Smile Nilbert Rafer's Training Log Updates

A bit of history: (at 5'5", 140 pounds, 49 years old)
(1) I did High-Volume Training, 3 times a week, on-and-off since 1982.
(2) This June '07, for reasons I already posted in this forum, I shifted to the Mike Mentzer's Ideal Routine, but found it still as overtraining.
(3) In July, I shifted to the Consolidated Routine, as suggested by MM, for those who find the Ideal Routine still taxing on their recovery ability.

=========================================
July 14: Workout 1, (1st cycle)
Deadlifts - 220 pounds, 2 reps; 230, 4 reps; 240, 1 rep
