Squat: 200 lbs starting, 285 lbs current
Bench: 85 lbs starting, 145 current
OHP: 65 lbs starting, 115 lbs current
Deadlift: 185 lbs starting, 285 current
Time lifting: 5 months
I don't know how people start so high with squats. I started like 6 days ago and did 5 135s and said fuck this.
Squats - 95
Bench - 185
OHP - 135
Deadlift - 225
I'm mostly using it to get my form down right now. I can bench 225 and deadlift 275 and even that was easy. Squats though are hard as fuck on me. I didn't think my legs were that weak.
I'm going to continue working on my form on each lift though and am going to purposefully lowball myself. The only one I feel comfortable doing is ohp and even then I don't think it's great.
Squat 80kg(176 lbs) x 5 -> 100kg(220 lbs) x 5
Bench 60kg(132 lbs) x 5 -> 85kg(187 lbs) x 5
OHP 40kg(88 lbs) x 5 -> 50kg(110 lbs) x 5
Time lifting: 3 months
I used to lift then I stopped for around a year due to circumstances. Now back on the band wagon lost 3kg and started to look a lot leaner and muscular
I'll try my best to remember
Squat: 135lbs starting, 405lbs current
Bench: 95lbs starting, 300lbs current
Deadlift: 185lbs starting, 495 current
OHP: 80lbs starting, 190 current
Lifting about 3 years
I lift shit at work all day in construction. That's why I'm dissapointed in squats because I used my legs to rip 20 some feet of poles out of the ground filled with crushed rock from time to time.
But I was doing elevated one armed pushups and basically a lot of pushups before then. Haven't benched in like a decade before a week ago. Which is why I'm so worried about form. Also I gave myself a hernia benching like 130 pounds back then.
And I do 185 5 times for 3 sets. That's just me trying to get my form down. I tried 225 though and did it fairly easily and then my weight holder shifted back (homemade power rack) so I didn't want to try again.
That should answer all the questions about me
I avoid posting in these threads as it's usually full of DYELs congratulating each other on their weak lifts but I hit some PRs today so fuck it.
Squat: 135 starting, 410x5 current

I don't do deadlifts lmao
Squat: 135 --》245lbs
Bench: 145 --》215lbs
OHP: 80 --》115lbs
DL: 160 --》300lbs
3 months, just started SS three weeks ago though. Before just did compounds.
I have really bad shoulder joints so I have difficulty gaining on OHP. Any recommendations? I could maybe do more on squats but I'm really concerned about keeping form. How am I doing lads?
I stayed on SS until I hit 1/2/3/4 (took about 12 months sadly) & switched over to Texas Method hoping to hit 1.5/3/4.
I hit the 4 place squat surprisingly earlier than I thought so I'm modifying the program a little to slow progression on squats while I wait to hit the 3 plate bench and 1.5 OHP.
Time lifting 7 years
Used to train for uni track. Was 400m runner. Now that's all over I just train to enjoy
>I'm modifying the program a little to slow progression on squat
Why do people do this?
If you're progressing, and look aesthetic, why are you purposefully hindering yourself?
Honestly curious, beeteedubs
I honestly doubt I'm going to be able to continue consistently adding 2.5lbs onto my squats weekly at this stage. I'm aiming for 2.5lbs every fortnight right now and I plan to switch over to 5/3/1 as soon I hit the 3 plate bench anyway.
Monthly progression will take me to a 500 squat in a good amount of time, I don't compete so why should I rush?
>then my weight holder shifted back (homemade power rack) so I didn't want to try again.
do yourself a favor dont ever fucking try it again. People die benching in homemade power racks all the time.
I have spotter bars. The issue is I need to find something to stop the thingers from shifting. Rubber washers or something. Maybe weld something on that side.
The rack is sturdy. The holders shift like fuck though. Maybe I will die, who knows, who cares. Tomorrow's a rest day and I need to go to the hardware store anyway.
