Default Spartigus' SS/MMA Log

Hey M&B!

I think its time to start my log!!! I train using the Novice Starting Strength routine by Mark Rippetoes, its a 3x5 routine. I also own the book, which is a GREAT read for anyone who loves the big 5! Goes into a LOT of detail!!

My one is: -

Workout A
Squat 3x5
Bench Press 3x5
Deadlift 3x5
Assistance work: Dips 2xfailure

Workout B
Squat 3x5
OHP 3x5
Powercleans 5x3
Assistance Work: Wide/Rev Grip Narrow Pullups 2xfailure

Notes:-
Squats - These are BELOW parallel, and the heels at shoulder width with feet at around 30 degrees, as outlined in Starting Strength
Bench - These are with arched back, feet planted, and pausing on chest then press for EACH rep

I am 5"11, and weigh 85kgs (187lbs), my BF% is around 12%, I can see my top 4 abbs.


I also train MMA 2-3 times a week as well, sessions are normally drills and/or sparring, depending on which days I go.

EDIT:
I have been on this routine for about 2 months now, and I am LOVING it!!!

One more note:- I hurt my lower back fairly badly a year or so ago, and I has only just recovered fully (maybe 1 month ago). It affected everything from walking normally to lifting, so for a while my back held me back.
