    Alex said it. Focus on the program and just keep an eye on what you eat. You won't cut & bulk at the same time. Doesn't work like that unfortunately.

    Thanks Alex and Justin!

    I'll keep your advice in mind as I proceed. I am planning on upping the calories soon, and realize it's very hard, if not impossible, to cut BF and add muscle mass at same time. I would like to try to maintain weight for a while, but we'll see how it goes and, if I'm tiring out or not making progress on the lifts, I'll definitely keep upping the calories.

    I'm off to the gym soon for my second workout of the program! Will post an update later.

    Cheers,
    Jerome

    Workout Day #2 of the Starting Strength Program:

    I left the ego behind, as many suggested, and concentrated on form with good results. My form on the full squats was much better- I used only the bar for the warm ups, then added only 5 lb weights on each side for the working sets (instead of 10 lb ea last time), which was hard but a much better weight.

    First time doing the military press, but form was not too much of a problem. Also first time doing Pendlay Rows- form was more difficult with these, mostly because my legs were sore and tired and bending down for the rows was hard.

    SQUATS
    Warm up: 45 lbs x 5 reps, 45 x 5, 45 x 5, 45 x 3
    Working Sets: 55 lbs x 5 reps x 3 sets

    MILITARY PRESS
    Warm up: 45 lbs x 5 reps, 45 x 5, 45 x 5
    Working Sets: 55 lbs x 5 reps x 3 sets

    PENDLAY ROWS
    Warm up: 55 lbs x 5 reps, 55 x 5, 60 x 5
    Working Sets--65 lbs x 5 reps x 3 sets

    I felt pretty good after the workout and I'm really looking forward to the next workout!

    I didn't know there was an ebook. I was going to order the book on Amazon. I've mostly been using the Starting Strength Wiki online.

    Week 2 of Starting Strength.

    Full Barbell Squats:
    Warm up: 45 lbs x 5 reps, 45 x 5, 45 x 5, 50 x 3, 55 x 2
    Work sets: 60 lbs x 5 reps x 3 set

    Barbell Bench Press:
    Warm up: 45 x 5, 55 x 5, 65 x 5, 70 x 3, 75 x 5
    Work sets: 100 x 5 x 3

    Barbell Deadlifts: x 1
    Warm up: 65 x 5, 65 x 5, 85 x 3, 85 x 2
    Work set: 95 x 5 x 1

    Didn't sleep well last night, and was really tired today but forced myself to go to the gym. Still, I made nice progress in weight from last week while keeping pretty good form. Form in squats and bench press was good, but still need a bit of practice with the deadlift form. Did 10 minutes of moderate cardio before and after the lifting. Upping calorie intake from 1700 to 1900 cal/day (40P/30C/30F) now that I'm into the program.

    Making progress. Deadlifts are one you really need to watch form on. But they aren't that hard to master.


    There's a bunch of videos on Youtube on deadlift form. Do a search for "rippetoe deadlift".
