Woo yeah! Finally got my squat rack back, the return to lifting properly can resume!
So straight back into it, I'm going to start with a stronglifts 5x5 type programme. With deference to the programmes' insistence on progressive increases, I'm starting at about 50% of my 1rm, in deference to the fact that I'm an impatient bugger, I'm increasing the weight by 2.5kg per set rather than per workout, starting the next workout 2.5kgs lighter than the last set of the workout before.
Goals in the long term are 120kg squat, 120kg bench and 160kg dead. In the short term 5x5 squat at 100kg, 5x5 floor press at 95kg and 5x5 dead at 120-130kg
should be do-able,
So here goes.
all nice and civilized, easy going so far...
(no bench yet)
underhand grip bent over row
no problems so far...
recommendation is to failure, I stopped a little short to save myself for the floor press.
