Hey everyone, i’ve been a follower of this site for a while, but this is my first post. I wouldn’t usually post but i see a lot of people are putting their lifts up here for some added motivation and advice, so i figure i could benefit from the same.
Me and my buddies tested our max bench squat and deadlift last friday. Here are my numbers:
Im 19, and am 231 lbs. Also, i play linebacker at a university in Canada. I am aware these numbers are quite weak, and that is why i am posting them. I am looking forward to posting new, much higher ones by the end of the summer.
I plan on training with a program similar to one coach Joe Defranco would prescibe (i.e. modified westside) so i plan on focusing on my posterior chain, and max strength. Also, i am carrying a little too much fat on my stomach, so this summer will be the first time i am actually going to be serious about my diet. Like I said I play football so that is my main reason for lifting right now. I know this test means nothing on the feild but i only run a 4.89 -40, and as such i hope this summer will bring that along with many other qualities about my performance up.
