Re: Mike's Starting Strength and GOing MAD

Workout #4 (B), 5/27/2010:
Squat 2x5x45, 1x5x75, 1x3x110, 1x2x150, 3x5x180
Press 2x5x45, 1x5x50, 1x3x65, 1x5x80, 3x5x95
Pull-up 1x5x45, 1x5x105, 1x4x155 (~bw), 1x3x165, 2x5x190, 1x5x195, 1x4x195 fail

I forgot to up the weight on pull-ups until I was 2 working sets in. I keep looking at my previous numbers and thinking I need to repeat them, but I think I'm getting better at following the program.

Squats felt hard already. Isn't it a little early for that? Maybe I started too heavy? I think I could have done maybe 190 for as many reps/sets, but that would have felt REALLY hard. I'm not in love with the idea of having to reset squats 2 weeks into the program.

But I suppose I'll do what I have to do.
