So, does this Stronglifts 5x5 program actually work? I'm gonna need some stories here...
Everything that uses compounds, with progressive loads, would induce growth. Can't give you anecdotal evidence though.
[QUOTE=JonniXD;36276560]So, does this Stronglifts 5x5 program actually work? I'm gonna need some stories here...[/QUOTE] Ive done it, it worked for me. Went from 120x5 squat to 240x5 in several months, mind you I was struggling for a bit with lower back issues, but I have improved my form and strength a lot, so its not a big deal anymore. My main issue is eating enough, but I am getting over it.
[QUOTE=JonniXD;36276560]So, does this Stronglifts 5x5 program actually work? I'm gonna need some stories here...[/QUOTE] Bro, I don't want to shit on you... But do you think it'd be such a famous program if it [i]didn't[/i] work? Give it a go for a couple months and see how it treats you. If you're looking to pack on some strength. Just remember that it's the opposite of hypertrophy so you'll put on a minimal amount of mass.
made some new gains today, incredible feeling
I dont think anyone remembers this, but a few months ago i made a post about starting lifting and eating better. Well that lasted for a few weeks before i fell back into being a depressed little bitch and gained everything back. I did start up again tho and so far ive lost 12kg and it feels pretty good man
Best of luck to you, friend...

[QUOTE=Seith;36322802][/QUOTE] not squatting at all = not squatting at all squatting on smith = diminished gains, but hey good for beginners bad form = enjoy destroying your body
[QUOTE=djshox;36330520]not squatting at all = not squatting at all squatting on smith = diminished gains, but hey good for beginners bad form = enjoy destroying your body[/QUOTE] Squatting on smith = your body WILL get fucked up by doing this Seriously, I do not advocate the smith machine for anyone, especially beginners learning to squat. That is, unless you like being forced into unnatural movements therefore getting knee/back pain and also the fact that the weight you're squatting on a smith machine doesn't translate over to a free barbell.
Just L2squat. Its better to not hurt yourself at all and make gainz. l2think
[QUOTE=djshox;36330520]not squatting at all = not squatting at all squatting on smith = diminished gains, but hey good for beginners bad form = enjoy destroying your body[/QUOTE] if the form isn't ridiculous it would just mean not as much gained (like half squats or something) if it's making your body move in the wrong way, you will die [editline]15th June 2012[/editline] Also what Qeef said
tsk tsk implying that hack squats aren't a superior alternative and much safer. [editline]15th June 2012[/editline] just kidding hack squats are for faggots wannabe deadlift
Is using a machine to squat truly that terrible? The normal squat rack at my gym is rather annoying for me to use as I am just the wrong length to easily put the bar back in the rack. I hear quite often that machines are not to be trusted but well I generally don't see many people actually using proper arguments or sources. While I am posting i might as well ask about my other issues. I've been quite sick the last couple of days and as a result there of I think I may have lost quite a bit of strength. I now weigh only 65 Kilogram while I am 1.80 meters. Constantly I'm unable to hit previous targets and have been feeling quite weak in both strength and willpower. Should I try taking it lighter or should I keep at it till I reach my former strength?
Using a smith machine to squat is terrible. However, leg press and hack squat machines are perfectly fine. Barbell squats are the best for building leg strength but leg press and hack squats are a little better for hypertrophy, just depends on your goals.
