    Hey all, my name is Matt and welcome to my beginner linear progression log.

    Age: 32
    Height: 5'6" (170cm)
    Weight: 160lbs (72.5kgs)
    Location: Ontario, Canada

    I have zero experience in weight lifting but a friend of mine who is also doing the Starting Strength program has introduced me to this program and is coaching me through it and I am 100% committed to making this work for me. My goal with the program is to add on at least 20lbs and in general, be stronger and healthier.

    I am currently using my friends home gym setup for my workouts but I have also taken the plunge and have purchased all the necessary equipment to get me started on my own, however it will not be set up for a couple weeks still. I am 6 sessions in so far and have been loving it. I feel excited the day of workouts to get lifting and to add to my progression. My forms are nowhere near perfect but I have been watching lots of videos and reading up on these forums to help with that. I started my workouts at minimal weight due to my lack of experience with lifting and my size being small but I am feeling good so far with no major pain issues.

    The 6 workouts I have done so far are as follows:

    9/25/2019
    Squat: 45 x 5 x 3
    Bench: 45 x 5 x 3
    Deadlift: 65 x 5

    9/28/2019
    Squat: 55 x 5 x 3
    Bench: 55 x 5 x 3
    Deadlift: 80 x 5

    9/30/2019
    Squat: 65 x 5 x 3
    Bench: 65 x 5 x 3
    Deadlift: 95 x 5

    10/02/2019
    Squat: 80 x 5 x 3
    Bench: 75 x 5 x 3
    Deadlift: 110 x 5

    10/05/2019
    Squat: 95 x 5 x 3
    Bench: 80 x 5 x 3
    Deadlift: 125 x 5

    10/07/2019
    Squat: 105 x 5 x 3
    Bench: 85 x 5 x 3
    Deadlift: 135 x 5

    The weights are starting to feel heavy but I am still managing with not too much slowing down on the reputations. In the 2 weeks I've been on the program I have had 0 weight gain but have overall felt better with my body with no visible gains. I have been doing my best in eating more and have been getting in my daily protein so hopefully I will soon see some improvement.

    Thank you for checking out my log and please feel free to comment with any tips or advice you may have for me and I will make sure to also check out your own logs.

    Welcome! any reason you are not rotating between bench and press each session?

    Squat: 125 x 5 x 3
    Bench: 95 x 5 x 3
    Deadlift: 155 x 5

    The squat and bench are feeling really heavy at these weights. I finally had met some resistance doing these lifts so will be going with 5 pound increments going forward for both these lifts. Deadlift still felt good.

    Hi Michael, thanks for checking my log. I hadn't learned the proper press form to begin but I have now and will be alternating these going forward now.
