I hope someone can put my mind at rest / allay my fears. I have worked out my training plan, diet and have found all my maxes I will post a training log separately in due course. I am now back tracking from my maxes and working out my start weights for the 15's. I am doing an A and B workout so that I can accomodate both squats and deads and I have followed the logic that where there is a major compound exercise/or the weight is heavy (my definition but probably not for you guys) such as the Squats/deads/BB row/Bench/BB Row/Shrug/Calf Raise I will deduct 5 kg (11 lbs) from my max and work back that way. Where there is more of an isloation exercise or if a compound and my weight is light I will deduct 2.5kg (5lbs) This is my problem my OHP is embarassingly weak (in my defence I had a fractured elbow earlier in the year and have had a back problem (prolapsed disc) in the past and this is really the first time I have ever performed this particular exercise) anyway I really struggle on this, my max for the 15's is 15kg (and for the 5's its only 25kg) deducting 2.5 kg (5 lbs) and working back my start weight for the OHP for 15's is 3kg!!!! I have also had some strange maxes come out. My standing calf raise maxes are higher than my deadlifts and squats and my Shrugs seem in line with my deads. Is this normal? and will it adversly effect my progress starting so low on the OHP? Despite lifting like one I am sure I am not an eight year old girl.
