Looks like you're closing in on your maxes right on schedule. Good work.

Once you get past the maxes if you find you're having trouble with loading at that part you could consider widening the increments on the ramp up. Say since you're using 10% rounded down you could bump it up to maybe 12% to help manage fatigue. I've found that the longer you can stay on and load the bar the better...period. Even if this means modulating the volume somewhat as you go along.

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

WEEK 4 -OCT 2/06

Squat 5@205,225,250,275,305
Bench 5@160,175,195,215,245
Row's 5@130,145,160,175,195

Weighted hypers 12@25,25
Weighted Situps 15,12,10,8 @ 25lbs
I also did 1 set of 5 @ 135lbs barbell curls. I figured I would try it since I was doing rows and the bar was set up and I was feeling strong.

So for the start of week 4, I am only 2.5% away from my 5RM. I can tell that I am stronger, in all. But Week 5 and above I will have to start to take a longer break in between sets. Right now I don't have a watch so I will get one. But I figure I am only resting about 2 mins between. I will increase this to 4-5mins, so I will be in the gym longer but I will be able to increase easier.

Meal 1 - 6:30am
2 pak yogurt
1 cup cereal
1 scoop protein powder
1/4 cup milk total cals 500

Meal 2: 10:00am
5 oz chicken
3/4 rice
1/4 XL hamburger cals:535

Meal 3 (1:30pm)and #4(4:00pm) are the same as #2 cals 1070


Meal 5: (7:45pm)
Fish (sole and shrimp)
3/4cup rice
Veg
1 piece garlic bread w/cheese
Diet Dr.Pepper cals: ?

I should have have another meal before bed, but I didn't
