I am training for my first full powerlifting meet in October. Here is what I am working with:
Current squat: 415 (belt)
Current bench: 350 (raw)
Current deadlift: 495 (raw)
looking to compete at 220
I just gained 2 lifting partners who are stronger than me. I jumped in with them on Dave Tate's DE/ME type program. I have been training for 3 weeks now to be a better lifter, shifting my focus from doing whatever the hell I feel like to following a program. It will be documented here.
Yesterday was ME squat day:
455x0 (belt, knee wraps) miss, did not hit depth
455x0 same as above, about three inches too high, leaned forward a bit and drove it up
I felt the leg strength was there at 455, 1st time using wraps. I am looking for tips on hitting depth with wraps, not leaning forward like a good morning when I sit back with weight. I know, get stronger...
Tomorrow, DE bench
