  • average human female moving arbitrarily sized weights through space

    Hi! My friend convinced me to try strength training (instead of my usual cardio bunny stuff) and pointed me towards this section of the internet space. Watched a lot of Jordan and Austin's content before I actually started training and have to say I like what I hear so far.

    A bit about me: human female, born from the womb 26 years ago, 5 feet 2 inches in stature, and a mass of 120 pounds. No prior athletic history except for some on and off 'exercising' for a few years. Mostly jogging!

    I just started Starting Strength 2 weeks ago. Mr. Alan Thrall indirectly teaching me the lifts via the YouTubes

    I am actually not entirely sure what my goals are yet. I'm such a girl in the sense that "I don't want to get bulky". Even though I know that's not how it works I suppose I just give getting stronger a shot and see how it goes. I've never been able to stick to an exercise routine either, so maybe the journey of 'training' will help me stick to it.

    Logs really help me stay accountable so I'll try my best to keep one up here for my own sake.

    Squat

    75 x 5 x 3

    Started with the empty bar and so far it hasn't been too hard

    Press
    37.5 x 5 x 3

    Haha...I could not lift the empty bar for even 1 rep my first day. Luckily my gym has a 25 pound bar I can use.

    Deadlift
    95 x 5 x 1

                    I'm a pretty big fan of this log's title haha. Glad to see more human females moving weights through space using largely arbitrary movement patterns.
