    Have been keeping my own SS-type log for awhile so will just post the last few for some context.

    Stats are:

    Bodyweight - 205 lbs
    Height - 5'8

    Estimated 1RMs since I began SS one month ago:

    Squat - 267----> 285 lbs
    Bench - 167 -----> 175 lbs
    Deadlift - 286----> 325 lbs
    Press 122 ----> 130 lbs

    Routine is not strict SS, as I'm not doing cleans due to a trap problem on one side, and I'm too fat to do many chinups. This will change soon as I get stronger (and hopefully fix the shrugging problem I have).

    Jan. 18 -

    Began SS with a bit of a deload to give myself time to adapt. Previous 5RM was 237.5 lbs

    Squat 3x5x212.5
    Bench 3x5x140
    Supine pulldowns - 3x5x130
    Ab roller - 1x12, 1x10, 1x9

    Only had 48 hours rest - also bad sleep before. Workout went fine though.

    Squat - 155x2x5
    Mil. Press - 100x3x5
    Deadlift - 265x1x5


    Using a light day as I can't seem to recover from 3x a week heavy squatting. A bit too light though so will bump it up in coming days.

    Got the pot stir exercise idea from Stuart McGill. Pretty cool but I hate using Swiss Balls.
