Tyler Colp's Training Log

So, I’ve started the “Starting Strength” routine, and although I’ll be making a few minor modifications, I’m liking this program thus far.

Day 1:
3 x 5 - Squat
3 x 5 - Bench Press
1 x 5 - Rack Deadlifts
2 x 8 - Dips
2 x 12 - Leg Press Calf Raises

Day 2:
3 x 5 - Squat
3 x 5 - Standing Military Press
3 x 5 - Bent Barbell Rows
2 x 8 - Chin-Ups
2 x 12 - Lying Leg Curls

The normal program wouldn’t call for Calf Raises or Hamstring isolation work. But since by the end of my workout I’m too exhausted to Deadlift, I’ll be doing Rack Pulls, which have very little hamstring involvement. So, I’ll need some hamstring exercise, and calf work is just personal.

*I’ll only be posting working sets.
