I've been screwing around with squat form and bad eating for a few weeks now. It's about time I make a thread to hold myself to a consistent routine.

Background: No lifting experience beyond a few weeks of learning the basics of the big compound movements

stats: 5 10, 205, fat as hell.

Goal: 180 at 10%. Balls to the wall till I get there.

Diet:

breakfast: 1/2 cup oats, 2.5 scoops powder, 1 banana, 2 fish oil caps
11:00am: 10 oz chicken, broccoli/greens, 1 oz peanuts, 2 fish oil caps
4:00pm: 10 oz chicken, broccoli/greens, rice/potato(150kcal)
pwo: 2.5 scoops powder, 1 cup oats, apple

kcals: 2166 fat: 40.5 pro: 237

2 days a week, do 4 egg yolks in place of banana and rice



First workout: 1/09/11:

BB Squat: 3x5x155
BB Deadlift: 1x5x135 (I feel like I don't know wtf I'm doing on this exercise. No confidence. I'll take a vid and post for critique next session)
DB press: 3x5x45
DIPS: 2x8 BW (BC Andy the Intellectual couldn't figure out how to work the belt)

good luck with the training, any reason why you added Dips?

Hey man, thanks for dropping by. I added dips as per this thread:

No other reason. Do you think I should drop them?

I wouldn't say that you have to drop them, it's a variation that is pretty common and definitely reasonable. If you're going to do powercleans it should read 5 sets of 3 instead of 3 sets of 5. Otherwise rows are perfectly fine as well.

Good luck with the program.
