    Ok, I used to keep my log on another forum but I think I might update it here from now on as I'll probably get better feedback.

    Starting weights: (started late november 2009)

    Squat: 45
    Deadlift: 55
    Bench: 45
    Press: 30
    Power Clean: ??
    Weighed 88kg myself.

    Current PR's:

    Squat: 147.5kg for a triple.
    Deadlift: 150x4
    Bench: 90x5
    Press: 70x5
    Power Clean: 67.5x3
    Now weight about 95kg, need to eat more and put on more weight.

    Routine is as follows, I've sorta fucked with the novice program as outlined in PP because I felt I wasn't deadlifting enough. If this is a bad idea feel free to tell me.

    Monday

    Squat 3x5
    Press/Bench 3x5
    Power Clean 5x3

    Wednesday

    Light Squat 3x5 (80% of Mondays weight)
    Press/Bench 3x5
    Weighted Back Hypers 3x5
    Chin ups/Pull ups 3xfailure

    Friday

    Squat 3x5
    Press/Bench 3x5
    Deadlift 1x5

    If I've bastardised the program too much and you guys think I should revert to one of the written ones please tell me.

    I don't know if the back hypers are helping but once my power clean gets heavier it might be nice having a break from pulling from the floor.

    Light squat days are keeping my progress on this lift going smoothly, 5kg a week isn't too bad and I think if I was adding 7.5kg a week I might stall soon. At the moment I hope to make at least 155kg and hopefully 160kg or more before I stall again.

    A few weeks ago I reset most of my lifts after being sick, I'm due to surpass previous PR's in the next few weeks.

    Bar speed was decent on all lifts. Today's squats felt easier than last Mondays.

    Lol yeah my deadlift is lower but only because my form isn't too great, I'm hoping to catch it up.

    15/03/2010

    Squat: 147.5kg x5x3
    Press: 70kg x5x3
    Power Clean: 67.5 x3x5

    Squats were hard but form was good. Presses were strangely easy. Friday will be a PR for both.

    Well I got my training partner to video me DLing 150 for reps at my back was rounding massively, and I only got 4 reps out.

    So a couple weeks ago I dropped it down to 135 and I'm trying to keep a neutral spinal curvature. So far it's been good but we'll see how it is when I get back to 150.

    Squat: 150kg x5x3
    Press: 71kg x5x2, x4x1
    Deadlift: 145kg x2

    PR'ed the squat, felt good and depth and barspeed were good too. I'm starting to think I should get some shoes that are better than chucks now.

    Missed last press and strained my back somehow, deadlift was shocking too. But I was bloody tired, next week I'll get the reps.

    EDIT: Also PR'd my weight, 97.1kg in the morning. Will break 100 soon.

    I don't know why my bench failed so miserably, but squats were good.

    Squat: 120kg x5x3

    Did not finish the rest as my left elbow is rooted. Hurts to even put plates on the bar, I don't know wtf happened. Pain only started during squats, and I didn't have bent wrists.
