After messing around for the past two years with a lot of split sessions I found Rippetoes Starting Strength program. I have been doing the program since last four weeks and the gains are good. I exercise on Sunday(I personally prefer to have one workout on a day I don't have to go to work), Tuesday and Thursday. Yesterday, I performed:
Squats: 3x5 75.5KG,
Bench Press: 3x5 55.5KG,(Dunno why but it is lagging behind, I am unable to keep my wrist straight)
Deadlift: 2x5 88.5KG(Call it a WarmUp),
Deadlift: 1x5 93.5KG.
When I had started my stats were Squats: 52.5KG, Bench Press: 35.5KG, OverHead Press: 20KG(Now 40KG) and Deadlifts: 65KG. I think the gains are good, atleast for me. Any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Bulking at 3000 calories(Age: 23, Weight: 68KG, Height: 5'8").
Now the next one is tomorrow.
Hoping to get:
Squats: 3x5 78.5KG,
Overhead Press: 3x5 42KG(Though I tried 5x5 last workout with 40KG but could get to 5,5,4,2,1 and stalled),
Bent over Rows: 3x5 60.5KG.
I am having a hard time around with the pressing exercises(Bench and Overhead), any suggestions on how to improve them.
