Race to 500lb Squat Part 2

It seems the old thread ran it’s course…

Hoping to hit a 500lb Raw Squat by the end of the year. I have a little extra incentive from my Father who gave me 2:1 odds I couldn’t hit it.

This thread is for anyone to join along and keep track of their progress.

Let’s get it done.

I’ll join in, although it might take a while as I’ve just hit 405. Good luck btw - how far have you got to go?

I plan on maxing in the near future then taking some time off and running Smolov. I’ve hit 405 but took some time off for personal reasons. Now that I am back into it I’ve been able to doing working sets with 375/385 which is more than I was able to do prior to my time off. I’ll be sure to post my new max and keep it updated once I run Smolov.

In. In the low 4s right now, but would like to hit 5 by the end of the summer or thereabouts.

This should include deadlifts: I just started deadlifting a few months ago, so I’m at 450 right now. Want 500 by end of semester.
