StrongLifts Member Asif (22, Sheffield UK) is on page 100 of the 5×5 report. His success story: Asif got sick of being fat, lost 45lb before finding StrongLifts 5×5, then started to work on strength and boosted his Squat from 187lb to 418lb RAW (at only 158lb) in 14 months. Check his amazing fat loss & muscle gain:
StrongLifts Member Asif just posted a video of himself Deadlifting 210kg at only 70kg body-weight. So that’s 3x his own body-weight and RAW (he’s not even using a belt or he’d be lifting more). Video of Asif’s heavy Deadlifts:
Okay, not the best technique ever but it was his first time Deadlifting 210kg and how many 70kg weighing guys do you see pulling 3x their body-weight raw? The weak lockout Asif could fix with hip flexor stretching/glute activation as well as heavy horizontal rowing (Barbell Rows) and just pulling faster.
No, Asif did NOT achieve his 210kg Deadlift with StrongLifts 5×5 only, but he built a foundation with it. Quote: “I just wanted to say thank you to Mehdi… I took his 5×5 workout and I adapted it revolving around deadlifts. He instilled a very simple mindset in us all on how to succeed. This is exactly what I did. I listened and I executed. The results are in front of you. I achieved my goal.”
