    starting strength log:

    starting weight as of 12/5/09 - 162.8, doing the whole milk thing, otherwise just eating as it comes and getting plenty of rest. motivation factor, 22 month old son and my wife misses my "bubble" butt which grew to existence after 30 days of starting strength done earlier this year. last time through got to 225 lb squats (my point of reference) and had yet to fail a rep. stuck with KG bumper plates at the gym i'm at now, which isn't exactly a bad thing. looking forward to some serious strength gains again.

    12/2/09:

    test weights of

    55 kg squat (2.5 kg increments)
    45 kg bench press (2.5 kg increments)
    110 kg deadlift (5 kg increments)

    no rest between sets for test days

    12/4/09:

    57.5 kg squat 3x5, check
    35 kg press (2.5 kg increments)
    30 kg power clean, insane amounts of practice to work on form. nice bruising to collar bone, probably somewhere around 100 reps, some from "knee" height, mostly from the ground


    12/7/09:

    60 kg squat 3x5, check
    47.5 kg bench 3x5, check
    115 kg deadlift 1x5, check

    12/11/09:

    squat - 65x3x5
    bench - 50x3x5
    deads - 120x1x5

    everything felt good. 264 lb deads felt awesome, though i wish i wasn't so damned lanky sometimes. measured my "wingspan" today at 6'4" at 6' tall.

    forgot to make note that all warmups are based on the spreadsheet floating around.
