    I started SS on 9/2/2009 with the following lifts:

    Squat: 115#
    Press: 95#
    Bench: 145#
    Deadlift: 175#
    Power Clean: 95#

    Up to the following on 2/2/10:

    Squat: 280#
    Press: 140#
    Bench: 185#
    Deadlift: 325#
    Power Clean: 150#
    Chin Up: -110#
    Pull Up: -120#

    Since then, I've lost consistency. Because of this, my lifts have suffered from a lack of progress. I am bringing it back. Squats and Deadlifts are belted unless otherwise indicated.
