Question about 5x5
4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1929471515.jpg]
I can do a 2plate deadlift with decent form. I can do 25 reps within 10 minutes but i can never do a second one in succession without sacrificing form and cant get a third regardless of form.
note: My back is always raped after i do this as i expect this is infact my 1RM since I cant do 5 in a row.
But when i do 90kg 5x5 i find it far too easy and I dont seem to gain anything from it. So i tried 95kg but that resulted in the same as before, not being able to do more than 1 rep.Its like as soon as I get to 95kg I cant do reps in succession.
Should i stick with lesser weight, 5x5 perfect form and try to increase with even smaller increments or should I go for 25 total reps, decent form, annihilate my back and make gains?
