totally delayed progress photos. I took these about a week after I finished 12 weeks of Stronglifts 5x5 program. Clearly I admit I don’t look much different from the 12 weeks before, however, my strength gains are pretty awesome.

My PR’s are all for 5 sets of 5 except for Deadlift which goes for one set of 5. Oh and I’m currently at 127lbs. I was about 120 before the stronglifts program.

Squat= 220 lbs.

Deadlift= 225 lbs.

Bench Press= 95lb. This is really weak because I got an arm injury less than halfway into the program.

Military Press= 65 lbs. Also weak due to the arm injury.

Pendlay Rows= 100 lbs.

NOW, I am one week into a 6 week 20 rep squat program. Basically for 3 times a week I will be doing the following:

Squat x 20 (started at 130 lbs., adding 5 lbs every workout)

Pullovers 20 x 20 (more of a stretch than a lift)

Stiff legged Deadlifts x 15 (feelin em in the hams HARDCORE)

Bench Press 3 x 10

Pullovers 20 x 20

Pendlay Rows 3 x 10

Military Press 3 x 12

Funtimes, right?

I’m diggin it so far. The original diet that is supposed to go with this program is the drink a gallon of milk a day thing, but…i’m vegan. And even if I wasn’t, that sounds damn gross anyway. Basically, I’ll be sticking to my usual, however, TRYING to eat a little bit cleaner. I do go crazy with vegan pizza and stuff on the weekends, but I generally keep to getting AT LEAST 1g of protein per lb. of bodyweight which isn’t hard to do. I eat hella carbs because A: I love them. B: The last time I tried to cut them down I felt like I was going to wither away and die.

Having a very low body fat percentage is not really important to me. I’d rather be strong than cut. Luckily I’ve always had a pretty fast metabolism and with the amount of training I do, I stay pretty lean anyway. I’m not too concerned with getting a ripped ass 6 pack, and I don’t exactly see that happening with the way I eat anyway. Plus, I like having an ass, and legs that support me…and all that.

GOALS: The way my squat and deadlift numbers are looking, my boyfriend says I could compete in powerlifting soon. I thought about it and I think I’m down once I get my bench press up to a less embarrassing number. So, maybe in a year or so I’ll be looking into small powerlifting competitions around the state. For squat and deadlift, lifting twice my bodyweight is not that far away. So, I’m looking to get to pulling 300 lbs before I compete. As for bench, I would eventually like to reach pressing my bodyweight.

Sounds reasonable enough, eh?

thanks everyone!

the 225lb deadlift i have done for 5 reps, same for a 220lb squat.

I'm trying to look into any small powerlifting competitions in the MD area, let me know if you come across any!

Right now i'm 3 weeks into the 20 rep squat program and loving it. Just hit 170lbs for 20 reps. hopefully 175 tomorrow!

Did the 20 rep squat program for 6 weeks started with 130x20, ended with 200X20.

I'm now in the first week of the 5/3/1 powerlifting program.

It also looks like you have rock hard abs....did you do anything in particular for that or does it just come with the squats and deads??
