  1. Starting over with SL5x5


    It's been awhile since I've posted here. I have an old log here somewhere.
    My goal is to drop some fat and be leaner. I'm 6' and 184lbs. The lowest I was lately was 170, ~2 years ago. Last december I had a bad month and gained 10lbs. I've been stuck in the low to mid 180's since. My usual routine was:
    mon - chest/tri
    weds - back/bi
    fri - legs/shoulders
    cardio whenever I couild squeeze it in.

    I started SL5x5 last week and added 15mins of cardio after each workout.

    10/20/10
    squats 45 x 5 x 5
    deadlife 95 x 5
    overhead press 45 x 5 x 5
    inverted rows 3 x 5
    30 mins cardio (elip)

    I couldn't remember the right exercises for B group and did inverted rows by accident

    10/22
    squats 50 x 5 x 5
    bench 45 x 5 x 5
    inverted rows 12 x 1, 8 x 1, 5 x 1
    push-ups 3 x 10
    leg raises 3 x 10
    15mins cardio

    squats 55 x 5 x 5
    overhead press 50 x 5 x 5
    deadlift 100 x 5
    chin-ups 3, 2, 2
    prone bridges 3 x 30s
    15mins cardio

    10/26
    30mins cardio (elip)

    10/27
    bench 55 x 5 x 5
    squats 55 x5 x 5 (yup forgot to increase by 5lbs, trying to keep count etc made me forget)
    inverted rows 10, 5, 5
    push-ups 10 x 3
