Are you following the Stronglifts 5x5 program? I'm looking to do it after a few months of dropping weight/better conditioning via Simplefit. How long have you been lifting?
I've been lifting roughly since July 2008. I'm doing - more or less - the Starting Strength routine (by Mark Rippetoe), which I can highly recommend, by the way.
As I'm using my room, I don't have a squat rack or a platform, or a bench, which limits my lifting somewhat. Still, I feel it nicely complements simplefit.
Basically, I'm following a 5/2 schedule: 5 days of working out, two days rest.
