    My philosophy is to always move forward; starting light is not moving forward to me. I understand that the goal is down the road to lift more but I guess it is more ego. Why did I start so light; that is what the program requires. It says take your best lift for 1RM, 3RM or 5RM and than enter it into the spreadsheet. It is also suggested to use 10% less than that that as you may peak before the end of the routine. Easy Peasy; not sure you are saying that with humor or mean that?

    No I meant the question about starting light. I've not looked at SL Advanced. It seemed really light compared to what you were doing. The press comment was a joke...though I am a bit jealous. I'm lucky to get 130 once.

    It seems all of the StrongLift routines have you start light. As this is only 9 weeks I'm willing to give it a try however like I said it is probably more ego than anything else to have me start so light.

    I get it now. The press is actually a bench "press"; I have now editted the information as now I know why you said that; my apology. I only wish I could should press 170 Lbs easy peasy.

    - run
    - wasn't feeling it this time though I was feeling the back ache and then closer to the end the tightness of calves
    - didn't run as far which sucks but didn't stop neither; pushed till the end
    - next time do much better

    - Squats; a light day
    - Press; pretty easy and actually felt even easier by the 5th one
    - Up Rows; upped the weight and reps
    - Deadlifts; found this very heavy and it is not near what I was lifting. Also my back did not like it. Form was good but suspect like previous back problems, I may have to eliminate till better.
    - Tricep Press; upped weight and reps
    - Dips; upped weight
    - CC Curls; upped weight
    - EZ Curls; upped weight and reps

    Should note that after the Tricep Press without a break I do the Dips. After the One-Arm Concentrated Curls without a break I do the EZ Curls. I am pushing to drain the muscles.
