    EDIT:
    I'm updating this first post, as I competed in my first NASA powerlifting meet on April 7, 2012. That part of my log starts here.

    I turned 40 on February 12, 2012.
    ---------------------------

    Age: 39
    Height: 5'4
    Weight: 170

    Beginning Madcow Intermediate on Monday, 08/22/11.

    I am using the following 5RM's to calibrate my program. These PR's will be matched in the 4th week of the program, so I am starting off with a bit of a reset:

    Squat - 295
    Bench - 240
    Press - 150
    Deadlift - 365

    This program will also include Power Cleans, but I am still working on technique without a challenging load, so I am setting my 5RM to 135 pounds.

    5RM Goals for week 12 of this program
    Squat - 360
    Bench - 295
    Power Clean - 165
    Press - 185
    Deadlift - 445

    Notation used in this log
    weight x reps x sets
    sets x reps if using body weight

    Just out of curiosity, what made you switch to intermediate? Stalling, hit certain weights, just time for a change?

    Primarily stalling. I have been considering this for some time. A novice program with it's daily gains is becoming too frustrating, and I feel like my whole mental well being could best be served with weekly gains. I'm feeling good about getting my squat over 300 in this manner...wasn't feeling too good with the faster progression.

    I'm typing this on this dreadful Mobile board theme.

    I can't seem to get out of it, no matter what computer I use...somehow it seems to be tied to my sking1001 account. Others can switch between themes, but I can't. I really regret trying it, but since only my account has this problem, I am trying to create a new account, but I will continue to post my log here.

    My new name should hopefully be just sking.

    I don't know how to make real links with this Mobile thing, but if anyone has any idea how to help me, I tried to get some input here:
    http://startingstrength.com/resource...ad.php?t=26120

    The themes are supposed to work as described here:
    http://startingstrength.com/resource...ad.php?t=18621

    I have already tried logging out. I have even tried FOUR different computers! I have asked stef to login as sking1001, since the problem can't seem to be duplicated under any other account.

    If you have an idea how to help me, let me know. Otherwise, I will be posting as "sking" once my account is activated.

    Woohoo! Board theme problem solved :-)

    Many thanks to Moving_Target who helped me with my problem via a little URL parameter. Once I applied that, I was able to get to my settings again and fix the theme.

    If any other numbskull has this problem, you can refer them here:

    Madcow Intermediate Week 1

    Squat - Video
    140x5, 170x5, 205x5, 240x5, 280x3, 205x8
    Used a TUBOW to check every set. I believe I have finally fixed my knees. Much thanks to Rip's active hip article.

    Bench
    115x5, 140x5, 170x5, 195x5, 230x3, 170x8

    Power Clean
    65x5, 80x5, 95x5, 110x5, 130x3, 95x8

    Weighted Dips
    +45x10x3

    Barbell Curls
    75x10, 85x10, 90x10

    Triceps Extensions
    65x10, 85x10x2
    EDIT: These are done like this.

    The extra assistance and backoff sets made this a 120 minute session.
    I haven't done curls in so very long. At the beginning of the year I had a pretty severe case of tendinitis at the joint below my biceps that made curls nearly impossible. I was a little leery of adding them in today, but I wore my little elbow support thingy and they were surprisingly easy :-)

    Nice lifts!

    I have some issues doing normal barbell curls too. I find that dumbbell hammer curls work pretty good. I mainly do them just as preventitive maintenance. I know some guys tear biceps doing DL's, so I figure a little curling is a good thing. I might not get the "peak", but I can live with that! :-)
