Actually its kinda fun just needs some conditioning to it as haven't done isolation in a while and a particular body part worked for 8-9 Sets Straight up ends up making it a little fatigued. Although its not as fun as going for maxes every other workout .

I would just summarize how my 2 months Stronglifts Round 2 went . I started on 29th April - 30th June .

The gains are not a lot considering i almost achieved 80-90% of it earlier when i ran the cycle its just that due to the gap i had to start again from middle .

Squat - 55kgs ( 3 x5 ) >>> 105kgs ( 1x3) 100kgs (2x5) 97.5kgs ( 3x5 )
Bench - 27kgs (5x5) >>> 67kgs (2x5) 64.5kgs (3x5)
Barbell Rows - 35kgs (5x5) >>>55 kgs ( 3x5 ) * Didnt realy put a lot of effort in these
Over Head Press - 30kgs (5x5) >>> 50kgs (3x5)
Deadlift - did not do a lot of these max i hit was 97kgsx5

This was my second time on the routin intial being Nov-Dec-Jan . Lifts were easier this time therefore i could progress more , specially squats . It did not follow the program word to word for example just doing 3x5 instead of 5x5 and adding some extra exercises but it did not really hamper the strength apart from a one or two bad day .

Supplements - Protein ( 1 scoop everyday post workout , morning on non workout days )
Creatine ( Along with protein )

Diet - I hit around 2500cal approx +/- 200cal everyday with around 100-130gms protein 70% of the time. Being a typical Indian diet it was more carb dominant which helped me gain around 3-4kgs weight in this period and some belly fat :(

*This info is just for anyone who is going through my thread and is thinking of doing this program . Its a good one but just don't go overboard with surplus calories and too much carbs , they dint help in my case leaving me in the end with lot of belly fat to take care of .

Wassup everyone ?

Work has been keeping me really busy last few days but I am still managing to hit the weights once every 4-5 days just to keep some strength levels . diet has been crappy not really planned anymore just going with 3-4 normal home cooked meals . Aim is to maintain 80-85% strength and drop a few kgs till August and then re build from there .

Cheers

Honestly bro I would love to but the scene here in India is not that good . There are very few inter city competitions . Strength Training is still not given due weightage :( .
But maybe someday if I get a chance I'd love too .
Seems like u looking inclined for it ?

The strength has kinda dropped with a lousy workout and diet but its okay .
