    Intro
    I'm 21 years old and I'm currently a Software Engineer at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. This journal will start off in 'The Texas Method', my own variation of it. This is only my second real program, I finished starting strength before starting the texas method.

    A correction to the previous log. My benchpress on monday was 180 lbs not 185.


    Monday, Oct 1st:
    location: Uni Gym


    Squat:
    Work Sets
    4x5x220

    Bench Press:
    Work Sets
    1x5x185
    4x4x185

    Barbell Rows:
    Work Sets
    4x4x185


    I dropped the amount of reps across this week to make a smaller jump. Squats went well, nothing to really note. Bench I was considering trying for a 5x5 across with 185. However the last rep on the first set was slow so I went with 4 reps for the rest. 185 on barbell rows instead of 180 because there arent many 2.5lb plates around. These are done with a full deweight each time btw. Overall not a bad workout. I've gotta start scouting new programs.
