Hot shit. I’m sure you could’ve done more than 375. The stronger you get, the harder it is to find an accurate max number. I lifted with my girlfriend a few days ago and this became very apparent. When you deadlift 375, 380 isn’t much different. However, my girlfriend had a MUCH harder time benching 105 than 100. only 5 lbs, but a 5% increase.
Ok i kind of rambled, but the point is that you should definitely go for at least 380-385 next week. At your age, I bet you’re growing ridiculously fast. I’m only 21 and I feel old hahah
Yeah im confident i could have done more. I just dont like to pull an all-out max on a lift such as the DL, there is alot more you can mess up when comapring it to lifts such as the bench. To those who are wondering, i do not powerlift, i dont wan’t to really, it isnt the look im going for. Im more less a bodybuilder (as most of you would assume anyway). Currently benching 260 (lagging a bit), and i squat 320, which isnt so bad. Ill update you guys when i make new PR’s. Im gaining real quick, still. i started off at a tiny 155, not saying 195 is alot, but its a better starting point… hah…
thanks to you guys for the feedback, ill keep you updated.
