    Hi there,

    started weightlifting ( seriously, not jerking around with leg presses, extensions etc.. ) 10 months ago, had an injury while squatting ( went to fast down, quad got swollen ), did a bill star rehab method for a month, and recheck my form.

    I'll be 26 in few months. Been working out for a 6 years now, before that I was heavily in Thailand kickboxing, judo and all kinds of sports until I had a knee meniscus injury - Bucket handle tear and now i have 20% less meniscus, nothing to worry about.

    Here are my stats:

    Height: 6'3
    Weight: 220

    Squat: 3x5x180
    Bench: 3x5x240 ( I know... )
    Press: 3x5x130
    DL: 3x5x240
    Clean: 5x3x130

    Yeah... I was afraid of doing any serious "heavy" lower body routine because of my knee surgery. Only after I started reading online I realized that squatting is beneficial for knees, not detrimental. I have a lot to cach up.

    First log, I'll write in kilos from now on btw, no point in converting every time.

    Squat: 85kg - 5, 5, 5 - pretty good form, will certainly increase weight
    Bench Press . 110kg - 5, 5, 4 - getting heavy, wasn't able to finish the last set, do over next time
    DL: 110 - 4 - bad form, stooped myself one rep before thing got relay ugly, will reduce weight by 10%

    That's it I guess, Happy second day of Spring

    Crap! Hurt my hand while doing some hammer work on an old tire. Shaved a bit of skin of my palm. Hope it heals until tomorrow.

    OK, next one, hand healed up enough, although it will take some time until I am able to do hammer work again.

    Squat - 3x5x87,5kg - Pretty good form, increase to 90kg next time

    Press - 62,5kg 5, 4, 2 - Getting rely heavy, I think I will have to deload , maybe change the press routine a bit

    Clean - 5x3x52.5kg - all good, increase next time

    The presses are getting difficult, daily linear progression will not work for them any more, I will most likely have to start tracking them weekly.

    Next one:

    Squat: 3x5x90kg = Form OK, increase next time, well see how it goes.
    Bench Press: 110kg, 5 5 almost 5, palm injury was a bit of bother
    DL: 5x1x100: Form good, increase next time.

    All righty then:

    Squat: 3x5x92.5 - Form a bit shaky, deload nearing soon

    Press: 3x5x60 - Form good, increase to 62.5 next time, will stay at that weight for a week or so..

    Clean: 5x3x52.5 - Form not so good, need to reread SS:PC section, although at light weight like this can't really see anything.

    There we go.

    Bad day at the gym today. Been at girlfriends birthday last night, got rascally drunk and eat like shit today. Here's the scoop:

    Squat: 3x5x95kg - Form not so good, will try again with same weight

    Bench: 110kg - 5, 5, 4 - Cant still get that 3x5... do over

    DL: 2x110kg - Accidentally put 10 more kilos than planed, crap...

    Bad day and my right wrist hurts, most likely bar position while squatting.

    OK, I was lazy yesterday and haven't post log, sorry... But here we are:

    Squat: 3x5x95kg - I'm not happy with form, although it's better than last time. I'll try one more time, if its not good enough, I'll deload a bit.

    Press: 3x5x62,5 - Finished.. barley. I will stay at this weight for some time.

    PC: 3x5x52,5 - Form is a bit lose, having problems with initiating pull with traps and keeping the bar in contact with my tights and close to my shirt.

    Happy Easter, btw!!
