Been lurking for a while and decided to start writing things down instead of keeping them in my head. Stats: 5'5" ~165 lbs been training seriously for 8 or 9 months Diet is clean. Supplementing with WPI, Xtend, and Creatine Mono as of today (9/5/06) Goal: Looking to shed a few pounds in september and then slowly bulk through the winter months. This is into my second week of bill starr's 5x5. This is my second time running the progression and I might've started the weights too high. Last week's squat was 225 5x5, bench was all over the place, and same goes for rows. Hopefully I will be a little more strict now that things are written down.
