    Nice job man. Prowler is simple. Put a couple plates on it and start pushing.

    Nice PRs man! Prowler works as such: add weight start with a couple 45lb plates (depending on the weight of the prowler), push for length of the track as hard as you can, repeat. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks fellas, I appreciate it. It seemed that simple...but I was pretty sure I'd do something silly and look extra derp.
    I dropped my first plate on my toe today. 45lbs.. right on my big toe...none of other toes ..just..fuck that toe in particular.

    Anyway, ill be there in feburary to support you guys if I don't see you before then.

    I haven't tried a 1RM on squat or bench in a month or two... but I did sign up on the starting strength forum ranking log! Training is going so well right now.. not sure if I should "test" I've never had a "test" day.. but I am planning on the meet May23rd at brute.. any suggestion as to when an advanced novice should test?

    I'm... halfway through my 18th week on the program. 5R(PR's) (I can't assume to know my 5RM with just LP)

    Squat:300
    Deadlift:380
    Bench:205

    No "true" 1RMs until the meet. You'll hit some heavier singles as the meet approaches, but no reason to risk hurting yourself before it actually counts. You're still several months out, so we'll talk more about a peaking plan as it gets closer. Just keep pushing for now.

    Today went well
    BW 214...OKAY...maybe I'm getting a little sloppy.. Will dial in carbs a little.

    Squats(belted)
    Warm-up then
    225x3
    255x2
    275x1
    295x5x3
    Rested a little less between sets today and it was fine. I've been spending too long in the gym.

    Bench(belted)
    45x10
    95x5
    135x5
    185x3
    207x5x2
    207x4 (failed fifth)

    Felt really heavy warming up.. I threw in about 20 chin ups last night before I went to bed..5 at a time.. I'm going to assume my arms were tired from that extra work they were unaccustomed to. Starting to get a little elbow tension and soreness.. form might need to be worked a little.. I'll try and make a vid soon or bribe Austin for some of his time.

    Powercleans

    95@3
    125@3
    145x6x3
    Power Cleans felt good for the first time.. a few failed reps in there due to form..maybe three altogether.. I didn't count them and kept at my set until I got three good ones.


    I have video of my last set of squats and last set of PC s.. Will post when home.!
