Rippetoe's Starting Strength
Squat - Body Weight + Bar all three sets X 5
Bench Press - 100 X 5, 110 X 5, 120 X 5
Deadlift - 50 X 5
I do not have an olympic bar nor do I have a squat cage so I used the old arm bar that I have. It's also relatively my first time on squats or any big compound lift like that. So, I wanted to start slow to make sure I am getting the technique correct. I was also a little uncomfortable about loosing balance, etc with no squat cage there. I spent about 4 hours sitting at the comp just reading and watching videos on the squat and deadlift to ensure that I was doing it right. I do feel that my muscles did some work so all was not wasted on the 'puss' weight that I did, LOL. Bench was an old familiar friend but I wanted to start off slow on that one too to make sure I still had my form and technique correct. It was a little wobbly at first with the dumbbells but I got over it and by the last set they were coming out nice.
Food consumption was pretty dim except I did pretty good on water intake, 96 oz of water.
Breaky - 2Xfried eggs w/2Xcheese on homemade white bread. The usual barrage of cookie & pastry tasting that I have to do.
Lunch - nothin
Dinner - Soda, Nacho chips and that nasty nacho cheese you get from the movies, and a bag of popcorn. (went to movies)
I was horribly tired through most of my day and morning. A coffee picked me up a bit but still was worn out. I'm guessing it's a combination of not eating very well and my body adjusting to the lack of massive sugar/caffiene intake from the soda. Still getting headaches but they are fewer and less intense then when I initially stopped drinking soda.
I know, my eating habits are lacking in just about every area but I am more conscious of it now and anything is better than going to fast food 3 - 4 times a week. I am doing this by stages anyways... stop smoking - check - 3 months; severely limit soda - check - 2 weeks; start exercising - work in progress; start eating healthy - next on checklist.
I get a natural exercise tonight... bail hay X about 500 bails. Oh boy, it's gonna suck, lol. I guess it's great reinforcement for exercises as it has deadlifts, power cleans, bench press, and military press.
