    Strange that you posted that here and not in my log though lol

    Squats felt light, but presses felt a tad heavy. I might start micro loading soon, since I feel I started too high. I was happy about finally being back up to 150 lbs, still a lot of weight left to gain, though.

    Thanks, Mike. The thing I like about Starting Strength is you can make progress every single workout. I guess that just comes with being a novice.

    As much as I'd like to start using the big plates, that would screw up my linear progression. I know it's not a big deal and I'm sure I could handle a few 10 lb jumps, but mentally it would be annoying. My plan is to keep it nice and consistent to get back up to higher weights.

    That's what I was thinking, but it would be a hassle to change plates. I will try 115 lbs next time, though.

    Good workout bro, I agree with mjw8204 on the 115 warm up. 5 reps and you're good to go.

    Thanks, Eric. The plan is to continue that progress.

    Thanks, Matt. I think some exercises will take longer to get back to where I was, especially press. That is already getting heavy, and the bar speed is getting slower.

    Looks like the progress is still going well.

    I despise those Military Presses....lol. I really do.

    Any updated weight goals and lift goals you're aiming for?

    It's good to see you're making steady progress, congrats. If you're looking for suggestions one thing I think you'll want to begin doing is structuring your warm-up sets differently. Doing 2x5 with the bar (or 1x10 like I prefer) is smart, and going up to 95 on the squat is a good idea. But it's very helpful, especially when the weights are heavy, to have some warm-up very close to your working weight. So if you're going to squat 155 you might want to consider

    45 x 10 (or 2x5)
    95 x 3
    120 x 2
    140 x 1
    155 3x5

    This really gets your CNS ready for the weight since you get to feel something very heavy on your back or in your hands, but by doing only one rep you won't tire yourself out.

    Just keep at it and you'll get there in no time.

    Thanks, PokLim. I always feel that my shoulders are always sore when I get to the presses. Maybe I just need some more stretching?

    My goals are still the same as the first post, so nothing new there.

    Thanks for taking the time to write that up. I totally understand that, and I will start having more warm-up sets once the weight gets heavier.
