big fucking kid.
Kid two is about 5'8 and stocky as fuck but not muscular. Both of them could be pretty big lifters judging by their body types. Will be interesting to watch their progress. They both want to lose weight so I'm also giving them a direction in dieting as well. I have them doing Cardio after each workout and on the Tues, Thursday off days. I also have them doing Pullup Negatives (neither of them can do a single pullup as they are heavy for their size) after each 5X5 workout.

Berz out.

They are very lucky to have someone help them out, especially from someone with good experience

I was very fortunate to have a strength & conditioning class back at my old high school where I learned all the basic compound exercises. If I didn't, I'd be afraid to even think where my legs are today.

But I lulz at people who only train their upper body and have legs the size of my arm.

Isn't the symmetrical bodybuilders calves supposed to be the same circumference as their arms? Mine are within 1/2" But that means nothing when it's less then 16"s haha

supersets of triceps and bicep exercises = amazing pumps

decided to try that 315 dl for reps and i started with double overhand for 3 reps then switched to hook grip for another 3. delt and bicep veins were popping out like worms

I never heard of that before actually. Just measured and it did come out to be the same size of my arm -14.5"

But I never took calf training seriously until this week. I looked behind me in the mirror with shorts on, and was ashamed. Hitting calves 2-3x a week now; I hope they grow bigger than my arms actually.

Reached my summer goal of dead lifting 315 lbs tonight, felt pretty good considering I just started lifting in June. Problem now is that the callus on my left hand tore open

i tore my calluses 2 weeks ago, but i fixed my grip by gripping ON the calluses instead of in the middle of my palm.
it feels a lot better, you don't feel like all your calluses are going rip off
there was a rippetoe video about it somewhere

I was totally not feeling it today. I blame it on Gold's shitty music and I don't like bringing my own.

Question for you all:

After a workout, i always seem a bit light-headed, and i get a very, very minor headache, and my stomach starts to feel upset, high volume or high weight.

I usually have food 2-3 hours before, and i always get an eight hour sleep or more.
Ironically, when i do not eat or get enough sleep, i don't get lightheaded.
I consume at least a litre of water during the workout.
Stats are 5'8, 140lbs. The only thing i can think of is not getting enough vegetables/fruits a day

Thoughts?

it might be a very small exertional headache. practice your breathing techniques. for example when pushing a heavy squat make sure you're slowly breathing out still

i'm 5'7 140lbs
this is my routine:

i go monday, wednesday, friday, saturday
but saturday is optional, i do it to work on upper body because that's my weak point
i did not include most of my saturday routine in the list

i do 3x5 low-bar squats monday-friday
3x5 bench monday-saturday <- because i have a weak chest
1x5 deadlifts monday and friday
weighted pull-ups as many as i can for 3 sets monday and friday
weighted chin-ups as many as i can for 3 sets wednesday and saturday
5x3 power cleans on wednesdays
3x5 military press wednesdays and saturdays

may not be the best setup, but it's working for me

squats went from 95x5 to 260x5
deadlifts went from 115x5 to 315x2 / 280x5
bench went from 65x5 to 135x5
pullups/chinups went from 2/3 bodyweight in 1 set to 20+ at bodyweight or 45lbs weighted x 5
and gained 30lbs+ bodyweight
