    Well,

    Its been a long time since I lifted, and I'm starting all over again.

    I'm doing a 2 day split, and when time allows it, 3 times a week, consisting on:

    Day 1
    3x5 Front squats (i seriously suck at back squating)
    3x5 Bench press
    3x5 Dips
    Pull ups

    Day 2
    3x5 Deadlift
    3x5 Pendley row
    3x5 OHP
    Pull ups

    I decided that I was going to start from the beginning, so empty oly bar (45lbs), using SS progressions, so 5lbs on each side (10lbs) for squat and deadlift, and 2.5lbs (5lbs) on each side, per day.

    Im very weak, and last time I tried lifting, I remember stalling quite early.

    Main objective is general strength and well being, I spend a shitload of time siting down, so I have to strengthen my back in order to reduce the chance of injury.

    Also, I want to reach, at least, 1 to 1 in squat and deadlift, and .75 to 1 in bench press. It isn't much, but its a SMART goal.

    So, in plain language:
    141 pounds on Squat and Deadlift
    105.8 on bench press

    I have a random objective, being capable of doing wide grip pull ups, so I hope that when i reach my goals, I will be capable of doing said exercise.

    Body stats:
    Height: 1.75m
    Weight: 64kg

    Let the log begin

    Squat: 45+50
    Bench: 45+25
    Dip: Using the dip machine, resistance used 10lbs
    Pull ups: tried to do a wide pull up, jumped, pulled, and kept the tension for 10 seconds, slowly descended.
    Note: Tried back squats again, everything felt nice, and tried the sets with back squats instead of front squats, the weight seemed less, could “easily” do the sets.

    As today (14-5-2014), numbers are:

    Squat: 95lbs
    Deadlift: 85lbs
    Bench: 70lbs
    Pendley: 65lbs
    OHP: 55lbslbs
    Dips: No idea
    Pull ups: No idea

    Cheers,

    Squat: 45+60
    Bench: 45+30
    Dip: Using the dip machine, resistance used: 15lbs
    Pull ups: tried to do a wide pull up, jumped, pulled, and kept the tension for 10 seconds, slowly descended.

    Note: Apparently i fucked up the resistance on the dip machine, I needed to use 10 or less, and took more... I guess I should write what i'm doing instead of just trying to remember the numbers.

    Squat: 45+90
    Bench: 45+45
    Dip: did not tried them
    Pull ups: tried to do a wide pull up, jumped, pulled, and kept the tension for 10 seconds, slowly descended.

    Note: As anticipated, squats need longer rest times, and its eating away the dip schedule.

    This is the first time I squat 135lbs

    Squat: 45+100 (3x3)
    Bench: 45+50
    Dip: was not capable of doing them
    Pull ups: tried to do a wide pull up, jumped, pulled, and kept the tension for 10 seconds, slowly descended.

    Note: I also suck at bench pressing, 95lbs feels quite heavy.

    Legs started cramp while doing squats, left it at 3x3

    Deadlift: 45+100
    Pendley row: 45+50
    OHP: 45+20
    Pull ups: Did 2 on the straight bar, will try next time on the one that has an angle on it.

    Note: As today, I achieved 3 of the 4 objectives planned:

    at least: 141 pounds on Squat and Deadlift
    do at least one wide pull up

    numbers as today 25-6-2014:

    Squat: 145lbs
    Deadlift: 145lbs
    Bench: 95lbs
    Pendley: 95lbs
    OHP: 70lbs
    Dips: No idea
    Wide Pull ups: 2

    I think ill dial down the intensity to avoid injury, im totally afraid of developing an hernia or something equally horrifying, Ill probably stay at the range of 115-135 for reps for squats and deadlifts