Bench 70kg 5x5 ->100kg
Squat: 40kg 5x5-> 70kg
Deadlift 60kg 5x5-> 110kg
1RM: Bench 120kg Deadlift 140kg
Been 8 months, never really squatted or deadlifted before this. But I have a really fucked up knee so I go slow and not really heavy on squats
Lifting with 5x5 (not a program, but with those set/rep ranges) for 3-4 months with each lift 1.5 times each week. I have done deadlifts for two months. Last two weeks I have gone up to two times a week for each lift.
Squat: 65kg (143) -> 110kg (242)
Bench: 55kg (121) -> 90kg (198)
deadlift: 100kg (220) -> 130kg (286)
Squat: 30 > 80 KG
how the fuck nigga?
I've we started the same but you outlifted me in half the time>>35816964
here's my tip for deadlifting: don't stiffleg that shit, make sure you drive with your shest first
No fucking clue DESU, it happened when I went from my 'health club' gym (no squat rack, hack squats) to my uni gym with a rack, just kept loading on weight trying to find where it was and hit 80.
And yeah, my DL sucks, gonna sort that form out next week on my push day to get a good PR in on Leg day.
Squat 175lbs -> 320lbs
Bench 93lbs -> 222lbs
Deadlift 198lbs -> 374lbs
~1.5years of lifting. a lot of cutting in the beginning because I was a fatass and didn't only focus on strength but I am still pretty happy about my progress.
Squat: 45lbs(the fucking bar)x5 ,current 310lbs x 4
Bench:45lbs(also the bar)x5, current 150lbs x 4
OHP: I just use dumbbells
Deadlift: 95lbs x 5, current 365lbs x 2
time lifting: 16months current weight 165lbs around 20% bf
my progress is pretty much shit since I get sick too often for weeks on end and having to deload often just so I dont fuck myself up is pretty annoying but at least it's progress.
>Yeah, I'm not too cut up about it, as far as I'm concerned the fact I've stuck with this iron bullshit is an achievement in itself.
hell yeah! before I started this summer I was just a lazy piece of shit that did no sports and just sat on his ass in front of the computer for 10+ hours/day
I started squatting high bar but they just kill my back because I squat atg so I think I'll make the change to low bar because they're way comfier
front squats though, they're fucking great
my fav. deadlift accessory is snatch pulls (look 'em up) they're much better than power cleans
and for bench, I feel like dips helped me the most getting the bar off my chest and pendlay rows for a controlled descent
there's no reason to do low bar unless you want to be a fat powerlifter, which I do so that's my excuse
I don't know what it is about weightlifting, but I just find being able to lift something I couldn't lift in the past enjoyable.
As for the snatch pulls, I'll look into those, not sure if I can drop weights in my gym though (it's a tiny demountable).
And if I'm entirely honest, I have no clue what I do, I just looked at a form diagram and said high bar because it looks close enough, I'll clarify with the gym officer who does form checks.
>not sure if I can drop weights in my gym though
you don't have to drop them, I don't
you just take 30% off from your normal deadlift and just jump with a shrug at the end
I wasn't sure whether I was high bar or low bar either until I actually did propper low bar, which is fucking uncomfortable to get into position because it's not on your traps, it's actually on the back, on the posterior delts
69 kg, massive quads relative to my size. Didn't squat, bench or deadlift. Only did dumbbell work. Used around 30 kg for flat db press.
Still did bro split which lead to nothing. I never skipped a day but I trained like fucking idiot without knowing. Squatted like 60 kg with horrible form. No deadlift or barbell bench yet.
80 kg squat for 5
Finally started using barbell bench. around 65 for 5.
Deadlift was 125 cause I thought maxing out was fun.
Starting training for strength but I was still fucking around. Did so much program hopping. Squat 100 kg for 5. Deadlift was the same. Bench the same.
Finally did candito 6 week.
Squat 125 kg
Gonna start my 3rd candito cycle monday.
The max are 5 kg lower than true maxes, since my experience tells me it's better to lower it and hit top end range on the sets.
Sq 60 x5 to 130 x 5
Bp 45 x5 to 85 x 8
DL ??? to 147x 5
