gains in squats are coming more slowly now...my plan is to add some more caloires to my day and try to get myself to grow a little more to get stronger or to give me addedd energy for the heavy sets..either way, made progress today...all lifts are coming along very nicely at this time...unsure how long it will be until i blast DC...2 more weeks of starting strenght? as long as im progressing...BRING IT ON!

Maybe so, but man it doesn't seem like it to me. At the beginning of your journal you squatted 205 for 3X5 and now 335 for the same reps. That's just awesome dude. Can't wait to see you get even stronger. Monster increases, tremendous work.

thanks man!..in the begining, it was muscle memory, I am above where I was as of now, (with the exception of deads, i continue taking them slow, im almost caught up).while yes I am still progressing, i guess it does not seem as "quality" to me because each set is very taxing both physically and mentally...i do them all w/ good form, but the last couple reps are slow coming up..thanks for the post, It is definately motivating...cant wait till tomorrow to go shatter some more numbers!

-Hit a sticking point on squats...could not progress w/3x5

Ladies and gents, today I decided (while in the gym) that I am stuck on squats, and all of my other lifts will be hitting a wall very soon, I can feel it...I am DONE w/ Starting Strenght. My second run thru lasted 5 weeks, just about as long as I think I could go and progress each workout...I contemplated resting and running again, but then I thought back to why I did this program...as a REHAB...well...job done, and a great one at that...I have passed my numbers from before my surgery...it is now time to rest until Sunday(will do a couple cardio days), then I officially start my DC Blast...all workouts are not officially locked in yet, I am still drawing up what exactly I want to do...the outline will be here before Sunday, and ill continue to keep the journal...it motivates me, and I love getting feedback from the ABC members...Starting Strenght was my preseason...ITS GAME TIME!!!

(special shout outs to commander, workoutmachine, and ordo ab for the insights and tips thruout!)

**looked at my previous logs...my deadlift is still not caught up...i pulled 450x6 before surgery...was taking SS light to keep progressing..time to up the ante!

I'm looking foward to watching your DC blast.

And 450x6, that's an impressive deadlift, hope to see you work back up to that!
