Tackling Starting Strenght


Same I should have picked classes 5 months of go, just doing it now.


Some days just don’t go well.

170x5x1 170x4x1 170x3x1
295x5x1 330x1x2

Skin is gone, i think i am going to get gloves to let them heal.


Squat 295x(5/4/3) OHP 125x4 120x4 120x3 Clean 155x5x3


Have not made good progress, so i think i really need to look at where i am messing up. Most likely the 5 hours a sleep or maybe not enough food.

Changed my squat, I’ll have a video up later but of course the weight went down, but i think the form is a lot better.

I would save the extra food for when you start to plateau. Most of your initial gains will be CNS and you won’t need to be in surplus.

Good luck, in for the follow.


That was 7 years ago I am not running starting strength anymore.


I thought I had scrolled to the bottom, my apologies for not noticing the dates.

Feel like a loser.
