    Default Push press 300, deadlift 600

    I've been doing SS since January and decided to make a log here. I'm 6', 220, and 29 years old. 220 is my goal weight and I weighed 195 at the beginning of the year.

    Current Work Sets
    Squat: 300x5x3
    Bench Press: 235x5x3
    Press: 162.5x5x3
    Deadlift: 345x5
    Power Clean: N/A

    Goals
    1. To finish SS and move onto TM.
    2. Hit the 300-400-500 benchmark with a press of 200. To do this, I figure it would take roughly 345x5x3 in the squat, 260x5x3 in the bench, 185x5x3 in the press, and 445x5 in the deadlift.
    3. Long-term goal of push pressing 300 and deadlifting 600.

    Injuries
    1. I injured my left elbow a month or so ago warming up on power cleans. Two weeks ago I tried to power clean again, but it wasn't happening.
    2. I tweaked something in my left knee a week and a half ago while squatting. I squatted two days later for 300x5x3 but I felt a little something in my knee again. I'm taking some time off to let my knee recover and then will move to an advanced novice program.

    Nice stats. Question about the knee though. Does the discomfort stem from the side at all? I'm going through something similar myself.

    Thanks, Mr. City. I'd say that the knee injury is on the inner part of my leg, in that general region. I may have strained my sartorius muscle right next to my knee. I tend to feel it when I stand up and put weight on my leg but it's been feeling better lately though.

    Used DO grip on the first set of SLDL, mixed grip after. Felt my left elbow nagging me during the bench sets. I think the bench may be interfering with its recovery.

    I recently bought an ab wheel and used it for the second time. I used to do weighted sit-ups but I'm going to switch to using this on my off days. I used to think the ab wheel was a toy, but this thing is the real deal.

    I also have some grip toys that I'd like to start using again since my left hand had some trouble holding onto the deadlifts last time. I have a titan's telegraph key, some captain of crush grippers and a heavy hammer II. I used the grippers tonight and closed the #2 with my right hand but no such luck for my left. I'd like to be able to close it with both, easily.

    Went light on the squat. The first work set felt heavy but the second one was much easier. I have a lot of tightness in the hips that hasn't gone away even after not squatting for a while. I'm going to try doing these exercises http://www.elitefitness.com/forum/we...-a-631289.html that I saw on msingh's log and see if it helps.

    My grip is a limiting factor on my chin-ups. The second set I just couldn't hang on any longer. I didn't wait long enough for the third set, which is why it's so low.

    As an aside, planning on making a PR in getting engaged later today.

    All weekend my fiancee and I walked on the beach so my legs and calves were more than tired coming in. I'm supposed to get my Rip's in about two weeks -- I can't wait. I had a size 11 before, but they were a little too big so now I'm getting a 10.5.

    Cutting out warm-up info in the logs.

    Squat: 305x5x3 (PR)
    Press: 167.5x5x3 (PR)
    45 degree back extension: 15, 15, 15
    Chin-up: 8, 6, 4
    Wrist roller

    My knee felt fine after squatting last time so I went for PR and got it, though it blasted my upper back. I didn't think I'd make all my reps in the press, but once I got into my reps it was easier than I thought. I was probably good for 170.

    I used the ab wheel and the titan's telegraph key a couple nights ago. I really think the ab wheel is paying off more than weighted sit-ups. I encourage people to give it a shot.

    I also somehow gained 3 pounds over the past weekend and now weigh 223. Oh, and I got an email today saying I won't be seeing my Rip's for another month.

    Grip felt good on the deadlifts. I felt my left hand struggle just a bit on the last rep.

    For today's workout drink I mixed 3 cups of coffee , 3 heaping teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 cup of milk. Tasty.

    Squat: After getting the Starting Strength DVD I saw my squat stance has been too wide. Lately it's been more narrow and the switch takes some getting used to. I have to squat down more to hit parallel and it's more difficult. A few of these reps were high and a couple were too deep. I was wondering how I was going to make all my reps but I just kept thinking that if I miss, next workout I won't be able to do 315 and I really want to get to the point where I'm squatting 3 plates. I was also forgetting to squat out of the hole by lifting my butt up first until the end of the last set.

    Press: This was a welcome break after the squats. I'm sure that I was good for more weight.
