You did to many sets before you attempted your 515lbs. Cut the sets down and you'll have more in you in the end.
Hard to say if that's the case or not.

Sometimes if I skip a set I get some heavier lifts, but many times it overloads my CNS and I go nowhere.

Tweaking the progression sets on the big three is an art for sure....

Thanks for stopping by.

Reviewing your routine i got to ask:

You max on squat and deadlift each week? Obviously you know what you are doing but that seems a little much on the CNS

Just curious. I wasnt sure if you meant an actual max or just a heavy working single.

Squaterday

Squats were a real chore today, but I dug deep and was able to make some meagre progress. No new ground at the top end, but I was able to get a triple @ 365 with no belt or wraps and a triple at 385 with the belt & wraps. Maxxed out at 435 for a single.

Put the hurt on the leg curl machine, repping the stack for 5 sets of 8.

sweet squatting. looks like you need a new leg curl machine though :D

what is your max squat? i seem to recall you nailing a 455 or 475 squat at some point..... might be wrong though

Thanks G.

I got 505 in January of this year at the end of my dreamer bulk @ 255 lbs or so. Was a little balls out max to celebrate 2 years of lifting again. I got 495 a few times and was getting 475 on the reg before my cut.

Looking to get 545 next year.

Best squat ever was 555 at age 26, 18+ years ago.....I would be stoked to beat that in my 40's. We shall see.

And about the leg curl machine....I'll be throwing some extra plates on top of that 200lb stack very soon.

Here's a vid of the 505. Not as deep as I usually go, but looked at least parallell to me:

Delts & Triceps

Well someone sure slept in today. No t me; the jackass that was supposed to open up the gym. Got there a little after 5 and the doors were locked, and a few people waiting in their cars. I gave it 5 minutes then fish-tailed out of the lot and headed to the other club in the area.

Had a decent worked but due to the kaphuckery and lost time I dropped one exercise.
