Starting Strength Day 6, 10-13-08

Squat 3 x 5 - 165lbs
Press 2 x 5 - 70lbs
Power Cleans - 105lbs

Today marks the end of the second week of SS.  I have gained 6 pounds.  That is weighing myself when I'm at my lightest, after waking up.  So far, not too much of a gut, but I'm still thinking its mostly fat.  Its been tough to continue to eat 5-7,000 calories a day.  It definitely takes a bunch of discipline.  I've got to keep working hard at it.

As I was squatting today I had the thought that it felt like a warmup.  I charged right through them.  I'm thinking I should start getting more aggressive with squat therapy which I learned about at the Level 1 Cert.  It would be cool if I could get rid of my 'butt wink' and end up with a more upright, superior squat at the end of this SS cycle.

I told Phil you were doing SS and he gawked at me and stammered, "Wha-whaa-what? Why would he go and do that?"

I just thought I would share his shock and awe. I want to get some of those red and yellow circular crash dummy stickers to put on you.

And enjoy your gomad today, I'm going to enjoy my .25gomad with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. And I'm wholly aware that it's 9:40am.

Lauren made me get up at 6:30am (after going to bed at 4am) to get the marriage license.
