StrongLifts 5x5

Today marks the end of my first twelve week StrongLifts 5x5 cycle and I think it'll be my only one.  I did get my deadlift up to two plates and my bench to nearly one, but the other lifts didn't make as much progress.  Five sets of five reps each at a relatively heavy weight seems like overkill to me so I'll give Wendler's 5/3/1 a try after vacation.

I know this program works for some, but it didn't really work for me.
