  • Cole's Strength Log

    Cole
    mid 30's
    wife, 3 boys.

    Im starting a new log bc i just purchased the Strength I template and will begin next week. Did a little strength training in college while i wrestled, after that lifted like a chump until i found starting strength, bought some shoes, did LP and got a little strong but as i discovered the online world, realized im not strong at all. Did some HLM and TM, now im looking to progress with the BBM methods as i like them more. My latest attempts at self programming have not been successful, so i figured id pay a few bucks to have some more intelligent people set up my training. I want to get strong, but also incorporate some GPP and cardio for general health. If i like the strength I, ill move on to the powerlifting II. I also have been logging here for a few years. time to get to work.

              week 2

              squat w/belt - 425x1, 395x5, 340x5x2
              TnG bench - 320x1, 305x4, 290x4x2
              DL w/chains - 225x5, 275x5, 315x5x2 (+90 lbs chain)

              -->started off slow today, squat technique has gotten worse over the last year. not going to depth, not getting a good stretch reflex, lacking confidence...overall session was good and the chains are a blast. i actually rated the DL overload movement accurately yet overshot the squat which is funny considering it was the first time DLing with chains and ive been squatting now for 3 years and overshot RPE on them.

                      week 3 - bodyweight=220

                      squat w/belt - 425x1, 395x5, 345x5x3sets
                      TnG bench - 325x1, 305x4, 290x4x3
                      DL w/chains - 225x5, 275x5, 315x5x2

                      -->lots of work today. top single squats and top set felt better than last week, rpe adjusted correctly this time so same weight but an improvement. need to stay tight and under control, slower descent on squat and bench. working on not rounding back for deads, keeping shoulders tight and retracted upon initiating the pull.

                        strict press no belt - 95x8, 105x8, 125x8x3

                        -->bench feeling good, but i need to bring in the grip about an inch. the further out my grip goes, the more my shoulders hurt. gotta find that sweet spot between strength and health.
