Can i please have my DL and Bench upped please?
175+ Bench and 250 DL (Staps)
250kg deads?!! Dammit...
Will have to update spreadsheet when I get home.
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
First day back yesterday, may actually be able to keep at it for more than three months this time
Heheeeeeeee, beat that!!!
EDIT: BW is about 83kg I think
Indeed, getting higher than 40th is gonna be a serious struggle for me
Nice lifting mate
Although I'm going to have that deadlift without straps when my back is back to 100%
2nd in the league and in Wilks! Nice work mate
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.
Have a new PB for my bench whcih im dead happy about ...Not a touch on you guys but early days yet.
Delvis: 50kg / 50kg / 50kg ----- [83kg BW] ----- 150KG
EDIT: I seem to be stuck at 50........
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).
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.
Hmm....How do you do them out nof interest? As there are different grips from what I can see
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!
Pin your shoulders back a bit though or?
