  • Question related to Running LP 4 years into training + strength

    Hey, this is most likely a question asked a lot, but what would really help me is if i got a direct answer, since me being me is always worrying about variables.
    I have trained for 4 years. 3 years of doing Your typical bro split shit that doesent make you strong, and the last year i was running some dumb stronglifts 5x5 variation that basically got me a LITTLE bit of strength gains, (and i messed around with deloading and shit).
    I am 19 years old, male. 5"8.
    Here are my 3x5 maxes.
    Squat:245
    Bench: 165
    Press: 120
    Deadlift: 260

    So i am just wondering now if I should run the novice LP, or just move onto an intermediate program so i can apply more stress (which would yield better results??)
    Just looking for a sense of direction! Thank you very much in the future, and also your videos are the best fitness videos that have been ever put out in my opinion. Thanks for keeping it real!

    If your 3 x 5 maxes are those listed, then all you need to do is come back 2 days later and add 5 lbs. If you can do 3 x 5 with that weight, you can use the novice program for a bit longer.

    If you can't do 3 x 5 at the heavier weight, then move on to a post-novice program.

      Thanks austin. Is it okay to be grinding reps in the novice program? (Sometimes the last set on squats can literally be an all out max just barely lifting the last rep, where the bar is barely moving up.)

        It will happen at the end of the program, yes.

          At what point does a grind become a technical fail? I'm thinking specifically of squats, where I can continue to grind out reps with each becoming slightly more like a good morning than the last. Because this happens gradually, there's no discrete 'this is a good rep', 'this is bad', so at what point do you draw the line?

            There's no quantifiable answer to this. It's all arbitrary, based on personal preference and risk tolerance.
