STRENGTH TRAINING

Workout A:

Squat: 3 sets x 5 reps
Overhead Press: 3 sets x 5 reps
Deadlift: 1 set x 5 reps
Workout B:

Squat: 3 sets x 5 reps
Bench Press: 3 sets x 5 reps
Deadlift: 1 set x 5 reps
Weight Load:

Starting Strength doesn’t calculate 1RM. To find your working set of 5 (or 1 for deadlift), most beginners start from the bar and perform warm up sets and keep adding weight until the bar/movement speed slows or form starts to break down (this is your first working set weight). The goal is to find the weight that brings you to near failure for 5 reps. Sometimes you may not actually be able to get 5 reps, and that's ok, because by the next session you should be able to, and that is progression.

Keep track each session of what weight load you lifted so you can increase the next session.
