3X5........Squats....175 Lbs. Good.....Add 5Lbs
3X5........OHP.........62 Lbs. PR! I know. Pathetic

NO PR is pathetic!

Besides, string together a whole bunch of those over a few years and you'll be very strong.

Where exact does your arm hurt? Is it at the top of the forearm muscles connecting at the medial epicondyle shown below?

Yep, it's the medial thing on my right arm. Strangely, medium intensity exercise makes it feel better.

I can do palms facing each other pulldowns all day. But palms facing me, it hurts.

Be very extremely careful and conservative with that injury, known as Golfer's Elbow. Those are notorious for taking literally years to heal, if they do at all. I had a case a few years ago that knocked me out of doing pullups for two years IIRC. I think it'll probably still come back if I get careless.

Mine went away during a time of doing Starting Strength, eating a lot, and doing a lot of icing and hard massage. I don't know which of those helped. My guess is the slowly progressing deadlift grip work, along with better recovery from eating like crazy, did the trick. I used a hook grip instead of opposing. I had just had hernia surgery, so was progressing from 65 lb deadlift up to pretty decent weights over the course of a year or so IIRC.

Thanks for the advice, Brad. I may have to submit a workman's comp claim since it happened on the job.

Another PR! Awesome. How'd you go from 65 to 67? Micro-loading washers or plates?

I've got a beautiful set of stainless steel micro plates a guy named 'Herk' gave me. This was when we were on the old Cyberpump web site.

Been sick the last two days with the flu. Hope to lift tonight.

Wow, did you get the flu shot?

Get well soon! I would've thought that'd knock a person out for more than a couple of days. I'm not much for working out when sick, though.

That's awesome you've kept this running log for so long. Congrats!

Is there a reason for the low OHP weight? I only ask because I'm currently on the following weights:

165 5x5 squat
285 1x5 deadlift
100lb 5x5 OHP
140 5x5 bench
115 5x5 pendlay row

I imagine your OHP should be much higher, but you could have an injury or sis thing I don't know about. If you're squatting 185 like that then you should be pumping out muscle on your whole body. Maybe it's an age thing? I'm only 27 so I'm still young.

I started about 2 months ago (being serious about it). Before that it was like a year and a half of on and off lifting, which ultimately ended with me stopping and getting fat (215 lbs fat as of October). I started my career in October and there's a gym in my office building so I've been going religiously.

I'm doing stronglifts 5x5 for now but ultimately gonna switch it up once I hit more plateaus. As of right now the above listed weights are pretty much all PRs for me so I have nowhere to go but up. I take whey protein everyday. I also started takin creatine about 2-3 weeks ago (I know....I know...but it's so cheap $20 for 6 month supply). I'll be honest too, it works. I feel the difference in the gym. I have little to no trouble reppin out my last 3 reps on my. 5th set. Used to struggle there. I also was able to deadlift 3 plates for multiple reps, as well as did 135OHP for a few reps. I was just messin around trying to find my max.

My shoulders have always been my one of two weak spots. Chest is also bad for me. Genetics, I guess. Keep up the good work!
