    With a new program I leave my Starting Strength days behind me.

    Bodyweight: 150 lbs. And I intend to change that!

    I started the Bill Starr 5x5 today and was more winded and sweaty then tired. Vision began to fade at some points, merely a sign of too little oxygen and quickly remedied.

    Squat: 120 lbs @ 1x5.
    150 lbs @ 1x5.
    180 lbs @ 1x5.
    210 lbs @ 1x5.
    240 lbs @ 1x5

    Bench press: 65 lbs @ 1x5.
    80 lbs @ 1x5.
    95 lbs @ 1x5.
    105 lbs @ 1x5.
    125 lbs @ 1x5

    Power clean:55 lbs @ 1x5.
    65 lbs @ 1x5.
    75 lbs @ 1x5.
    85 lbs @ 1x5.
    95 lbs @ 1x5.

    Hope this is readable.

    Easily done.

    Press: 55 lbs @ 1x5.

    Once again, quite easy.

    Should have known better and started lower.

    I made a very stupid mistake, I should have ramped up to the power clean on Friday.

    You don't bump up the weight for all your sets on friday, just the top one, which will be a triple. You will then hit friday's triple for a set of 5 on monday, as well as bumping up your other sets. Also, you don't do the set of 8 for power cleans.

    Just goes to show you I'm an idiot.

    Squat: 130 lbs @ 1x5.
    160 lbs @ 1x5.
    190 lbs @ 1x5.
    220 lbs @ 1x5.
    250 lbs @ 1x5.

    Bench press: 75 lbs @ 1x5.
    85 lbs @ 1x5.
    95 lbs @ 1x5.
    115 lbs @ 1x5.
    135 lbs @ 1x5.
    This was too easy, I felt, almost suspiciously easy.

    Power clean: 65 lbs @ 1x5.
    75 lbs @ 1x5.
    85 lbs @ 1x5.
    95 lbs @ 1x5.
    105 lbs @ 1x5.


    I had the most trouble with the lighter weights, I kept expecting a difficult jump and it didn't come until at least 95, and at some points during power cleans I almost lost control of the bar because of the excess force.

    Well, because I'm a damned fool I set the press weight to 102.5 and failed the first rep on the first try and the last rep on the second.

    Squat: 130 lbs @ 1x5.
    160 lbs @ 1x5.
    190 lbs @ 2x5.

    Press: 57.5 lbs @ 1x5.
    77.5 lbs @ 1x5.
    87.5 lbs @ 1x5.
    102.5 lbs @ 1x5.

    Deadlift: 155 lbs @ 1x5.
    185 lbs @ 1x5.
    215 lbs @ 1x5.
    245 lbs @ 1x5.

    I really have to sort out this wrong weight crap right now.

    I was helping a friend of hamburgerfan's with his power clean technique and I ended up with a new power clean PR of 120 lbs.

    I now weigh 153 lbs, so apparently I'm doing something right.
