Frosty morning bike ride, ice crunching under the tyres, clear blue sky, bright low winter sun, the moon still out. 12 miles on country roads and traffic free surfaced trails, just under and hour, Lovely

Quote on the Father's Sword
Gotta do squats and bench presses for 3/3/3+
All in pounds.
I should get 8-12 reps on the third (3+) sets of each of those. Maybe 14 or 15 on bench.
Probably going to attempt to do some power cleans too, but my form is rubbish. Probably try to force good form for several sets of 3 with a ridiculously light weight, like 115 or 125 depending on how I feel.
Then some accessory work with my jury-rigged makeshift suspension trainer for a little more upper body volume.
New to lifting, first week and just finished my 3rd day.
Squat 65# 5x5 (with the machine that guides you, not sure what it's called; I was careful to squat low, butt below my knees, and oh boy do I feel my legs now...)
Bench press 45# 5x5 (that's right just the barbell, and it's truly challenging.
Dead lift 62# 5x5 (I had room for more, felt good)
Biceps curl 10# per arm, 5x5
Lying leg raises 1x20 (third time this week, definitely feeling that one too!)
I guess starting out conservatively is safest anyway! But I'm curious to hear how this looks...
For background, I've never lifted before; I'm 5'5 for 124#; recently recovered from chronic cardio which means I'm trying to follow PBP Fitness instead of running miles and miles; pretty sedentary otherwise though I do get my share of slow movement each week.
Adopted the Primal lifestyle on: August 9 2012.
My sporadic journal entries are here.
Results to date: I've lost (gained?) one belt hole!
I part of the way through doing a pull up workout. I started off with 3 sets of 8 corn cob pull ups and now I am doing a set of 7 pull ups per minute. I hope to get in at least 200 pull ups.
I finished, only got 173 pull ups but it was a good workout so I am not upset.
