    Default Starting Point after coming off of CF sanity check

    • phoenix arizona seminar date
    • texas seminar date
    Looking at phase 1 and knowing I need to pull back a good 20% on my current 5 rep max, would you kindly folks take a gander and let me know if the starting training points look reasonable vs my prior exercising?

    SS Starting point:
    Bench: 110
    Shoulder Press: 60
    Back Squat: 160
    Deadlift: 190
    Clean: 100 is easy, 135 is hard, 145 is really hard. I suppose I'll start with 100

    Forget phases and forget your past CF lifts. Follow the directions in SSBBT3 for how to choose starting weights.
