After reading through a ton of logs and posts and seeing how everyone has a different style but are still getting results (such as @ActivitiesGuy, @flipcollar, @MarkKO, @ape288, etc). I see the common theme is to put on your hard hat, grab your lunch pail, and get into the gym and put in some hard work over a long period of time. Reps and sets and programs aren’t want gives you results. It’s busting ass in the gym, eating well, resting, and moving around.
I think I need to set some number goals on some big lifts, so I have something to work towards.
My goals will be the following numbers. I don’t know how to setup a timeline, but I know how to focus when I set my mind to it, I really get after it and get it done one way or the other.
These are not 1RMs, but just general numbers that I hit for my work sets or top set what ever you guys want to call it.
Back Squat 405lbs
Press 225lbs (Strict Press or Push Press)
BB Row 315lbs
I don’t know if these numbers reflect imbalances or anything of that nature, but it would be awesome to hit these numbers. I think I would be strong and look strong.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Because I only have a barbell, squat stand, plates/bumpers mix, 1-85lb db and 1-100lb db, and a dip/pullup station this is the only equipment I’ll have access to get strong.
My current program setup is the following:
Squat or Front Squat
Press or Push Press
Roman Leg Raises (using the dip tower)
Any advice would be helpful!
