have moved my workouts from SLIC to fitocracy now. that's a pretty friendly place, though in-depth conversation isn't gonna happen because it's another social media 2.0 site (or whatever we're on), and who needs more than a few hundred characters to say anything on those? ergo it's very superficial, but tracking my workout is easy, and it gives me performance graphs. i should probably look into doing this on a spreadsheet.

Standing Barbell Shoulder Press (OHP)
1x5 @ 45 lb
1x5 @ 55 lb
2x5 @ 60 lb
3x5 @ 55 lb

volume: 1925 lb

woops, forgot i was gonna stay at the same weight as last workout. did 2 sets at 60lb before noticing. no problem, and my form was decent. but lowered it to 55 for the last 3 sets, to get more form practice in. staying at the same weight until my form is good is something i should have done from the start. maybe i should write a book for people like me, because everybody is all "put more weight on!", and while yeah, that's important for strength gains, the more one works on form from the very start, the better it'll go when the weight gets higher. i have seen so much execrable form and injuries in the SLIC, that was a bit of a shocker. i don't want to go down that road.

Barbell Deadlift
1x5 @ 75 lb
1x5 @ 110 lb
5x5 @ 130 lb PR

volume: 4550 lb

starting to feel it in my hands now; otherwise this is still not particularly hard, which is why i am still doing 5 full sets of working weight.

One-Arm Dumbbell Row
5x10 @ 30 lb

volume: 1500 lb

no problem. gonna either start adding reps or weight. probably reps for now so i don't have to microload.

total volume: 6475 lb
