I have grip problem too, and I train it with shrug and farmer's walk. Maybe you can try it...

I will continue to follow your log. Nice work ! ;)

Thank you so much for the appreciation , December has been a little slow as you can see from the dates i am not getting chance to workout regularly but even i am happy with all my lifts i guess because of the extended rest between workouts i have been able to get to new PR's continuously without stalling as of yet .

You are most welcome to check in and chat

Cheers
Happy New Year / Happy Lifting

For grip I do things like walking on the treadmill holding dumbbells (10mins at a time), bar holds/hangs and Farmers Walks.

5x5 at almost 60Kg is really strong mate! I'm so impressed with your progress :) how much longer are you following stronglifts for? any plans for what you'll train with after you finish?

Yeah man even i get surprised that i managed to get this far in terms of strength , unfortunately it hasn't shown much in terms of aesthetics and my slower metabolism isn't helping much to get rid of flab from around the stomach .

I will still continue this program till i increase around 15 kgs more in all lifts maybe then i'l switch to something similar . I am still looking forward to your progress on 5/3/1 and maybe will take help from MF once done with this .

Hey mate , well i am enjoying training except for Squat , i am loving the progress with Bench and Deads but Squats are getting hard .
Also i am missing a workout partner i'd have progressed even better only if i had someone to do this workout with plus i am always little scared going under such a heavy bar lol

I am thinking of switching something up but need something very well laid out and simple like the stronglifts only .

Instead of gym yesterday i spent my day out in field with my colleagues on a company get together . The entire day was spent playing Soccer , Volley Ball and Cricket .
My legs are still sore from so much sport in one day and i can feel the stretch in my abs as well . But i really loved playing outdoors after a looong time .

i see where your coming from pal, i dont have a spotter and it can be a pain doin stuff like benches sometimes.............you dont feel like designing your own program mate?

sounds like fun doing all the sport! its nice to get outside and do something different isnt it? i bet the weather was nice with you also?

Shittiest workout ever , went to gym just on a cup of coffee barely finished my 3rd Set of Bench Press when my body kinda gave up , i wonder now was this because of empty stomach or what but felt really bad . Just gave up in between instead of pushing without any strength . I plan on eating like crazy today and get back to gym tomorrow morning hopefully it works out better.

I have ordered some protein and creatine from ON , hopefully should get them by weekend and start with it from Monday . Any tips on how to go about using them to maximize the result from the supplements ? This is my first time so some guidance will really help .

Cheers
