My squat is at 275x5, bench is 175x5, and deadlift at 350x5. And they are realistic yes, but iâ??ve never just failed like that only on the second week. The first week i started with 115, easy day, then 120 the second time, then 125 i could barely get it up the first set out of 5, it surprised me and kinda really just pissed me off. I know stuff happens but damn i did fine the other day on 125. I will try bringing in my grip as iâ??ve done in the past and see if that works. Iâ??ll be sure to keep everything in mind and iâ??ll definitely try the belt too, i donâ??t think iâ??ve tried that yet.
Usually I mean to go until i know i canâ??t do one more rep, and have someone spot me if i need it. Sometimes I also try to get a forced rep in there if possible.
I was stuck on 155 when i was in spain for a while and couldnâ??t go back to it lmao. But i will prob try the narrower grip again. That is what i used when i got my 155 for 3.
Yea I know about the lat thing iâ??ve been doing that with my elbows forward of my body just about. Iâ??ll try focusing on seeing if iâ??m tightening the rest of my core and my body for when i push it out maybe itâ??ll start increasing. Thanks!
