I have been doing starting strength consistently now for about a month, adding weight as instructed.
MY lifts (all 3x5, warm-up not included):
Squat 135 1st workout. 235 most recent, doing 245 today.
Bench 135, 160 last workout. going for 165 Wed.
Front press 85 1st. Last 105, going for 110 today.
Deadlift 135 1st. 235 last going for 265 today.
So I have been getting stronger. In fact last friday I did an extra set of bench @ 160 for reps and did it for 12x. I already have started adding 30 lbs at dead lifts My question is should I put more weight on the bar? Can I add 10 lbs per workout for upper body lifts for awhile? I am hesitant because I want to keep this going for at least 2-3 more months. Any advice would be appreciated
I would consider myself detrained, not a complete novice. my previous maxes were:
not sure about the press but used to use 135 x10 reps.
