Deadlift was kinda iffy… didnt feel very good but overall not a lot of corrections needed. Probably just one of those days where it doesn’t feel perfect. However, I didnt use straps for the first time on 425.

Today is an off day for me. I figured I would post my goals and where I am in relation to them.
I am 6’1" and 24 years old.
Currently, I am on a bulk with hopes of being about 220 by the end (Possibly January). 1 week ago I was 194.3 and this morning I was 200.6.
Macros are in the areas of 250P, 100F, 230C. These numbers are day to day depending on training (legs= high carb)

As far as PRs are concerned, I would like to see…
425 Back Squat (Current: 365x2)
500 Deadlift (Current: 455x1)
365 Bench Press (Current: 275x4)
225 Overhead Press (Current: 180x1)
335 Front Squat (Current: 275x2)
135 Weighted Pullup (Current: 100x3)

I realize that some of these goals are further away than others. My reasoning for this is simply that I have not put a lot of emphasis on certain lifts in the past (Overhead Press) and I feel certain that with a little more focus on that specific lift I can see large increases, especially with a gain of roughly 20lbs in the next few months.

Anyone with critique/advice fire away.
