    Hi, after working through starting strength last winter I was out of the gym for a while. I've started getting back into it recently but pretty much had to start over with my lifts. At the moment I'm just trying to do the major lifts once a week since I'm swim training twice a week and surfing regular (it's summer time). My plan at the moment is to workout Monday - Deadlift, Wednesday - Press \ Bench, Friday - Squat.

    Here's my journal from last week:

    Sun 6/7/08
    Deadlift 5 x 5 60kg, 80kg, 80kg, 100kg, 60kg

    Tues 8/7/08
    Press 3 x 5 40kg
    DB Bench Press 3 x 8

    Fri 11/7/08
    Squat 3 x 5 50Kg
    Back ext. 3 x 10 (BW)
    Lat Pulldown 3 x 8 49 Kg

    Default W\c 28/07/2008

    Tues
    Press 1 x 5, 1 x 4, 1 x3 42.5 kg
    Rack Press from Face 2 x 3 45 kg
    Pull Ups 3 x 1

    Notes: pressing after surfing in the morning isn't a good idea if your trying to make progress felt harder than last week where I got more reps with the same weight

    Wed
    Deadlifts
    1 x 5 80 kg
    1 x 3 90 kg
    1 x 3 100 kg
    1 x 3 110 kg
    1 x 1 120 kg
    1 x 1 125 kg
    1 x 1 130 kg (failed)

    Sun
    DB Incline Bench 3 x 12
    Squats 7 x 2 40 kg

    Notes:After working all day and surfing twice yesterday (plus a few beers afterwards) I felt beat when I started so I worked on my squat form. Doing the DB presses before squating exaggerated the problem but the squat rack was in use and I only had 30 minutes.
