After much consideration and users suggesting I go to Starting Strength, I humbly obliged.
I have never seriously trained anything or in particular the deadlift, squat, bent over row, military press, or bench press. Now's my chance with this program!
I'll be posting pics up as I go along.
As for the workout I started with MADCOWS last week and switched to Starting strength this week I felt the workout from Madcows was similar to the one I`d be doing in workout A so I started with workout B on monday for this week.
This is what my second day looked like Week 2 Day 3 Workout A
Week 2 Day 3:
Squat - 100lbs 3 set of 5 reps 27.5lb on each side. I`ll try adding 5lbs on friday equaling 32.5lb totaling 110lbs.
Bench - 85lbs 2 set of 5 reps 20lbs on each side. I`ll try adding 5lbs on monday each side totaling 95lbs.
Deadlift - 95lbs 1 set of 5 reps 25lbs on each side. I`ll try adding 27.5 lb on each side on monday totaling 100lbs.
I`m not sure if I add the barbell weight on top of the weights I add on each side lol.
My main problem with this workout was the bench I came in doing warmup sets of 10lb on each side, than 15lb on each side, than 20lb eachside. Worked my way up to 25 as my working sets. However, at this point I failed could barely get through to the 3rd rep. So I downed the weight to 20lb on eachside and could only handle 2sets of 5reps. Is doing warmup sets for the bench not necessary? I felt I drained myself before I could get to my working sets.
As for the squat and deadlift I did similar warmup sets and everything was fantastic. Besides a strange numbness in my lower back area after doing the deadlift. As I'm writing this it feels to have gotten better but still a little tight/numb weird sensation. A raise for concern? Oh and also does the sequence of the workout matter? I did the bench first, than squat, and deadlift.
My goal with this program is to get toned and gain strength.
Oh and also I'll be taking pre workout Assault MP.
Any tips or advice will be much appreciated, I'll post an update to this log every time I've done a workout.
