Starting Strength journal.
So I started this program again today. Tried it once but gave up on it because I gained alo of fat 'coz of my diet. Switched to a 4-day split for 3 months, didn't see any results. So I ended up reading alot about Starting Strength and figured where the problem lay. So I've decided to give this program a try again.

These lifts are lighter as I want to start light before I get used to it again since I took a month off aswell due to back pain. So I don't want to put so much pressure on it. Going particularly light on the deadlift.

My routine would be something like this:

Saturday - Cardio (40 minutes)
Sunday - Workout + Abs
Monday - Cardio (40 minutes)
Tuesday - Workout + Abs
Wednesday - Rest
Thursday - Workout + Biceps
Friday - Rest

Ab work: Crunch (4x15), Vertical Leg Raise (4x15), Ball Crunch(4x15), Side Crunch (4x15)
Biceps work: Barbell curl (3x12), Preacher Curl (3x12), Dumbell Curl (3x12)

My lifts as of today:
Workout A
3x5 Squat - 176 lbs
3x5 Bench Press - 99 lbs
1x5 Deadlift - 99 lbs

Supplements: ON 100% Whey Protein, Universal Real Gains & Creatine

My aim primarily is to get big and build strength on the way.

That's good. Way too much bicep work. Just do two or three sets of biceps and put in some chinups/pullups if you haven't already (not on same day).
