comment Weight gained using GOMAD strategy
@mike, you've confused me with "SS has 15 total sets per day (excluding warm up)". Have I read the program wrong, because I thought it was 7 sets total per day until power cleans come in, then it goes to 11?

comment What to do having underestimated an increment?
However I can definitely see the merit of 'did I accomplish my goals' today, so I think I'll do the 15 pound increment, purely because it's the recommended increment and it seemed to be right, and see how I go.

What I was hoping to do was limit growth by restricting diet so 10 pound increments did feel heavy, rather than limiting growth by lifting not-so-heavy, if that makes sense.

"as long as the weight is going up every workout" - yep, good point.

comment What to do having underestimated an increment?
Definitely not trying to rush--hence choosing an 10 pound increment instead of the recommended 15 pound. But if that 10 pound turned out to be just too easy, especially for deadlifts with just a single workset, stopping there would have made me feel like I just did warmups with no actual workset. Slightly increasing the weight felt not easy, not hard, just good, like it's keeping me on track rather than taking the day off.

comment suggest some diet for me as I want to gain muscles and at same time want to reduce belly fat
I've started doing a 1-1 ratio, i.e. 1 day surplus, 1 day deficit, with a 1-2 once a week. I don't think it'll be as good as a 3-(2-3) though but it's too late for me to drop my workouts from 3 to 2 times a week.

comment Barbell presses without a suitable power/squat rack?
I had a look this morning, Dave, and unfortunately the pins can't be adapted. The owner said just do seated shoulder presses inside the rack (but with no back support). This doesn't sound too good to me, it hurts me just visualising the bend forward to grab the bar.

Good point - I went by Wiki which had the clean starting in workout #2, but I've just checked the book and I should be substituting the deadlift for the first few weeks.
