I'm a 30 year old woman, 5'3 ~135lbs. I've gained 8-10 lbs on SS. I've ended NLP and transitioned to Texas Method in the last couple weeks. The end of NLP became morally and mentally arduous in a way I didn't fully understand until starting TM. I train at the YMCA and I live in a town of 2,000 people with very little support and unlimited unsolicited terrible spotters with bad advice.

I ended NLP with:
Squat: 220lbs 3x3
Bench: 122.5lbs 3x3
OHP: 85lbs 5x3
Dead: 245lbs x5 worked up to 255 x3
Chin ups: bodyweight x7, usually 3x5

I started TM with the standard sets/reps and am giving it a go before I make adjustments for female lifters, except that I'm adding deadlifting to volume days after listening to Barbell Logic podcast w/ Andy Baker. My OHP is still moving forward on NLP so I haven't fully incorporated into TM yet. All other lifts at the end of NLP would look like this: fail, fail, fail, get it, fail, fail, fail, get it. This got old and sad.

These two weeks have been a little off program as I made the decision to transition to TM. It was hard to leave NLP. It was wonderful and I loved it. Looking forward to solidly being on TM. Perhaps registering for a meet too..
