Default Jwood's Starting Strength

Here is my log of my current workout, I can not promise to update this all the time but I will do my best to update it once a week at least.

Workout A Workout B
Squat 5x5 Deadlift 5x5
Bench 5x5 Military Press 3x8
Barbell Row 5x5 Pullups 3xfail
Tricep 2x10 Incline Press 3x8
Shrug 1x10 Bicep Curl 2x10

These workouts are done 3 days a week, alternating
ex. Week 1, A,B,A Week 2 B,A,B

My current stats are 6 feet tall and 214 pounds. I have been doing this workout for almost 2 weeks I will post my current weights later on tonight or tomorrow, critiques are welcome

Good to have you here Jwood. The first one to a 350 bench buys the protein drink!

I always had the same feeling with BB Rows. I stay away from them...just never liked them. I do T-Bars and DB Rows.

Man, Jwood, the more I look at your numbers, the more I see natural powerlifter. Whatever you do...bodybuilding, strength training, or whatever, just keep adding more plates.

I thought I was a beast at 20 being able to do reps with squats @350. You have me beat and then some.

By the time your thirty you'll be deadlifting houses. I didn't even reach my matured strength until close to 30.

And I hope to see you push through and get over 1,350.

How is your lower back feeling? If you are feeling no ill effects from your current deadlift program, don't change. Especially if you're going up in weight.

I find that I need at least a few heavy singles each week to keep my strength up. I did 10 rest paused @ 405 for months, and my max didn't jump up. But when I add in a few singles, it goes up.

You are doing the right thing (IMHO) doing the lighter rep work last. It will feel lighter, and make the training feel like it's moving along.

bwys61 is more of a straight powerlifter then me, so don't hesitate to pick his brain.

It sounds like your lower back is the weak part of the chain, which is great news. Being that up in strength, and your deadlift will go up.

My lower back never gets sore. It's always my upper back.

Maybe you could add in some good mornings on deadlift day every other week on a light deadlift day. Just thinking out loud. i am a huge fan of good mornings for both deads and squats. They really helped me.

But again, if your deadlift is going up...don't tweak anything just yet. Stick with what works

You got it bud, I think I am going to include the bulldozer style for bench press every once in a while, I have also been substituting t-bar rows and barbell rows everyother workout. I feel as though I cheat a lot when I do barbell rows, but t-bar helps keep better form.

I am not positive on my goals now, I have been giving some thought into doing a powerlifting competition after I see what my numbers get to. So right now I am really just trying to get stronger while not really worrying about weight as long as I stay under 220 for another year.

Goal: 3 lift total- 1350
Squat- 450
Deadlift-550
Bench-350

Current weights (using a max calculator and my 5 rep maxes)
Total-1215
Squat-420
Bench-315
Deadlift-480

These should be close to my maxes and my goal is to get this as soon as possible and then create new goals!! So, I guess I am bulking.
