I know my form isn't too great and my back was rounding a bit I had a little trouble getting it off the ground using double overhand so I tested my grip with mixed grip by lifting it slightly and then went for the full lift mixed grip. As I mentioned before, this was tough! waaaaay harder than my 110Kg and it's because of my shite grip! It'll be a while before I add any weight.

Hitting 395x8 for my final set of deadlifts last Friday, was nice to pull a nice set at a decent weight.

Best lift ever?

Bench: 410 (no lift shirt)
Squat: 585 (knees wrapped and lifting belt)

Both at the age of 17 and a bodyweight of 177. Both recognized, official records.

I don`t lift anywhere near that now that I`m 38:

DB Incline bench press: 100`s for 8 (yep, full range. None of that half rep BS)
Decline bench: 285 for 5

Squat: 455 for 5

I`ve always had leg power, even as young as about 13. It was my saving grace as a former Pro BMX racer :-D
Pushing the 100`s:

Great lifts !!

Yesterday was a decent session, pulled 400 x 2 for a couple of sets and squatted 264 prettly easily. Bodyweight has dropped back to 143, so I seem to be readjusting after the meet now.

I dropped the 1RM lifting some years ago, but I have to admit I`m still a little fond of certain accomplishments. This has been the busiest two months of the last 10 years, and the next month won`t be much different with Christmas, my fiance`s birthday on new year`s day, and mine not too far after, but I am starting to think (after reading on this site for several hours last night!) that I might start on a plan to re establish some strength landmarks.

I`d like to once again hit a bench of 315, and a five plate squat. I`ve got two weeks of re-acclimating to do in order to prepare for 1rm stuff again. I`ll probably use a variation of the 5X5 and 5,3,1 programs that I designed myself a couple of years ago for some clients that ended up working very well. I`ve got a dodgy shoulder from a crash in a bmx race a few years ago, so I`ve got to be especially mindful of that. I~ll post up when I officially start toward the goals, and obviously commence bragging once I get there HAHAHA!! :lol: :lol:

5/3/1 is a solid program, I can attest to that. You should start up a training log so we can follow along.

Bench 1x240 lbs PB (had a stupid spotter that had fingers on the bar even though the bar was still moving up - I would have finished it anyway)

I've noticed a couple of people have had trouble with spotters recently, luckily a friend of mine spots me and won't touch the bar unless it looks like I'm in trouble, some people are just too hasty eh. Great lift man :)
