I’m 170lbs; 1 year and 1 month of gym training, split in order into: about 8 months of generic mass/hypertrophy training, 4 months of strength/mass training (5x5 but with more hypetrophy work), 2 months of 5/3/1.
Deadlift - estimated 1RM @320lbs, improving quickly, expecting to hit 2x bodyweight very soon. I’m in the second month of 5/3/1, right before I started I could barely do 265lbs x3 with good form, the previous week I did 260lbs x8 in the 3+ week. Today I have the 1+ day and quite sure I’ll be able to hit 6 reps (shooting for 7). Overall it’s the best improving lift.
Overhead Press - estimated 1RM @134lbs, right before starting 5/3/1 the tested 1RM was 128lbs. Slowest lift to progress, as expected, yesterday I was able to hit 5 reps in the 1+ day (I use a 90% TM and was recommended here on the boards to hit at least 4 reps without grind on 1+ days as good measure of NOT stalling, so I’m gonna swallow the results and see where I go from there).
Front Squats - don’t have a 1RM on these because I’m still perfecting technique so I’m going super slow. I started off placing the 1RM at170lbs (my bodyweight) which is on the low side for me, but worked wonders to improve my technique. My issue with these is in thoracic mobility, I tend to fall forward a bit, has improved a ton but I stop the AMRAP sets as soon as I feel form is breaking down, even slightly (hence my question about Good Mornings and thoracic mobility btw, if they can also help with that it’s going to be golden)
Short term goal is 2x bw deadlift. Long term goal is 1x bw OHP and 2x bw deadlift x3 then x5
