    Hi all,
    My name is Per and I am from Sweden. I have always been thin and weak, so I decided to start working out. I have a friend who recommended that I only do bench deadlift and squat and thats how I found this program.

    I started before the summer but had to take a break due to traveling so in my mind this is the real start.

    Goals: My goal is to squat 80 kg deadlift 110 kg and bench 60 kg and power clean 65 kg before new year. I also want to gain some weight, the goal here is over 80 kg. Right now I weight 73 kg, I started out at 65, so almost a 10 kg gain in a couple of weeks.

    I have been doing SS for a month and right now my squat is up to 62.5 deadlift 82.5 powerclean 45 and bench 40. The weights are still light, but all in good time =)

    Workout B:
    3x5 Squat: A friend helped me with my technique the other day, told me I lifted to much with my back and didnt use my hips. So I lowered the weights to 57.5 and focused on hip drive. The squat felt much better!

    3x5 Press: 30kg, going to up add weight here

    5x3 Power cleans, 45, going to add weight here aswell

    Celebrated the good workout with milk and meat!

    Messed up today, first decided to change my schedule to mon, wed, fri then did workout B instead of A. Ah well

    Workout B
    3x5 Squat 3x5 60, adding weight, form still feels good. No strain on the back at all.

    3x5 Press 3x5 30 kg, forgot to add weight, felt easy

    5x3 Power cleans 2x3 47.5, 3x3 45 couldnt catch the bar properly at 47.5. Decided it was to heavy.

    The workout took forever, had to wait for some guys who curled in the powe rrack. And when I powercleaned a guy decided to stand next to me and pose. Fucking annoying people at my gym

    3x5 Bench Press 3x5 42.5
    1x5 Deadlift 82.5

    comments: FINALLY added weight to the bench press. Squat and deadlift felt good. Tried mixed grip on deadlift, but started wondering should I always lift with the same grip or change between sets?

    Thought about a home gym?

    Don't use mixed grip till you seriously can't hold onto the bar with chalk and a death-grip. Chalk is key. Don't ask if you're allowed to use it at your gym, just use it.

    Also, is it okay if I read your log with that playful svveeeedish accent that's portrayed in movies (ie, Supertroopers? "I vant von!" "Iz dare sumsing I con do for you?")

    Ask them politely "Have you got many sets left?" Then pull up a bench and sit 5 feet away and stare them down till they move out.
