Nathan's 2011 Training Log
I'm starting a new training log for my non-CF workouts. I am going to start cleaning things up in ernest on Monday, January 10. I'll record my weight, some measurements, etc.

I'm going to start lifting again using Pavel T's simple 5x5 lifting workout. Here's the basic schedule:
Monday-Heavy Squat
Tuesday-Heavy Bench
Wednesday-Heavy Deads

Today's workout:
5x5x225 Squat

Weigh-in today for our work contest: 255! That is by far the heaviest I've ever been. I have been purposefully sandbagging the past month to try and pad my first weigh-in.

I'm going to be following Tim Ferriss' diet guidelines and Pavel's 5x5 one lift a day program for the foreseeable future.

Today's workout:
Squats--5x5 x 235lbs

FYI, I'm starting light to be able to work into things easily. I really should have about 50lbs more on the bar. I might choose to make larger jumps in the next few weeks.

Bench 5x5x195

No struggle other than to wait five minutes between sets. I was at 4 minutes when I started most.

Day Three of the 100 Day Challenge. Feel good, except I forgot to eat breakfast until mid-AM. I couldn't figure out why I felt hungry.

Workout: Deads 5x5x275lbs--easy. The hardest part is waiting a sufficient period of time to lift again. Of course, things will get tougher as the weight gets closer to what I'm capable of lifting.
