WU: Some stretching focusing on muscles used for the squat and deadlift.
3x10 pullups, 3 x 15 pushups

I was going to do 6 x 30s rounds of weighted jumprope at a fast pace but opted against it for now.

Squat: 115 x 5
125 x 4
135 x 3
140 x 2
145 x 1

155 x 4 x 5

Military Press: 65 x 5
70 x 4
75 x 3
85 x 2
95 x 1

95 x 2 x 5
85 x 2 x 5

I was not sure where my 1rm was on the mil. press so there was no way I could be certain where to find it in a 5x5 set so when I tried 95 it was to heavy and had to scale back to 85 which still felt like a lot but was easier to handle.

Deadlift: 135 x 5
155 x 4
165 x 3
175 x 2

185 x 4 x 5

Situps: 3 x 10 (35lbs)

Total time: 1 hour

I spent a little longer than I wanted to but Im working on form and finding the 1rm for the lifts. Overall I can really start to feel the burn on these exercises. Im confident my squat form is getting much better and I am working on the form for the deadlift. Still waiting for SS and PP to come into the mail and I've been searching around for a strength coach out here but they are difficult to find. Im also trying to put together a better warmup for the workout but I think once I read SS it should all come together.

Had 2 scoops of whey with 10 ounces of milk pre-WO and had 4 scoops of whey and coconut milk post-WO. It's getting a little hard to scarf down the calories, I've pretty much said to hell with 500 over im opting for about 3500 - 4000 per day. Since starting eating last saturday and training on tuesday i've already put on 3 pounds: 128 from 125 and not much change in body composition so fat gain has been low although I have increased my fat intake form various sources both clean and unclean.
