So starting back after two months I finally found out where I am at for weight wise .
Squat: 295 lbs
Bench: 205 lbs
Deadlift: 365 lb
Be: 170lb

My short term goals are
Squat : 315 lbs -350 lbs
Bench: 225 lbs - 250 lbs
Deadlift: 400 lbs - 450lb

Long term goals are
Squats: 400 lbs plus
Bench : 300 lbs
Deadlift: 500lb -600 lbs

I’d also like to loose a few pounds.
Target bw: 155lbs -160lbs

In order to compete I need an ipf approved singlet . Yuck I don’t like those ,shoes and belt .
I also practiced my overhead press the other day and sumo deadlifts. I’m trying to get use to the wide stance .

You don’t need heavy weights for a good work out . I Tried something new today . About 4 or 5 sets of 5 reps . But all in a slow motion and pausing between movements. So squats : you slowly squat down hold for about 5 seconds then lift and repeat. Warmed up with a few reps of 135lbs and worked all the way up to 295 lbs . Then dropped to 135 lbs for reps and worked my way up to 195 lbs and then back down to 135 lbs . Then light leg press and stand up calf raises . Simple easy but it works .
and 6 hours after I feel it . Have I been training wrong this whole time.

You're not going to make a lot of progress lifting once a month.

Lol no I go about 3-5 days a week. I normally do bench twice a week since it’s my worse lift . I went from working out with 135lbs to 170lbs in a couple months. Yesterday’s work out was brutal incline bench with 175lbs . And almost got a 405lb deadlifts the other day. The progress is showing and it feels good . Can’t wait to see what June will bring once the competitions start again.

Holly shit I’m passed my Plateau for my bench press . On the smith machine I did 2 sets of 4 and a single set of 2 of 205lbs for reps that’s huge like and yes I know there is a big difference between the smith and the normal bench . I guess I will find out where I am at when I finish my program

So next week I need to complete
bench 180lbs 2x5
squats 240lbs 2x5
Deadlifts 300lbs 2x5.
Then any accessory work outs are normally 4x5 to 5x5 . I like the 5 sets of five because it Doesn’t take as much out of me as if I was going for two sets of 15 etc . And you still get your reps in .

Man last nights work out was a killer. My chest and shoulders are some weak feeling today . My workout called for 10 reps on the bench at 180lbs and I got that with a spotter . But after watching my video I just felt like it wasn’t good enough . My form was really sloppy and tipsy. After hauling the weight off I noticed it was the messed up bar I avoid at all time because the weights sit slanted and you can never get balanced because of it . Then I did three sets of 10 with the floor press starting with 95lbs pausing when my triceps sat flat on the floor and then 115lbs doing the same and the last set with 135 with the same pausing movement. Then slept for about 4 hours and retried the 180lbs and being pre fatigued split it up into sets of three and I got 8 out of 10 reps in. Ext weeks 185lbs for 2 sets of three . I think I got this . It’s the 190lbs plus that I’m thinking more like that’s massive. I’m only 175lbs . But if I want my 250lbs I have to work for it
