Got2Squat is off to a bad start
Default Got2Squat's novice linear progression log

I am currently in week 16 of my first ever strength training program. I am doing the StrongLifts 5x5 program, although I have progressed into doing 3x5 for all exercises. I was 42 when I started the program, 5'8" tall and 156 pounds. The program is three days a week, so I run it Monday, Wednesday, Friday with weekends off. The extra rest on weekends has been coming in handy.
Workout A:
Squat
Press
Deadlift
(Chins)

Workout B:
Squat
Bench
BB Row

I started doing chins around week 14. My starting weights were:
Squat: 70 lbs
Press: 55
Bench: 95
Row: 75
DL: 95

OK, so today's workout is a fastforward from day one to current:

Stronglifts 3x5, Monday week 16:
179 lbs (and now age 43)

Squat:
275 3x5 (+5) Have not stalled or deloaded on this yet, but feel like I am getting close

Press: Rehab from hurting my shoulder week 12 or so
85 3x5 (+10) 65% of 5RM

DL:
335 1x5 (+5) No stall or deload yet, should progress for a while here
375 x 1 (+20) PR Not a true 1RM, just a heavy single. Don't want to mess up recovery.

Chins:
BW x 15, 14, 10 Little tired from the heavy single I think.
