Ok, over the yrs I’ve been tracking my lifts I’ve always noticed this odd unbalance. Not exactly sure why, but I just can’t seem to train out the imbalance.
6’4", 270lb body fat per calipers is 20%
Wingspan matches height, floor to waist though is long, 44". Long legs, wonder if this is some of the issue.
I’ll list the working weights, reps of 5 vs 1rpm as I haven’t actually checked those in a long time.
Bench press flat: 325
Bench press incline: 295
Military press: 205
Bent over row: 295
Calf raises: 375x15
Bulgarian split squat: 215
Upper body strength is ok, and oddly I really don’t focus on it over lower. I don’t think I look like I spend a lot of time in the gym, sure I’m big but my chest is not defined at all. I’ll admit my arms are big, don’t do any isolated arm routines though.
Upper legs tape at 26", too me they don’t look big, then again I’m tall. I’ve got a long history of mountain bike riding, 30yrs and counting… I try and ride at least 15 miles a week. I hate running, but do like interval sprinting, I can sprint like a mofo for 10secs…
So what gives, I honestly struggle with adding weight to the squat and dead. I thought single leg squats would help pick up the slack… not really, nice changeup, really hits the glutes.
Should I really be bothered by it? Am I being too picky? Deadlift bugs me, if the bar was, oh… another 6" off the ground then I can really up the weight. Pulling from pins I can do 600lb. I get that the dead can be problematic depending on limb length, but the squat?
