    Been thinking, it was probably due to doing the squats first. Since Sumos use a lot of quads, squats are probably hampering them.

    Think I'll do my deadlifts first on deadlift max day next time. ...

    Strange. How hard were you working out while maintaining? Also how advanced of a lifter are you? If you're way big then maybe all that extra muscle contributes to an accelerated metabolism.

    5x5 and SS are essentially the same program, no? SS is just 3x5 and has cleans in it.
