Default Ryan Mac's SS mass gain log

Sadly I've been at this strength and conditioning thing for far too long. Ultimately I had not reached the levels to which I aspired. Jan 1, 2008 I did my first ever CF workout. Over the following 7 months I improved in strength, lean muscle, flexibility, durability, mental fortitude and determination. I learned a great deal more information during that 7 month period in large part to CF principles, but I also picked up Starting Strength very early on. I had seen SS utilized by many to achieve new levels of strength. I felt like it was an intelligent move so that I could develop my technique in the important lifts. I believe I have enough knowledge at this point to do a true strength/mass building phase.

Please, if you have any suggestions or recommendations feel free to point them out at any time.

I will first start by putting in logs from the beginning of my program which started on August 4th, 2008.
