    Seriously impressive numbers going on! I have my work cut out!

    Haven't posted in this thread in ages due to it being depressing while I was dieting, but now my strength is coming back I thought I'd see how far I'd slipped down the charts and what I need to get back up

    Wow - Solid lifts!

    I think it might time to start attacking my squats. First time I've started going this heavy in a year. Althought I've been squatting 3 times a week, my figures have been maxing up to 140KG.

    Can I play? I don't back squat or regular deadlift but here's mine:

    sumo deadlift: 148kg x 1 (straps)
    front squat: 75kg x 3 (only just started this so it should go up soon)
    bench press: 85kg x 1 (lame and not going anywhere anytime soon cos my shoulder is screwed).

    BW: 99kg

    How did you make 148kg?! ;)

    Good lifts, and your bench isn't bad when compared to the other two. Why sumo, out of interest?

    sorry I don't get the first bit, but I'm probably being dim!

    I'm quite tall with a history of lower back problems and never really got on with regular deads so switched to sumo. Within a couple of months I'd surpassed my best regular deadlift (which had not really improved for quite a while) so I think this is the way to go for me.

    Similar reason for switching to front squats really. I was squatting 125kg (smith) but it was giving my lower back some grief so changed to front squats. It's seems to put less stress on my lower back but I won't really know until I get the weight up.

    It's just an odd number :) I can't make that with the plates in my gym...

    Fair enough reasons, although squatting in a smith is horrible either way surely?

    Oh I get you now. I have a 6' olympic bar which I was told is 18kg when I bought it. Never actually weighed it though.

    Yeah, smith wasn't ideal so I brought my cellar gym back to life. Got a squat rack in there but I still wasn't getting on with back squatting so I'm giving front squats a go.

    I like them but haven't decided on best grip to use yet. I've only been doing them a few weeks.

    I don't even like the look of front squats, they scare me!

    I actually found them much more easier and comfortable over the conventional way, but I'm odd that way.

    Important part for me when doing them is to create a shelf of your front delts. Really lift your arms up high and you front delts will come forwards a little bit, providing a nice shelf for the bar to lift across. Then you just squat! :)
