overhead presses don't progress as fast as other stuff tell her to keep her head up

Its true. Usually though the overall % of growth is the same it just seems slow because its a smaller relative number.

Here is an idea for you guys. Get Power to the People, read that. Then look at Starting Strength and this stronglifts....and split the difference .

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

P2TP looks like an interesting book. Anything with reviews that mixed has to at least be entertaining!

I think we'll stick with Rippetoe SS for now. My knees seem to be holding up - actually feeling better, now my ass and legs just hurt!

Yeah. We switched today to a 2.5lb increment with fractional plates. We can add as little as 0.5lbs a workout with those to keep the linear progress.

Alrighty then... update

Last two workouts...

Wife:

Squat Wed: 3x5 @ 130lbs, she felt weak. Decided to deload and work on form (knees wanting to come together - we can fix this)
Squat Fri: 3x5 @ 115lbs, good.
Bench: 3x5@95lbs
Press: 3x5@67.5lbs - we are using our fractional plates on this lift and going up 2.5lbs for her
Dead: 1x5@150lb - looked great!
Clean: 3x5 @70lbs

Me:

Squat wed: 3x5 @115lbs
Squat fri: 3x5@125lbs - did a few good mornings at the top. need to fix monday.
Bench: 3x5@150lbs - still very easy
Press: 3x5@100lbs. I soooooooooooo want 135!
Dead: 1x5@245lbs. This was a bit harder than I expected. But I'll get my 300 soon enough
Clean: 3x5@90lbs. I actually hit myself in the nose with the bar :/ on the first rep of set 1. No real damage!

I thought you were doing the "stronglifts". So your doing the actual SS?

i bet that hit in the nose hurt. are you dropping into a squat when you do the cleans? i dont see how it can hit your nose unless you have crazy long arms lol

Yes, I whined and cajoled until I got my way. She became more open to my arguments once her squats started getting heavy (and she had read SS afew times through)

Power cleans, so no full oly clean w/ squat. I was just being my usual uncoordinated self.
