    I was fine on squat and bench, but my deads were suffering and the standing military press was painful

    squat - last two sets went three reps, good workout but didn't push it,

    bench - x3 then x1 last two, x1 was at about 90% max

    deads - x3, x3, x3, x1, x1 was about 80% max

    standing military - repped out tree sets of five but was dying the whole time

    "A" Day with Starting Strength calls for Squat Bench and Deadlift. The press is a little much but it's not going to kill him.

    i know what the intermediate 5x5 program is like.

    if he was 5RMaxing out on all his lifts... i think doing that for all 4 of those compound lifts would be a bit much. sure, it aint gonna kill you but it's unnecessary and by the last lift you'd probably be worn out anyways.
