    Hi all,

    I discovered SS some time ago, but wasn't able to train until now. Today was my first workout. I have limited lifting experience and am reading SS to improve form/technique.

    Age - 25
    Height - 6'4
    Weight - 195-200lbs

    5 min on the bike
    Squats with just the bar 2x8
    Squats 95lbs 2x5

    Work Sets
    Squat 135lbs 3x5
    Bench 135lbs 3x5
    Deadlift 135lbs 1x5

    I realize that my squat and deadlift should be higher but it is my first workout so I'm easing into it, plus I have hockey tonight and don't want to kill my legs. I will be adding 5lbs per week on my squat and deadlift because I want to work on my technique/form (I know SS prescribes to add 5lbs per workout at the beginning). Anyways, slow and steady is the way I want to approach this.

    Welcome Sylz!

    It ain't where you start, its the journey to where you are going.

    Keep adding some weight to the bar slowly and steadily.

    Starting out at 135lbs for your bench, you must have a decent bench from before training. Good stuff.
