Thanks, Kira. It's not as detailed day-to-day anymore as I don't feel the need to keep copy-pasting out of my personal journal.
Another solid week and I am back on track!
I feel good about my weight goals, in fact I'll probably exceed at least a couple of them, as I'm pretty close already. I've never lifted this heavy before so I'm just not sure how my progress is going to pan out from here, so I set moderate goals. I think the toughest one will be the deadlift goal, as I'm farthest away on that.
Strength training week 30 of Stronglifts 5x5 program, 3x5 phase
Body: 191.4 lbs. According to my scale I've stayed the same all week.Current High Sets:
Squat: 3x5 @ 275 lbsOHP: 5,3,4 @ 130 lbs
Deadlift: 1x5 @ 315 lbs
Bench: 3x5 @ 175 lbs
Row: 3x5 @ 175 lbs
Didn't think I'd make the OHP on the first go at this weight, but still did pretty well. Push pressed the missed reps to complete the sets. Felt myself arching my back pretty badly the first set, paid attention to it and corrected my posture for the rest. Deadlift was rough, did 2 overhanded then 3 over-under. Form was great on all warmups, but still became a bit stiff-legged on the work weight. My back doesn't feel tight or sore from them, so I probably used a little more legs than the last time I lifted 315. Still happy though and looking forward to upping the weight next time.
