A year ago i was missing days of work because my back was so f***ed up. I bought starting strength, studied it, and began a 5x5 program with very very light weights to try to strengthen my back. 'I set a new deadlift PR of 295x3 today. I know that isn't huge but it is for me. This is the first time I have ever been able to come close to handling respectable poundages. I'm very proud and wanted to share. Thanks for listening.
