Default Rippetoe Journal

I thought I'd try out the Rippetoe routine and see what kind of gains I could get. I started lifting again and have been consistent for the last 6 months. I took a two week break and I just started again. Goals are to gain some strength while keeping my weight the same. Last time with creatine mono I gained a lot of weight. I went from 155 pds. to 175 pds. I'm gonna try a CEE and do light cardio twice a week.

Stats:
5'11"
165 pds.

Supplements:
Whey protein
CEE
Multi-Vitamin

So far so good. I just recieved my CEE in the mail so hopefully I'll make some bigger gains in the near future. I thought I'd start light until I start the creatine again. Plus, my legs were really sore last week. They feel normal again this week; sore but not painfully so. I think I started too light on some exercises and too heavy on others.

I tweaked my lower back a little on Friday re-racking after the squats, but it feels better now. I'll see how I feel tomorrow. The BulkNutrition CEE tastes horrible, like ground up aspirin, but I'm getting used to it. I need to keep up on this journal because I'm already getting confused on what weights to use for what.

You need to have a workout log at all times independant of any online journal.

I can second that! I have found that if you put the powder on an index card and slide it to the back of your throat and just take a gulp of water with it, it is much more tolerable. After a while the taste wont bother you that much. I usually just take it out on the weights anyways!

I just throw it in with a little bit of water, just enough to dissolve it, then shoot it. A quick shudder and it's all over. Luckily the taste doesn't linger in your mouth.

Have you taken a look at my journal? My numbers are all over the freaken place! I am doing 240 on bench and 150 on deads!

I wish I would have started this routine when I was first begining so I wouldnt be so unbalanced....

I wish I could come close to benching that much.

5-25-07

Workout A

Squats: 175
Bench: 165
Dead: 215
Chin-up: 2x10

I think I'm going to reset on the bench. I really struggled and the spotter got a good workout too. I think I'm coming close to reseting on all the lifts.

I'm going to reset on the squats. I'm not getting as low as I should anymore. I'm going on vacation next week so I'll miss two workout days. Should I wait to reset till after next week or what? Next week will throw off my routine.
