My first journal and my time using a solid routine
i bought the book of starting strength and got it yesterday
and have been readying it ever since learning alot.
HEIGHT 6'3 to tall!!!
WEIGHT 184:eek: I need to gain weight!

SQUAT
BARX10
95X10
135x2x6
155x5

New to squats changing form different sets
i was doing parallel squats it seemed like when i stuck my ass out way more
and had good hip drive it was alot easier.
155 is actually a bit heavy its kind of sad but you gotta start somewhere.
i will bring a camera and post a video of these three lifts for some criq.


DEADLIFT
245x1x6

I feel much more comfortable with this lift i could of done more weight'
this is currently my favorite lift and i can do the most weight with it :evillaugh:

BENCHPRESS

135x9
135x7
135x5

I have a pretty weak chest i am hopping i can change that !
I didn't do the right weight on all of the lifts and i understand that
I just didn't know what i could do so i just did lighter then i thought
as for the bench i didn't have a spotter ( my gym was empty )
and i didn't pull a bench into the squat rack.


Here are some pictures-

Just a little advice

With this program you should start with a relatively light weight and add 5 pounds each workout, or else you will quickly stall out, like I did

Good luck with the lifting and adding muscle to your frame, there's more to fill in at your height.

added 5 pounds i could feel the difference
at the end the workout and even know
from when i first starting lifting with my legs
they can't be as sore as they should be but
what i lifted today seems like i couldn't go any heavier .

DEADLIFT

i didn't realize how much more weight i put on then last time i did deads
i was wondering why it was so much harder
i should lower it some so i don't mess up my form
