thanks ordo...hope this 3x5 cycle does you good so your stronger for the next blast!!! It will be about 3-4 more weeks until I will feel comfortable enough to start a blast..at the rate I am going, I should have enough strenght in 3 weeks, then take a week off before the blast..No change in my form at all, as a matter of fact, I am using this rebuilding time to be a stickler on my form. I blame big jumps in weight at this time on the fact that each day I get a little more comfortable with what I can do in the gym.

-1st workout of my second week!!! Up 4 lbs since the start!
weight:192

Squats:
135x4,4
185x3
215x5,5,5
BB Sh. Press:
Barx8
95x4
110x5,5,5
BB Row:
125X5
135X5,5,5

SUPERSET
Pullups:BWx4
Chins:BWx5,2
Rack Chins:7
Very weak numbers, Ill get there!

Thought it was time to incorporate some BW movements, my next workout I will throw in some pushups (and maybe) dips

I wouldn't say that bench is your weak point as your almost benching as much as your squatting.

But keep it up man, the 3x5 program works wonders. You should try pyramid down in weight while increasing reps, I know you kinda just started but I will vouch for this style as I have increased in strength like no tomorrow with it.
