Trying to do some pulls off the floor and it was pretty awkward. I was trying to do the first pull slowly and pause as I get into position for a low hang clean. Some attempts were successful. Some were not so much. When it went right it felt great.

Back up a bit in weight. Not sure what's causing the huge fluctuations.

Front squats continue to feel more natural. I repped out on the last set and I could have gone for more but the knurling on the bar was really starting to rip into my shoulders.

Leg raises are waaayyy harder after front squats. Front squats are apparently a great core workout.

Decided to deload the volume a bit today... although I went pretty hard on dips still. Possibly a mistake.

Was trying full pulls off the floor today. It went alright although I'm not convinced I'm any better than I am with just hang cleans. ha

Weight has been plummeting lately ... diet has been a bit shaky. I will have to try and bring the cals back ups to normal.

Class started this week so its time to start up the starting strength program. I need to bring up my strength numbers and would like to add some bulk too. I'll be doing this program till probably xmas for sure.

Here is what we did today and remember I started fairly light so I'd have room to improve and so I could nail the form.

My current weight is 170lbs and I'm right at 6' tall. So I'm pretty lanky and I'd like to fill out some before spring break trip! I'd tell you my bf% but my little hand held thing is busted soooo too bad ha.


Workout A

bench - bar x a few? (warmup/stretch)
- 115 x 8 (warmup)
- 135lbs 3x5 (working sets)

squats - bar x 10 ish (warmup/stretch)
- 115 x 7 (warmup)
- 135lbs 3x5 (working sets)

standing rows
- bar x a few? (warmup/stretch)
- 95lbs x 10 (warmup)
- 115lbs 3x5 (working sets)

Accessory Lifts

Dips
- bodyweight 3x10 (I figured my tris were already warm from bench)

Sitting Skull Crushers (with dumbell)

- 40lbs x10 (too light)
- 45lbs 3x10 (felt pretty good so I'll work from there)

Leg Raises (one in the middle and one off to each side)
- completed 5 cycles middle left right for 3 sets

Cable Ab pull down

- 70lbs x 10 (too light)
- 90lbs x 10 (too light)
- 120lbs 3x10 (much better)

Felt really good to get back to the gym. Hope someone will check this out and comment on it if necessary.

I was gonna ask about how wide should I grip on rows? I was just doing the same grip as bunch since its the opposing exersize.
Also, should accessory be 3x10 or more 3x5 stuff?
One more question, when working abs is it good to have high reps or low reps?
Thanks for any help you can give.

do you recommend any cardio with this workout?
