    AlphaSaiyan's journey to strength

    Sup everyone, I'm a 15 year old guy living in the United States and a long time lurker. I educated myself first and decided to make an account, and I'm ready to start training. I'll be bulking up on the Starting Strength program. Besides lifting I'll be doing parkour and martial arts, my two favorite things to do. My first lifting day's tommorow, wish me luck.

    Thanks for the comments everyone, and kinda ironic my journals rated 5 stars and this is the first entry.

    Squat 185 3x5
    Bench press 115 3x5
    Deadlift 215 x5
    Pull up 3x5

    Not too bad considering the last time I stepped inside a weight room was middle school when the bar was a challenge. While the weight wasn't bad, I need to focus on going deeper on squats.

    Squat 185 3x5
    Military press 90 3x5
    Power clean 135 5x3
    Dip 3x5

    I noticed a few things. One, two days wasn't enough recovery time and I was sore coming into it. Two, I need to squat deeper. Hopefully after Friday I'll stop getting sore and I'll be below parralell.

    What really made me realize what my problem was with squatting, was that I felt that I was reaching parallel when I really wasn't. It wasn't until one day where I decided to video my max that I realized I was way off.
    I used to have flexibility issues on squats, where I couldn't go to parallel or else I would feel really uncomfortable.
    But what changed it all was a little stretching here and there on off days, and doing body weight squats below parallel when legs aren't sore, or maybe as a warm up.
    Hope I helped.

    Squat 185 3x5
    Bench press 115 3x5
    Deadlift 215 x5

    Pretty sore coming into this workout, hopefully with this 3 day break I'll have enough recovery time. I did break parallel on squats however. Technique is good enough that I'll be able to move the weight up next time, also up to 175 pounds.

    I'm thinking I should lower the weight alot and focus on technique so I don't stall early.

    Squat 165 3x5
    Bench press 115 3x5
    Deadlift 205 x5
    Pull ups 3x5

    My football coach died on monday morning, which is why I didn't update my log then. I had no motivation to lift even today and couldn't bring myself to try hard. It's been really depressing.

    Squat 170 3x5
    Military press 90 3x5
    Power clean 135 5x3
    Dip 3x5

    Pretty out of it right now, I felt like I was dissconnected to my body. I should be able to do more weight anyways I guess.

    Military press 95 3x5
    Power clean 135 5x3
    Dips 3x5

    Finally got the power clean technique down, so I'll add 5 pounds next time. Adding weight on squat too, but not military press. Dips, I'll start doing weighted. Or maybe wait untill Friday.

    I'll probally stop it when I can't make fast gains anymore, then move on to an intermediate strength routine. I'd say SS is going pretty well so far

    I got my black belt in TKD as a kid, now I train in Muay Thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu, but not as consistantly as I'd like. I also do some boxing/wrestling and krav maga.

    Power clean 140 5x3

    Pretty good workout, felt good. I'll move up on squats and military presses next time but power cleans were hella hard.

    Damn, I've missed two workouts! Starting monday, I'm going to start cracking down hard on my training intensity and make sure that I get 4,000 calories with enough protein.

    My shipment from bodybuilding.com came in (custom pre-workout blend) and I took it before school to test it out. I never thought a supplement would give me too much energy but oh my god... I can't keep still, even five hours after taking it. It's like I did four lines of coke this is insane. My workout tomorrow is gonna be epic.

    Squat 195 3x5
    Military press 100 3x5
    Power clean 135 5x3
    Dip 3x5

    I had to lower the weight on military press and power clean as I was stalling. Squats went well but I'm unsure as to whether or not to raise the weight next time. A couple questions-

    1. How can I recover faster? Squatting three days a week is killing my legs and also my muscles don't seem to be able to recover.

    2. When do I complete SS? I've already stalled on some lifts.

    1. I'm squatting 2x a week now, The soreness seems to kill a lot of time. Somethings I do to at least try to make a difference is stretch on off days. Make sure your getting your protein in, and then sometimes I take a brisk walk to ease the pain. Other than that, unless you got a little "help" there's nothing much you can do about it.

    2. Like you said up to you. If you're stalling I think the nooby gains are over and it's time to kick some ass, don't you think so?

    Just an update to share something. When I started lifting my target was 190 at 6'1, which I just reached. Unfortunately I don't look nearly as good as I thought I would at 190, but I'm looking pretty solid. This is probably due to my body fat changing from 10% to 13-14%, which sucks but hey it's just part of bulking so it's fine. I'm going to continue bulking until the point I can get down to 190 shredded. I'm also pretty weak for my weight, but that's mostly due to my age and lack of training experience. Soon I'm stopping starting strength as I've already stalled and I'm likely going to run the Texas method to get stronger.

    Everyone, thanks a lot for your support so far
