    SQUAT
    5x5x25k
    Easy but probably enough muscle soreness to keep it slow.

    BENCH PRESS
    5x5x25k
    Same as squats

    BARBELL ROW
    5x5x32.5k
    I did made a mistake previous workout by doing this with only 20k, it had to be 30k. Well makes a difference… I really felt my back. Somethign I never felt before. No pain, just the stretch in my back….

    SQUAT
    5x5x30k
    I probably need to look on how to warm up soon because the weight i’m lifting starts dading up by now.

    SHOULDER PRESS
    5x5x25k
    HEAVY!!! I almost didn’t make it. So I Will go slow on this exercise from now. Also: warm up

    DEADLIFT
    1x5x45k
    I felt awkward today doing this. Don’t know why. Probably because there where to much hot guys in the room, my hormones where clearly jumping. Tried to clear my mind but it was difficult because I was so energetic due to the workout. Maybe something to look at (state of mind) in my other journal. Next time better, hu?

    Definitely warm up. And not hormonally ;-)

    Haha Jax. I won’t! No, but seriously. I feel a lot better lately probably because I’m working out. (Healthy body = healthy mind) so I guess it is time to work on controlling my mind and thoughts better!

    Quote on warming up from the program:

    Quote:
    Start with two sets of five reps with the empty bar on Squats, Bench and Overhead Press. Then add 10-20kg (25-45lb) and do 2-3 reps. Keep adding 10-20kg, doing 2-3 reps on each set, until you’ve reached your 5×5 weight. Don’t rest between these warmup sets to keep your workout short. This means you don’t do any warmup sets for the Squat, Bench and Overhead Press the first weeks of StrongLifts 5×5 because your 5×5 work weight is the empty bar or close above it. But once you’re lifting 30kg/65lb for 5×5, warmup by doing two sets with the empty bar for the Squats, Bench Press and Overhead Press. Empty bar warmup sets don’t work for Barbell Row and Deadlift. The bar has to start at mid-shin level for proper form, you can’t hold it in the air. Plus, since you’re doing compound exercises, your whole body is warmed up already by the time you have to Barbell Row or Deadlift. So you can start heavier here.

    I really felt this in my right calf. I’m happy I can rest two days now so my legs will have some healing time. Did a 2km walk which felt great. I have to add my calfs aren’t anymore stiff and hard al the time since doing these squats. Which is somethign that happens a lot to me.

    still figuring this one out, I think I have to be explosive when pulling it up and slowly reverse the moment to have the best possible movement

    I’m thinking about making my OWN program, a mix between stronglifts and starting strength. Stronglifts is good, but has a lot of pressure on the back by doing deadlifts AND rows. Starting streng only does the deadlifts. Also, by looking into both programs I think and feel like I should trust Mark Rippetoe (SS) more than Mehdi (SL). Mark is 1. Older and has more experience, 2. Has more scientific knowledge about the body than Mehdi.
