Hey guys, just joined and all that good stuff. Been lurking threads for a few days and thought it would be worth joining since I see friendly people for the most part. I used to work out years ago, but come to find that I never did it right, so I never got the results I wanted. I never learned properly, so I just thought lifting whatever I could would give me muscle and weight. I never did lower body, and I had terrible form for everything else.
I just got some weights and such, so I started doing Starting Strength from my buddies advice along with eating how I should, and I also got my little brother out of his sedentary lifestyle a little bit. Im 5’10", 120lbs (pathetic, I know). These are my lifts at the moment. Theyre all very very low, yes, but Im going with the idea that its better to start too low than too high. Ive been on the program for about 3 weeks, and Ive gained 5lbs.
Bench - 115x3x5
OHP - 70x3x5
Squat - 105x3x5
Deadlift - 100x1x5
Powerclean - 55x5x3
I havent tested my 1RM on any of them, Im just trying to stay true to the SS program and not stray from it. Just a little bit about me, and I hope to be posting proud results and progress in time as well as getting to know you guys.
