Bench 5*150,5*165,5*180,5*200,5*220
barbellrow 5*120,5*135,5*150,5*165,5*180

I think I'm going to have to lower my squat a bit, might have to drop to 15%. bench and Barbellrow were good.

That's a lot of maxing for one day. You might have had some higher numbers if you spread them over a couple days. Just a thought.

Good luck w/ the program. I really liked it.

Aren't you supposed to do what ever you found out your 5 rm to be you do that for 5 sets, Not just random weight with 5 reps.

You'd never be able to do your 5RM for 5x5....

You're supposed to start lower than your 5RM and progress over a number of weeks....hopefully being able to do a weight close to, or over, your 5RM for 5x5 as you near the end of the program. IF I remember correctly.

Your right Kane and BG5150 is right, I think your numbers could be higher if you did your testing for 5RM more spread out. That way you have a better gauge of how the program truly worked for you.

Good points everyone. I remember it took me an entire week divided into only 2 workouts. But, if you're running single factor 5x5, then you're still in great shape. Just drop those weights down and start slowly building up from there. You shouldn't really be close to your 5 RM until 4-6 weeks IMO.

I dropped 2.5% per week , so I'm starting 10% below my 5RM. In 4 weeks I should be there and after that, all gains.

BG5150- You made a good point, I never thought about doing it over a few days. So they might be off alittle bit.
But all I did that day was a quick warm-up then my max's. I kind of had a good idea of what they would be, so I was just trying to confirm it.
