Workout Log for 2-14-2015 to 2-20-2015

So I decided to carefully, slowly start working out with barbells again.  After the long hiatus, it felt sensible to actually try Starting Strength, literally from the beginning, so no pullups/chinups/power-anything this first week.

Saturday (2-14-2015)

squat 45 3x5, 95 2x5, 135 1x5, 185 3x5
bench 45 2x5, 95 1x5, 135 3x5
deadlift 135 2x5, 185 1x5, 225 3x5

Monday (2-16-2015)
squat 45 3x5, 95 2x5, 135 1x5, 195 3x5

press 45 2x5, 75 2x5, 95 3x5
deadlift 135 1x5, 185 1x5, 225 1x5, 255 2x5

Weight (Sunday): 182 lb

Notes: Being extra-careful with my left shoulder.  Right knee is upset if I'm not exactly right on my squat form.  Pretty sure I tweaked something trying to do one-legged squats.  So my intuition about those (a balance trick more than a strength move, probably best learned when young and small, not especially safe, etc.) proved correct.  Going to keep very slow on squats until I'm sure my form isn't getting out of line when I'm over 200#.
