Even though you're just starting out, you should split up your training somehow. You should also be going for more than 1-3 reps per set...
edited mate i had the sets and reps wrong way round, i didnt realize it was alot, maybe because i bought in bulk, like 5kg whey, 5kg malto, 5kg dex, then the other packets are stuff a friend of mine gave me to try like the unflavoured whey protein isolate, some milk protein isolate and some finely ground oats.

There isn't a right and wrong for sets/reps, I was just trying to let rootbeer know what you did.

Not really happy with todays workout as I was abit naive and underestimated the overhead press and i just couldn't get the last rep in the last set up there so it kinda pissed me off. I also feel that my squat form is horrible but i'm not expreience enough to judge so i might record it on monday and upload it so you guys can critique.

Squat
49.5x2x5
60.5x1x5
77x1x3
88x1x2
99x3x5

Overhead press

44x2x5
55x1x5
66x1x3
77x1x2
77x3x5 *missed last rep of set 3

Pendlay rows
44x2x5
66x1x5
77x1x3
82.5x1x2
88x3x5

also, 5 dips, 10 hanging leg raises and 12 decline crunches

It should go across your traps...



P.S. you should throw a few pics on here for comparison purposes. I like to go back in my journal and look at my old pics and my old diet/workouts. It's good learning/comparison.

squeeze your shoulder blades together and push your chest out, ive found having my hands a close in as possible also helps tighten your back musclature. once your back develops it wont hurt as much as the muscle will act almost like padding.
Im going to be uploading a few vids of mine soon just to check form etc. It's worth doing so you can correct any bad habits now rather than months down the line.
