Right OK. Not done this public log thing up to now but I figured it's a new year and everything so why not give it a go.
I was also looking for a change to my routine and given all the talk here of the Stronglifts program I though I'd give that a go too. It sounds similar in some ways to what I was already doing (3 days a week, sessions between 1 hr and 1:15, emphasise full body rather than splits as such) but I think the focus on full-body exercises like squats and increasing weights quickly could be good.
Bit of background - I've been working out regularly since December 2010. I'm 193 cm tall (6'4"). When I started then I was 76 kg (168lb) and skinny. I'm now 87 kg (192lb) I'm not sure of body fat exactly - the accumeasure caliper says something like 8%, though I'm not sure if I believe it, but I don't think it's changed much over the past year. I'll post some progress pictures soon.
I like to eat a healthy varied diet - mostly home-prepared/home-cooked food - though I've not been very strict at tracking calories etc. I'm trying to avoid supplements etc and so far haven't taken any (apart from vitamin D) - not even protein shakes/whey. To me doing without them is part of the challenge!
Anyway, that's enough background. On to the workout log...
I used the spreadsheet to get my starting weights, and I may have rounded up a little.
Week 1 Monday - workout A
All weights are in kg
Barbell Squat -
Barbell Bench Press
Barbell Bent Over Row
I decided to follow the program and start light, and I really paid attention to form (following the guides on stronglifts.com which are different in places to the Jefit database but seem to make sense) today. I didn't do a warmup for the row because without weights the bar is not held off the floor.
Everything seemed very easy - I was done in less than 40 minutes and didn't really feel like I'd done much - but I guess the weights will start to increase quite quickly so I'll try and stick to the program for now...
