How light is that deadlift for you? It's really hard to say but it seems like a kind of heavy start judging by the squat weight. Obviously the squats are sets accross and the deadlift is a top set of 5 but it just looks a little heavy. Just wondering. You'll be better off if everything feels kinda light and easy at this point.

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

Oh, I see where you were saying you've never done A2G before. So that could point to a disparity.

Yeah, 225 deads is easy as pie for me. I won't get near my 5x5 PR for 3 or 4 weeks, let alone my one rep.

The squats.. I am teh lame.

Today's workout was fun, had a blast and felt fantastic!

8 Minutes on Bike to warmup.

Workout B
3x5 Squat - 90lbs
3x5 Standing military press - 80lbs
3x5 Pendlay Rows - 120lbs

I may be one lame A2G squatter, but I appear to be the only one in the gym

Stationary Bike - 8 minutes warmup of da legs.

Workout A -
squats - 3x5 - 100
benches - 3x5 - 120
deadlifts - 1x5 - 230

Note to self: Do more warm up sets for squats, last set was by far the best.

Pretty happy that by next week my squats will exceed my bench lol!

On the warmup you may be dong too little but in general think not necessarily about more but about better.

With the weight your squatting a WHOLE lot of sets and reps should not be necessary for warmup. At this stage I suppose warmup is more about injury prevention than anything else though since it's not like you're going to miss your target.

3x5 Squat - 110lbs
3x5 Standing military press - 85lbs
3x5 Pendlay Rows - 125lbs

Already noticing some changes below the belt... minor but calves and legs are definitly looking different after only a few work outs.

Looking forward to adding accessory work after next week.
