After a three week break from lifting and ordering Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe (which won't arrive until August 14), I've made up my own routine that I will start tomorrow. Are there any experienced lifters out there who can provide some feedback please?
5x5 each of back squats, chin ups and dips (increasing load to reach 5RM in the last set)
5x5 each of deadlifts, push ups and overhead presses (increasing load, reps for push ups, to reach 5RM in the last set)
I prefer to work on push ups rather than bench at the moment because I'm a weak little girl who can barely do five. I would warm up and cool down with 5 minutes increasing/decreasing speed each on an elliptical. I would do A and B alternately, resting enough between each until I feel fully recovered (most likely be doing some yoga or dance in between). I'm 17, 172cm, 62kg. I eat 100% Paleo. Thanks in advance, and if anyone has reviews or thoughts on SS, that would be greatly appreciated as well.
