I weighed in at 143.8 (7/26), then 143.2 (7/27), then today 143.6. Workout went as followed...

Squats
Warm Up-90x5, 135x5, 155x5
Working Sets-175x5, 175x5, 175x5
Flat DB Bench
Warm Up-20x10, 32.5x5, 42.5x5
Working Sets-50x5, 50x5, 50x5
Deadlift
Warm Up-135x5, 155x5
Working Sets-185x5, 185x5, 185x5

I upped the weights on squats/deadlifts by 50 pounds each. This workout was pretty intense. It felt pretty heavy upping the weights but I believe that's because my body was so use to taking short breaks and lifting fairly light weight these past two weeks. This workout was 46 mins long. I was sweating even after I got out of the shower. Also for my warm up sets I will probably just drop the initial warm up set and just stick to 5 sets. I almost feel like the very first warm up set is a waste for me right now. All in all a great workout though! Will see how the next workout goes.

My power hooks didn't come yet but should be here by my next workout.

Nightttt!

My weight was 144 in the morning today. I got a question for you all, do you believe its sustainable to deadlift 3x a week? After yesterdays workout I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to go heavy 3x a week. I was thinking about deadlifting every other workout. That would give me 2 days rest before I deadlift again. Or will I be okay early on like this? Let me know what you all think...thanks!

I think it is for a novice, but sooner or later it becomes way too taxing to deadlift 3x a week for most if the sets are intense, meaning challenging and focused on progression.

Give every other workout a try.

Weight was 143.8 in the morning. I felt really good for this workout...

Squats
Warm Up-90x5, 135x5
Working Sets-180x5, 180x5, 180x5
Flat DB Bench
Warm Up-30x5, 40x5
Working Sets-52.5x5, 52.5x5, 52.5x5
Deadlifts
Warm Up-135x5, 155x5
Working Sets-190x5, 190x5, 190x5

Like I said this workout I felt really good. I used the power hooks I ordered for the first time and they're so much better than not having them. I don't have to bend down on the floor to put weight on my adjustable dumbbells and it makes benching so much nicer. I dropped the initial warm up sets and decided just to do 5 sets across for each movement and that's so much better for me. Also the plan was to NOT do deadlifts today and do them every other day but, I was feeling so good that I had to do them. For now on I'm just going to play it by how I feel for if I'm going to do deadlifts or not. I think that's a much better idea for me as well. This workout was also 6 mins faster than last workout at only 40 mins. All in all a good saturday and a good workout.

Lataaa guys!

I weighed in at 144.6 (7/31), then today at 144.6 as well. Workout was another good one...

Squats
Warm Up-90x5, 135x5
Working Sets-185x5, 185x5, 185x5
Flat DB Bench
Warm Up-30x5, 40x5
Working Sets-52.5x5, 52.5x5, 55x5
Deadlift
Warm Up-135x5, 155x5
Working Sets-200x5, 200x5, 200x5

This workout was 50 mins. so 10 mins. longer than last workout, but everything went up and I deadlifted again after thinking I wouldn't be able to. I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to deadlift 3 times a week but I'll ride it out as long as I'm feeling fine. I believe my weights will go up pretty quickly, being able to add 10 pounds to my deadlift after deadlifting twice this week is a good indication of that in my opinion. Good first week of actual weights.

Peace!

Weight was 145 (8/2), then 144 for (7/3),(7/4), now today it's 144 also. I decided to give myself another rest day yesterday and I did my workout this morning. I'm going to go back to working out in the morning time again. Workout was as followed...

Squats
Warm Up-90x5, 140x5
Working Sets-190x5, 190x5, 190x5
Flat DB Bench
Warm Up-30x5, 40x5
Working Sets-55x5, 55x5, 55x5
Deadlift
Warm Up-135x5, 155x5
Working Sets-210x5, 210x5, 210x5

Workout was really good this morning. Everything went up and was able to add another 10 pounds to my deadlift again. (I love the deadlift!) This workout was around 53 mins so a tad bit longer than last. Last workout before this one I was not sore at all the next day and my recovery felt really good. I believe it was because my carbs were around 40 grams higer that day than the others. So for today I'm going to aim for 40 more carbs then I normally do and see how my recovery is for tomorrow. I'll let you all know what happens.

Have a great day!

Weight was 144 (8/6), then today 145.2. Workout was as followed...

Working Sets-195x5, 195x5, 195x5
Flat DB Bench

This workout was 55 mins. Felt pretty good for this one. Was able to deadlift once again and upped my weight on everything also. Again great workout!

Later!

LOL just looked on this one and I put (7/3)(7/4) instead of (8/3)(8/4). Was caught up in July!

Weight is going up and squats are going up. Great combination!
