All that crap looks so wacky! I'll be finishing Starting Strength this week.
I now weigh between 135 and 140. Still tiny.
Squat: 210 x 5. (Hips to the same level as knees. The squats in previous installments of this log were more like "90 degrees." At least I THOUGHT they were parallel.)
Deadlift: 215 x 5. (There's a lot of room here. And I have pretty short arms and legs.)
Bench press: 145 x 5
OHP: 95 x 5 (Ew.)
My pectoral powered hooks have failed to PR though LOL.
Starting a version of the Texas Method on Monday:
THE ALMIGHTY PLAN:
Monday [High Volume/Moderate Intensity]
Squat 5X5 (This is not a 5RM. Start low-ish. No HUGE rests should be needed.)
Power clean and push press 6X3 (On alternating weeks - Bench Press 5x5)
Rhomboid dominant barbell row (focusing on scapular retraction and depression, almost a face pull. Hold at the top for a second.) 3X8
Wednesday [Low Volume/Low Intensity]
Back Squat 2X5 (@80% of 5RM [~90% of 5x5 weight])
Bench Press 2X5 (On alternating weeks - OHP 2x5)
Ab wheel rollout 2x10 or something *(Not super important)
Curl 3x8-10 (hold at middle) *(Not super important)
Weighted dips or triceps extensions 3x8-10 *(Not super important)
Friday [Low Volume/High Intensity]
Push Press 1X1 (Ramping to a max single) (On alternating weeks - Bench Press)
Rhomboid dominant barbell row (focusing on scapular retraction and depression, almost a face pull. Hold at the top for a second.) 2x5
