Nate's Journey Journal
Time to make a commitment for change.
Squat 145lbs x 5 x 3
OHP 90lbs x 5 x 3
Powercleans 45lbs x 3 x 5
Squat 155lbs x 5 x 3
Bench 115lbs x 5 x 3
Deadlift 145lbs x 5
I have been drinking a GOMAD, I missed one day, only had about half.
Recovery is amazing, I have done an adulterated version of SS in the past, now I have the book and its time to actually do the program!
I will be increasing squats by 10lbs each workout until I hit 205, which is where I left off, then we'll see, will probably drop to 5lbs each workout. Deadlift will be up by 20lbs each workout for 2 weeks, then 10lbs each workout.
I hope I finally get my ass in gear and get this done!
Squat 165lbs x 5 x 3
OHP 95lbs x 5 x 3
Powercleans (stretches, my wrist and shoulder flexibility is not allowing me to get in the rack position with my elbows up)
Squat 175lbs x 5 x 3
Bench 120lbs x 5 x 3
Deadlift 165lbs x 5
Squat 185lbs x 5 x 3
OHP 100lbs 5,5,4
Powercleans - Stretching
Squat 195lbs x 5 x 3

Things look to be moving along as they should, very good work! Keep it up Nate!
Thanks for the encouragement.

Nice work. What's your body weight?

Squat 205lbs x 5 x 3 (A few sloppy reps but I was just getting back into the swing of things)
OHP 100lbs x 5 x 3 (Much easier if I take one deep breath for the set)
Curls 55lbs x 8 x 3 (I know, I should be doing powercleans but my freaking wrists still aren't flexible enough, I am still doing stretches)
