chewybaws Posted June 8, 2009 Share Posted June 8, 2009 (edited) Last night got my new bench and power rack setup, so started the stronglifts 5x5 beginner program today. Been messing about the past 5 or 6 weeks without a plan or knowing what I was doing lol, time to get serious! A couple of weeks ago I got into the habit of eating every 2/3 hours and the last 4 days I've started eating loads for me. I'm 6ft tall, 152lbs (on an empty stomach first thing this morning). Typical eat plan for a day goes like this just now-Lots of porridge, fruit (most of the time in soy yoghurt), glass of soy milk-100g of nuts, orange-Baked potato, veg (brocolli/spring greens or mixed veg), mock chicken-Clif bar-4 peanut butter sandwiches (wholemeal bread)-wholemeal pasta/tofu/a tin of any bean/veg (same as before) (sometimes with a tomato sauce)-100g of nuts, apples-7 oatcakes (or crackers) with peanut butter(been squeezing in anything extra that i can!) So today's training: 08/06/09 152lbs---------------Squats 20kg 5x5Bench Press 20kg 5x5Inverted rows - i sucked bad at these, i couldn't even get my chest to touch the bar...so about 10 failed reps haha....then i tried again for 2 more sets and got lessPress ups (knuckles) - 15, 10, then 3 (then 4 or 5 on my knees)Reverse crunches - 3x12 The Squats were really easy, been doing these with more weights before, but wanted to start from scratch start getting my technique sorted out and get used to new equipment. Quite happy with the bench press even though the tiny tiny weight lol...first time doing them. Inverted rows were a nightmare, was getting frustrated. Was happy with the pushups, been steadily building on these for about 4 weeks. Reverse crunches were killing me by the end but got them finished with good form. Starting to see a visible difference from adding fat over the last week, which is making me happy =]My goal by at least 2 or 3 months is to reach around or just below 180lbs.
