Default Another SS Journal

Here we go…After reading Starting Strength and Practical Programming, as well as reading and listening to a number of Coach Rippetoe’s interviews, I am fully aware that to perform well at xfit you need a solid foundation of strength. So after recovering from a significant back injury, I decided to give a dedicated strength program a try for the first time in my life. I have done xfit for a little over a year with ‘Ok’ success (21 rds of Cindy, 10 min Helen, 4:15 Fran, +45lb Muscle-up). However, very poor times on Diane and Linda, as well as loss of MM, have led me to take up the SS program.

Height: 6’2
Wt: 186
BF:10%

Goals: To hit advanced strength levels as out lined in PP in 9-12 months at a BW of 198lbs (387lb BS, 457lb Dead, 173lb Press, 289lb Bench) As of December my xfit total was 265 squat, 360 dead, 140 press. I have been on the PP routine for about 4 weeks with good results. However, much more food and heavy ab work will be needed for if I am to come close to my goals. Here is last week:
