Back in Feb I had never weight lifted. I had been playing hockey for 9 years pretty consistently and that's about it.
I was tired of being skinny fat so I did the vdiet and started really educating myself about lifting, nutrition, etc. I'm constantly reading and learning while at the same time just trying to keep things simple for myself until I have at least a year or so under my belt.
I just did 3 months of Starting Strength and made really good progress but stalled super hard for a few weeks right before a cross country trip I was taking. My bench was regressing, my squat was getting higher, and my OHP hadn't moved in a long time.
I want to give 5/3/1 a few sessions to see how I responded to that. If I'm still not progressing very well I'll probably go back to starting strength and do GOMAD.

Hang leg raise
I'm starting light like Welder says to do in the book. So I used 300\250\150 as my maxes. The hangboard is a rock climbing board. I basically do a ton of hanging on slopers. Stuff like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn5XmlnC3Jw Jumping between holds, and pull ups on slopers or doing more leg raises.
I'll start posting my logs on Monday. I'm one week in.
