I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment Can I add in some core exercises to SL 5x5 and what do you suggest if so?
@ChristopherBruce Ask a new question using those two comments. It's a great question.

@ChristopherBruce Totally normal. 5 minutes between challenging lifts is normal. Personally I switch to different programming if the workout hits 2 hours due to >5 minute rests.

@Hituptony My friend...this is a question and answer site. He asked, so I answered. You commented with your opinion and that's cool. Ideally you'd post your own answer with your opinion. Maybe you're more right than me, but all I did was respond to your comment explaining why I answered the way I did.

@Hituptony There are valid ways and reasons to add accessory work, including core (or, in this case, ab) exercises. But I don't think this particular person should do so.

@ChristopherBruce For strength purposes, add weight to your squat and overhead press and make sure you're keeping good form, i.e. nice and tight through the abs during those lifts. Accessory work is not really necessary when you're not yet using a bunch of weight in the primary lifts. Furthermore, you're right at that place in the progression where people often simultaneously A) get bored and want to monkey with the program and B) start to lift challenging weights, meaning they need to double down on the fundamentals instead of adding new stuff.

@Hituptony "as the rest of my body has caught up while my stomach and waist are still really flabby". I don't think there's a tremendous imbalance, and though there's nothing wrong with ab work I don't think the OP should worry about any at the moment.

comment Deadlift relatively low compared to squat. Where am I weak?
@ChristopherBruce It does, but it does so by removing the element of grip from the deadlift, which you don't want to do. You want to work your grip. It also is a little risky for the bicep tendon, and given that there's no good reason to alternate the grip at 200 pounds, there's certainly no need to risk your bicep tendon.

How often are you deadlifting and squatting, and how often do you add weight?
