I just hit 365 squat for 2 reps today @ 160lbs bodyweight. Also got 405 lbs deadlift for 3 reps


These are decent but I wanna know who's putting up the biggest numbers

    Pretty impressive for 160lb

    High bar or low bar?

    High bar. Low bar is less comfortable for me.

    Front squats the worst though

    got a bad back so i have to use a modified squat machine

    i love that damn thing.

    im able to hit 405 on the deadlift at 6 times before seeing black sillohuettes and color blips....

    bench could be better, i am still going for size on that so i am still stuck at 220.

    my arms are ugly, too much muscle imbalance due to me focusing on powerlifting mainly this year.

    i really need to do something about that before i step on this years physique stage.

    i'd like to compete in two this year. local and NPC, just gotta renew my NPC card.

    Thanks, Thats the goal.
    Lower back injury prohibits me from shouldering a load
    Have to use the belt system.

    1rm x .85 = strength training.

    Yeah pretty impressive at 160.

    I high bar a little more than that last time I maxed out but I haven't done singles, doubles, or triples in months so I don't know where I'm at currently there. I'm been repping 345 for 6s for the past couple of weeks.....but I fluctuate between 195 and 205 bodyweight so you're probably stronger than me in terms of relative strength. I make gains where I can at this point through 5-8 rep schemes and I ain't forcing it unless I'm just feeling extra on a day.

    Front squats are cool. One thing that helped me was widening my stance and pushing my knees out (with feet tracking my knees). I could stay upright and get deeper to get far more power out of it out of the hole (firing through glutes). I used to front squat like I back squat (narrow stance to put it on my quads), but I found myself leaning forward using upper back too much when it got too heavy. Last time I 1rm fronts was probably 5 months back and it was 295. Besides front squatting, the main thing that helps my front squat is bent over barbell rows (for spinal erectors).

    I'm going to try this next time. I tend to have a narrow stance when I front squat
