    Andy's beginner rippetoe journal

    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)

    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.
