Thanks vege.

 

No great secret. Just lift heavy, slowly & steadily add weight to the bar, eat a lot, get some good rest.

 

Here's a few comparisons. Didn't really know how to pose when I started, and still don't really know how..

Impressive!

 

When you're doing 5 x 5 do you count warm up sets as a legit set or do you do the same (max working) weight for 5 sets once you've warmed up to it?

 

I'm actually doing HST but I have read others saying they switch back and forth and I've never learned about 5 x 5.

 

Also, do you have any problems doing heavy weight for 5 reps with things like the squat?

There's a few ways to do 5 x 5.

 

One way is to do a couple of warm up sets and then do 5 x 5 with the same weight.

Another way is to warm up and then do 5 x 5 with the weights increasing each set.

Another way might be two warm up sets, followed by 3 x 5 with the same weight.

 

Sets of 5 reps with squats are more tiring for me than say, sets of 5 with bench or overhead press, and I would say more tiring than sets of 5 deadlifts, especially when going heavy.
