I did SPBR and at 145-150lb, stalled on all my lifts
I stopped the program after getting sick in early 2012 / small injury and really fucked up my schedule. Now, I hopped onto whatever the hell my brother is doing, going at a rate of 2x a week 'M' and 'W,' I dropped DL completely and my current lifts
Basically I can lift a plate now with ease, hooray! I think once I get back on track going 4x a week as before, I should improve steadily...
Trying to hit 185lb on bench/squat by mid-to-year-end. I know its laughable but my diet with 0 supplements i.e. protein shakes et al really make recovery / gains hard for me. I have been eating a lot more carbs to gain weight so now I am about 155lb (5'10). I think I am most like 'Flame' but dude is much stronger. I have similar goals, wanting to stay lean with muscle and agile enough to still shoot the 13" jumper on the court. My core + chest is also very soft, physiologically, how do I keep it firm rather than flabby? Also knucks, how to address knee problems with doing squats? I am ineligible for the Bulgarian method. My knees don't hurt but they feel odd. Bro says stance too wide.
Please feel free to rip me apart. And Jarude, it's not like I chose not to listen, but tweaked it to where I can actually follow through on my own grounds. I can say my strength compared to 1.3 years ago is much improved but I'm still a beginner.
