5 sets of 5 @ 95 lbs

OHP:
45x5
65x5

24/11/10:

Squats:
45x5
65x5
95x5
5 sets of 5 @ 105 lbs

Right hip flexor felt weird during these...not painful, just weird. I know I need to stretch out my hip flexors more.

Bench:
45x5
5 sets of 5 @ 75 lbs

Need to buy some 2.5 lb plates. I think I might be ready for 80 lbs, but certainly not 85 lbs (the gym at work only has 5 lb plates, not 2.5, so I have to go up 10 lbs at a time).

Inverted row:
3 sets of 10

Knee push-ups
3 sets of 10 (lame ROM on last set)

Reverse crunches:
3 sets of 10

Arms are shaky now that I'm back at my desk, awesome. Time to eat and get muscles!

Me too. Now that my insurance is all set up I should look into what I'm covered for to see if I can get a better diagnosis. It doesn't hurt all of the time, but about once every two weeks it's just sore as hell for a few hours, then it weirdly goes away. Not related to exercise, it just happens.

Just do more reps at first for legs. For ham's what about deadlifts or the 80's butt lift, that's what I use.

Nah, thanks, but I'm doing a 5x5 program so I can gain strength/put on muscle.
