    I'm on Texas Method, which is one of the Rippetoe options after Starting Strength.

    SilverBack Hybrid Strength - sorta like the leangains pyramid thing I would think, but I am not familiar enough with the latter to discern if it's close enough or not.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    I do this in conjunction with 5/3/1 to set the weight for my sets.

    More advanced? There is nothing more advanced than RPT. You'll set PR's constantly on RPT. I'm seeing way better lifts on RPT than 5X5. I was too wiped out to give the max effort where I needed it doing 5X5's. When it comes to building muscle, less is more.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    I think I'm going to have to switch to this. I never did 5x5, but 5x3 was pretty tiring as well. I haven't set a PR for over a month

    Time to deload. Madcow or Texas method are both good to go to as well.

    I deloaded for 3 weeks and still saw no progress. Going to try for madcow...seems very promising.

    Would it be as effective for lighter weights though? I was at a 185lbx2 squat and it's now a 165x2.

    I am with ChocToco369, I also started with SL5x5 and after two months I too felt wiped out before getting to the 5th set. I changed over to the Leangains approach with RPT and love this style. It is so simple to follow and easy to see progress each workout. It really puts your focus on that working set, allowing you to go all out and push to better each lift each time. I am extremely pleased at this point.
