Just on deads. I was having problems adapting to a better form in deads, so I backed off the AMRAP sets on deads so that I could focus on technique more. Things have been coming along nicely.

My current lifts:

BW - 79.3kg

Bench 70kg x 5
Squat 95kg x 7
Press 42.5kg x 6
Deads 102.5kg x 10

These are all for one max rep set. I havent reset anything yet.

I started with SS, but been doing a combination of GSLP and RPT. Not sure which one to stick with now.

I'm leaning towards RPT for several reasons. It's minimalist, heaviest set is first to push strength, and the backoff sets help with hypertrophy.

You don't need accessory exercises, just hit the main ones really hard and thats it.

I chose my accessory lifts for specific reasons. So, I kind of need them.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Honestly at your weights, it doesn't matter. If you like rpt do rpt, but don't program hop. At this point you are still not very strong.

Just set it up on a simple A/B rotation with rpt

A:
Bench or incline
Back squat
Wide bodyweight dips- 50-100 reps
Bodyweight chins- 30-100 reps
Lateral raises- 2 x 15-20


B:
Press
Weighted chins
Weighted dips
Deadlift- 1 set
Barbell curls- rpt 6-8/ 8-12/ 12-15
Side lateral raise- 2 x 15-20


5-6 exercises, quick and to the point. Do the above and it should take less than an hour. Pick some form of hard arse conditioning for 10-12 min and get after it.



Here are some subs

Chins for rope climbs, racked chins

Dips for cgbp or reverse grip bench, weighted close grip pushups

Squats for front squats, walking lunges, split squats, heavy thrusters

Deads for sumo or trap bar deads, heavy arse kb swings, heavy hip thrust, heavy strict bent over rows

Any db or variant exercise for the main lifts.

Incline for bench, weighted ring pushups etc

Side lateral raise for face pulls, reverse bent over fly or other rear delts exercise

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Let me rephrase that then.

I suspect I personally dont need accessories, since I'm still at novice strength levels.

Just choosing now between GSLP and RPT.

RPT has more intensity and higher rep 'pumpy' sets, but less frequency on the big lifts as you only do each once a week.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Just started lifting for the first time in my life in January, 3 months before I turned 30. Three kids (4, 2, and 1) and one on the way (due October).

In typical beginner fashion, I started by jumping around from program to program with very minimal gains. Just started Greyskull LP two weeks ago.

Prepare to have your minds blown by some of my working sets (lbs)...



Not gonna lie - trying not to get too dejected looking at what you guys put up. Gonna take me a while to get there...one day at a time...

EDIT: Current body weight = 158 lbs

Ride that linear program. Doing a legit linear program is the best thing you can do.

Don't sweat current numbers. We're all where we are, but it matters more where you're headed. Being able to move forwards and improve you health and strength is awesome. Everyone starts somewhere.

The first time I did a deadlift, I was happy I pulled 135. I've put about 400 extra pounds on that max. Go for it and you'll probably smoke me.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Dude I’ve been lifting weights for quite some time. You think I started off benching 225 for reps? Hell no. I started with maybe 95 lbs on the bar. If you stick to a good program and have good technique, you will hit the bigger numbers too. There are no shortcuts though. It’s a grind.

Bro, when I started back lifting in 14, I couldn't even get 165 on bench up, 185 killed me on squat and that was after lifting for year before a 5 year break.

You are doing fine, ride the gslp until you can't anymore.

I think I pinned myself with 95 pounds in freshman football training when I was 14.

This thread is to help motivate and bounce ideas off each other. Nothing in here is meant to be intimidating or condescending because ALL of us started exactly where you are.

Trust the process, eat some food, and get jacked.

I remember the very first time I lifted weights. It was in 7th grade and we were trying out for weightlifting numbers. They put different weights on the bars and had people AMRAP them. Highest was 100lbs. Got it like 6 times.

Did not get good advice from those coaches. One tried to show off and did 225 for reps with feet up. Of course we thought he was badass at the time.

Oddly enough, this has been the most challenging part. I'm doing well nutritionally, but have trouble getting in enough calories.
