    Default Third Time's a Charm

    I've done SS before. Once in 2009-2010 when I was younger, but still old. Another aborted attempt last year for 6 weeks. While this is my third go, I have reason to believe this go will be charming indeed.

    I am:
    46 yo
    tall for a short guy at 5'11
    fat by most standards at 235 pounds
    on my 6th week of TRT

    I restarted SS this last time about 5 weeks ago. Had to take a week off for a house move and overtraining (stupid me increased weight too fast). What follows is my log after that week off and a 10% reset.

    Squat: 185x3x5
    Felt light as it should

    Press: 100x3x5
    Surprisingly light, flew up

    Deadlift: 235x1x5 rh supinated
    Did these at gym. So had to lower more gently than I would with my bumpers at home. Still no problem tho

    TRT: 6th week. Doc upped dosage to 170mg/wk from 140mg. Can tell an energy difference with new dose.

    Slow and steady wins the race that is strength training.

    Squat: 190x3x5
    Bench press: 150x3x5
    Power clean: 100x5x3

    Some residual soreness but not too bad. Some knee pain starting to creep in--aggravated by cleans. Cleans felt particularly good. My technique is soooo much better than it was 6 years ago--which was more heave than snap.

    I think the third time will be the charm too!! Especially now that you're logging on here. Logging on here was a great decision and definitely helps keep me consistent.

    Felt flat. Test crash? Food and sleep have been ok. Would like to get to 225 squat before switching to 10 # increments per week.

    Went up 20 on dead. RH supinated. Everything pretty easy. Shouldn't have reset couple of weeks ago. Feel like I'm wasting time.
