    Ok I am back in action, pretty sad I stopped for so long... I stopped following the Westside, because I felt its a more advanced than the level I am at.
    Then I started some stupid "online routine", then I stopped altogether.
    Enough of that, I am starting Starting Strength program- I love the simplicity of it.

    squats- 3x5x185
    Bench- 3x5x185
    deadlift- 1x5x315

    didnt get to dips, got pushed out of weightroom by basketball team. but its ok because I was really beat.
    I have had some drastic decreases in bench and squats- I suppose thats my punishment for stopping.
