What do you mean by "reset a little bit" ?

Eric: Will do with the pullups / chinnies man, starting tues (next workout)

5-31-08 [A]

Squat - 205 yikes these are getting HEAVY and TOUGH.. like, I don't know if my form is starting to take a hit but I'm getting some serious forward lean 'push forward and then up' on the last set... keep progressing? I will.

Bench - 120 oh my gosh, I drive up with my feet now so my butt and hips are off the bench and my shoulder blades tucked IN and DOWN and I didn't feel the weird shoulder soreness, it also felt a tad lighter! progress here seems good =]

Deadlift - 285 ok this went good, but, I can't pull it all the way up. meaning, I can't round out my shoulders all the way. I go like 3/4 of the way up and then drop it for 5 reps. should I keep adding weight or what?

if you can't do things without proper form. don't add weight.

ok. so do I just keep deadlifting the same weight each workout until the form is PERFECT, then progress?

I'm not sure how to progress when I get stuck. correct me if I'm wrong but all I remember Mark's book saying is "eventually the novice wont be able to add more weight to the bar, at this point more advanced programming is necessary."

so I don't know what to do. I'm afraid my squat is about to hit that same point too ack lol

Yes.

When you get stuck, you can reset, change frequency, take a break, change reps, etc.

it seems like you can't even deadlift with correct form at the weight you are using....????

if so...drop down to a weight you can use proper form.

There's no way you should be having any difficulty at this point. You're only maybe 2 weeks in if my math is correct.

I've been reading this thread and it's already been said to death. Don't use heavy weights right now! There shouldnt be any comments about not being able to get a full lock out, or these are getting heavy and tough. Bump it down to a lower weight. You shouldn't be saying it's heavy or tough for a few weeks.

If you can't get full lockout with deads, then it's too much weight. I would drop that weight and work on form with a weight you can at least handle relatively easily.

This program is the tortoise and the hare. Slow and pace will win the race, but right now you're trying to speed along like the f'in rabbit. The tortoise won remember

Ok, so I'm going too fast?

5 pounds every workout is too much then?

After that whole year and a half on rippetoe's I left off at low numbers like 170 squat, 100 bench.. that's where I picked up when I restarted this new one. I was progressing really good with deadlifts and then all of a sudden I couldn't lift it fully anymore, so I guess I'll drop it by 20 pounds and go from there?

I know I'm jumping in the middle here, but 5lbs a week isnt too much, your starting point was off.
