    Started 10th grade high school and now im freshman in college. I've been doing 5x5s for probably 3 months and switched to 3x5 for about a month. Was already plateauing on 5x5s before I stopped it. Also had some body building/ isolation exercises mixed in the 5x5:rolleyes:

    ..stay tuned
    This may or may not help.

    When I plateaued on my squats I changed up the workout by backing off the weights and doing high reps like x20. Then went back to heavier squats and really slowed the tempo. My weights went up, albeit not by much.

    I started the 5x5 workout about a month ago. You up the weight by 5lbs every time.

    Im 146 lbs and looking back at my tracker this is what my squat progress looks like

    March 4th: 155lbs
    march 5: 155lbs
    7th: 160lbs
    12th: 175lbs
    13th: 210
    15th: 205
    18th: 245
    21st: 255
    25th: 260 - but I only did 2 sets on this one

    This is also on a smith machine, idk if that changes anything but its all the gym that I use has. No free barbells :(
