Only edit the cells in yellow.
The first column, “Test Weight,” is where you will enter your starting weight (or your previous rep maxes). The “Reps,” column can usually be kept at “5” Reps for each exercise. The “lb Increase,” columnis the amount (in lbs.) that you would like to increase each lift per workout.Click here for recommended increases.If you are unsure, leave this fieldalone. The “% to Reset,” column is how far back you'd like to begin before hitting your former maxes and need only be used if you are beginningwith a former rep max or are resetting a lift. It is common to reset 5-15% in that case. The “Smallest Weight,” field is the smallest weight incrementthat can be added to the barbell (usually 5, or less if microloading). Workouts are read by column and the rotation is A/B/A/B. Good luck and GETSTRONG DAMMIT! ~ Bango/JgoodStarting Strength Official WebsiteStarting Strength WikiRippetoe/Starting Strength Question Forum
