Good luck on this. On the RM issue everyone is right in what they are saying of course but on a single factor the most important thing is not to reach your maxes too quickly so like 0311 said 4-6 weeks....so if you undershoot your maxes it won't matter very much especially since your "max" will be changing all the time anyway. So your in good shape.

BTW, your pant size, if you are a man, is your waist size. The part that hangs over your pants is your belly size. So use the lower number .

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Wednesday Sept 13

Squat 5*185, 5*205, 5*225, 5*225
Incline Press 5*145, 5*160,5*180, 5*200
Deadlift 5*220,5*245,5*265,5*300

I couldn't do my 3 sets of sit-ups today, because they are still sore from Monday.

Today I ate 3497 cals, all clean food.

I'm thinking I went a little heavy on my deadlifts, but since it was the first time doing them I won't change. Other than that, I'm liking this program so far.

Carry over that weight for next session. Always progress upward. Guarantee you next week it'll be easier.

Thanks,I was thinking about doing that. I did hit the weight with no problem, but like you said I want to always move up.

It's not so much my legs that give out, but I start to feel it in my knees. I think I'm going to have to start to wrap them in a few weeks? I know it's that that much weight right now, but I don't know how much I will be able to get past my 5RM if my knee's can't take it.

Sept 21 Thursday. I couldn't workout on Wednesday because work was to crazy. Also I didn't eat enough,aprox 2000cals. Did want to risk anything.

Squat 5@ 185,205,230,230
Incline Press 5@165,185,195,210
Deadlift 5@220,245,265,300.

3 sets of situps

Today was a good day in the gym, felt strong. Didn't use any straps for deadlifts. Forarms were sore the next day.

Started Animal Pak and Animal Stak 2 today. First time for Animal Stak2.

Friday Sept 22

Going to do 45mins of cardio today and maybe a little calf workout. I know that's not in the plane, but I feel like I should hit them.
