Yeah man! And considering the number of sets you're doing also you could potentially lift a hell of a lot more :)
The weather pretty good right now eh, so let's hope it stays that way ;) I need to change my wheels to thinner ones as its currently jusst so slow! So once I've done that I'll clock a few miles.. Depending on leg/butt soreness from squats bahaha

Ps after you finish stronglifts you should test your maxes and see how strong you've got :D

Just get yourself warmed up and then try and deadlift/squat/bench as much as you think you can for one rep, if you can do it add more weight until you can't lift it at all. Make sure you have a spotter though ahha, you won't need one for deads though obviously :)

I would say just give yourself as much time as you need, normally I take at least 2-3 minutes :)

Sweet, I've pencilled it in for the end of may as I won't be upping my lifts in June just keeping them the same as I'll be cutting but trying not to lose lean mass, would that be the right thing to do?

Sounds good to me dude :) for warm up I would say just a couple of light/medium sets would be okay around the 6-8 rep range, sorry for the late reply dude!

Don't worry about it man:) what kind of weight would you recommend for the warm ups? I don't want to go too heavy and sell my self short on the heavy lifts but I don't want to go too light and not be warmed up enough

Jeeeeez I'm not sure man, start with a real light weight and then on the second warmup set do a weight you know you can perform for 6-8 reps, you can always do some more if you don't feel warmed up enough but it shouldn't be a problem man :) I'm looking forward to seeing how you do

You and me both brother, would the warm ups I'm doing at the minute be ok? I've just realised I've got critical mass the same day as I'm gonna be working out my maxes, I'm gonna be dead by the end haha
