Well, it’s been forever since I’ve posted on this site. I won’t bore anyone with the details, but I’m here now.
I’m signing up to compete in my first powerlifting meet. May 12th, Joneseboro, Ga.
6’0 and 178.4 lbs bodyweight as of 2/11/12
Deadlift- was 305 in december.
OHP- 115 moooonths ago.
Bench- Never maxed, though I estimate 175 ish.
Squat- 225 a year ago?
needless to say I know I need to re-max. Frankly though, I’ve just been training heavy and basing workout percentages off old maxes.
I hit a pr 2 weeks ago in the deadlift though. I got 285 x 5, and I hadn’t done that before. I might’ve been capable all along but I never lifted with a 5 rep scheme. I used to always lift in 8-10.
I’m cycling 5/3/1 with bodybuilding asst work this month and hunkering down for all of march and april.
Today was chest and tris and it went like:
Bench (Machine) 5/3/1 scheme week 2.
115 x 3
145 x 3
155 x 3
BW Dips 4 x 10
Pec Fly 4 x 12 90lbs
Tri Pushdown 5 x 20
Pushup to fail 4 sets. 22,10,10,12
