TGM's workout log

OK, this is a continuation of a log from another forum.

Original thread here: http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... ce2bb04842

Basically I'm doing Starting Strength, I want to take advantage of my ability to put on a fair bit of muscle as a novice right now. I'll do the program till it stops working for me, after which I'll probably focus on cardio (HIIT) with a bit of strength training to lose some fat. For now though, it's just SS. Am currently doing the SS program, when I learn to power clean I'll switch to the proper SS program.

Gender: Male
Height: 176cm
Age: 20
Weight: 89 or so kg
%BF: 27.5 (according to my scales, dunno how accurate they are.)

7/12/2009

Weight: forgot today, last time I measured it was 89kg at 27%BF

Squat: 67.5kg
Bench Press: 62.5kg
Chin Ups: 5/2/2

Switched to the practical programming program today, mostly because I can't power clean without destroying my floor. Chin ups are way harder than I remember them being, all sets to failure and didn't count incomplete reps. Squat and Bench were good, will progress as normal.

Haven't been able to update so I'll do it all in one post.

Squat: 70
Press: 32.5
Deadlift: 95

Squat: 72.5
Bench Press: 65
Pull ups: 4,2,2

I've been practising the power clean, I think next workout I'll switch to the original SS program if I'm confident with my technique.
