    Okay, so I have decided to post my log here. I have been doing SS for a month now and figured I should start off by catching up to the present day. As you can see I have started light in order to make some decent progress and not overdo it or injure myself on the way up

    Stats:
    Male
    32 years
    5'9"
    128 lbs.

    All weights are in pounds because that is how my brain has been trained to think.
    All reps are 5's unless otherwise noted, because that is how my brain has been trained to think.

    Mow lawn

    (I am tracking this because I have a huge lawn that takes more than two hours with a push mower and not a flat square foot to be found - i.e. legitimate workout)

    After a week of eating >1000kcals more than I am used to, I found that I could not eat very much for two days (under 2000 kcals). Does anyone else have a problem with eating big EVERY day? My first thought is that I have drank more milk in the last week than I have in the previous 2 decades. I very much dislike how it tastes and how it feels inside me. I have quickly realized I am not a cow.

    Got tired and form got sloppy and since I deloaded a bit I decided to do an extra set to practice form.
