6/22/13

Squats: 136 x 5 x 5
BP: 116 x 5 x 5
Rows: 127.2 x 5 x 5
Shrugs: 172.2 x 8 x 3
Skullcrushers: 63.6 x 8 x 3
Curls: 72.2 x 8, 7, 7
Goodmornings: 72.2 x 10 x 2
Crunches: +25lbs x 10 x 3

Finally hit BP at 116! Skullcrushers were very hard...barely completed 8th reps on set 2 and 3. Curls made my whole arms feel tight/swollen. I might lower weight on shrugs to get the form better. Squats are feeling heavy again and I'm still unsure of form...need to work on it...might increase weight slightly just to keep moving.

6/25/13

tired...working on form

Squats: lots of sets with 43.6 lbs just working on form and different setups/styles
OHP: 43.6 x 12 x 3
SLDL: 43.6 x 15
Curls: 43.6 x 15

6/29/13

Squats: still working on form: did 2 sets at each weight, 1 with heels on wood block, 1 without:
43.6 x 5 x 2
72.2 x 5 x 2
102.2 x 5 x 2
122.2 x 5 x 2

BP: 116 x 5 x 5 - basically to failure each set. i'll likely deload and work back up again

Rows: 116 x 5 x 5 - working on form, felt good
Curls: 72.2 x 7, 6, 4
Crunches on ball: + 30 lbs x 10 x 3

felt better this session and legs are taking a beating from slowly working on form and forcing the right parts of my body to stretch and move properly. used a mirror for the light sets. i need to work on ankle mobility, as well as top of the hips to the inside of thighs while staying more upright and keeping my butt from tucking under. heels on the wood block helps but i'd like to have good form from the floor.

8/10/13

Squats: 102.2 x 5 x 5
BP: 102.2 x 5 x 5
Rows: 102.2 x 5 x 5

I'm going to try to stay consistent and do stronglifts.
I'm 5'11", 150 lbs, ~14% BF.
My goal is to get to an intermediate level of strength so I can progress to an intermediate bb routine.
