    Did my last workout of my first week of Starting Strength. I went into the workout hungry - I now realise that a strawberry and banana smoothie is not sufficient pre workout nutrition :redface:

    Squat - Successful 40kg 3*5
    Overhead Press - Successful 22.5kg 3*5 (had to work for it)
    Power Clean - Successful 32.5g 3*5

    I think the reason that I struggled with the Overhead Press was because of my hunger. So, yeah, I hit all of my lifts today and I've got Couch to 5k this weekend, so I'll let you know how I get on with my next SS workout on Monday.

    Monday 2nd June

    Squats - Successful 42.5kg 3*5
    Bench Press - Successful 30kg 3*5
    Deadlift - Successful 55kg 1*5

    Starting to focus on adding mass as of today. I hope this will help me get through my workouts better as I am no longer in a calorie deficit.

    Welcome to the logs! Wish I'd been smart enough to lift at 15.

    The overhead press is a finicky lift for lots of people, it's the first one down the toilet for me if I feel like crap.

    I've started eating at a surplus, so I tried to go up (in Squats) by a 5kg increment

    Squats - Successful 47.5kg 3*5:icon_chee
    OHP - Failed 25kg - 5/5/2:mad:
    Power Clean - gym owner told me to work on my technique, so I dropped the weight. Successful 30kg 5*3

    My form was s***ty up until now on the PC, so I think the drop was necessary. Bit disappointed about the OHP, but I was pleasantly surprised that I could increase my Squat by 5kg!

    Should I be eating more since I failed a lift?

    Not necessarily. I'd probably try 25kg again next time you OHP. If you fail it twice more, deload it 2-3 weeks and hopefully you break through it this time. I think that's what Rip says anyway.

    If you want to increase calories, though, go ahead.

    OK.... here's one that belongs in the gym idiots thread.....

    On my 4th rep of 65kg squats, i fell forward :redface:(thank God I was in a power rack). The gym owner made me leave the weights for that day.

    -----------------

    Tuesday 17th June 2014

    My dad had to convince the gym owner not to ban me from free weights and make me do machines (f**k that s**t). In fact, now my dad has to supervise me.

    It happened again on rep 5..... only this time, I dropped the weights off the bar. I think I have a problem with my balance and I have decided to drop back down to 60kg/62.5kg for the next workout till I fix it. I did one set of 60kg to keep me going.

    Squats - See above
    Bench Press - Failed 37.5kg 2/3/2 Most I've benched in my life - when I did SS before the most I reached was 35kg :)
    Deadlift - Failed 80kg (1 rep) - switching to 5kg jumps.
