My goal is to become elite. I got into exercising to relive stress. The more I’ve learned, the more experience I’ve had with lifting, the more I love it and want to excel.
I started exercising a couple of years ago. I was the skinny guy on the smith machines, doing curls, avoiding the free weights. I’ve progressed since those days. I decided to take lifting serious in the fall of last year. I’m now 25 years old, I’m 6’2 217 with a 1075lb total. I want to get to 1700lb total before I’m 30.
I was looking for advice on how to continue to keep getting stronger as productively as possible. I’m sure that a lot of you guys could look back and think, man, if I had known_______ back then, I would have been a lot better off. I was hoping to just get some advice, on any lifts, all lifts. I eat, I lift, I’m fairly patient. I want to push myself hard, as hard as I can, while not going overboard. This site is great for information, I read and read and bring things into my work outs.
I have a 250 bench, 410 squat and 415 dead. I’ve ran the smolov jr and base and loved both, even though it was miserable, it was an awesome miserable. The spread sheet i used came from here, just looking for more.
I never have used bands or chains on any of my lifts. I would like to learn about how to use them and how beneficial those are. Thanks for any positive advice, on lifts, diets, recovery, anything really.
