You're getting in and getting things done, and better than I am.  8)

What is this 'unique PA holiday' of which you speak? I am uninformed.

First day of Buck Season. 

Really worn myself out over the past 3 days, so chose sleep over gym time.

Ah yes, first day of buck. It is a holiday since I get off for it. Don't hunt though so it's just another paid holiday for me. ;)

Squats 5x5 @ 95#
BB BP 5x5 @ 115#
BOR 5x5 @ 85#

Yup, defaulted to SL 5x5, with the little mod of Front Squats on opposite days of Back Squats.

Feeling good about these poundages for starting points. 

Life's good.

A little stiffness from yesterday, nothing too bad. Feeling good on these poundages as a starting point.

One day of rest turned into two. Back at it.


Squats 5x5 @ 105#
BB BP 5x5 @ 125#
BOR 5x5 @ 105#

Short and sweet.

Been starting to address nutrition.  Just looking to increase awareness about what I'm shoveling into my pie hole.

Standard weight increases and just feeling it out. I bumped up the BOR by 20 instead of 10. Everything else has been by 10#, and as I approach my limits I'll reign that back to 5# jumps.

Good plan.
I well remember how weight gets heavy fast on 5x5.  :o

Yup,  starting off a bit low is always wise when it comes to a progressive resistance program like SL 5x5.  I'm assuming that everything is at about 60%, bumping a little aggressive until it gets real challenging.  I'm actually looking forward to the failure and reset.  It's been too long since the weights scared me.

I think with this mornings early session that everything is about right, but we'll see in the next day or two. 

_________________________________________
ION, typical nutrition plan coming together. Calories king, protein queen.  Focusing right now on awareness and consistency, not going to do any tracking or restricting until after the Christmas holiday weekend.  New years isn't really anything more than a late shift for me anyways.  Really gotta get some of this extra weight off that I've accumulated since starting this job last year and not making time for training.

Cheers.

Great day for some afternoon iron.  Funny how much easier everything is lifting midday versus rolling out of bed. Broke a good sweat.

Squats 5x5 @ 115#
BB BP 5x5 @ 135#
BOR 5x5 @ 115#

Got a nice mini pump off the benchpresses. 

Cheers.

Hoping to double up another 2 sessions this week as Saturday won't get one in and I'll probably be burnt out too bad to do anything productive Sunday morning.

Squats 5x5 @ 125#
Benchpress 5x5 @ 145#
BOR 5x5 @ 125#

Every movement was a bit challenging by the 3rd set. That'll teach me to do three days in a row.  So I'll be outie the next two then back at it Sunday.

Weights moving up fast. If you're increasing 10 every time you'll be at 185 for squats in 2 weeks.
Me....I went 10 total each week versus each session like SS has after the first time. Felt a lot better.
