    I'm changing my routine to do SL Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday so I can do my nutritional cleanse on Mondays. I was finding it impossible to cleanse on lifting days and very difficult on recovery days so this way I can cleanse on my second day off and that day doesn't fall on a weekend. So, my first Saturday workout:

    Squat: [email protected], [email protected]
    OHP: [email protected]
    Deadlift: [email protected]

    I will repeat this OHP weight because while I felt strong, I was kind of throwing the weight up instead of doing clean lifts. I was supposed to deadlift 145 but I could not get it off the ground. I may need to increase by 5s and not 10s on that one. I also have to do the alternate grip now.

    After squats and spinning on Friday, I could have done with a rest day but we needed to switch our gym days this weekend so I did back to back days meaning less in the bar on Saturday.

    SQ 5X5 @60kgs. Used as an opportunity to really sink deep.
    OHP 5X5 @27.5kgs
    DL 2x3 @ 82.5kgs.

    Then a kettlebell HIIT session.

    Looking forward to my rest day today, that's for sure!!

    Week 2, Workout A

    Squats 5x5 @ 75
    Bench 5x5 @ 55
    Row 5x5 @ 60

    Squats starting to get tougher. Bench still feels too easy, I figured out how to reset to go up by 5 lbs each time. I'm sure that won't last long. My form on my last row was crap, but just due to hurrying. Going to look for more formal videos on that to make sure I'm doing it right. Mehdi doesn't discuss form on that lift as much as the others.

    Good day today. Went up on BP and Row. I tried to increase on my squat but I was almost tipping over. We don't have smaller than 5lb increases at the gym and I forgot my 2 lbs homemade ones at home. Will try again on Wednesday.

    Week 3/Workout A
    Squats: 5x5 @ 54lbs
    Bench Press: 5x5 @ 49lbs
    Pendlay Row: 5x5 @ 49lbs

    Additional:
    Flyes: 2x8 @ 10lbs
    Reverse Flyes: 2x8 @ 10lbs
    Planks: 3 @ 40sec

    I think I'm going to deload a bit on the squats. My form was awful and I need to focus more on that than the weight. The rows aren't as bad, but I may do the same there. Bench press was hard, but I did it.

    I'm increasing the number of sets to 3 for the additional exercises starting Wednesday.

    A so so session for me today after work.

    SQ 3/5/5/5/[email protected] 72.5kg
    BP 5X5 @42.5kgs this was to today.
    Row 5/5/5/5/4 @50kgs.....a new best.

    Wasn't really feeling it, though. I think the rowing I did before work took more out of me than I have credit for!

    iwillnotbedepressedaboutoverheadpress. iwillnotbedepressedaboutoverheadpress. iwillnotbe . . . . poop.

    this is supposed to be 5/3/1 week but i didn't actually do 5/3/1 anything. the place was mobbed and equipment was hard to come by.

    i did try to freeform my 55/65/70 pounds for overhead press, but i didn't make it . . . i can't even clean 70 pounds safely, much less press it once i've got the clean done. i did as much as i could, which was a couple sets of three at 60, probably at least one rep at 65. and then i did a bunch of compensation work instead. rows @70, some light deadlifts for form, pulldowns/scapular retractions, and 5x5 squats at 75. and fwiw, i got in the rack and at least did some static holds for the press with 75 pounds, the whole 'make a shelf' thing and all that.

    the squats were noteworthy though. i did them in my flat shoes and as far as i KNOW the form was okay. i just can't tell, although i can note that it seemed like i had a lot more hamstring/glutes in it than usual and i felt pretty strong. technically, my top squat weight this week is supposed to be 100 pounds, but i'll save that up for some other day.

    recovery food: creme caramel made with regular milk, not cream, and only a little sugar. hey, it's got protein and carbs.

    I'm a newbie so not stepping up for any thread-starting, pun or otherwise...

    Week 2, Workout B

    Squat 5x5, 80 lbs
    OHP 5x5 45 lbs (yeah!)
    DL 1x5 100 lbs

    Thanks so much for the rubber plate suggestion on the deadlift. I think it is still a little low (probably should've used 2) but was definitely better.

    I just started back on actual stronglifts since breaking to run a different program. In all honesty I missed the strength focus of SL. (I did keep a lot of the compounds in but not as frequently as I should have to gain/maintain my strength)

    Squats - 1x5 @ 45, 1x5 @ 65, 1x5 @ 95, 5x5 @ 120
    OHP - 2x5 @ 45, 5x5 @ 70
    Deadlift - 1x5 @ 135, 2x5 @ 165 - I was supposed to do 175 on my last set but I stepped away to grab chalk and forgot to add weight to the bar!!! Haha! Oops!

    Today my hips are hurting. When I last ran SL my hips caused some issues, which is why I moved to a more glute strengthening program. I really hope this doesn't flare up again...I love squats...WHY CANT THEY LOVE ME?! :(
