    Default My log untill i can afford the book

    • phoenix arizona seminar date
    • texas seminar date
    As i cant afford the book yet due to doing a 14week unpaid pre-apprenticeship in carpentry and having a 14week backlog of bills, plus buying a car, getting my lisence, paying for my trip back home to NZ and buying tools, it may still be a month before i can buy the book. Untill then, im reading as much as i can and basically doing the stronglifts program untill i can get the book and change over to SS. Doing this log to keep me on track and hopefully get some advice for knowlegable people. Sorry if my spellings bad.

    Ive trained before basically doing bench, bicept curls, pullups, and other dumb shit i found in mens health, and my job keeps me semi-fit. My goal is to get a strong frame i can be proud of, which gives me confidence and protection incase shit goes down. Plus i like the peace of training in my home gym with me, music and weights.

    My stats:

    Age: 22
    Height: 171cm
    Weight: 90Kg (before) 93Kg (now)

    I eat cereal, milk and nuts for breakfast. Nut bar for smoko. Chicken breast and cheese sandwich, with a muffin and milk for lunch. Two eggs afternoon snack (pre workout) with milk. Steak/fish/chicken for dinner with other stuff. Yogart for supper. This is my basic layout. I think im eating enough, and i have no problem gaining weight. Let me know if u think im wrong.

    So im going to put my first 8 workouts ive done since starting this programme and add my workouts when i can.

    None of the weights are including the bar and collar weights which are about 6KG, so ill leave that out, inless amounts are in bold

    And my last workout up to date. All weight arnt including the bar so plus 6KG on every lift. Im happy with the progress ive made, esp my bench and press. Deads are still easy, but ill go up slowly untill i get the book. No pain so far.

    Press: 50KG ( 56Kg) --- 5x5
    Dead: 90kg ( 96kg ) -- 5x3

    And my squats at 85KG --- 5x5

    Im starting to slow on bench and press, getting hard now. Cant wait to get the book. Next workout tommorow, where im going to start squatting 3 times a week, and lower the number of exercise per day, (mon, wed, fri )

    starting strength nutrition camp
    That's not even SL5x5... that's just rediculous. Even SL5x5 only has 1x5 deads and only every second workout.

    The SS template is dead simple. Check anybody's log (except mine, i'm no longer doing SS) and follow what they're doing.

    I used to do SL5x5 as well and my conclusion was that it was a good starting place for someone that is totally unfit. Since you're a carpentry apprentice you probably weren't in the same shape as me when starting (computer engineer fresh out of university with NO physical activity for 6 years).

    Welcome to the board.
