    Here's the link to my SS log: Mike's SS training log

    I'm doing Texas Method for upper body, and HLM for full body.

    TM Upper body will be
    Week A
    Day 1 Press 5x5 90% last 1x5 max, Day 2 Bench 3x5 90% of 1x5 max, Day 3 Press 1x5 +2 lbs.
    Week B
    Day 1 Bench 5x5 90% last 1x5 max, Day 2 Press 3x5 90% of 1x5 max, Day 3 Bench 1x5 +5 lbs. ( for now, then to 2 or 2.5 )

    HLM
    Day 1
    Squat 1x5 +5lbs. and 2x5 at 90%
    Deadlift 1x5 +5lbs.

    Day 2
    Squat 80% of day 1, 3x5
    RDL 60% of day 1, 3x5
    Chins weighted +1 lbs 3x5
    Dips weighted +1 lbs. 3x5

    Day 3
    Squat 90% of Day 1 3x5
    PowerClean 5x3 ( I don't add weight to this yet, my form is progressing, but not so good )
    Incline Bench 3x8 ( not sure of reps here, start at 135 lbs. and add 5lbs. a week ??? )


    7/24/2016

    Light / Day 2 workout

    80% Squat 232 lbs. 3x5
    Bench 240 lbs. 3x5
    RDL 185 lbs. 3x5
    Chins 33 lbs. 3x5
    Dips 33 lbs. 3x5

    The chins and dips really hurt today. I think it's because of too much Deadlift the past week. When shifting from the SS to HLM to get the Deadlift on the Day 1 it actually put deadlifts in back to back workouts and for 3 times in 7 days. Since the next Deadlift day won't be until the 31st I should recover without causing a stall and don't think I actually tore anything. Bench was really rough as well, it is right on the edge of a stall with 3x5. But, it will be in TM next week so the PR day will only be a single set of 5.

    Day 3, Intensity Upper, Medium full

    90% Squat 255 lbs. 3x5
    Press 140 lbs. 1x5
    PowerClean 40 kilos 5x3

    I'm finally getting the powerclean better, with a good jump and rack. It's been very unatural to learn. I move slowly until the thigh and then jump, listening to hear my feet stomp. Seems to be working. I may start adding weight next week.
