    87.5x5

    Bent over barbell row

    Really starting to have to attack this lift, but weight still managable.

    Wednesday

    Squats bodyweight 1x20
    105x5
    205x5
    205x5
    205x5

    Cant ATG the weight anymore without too much forward lean out of the hole so im going to quad parallel instead. Actually felt more controlled. I hope this isnt the beginning of the end for my newbie gains.

    Bench press
    130x5
    130x5
    130x5

    Easy as when i started

    Deadlift
    245x5
    245x5
    245x5

    Holy god damn these wiped me out. I highly doubt ill be able to hit 255x5 next workout so i guess this means im doing 5 pound jumps from now on... also figured out what i was doing wrong with my back which was the last form issue i had on any lift. woohoo.

    Huh, your right. Doesnt seem like that would be enough work though, since i dont do powercleans. What exactly is the reasoning behind 1 set vs 3? Moving more weight = more strength?

    1. it very hard lift.
    2. you have squat on the same day and both exercise work on preety much the same muscles.
    3. that what rip sayd.

    starting strength coach development program
    Its wierd, every time i shock my body with a new squat rep range i sleep badly that night. Ill wake up thirsty as hell after 5-6 hours and not be able to get back to sleep, or only for half an hour. Also it seemed like my appetite was slightly supressed as i wasnt hungry in the morning and started feeling full 1/4 of the way through breakfast, which almost never happens.
