Today I was able to do my first squat with a 45 plate on each side. It may not seem like much but to me it's a milestone.
A little more background info on what I'm doing right now. I just began working out again and am using Starting Strength as my program. I'm liking the ideas behind it so far. There aren't any good bumper plates at my gym for me to power clean with, so I'm doing other stuff instead of that. I do curls (want them bigger arms) and different back exercises instead.
Here are my current stats:
5'9" and 190lb
Curling 30lb each arm
