    Yeah. Keep lifting. You're not gonna stall out in 2 months.

    What's your current program?

    I would switch to a full body program lower the rep range if the goal is to get stronger 5x5 will get them gains then focus on one goal at a time so if you want a bigger squat key in on that first and squat 3 times a week or every work out
    Enjoy Your Ride!

    hello--right on you are on your way--keep it simple and add weight every week on the bench,squat,deadlift--write out what your at now and add 5-10 pounds on for last 2 sets of each movement. Simple aggressive overload----let your body know that the weight is getting heavier all the time and you will shock your body --it works - DO NOT WASTE ENERGY ON CARDIO- lift heavier and write out a 3-4 month goal for yourself by weekly adding weight and you will see it written in front of you and monitor each week as you go-- it is a fun ride man------gotta eat like a horse if you wanna be strong too---- also if you can lift it 5 times it is too light----do real heavy last 2 sets of 3 all out reps ------HEAVY IS THE KEY GRASSHOPPER--

    almost forgot--- gotta let muscles heal--juice or not -let heal at least 48-72 hours- when I do heavy it is only one bodypart a week--because it is all for strength and power nothing else----heavy=muscles and power because you force your body to adapt to the constant adding of more and more weight-- it is a simple concept and do not listen to complicated schemes and workout tips from a skinny guy either--go to the strongest powerfull guys and they will tell you the same thing is to constantly make your body push/pull more than it is used to---SIMPLE
