If things go at all well, I think I'm going to start squatting again next week!

Lactic acid "burn", DOMS and other indications of work are usually not very good indicators in my experience. I only seem to progress if I'm working to failure once or twice a week.

She meant the pain of lactic acid buildup, which I admittedly would have said was important to exercise "working" at the time. These days I think if you are getting lactic acid burn you are probably engaged in f-arounditis.

So you are doing leg press? For 20s as a novice lifter? Bah. Squat and deadlift, sets of 5. It's actually easier and more effective. Read as much as possible on the starting strength wiki if you want somewhere to start.

I started a new gym regime 3 times a week for 30 mins. 6 people at a time, each with their individual programme.The trainer (who is a young Irish-football player) pushes us hard and I am sore after every session but I love it. As Jane Fonda used to say 'no pain no gain'. She was right but I think she meant that exquisitely tender muscle pain you get after working out hard whereas people chose to think she meant injury-induced pain. So I leg pressed 3 x 20 at 60kg. My 16yr-old son laughed at my attempts on the bench press-' what no weights- just the bar?' he chuckles! Well for an oul' wan I don't think I'm too bad but I hope to improve and at least get a few weights on the bench press by Christmas.

10 pound dumbbell squats are a big fail. If it's not your first workout then you should have at least half your bodyweight on a bar on your back for at least 5. Anything less would be uncivilized!

230x5, 230x5, 230x4. Still an average squatter, but progressing. Pulled the 390x1 dead tonight and after failing 395, I managed to get it. Maybe a week from now we'll be talking about a 400.

Tested some 1RM's this evening. After 225x5x3 squat work sets, I did a 245x1, just barely. Also tested 1RM deadlift. I tried to pull 390 twice and failed. Pulled a 385 though. Might be getting stuck, we'll see.

Doesn't sound like enough weight. How many reps until failure?

OK OK OK!!! I'll do squats. With 8 or 10lb dumbbells and 10lb kbells.

Awesome! A results topic I can get behind. You gotta start somewhere.

I'm planning on lifting tonight, so if I do, I'll post my results.

Yesterday I had my 3rd SS workout, I squatted 175lbs. Ratio sucks of course since I'm still heavy... 0.65.

Strength training is key, and the cornerstone of a great strength program is the squat--so post your numbers and your ratios here.
