Training Log: 11/12 - 11/14/10

Rest Days...

Taking the next three days off to fully recover and hit the ground running hard with Starting Strength on Monday. The plan is to make Monday, Wednesday and Friday my strength days in the evenings and do whatever is programmed in the gym in the mornings. My strength work will follow this schedule:

Day 1 & 3
Squat: 3x5
Press: 3x5
Power Clean: 5x3

Day 2
Squat: 3x5
Bench: 3x5
Deadlift: 1x5

This is a rough outline subject to change each week based around the programming of my gym. My starting weight for the squat will be 95 lbs. All other starting weights will be 50% of my 1 rm.  Each workout I will add 10 lbs to the working sets of my squats; so initially I'll be moving up 30 total pounds per week. All other lifts will increase by 5 lbs each workout, except for deadlifts which will also increase by 10 lbs each workout. This progression will continue until I am unable to complete the lifts, at which point I'll only increase the weight by 5 lbs each workout. This will continue for 8 weeks. After that, I'll take a week off and reevaluate my lift totals, see what kind of progress I've made, and decide whether to continue with Starting Strength or move onto 5/3/1.
