    Iím 5í7.5Ē 181 lbs, currently trying to gain as fast as I can with gomad. My current 5 rep maxes are:
    Squat - 315
    Bench - 225 (for only 3 reps unfortunately)
    Deadlift - 375
    Row - 225
    Incline Bench Press - 190

    Iíve been on Bill Starrís 5x5 (Madcow) for the past couple months. I like the routine, but just not sure if Iím cheating myself out of faster progression by switching to an intermediate routine too soon.

    Also, I work a very demanding job (UPS driver). I work nearly 12 hours a day, and I walk nearly 20,000 steps a day. Which in turn makes keeping weight on extremely difficult, but Iím still trying, and determined. Not to mention, Iím totally spent by the time I get to the gym, but I hang out my workouts anyway.

    How old are you. Did you ever do the SS NLP which includes the press (not listed in your post)? If so, when did you do it?

    Iím 30, and no I didnít do SS per say. I did a few variations of it like GreySkull & Ivysaur 4-4-8. Iím wishing now that I had stuck with SS. At the end of of my novice LP, I was able to press 130 lbs for 3x5, which was exactly 2 months ago.

    Sounds like you should actually do the program proper and take it from there.
