Benchmark Workouts 2012

Goals (Starting/Current/Target) (my Targets are to get back to 2009 PR’s)
Deadlift (160/250/380)
Back Squat (160/305/275) (Tied and crush previous 2009 PR on 7/16/12)
Press (90/105/155)
Power Clean (75/125/165)
Bench Press (**/150/220*) (*PR from over 10 years ago)
Pullups (Assisted/*/15)

Workouts primarily consist of using Starting Strength for steady linear progressions that hopefully adapt my tendons and joints to the progressive weight increases.  (I started SS at less than 50% of previous PRs).
