    Um, hello. I'm here with my new training log.

    Background: I'm in the Air Force and I do computer stuff. With me having taken my pt test last week, I thought it is time that I finally start a dedicated weightlifting program, and I chose Stronglifts. This is my first time following a dedicated program, before I just did whatever with no coherent organization.

    Weight:140 lb.
    Height: 66 inches, so 5 feet and 6 inches.

    Goals: Build some muscle.

    I just want to take Stronglifts as far as I can, and then I'll see where I go next.

    UPDATE 1: Post number 44. Shifted to more cardio based workout.

    Today: Workout A

    Squat (5 x 45lb) x5
    Bench Press (5 x 45lb) x5
    Barbell Row(5x 45lb) x 5

    90 seconds between sets.

    Damn, feel sore in my legs. Guess I get that for never seriously squatting before.

    I think I'll upload videos of me doing the exercises, just to get feedback on form. I need to get the form down pat before I progress onto heavier weights to avoid injury.

    Nothing officially, but I did move parts of the stage around to set up the pep rally tomorrow. So moving furniture and carrying unshapely objects count as working out today?

    Welcome back. By the way, what's your ethnicity, if I may ask?

    0715- Official pt today. Ran/walked 1.5 miles on outdoor track. Not the best idea because it was very cold outside and I didn't have long pants or jacket.
