Hey all,

This is where I will post all my training and I want to total 1,300 by my 18th birthday which is on July 16th. I'm totaling 1,025 right now. I've also been training for a year seriously. My current program I am running is Grekyskull LP.

Current numbers:
Squat: 365
Bench Press: 230
Deadlift: 430

Goal Numbers:
Squat:470
Bench Press: 285
Deadlift: 545

Looks like my ratios, kind of. That's a decent goal total, and a year should be achievable. Good luck.

last set of squats felt quite easy as compared to the other days. I no longer good morning my squats as much once i reach failure. I also do not get pumped up for the last set because it becomes part of the training session. I will reserve that for 1 rep max days and competitions.

I could not finish my assistance work because lack of time. I've been training at coliseum gym, which is a powerlifting gym. I squatted on a iron wolfe squat bar. Man that bar was cool 65 pounds and 8 feet long.

This is a good call. I'd even go so far as to say you may find it more productive to seek calm and focus more than getting pumped up for max attempts and meet day as well. I know I do.

Try releasing them with a lacrosse ball a few times. Or, try the Agile 8 as a warm up.
