NOTES
Before starting this program, I had reset the weights. Working the higher rep ranges, especially on squat, kicked a$$ last week. Lower reps seemed easy. Higher reps in press and rows doesn't seem to be a problem. As a result, breezed through the entire workout.

I will follow the same structure for now, but if the high rep squats still feel tough next couple of days, I will squat for reps and deadlift heavy at the beginning of the week when I am fresh, and push the heavy day for squat to the end. For now though, no tinkering for a couple of weeks.
kitarpyar,
Since you posted in my log I spent a few minutes reading over yours. You appear to be performing a lot of similar exercises each session. OHP and Bench Press, Power Cleans and Barbell Rows. Have you considered eliminating the redundant movements? You mentioned Rippetoe in your log so I am assuming you are familiar with his philosophy. You might consider squatting 3 days a week for 3 sets of 5 reps (sets across) adding weight each an every session if you get all 5 reps for 3 sets.
Since you are getting a lot of martial arts work in you might consider lowering the volume in the weight room. Less chance of getting injured or aggravating existing injuries.
You are 185 lbs. What is your age? You say you are a novice have you read this: http://startingstrength.com/index.ph...t#.UxZDV1w2q3Y
or this: http://startingstrength.com/index.ph...o#.UxZDg1w2q3Y

Good luck lifting!

Thanks for the link. I am 34.

Yes, I am familiar with Rippetoe. I was adding weight each session, squatting thrice a week - till it stalled around 230 lbs. I am trying to drop some chub, and am basically on a deficit - which may be the reason.

Hence the switch to H/L/M instead of adding weights each sets.

Default Warm ups

Kit,
This App:

I found to extremely helpful. You punch in the weight you want to use for your work sets and it tells you the proper weight and reps to warm up with. It is available for Android too.

Hence the switch to H/L/M instead of adding weights each sets.
H/L/M is an intermediate to advanced training program.
The "old school" method, circa 1930's through 1960's, had you squatting 3 days a week, additionally they were doing presses, clean & jerks, power cleans, power snatches, front squats; all kinds of derivatives of the contested lifts.
When guys got too strong to recover from Monday's workout, let's say it was 450 lbs for 5 reps sets across, they had to change the programming. Wednesday's workout of 455 lbs would be too hard to make all of the reps. They could no longer make progress daily. They had to try to make progress weekly.
You should not be on an intermediate program with a 230 lb squat.
You may not care about programming your work sets but I wanted you to be aware of what H/L/M was designed for. Optimally you would be best served with a Linear Progression program if you are concerned about training.
If you are simply exercising to get a "six pack" then none of this matters.

Hey Kit. I hope I am not being to forward here. I made a lot of mistakes when I started lifting. Age 35. Had places like this been around in 2002...
Anyway, just trying to help. Now I will stop offering unsolicited comments.
