    I'm not gonna have any personal records for at least another month as I am still on a high rep/low rest cycle.

    I did however survive a pretty brutal gauntlet yesterday

    I was stronger in HS than I am now so it'll be a while until I truly PR

    Although, I suppose I can call increasing my max from the current numbers a PR

    I haven't maxed out in a while, and I try to keep my reps around 8ish,

    anyway, one time I was able to get 135 up 8 times, but other than that I haven't been able to do it as much, and I really haven't gone really heavy on squats and deadlifts, guess I'll have to do that soon


    Soon...

    dead lift = 250

    bench = 225

    DB press = 90lb DBs

    Squats = 215
    Limitations are for people that have them, and excuses are for people that need them.

    Some of my best lifts:

    Chest 470 weighed in at 236
    Chest 475 weighed in at 245

    Squat never maxed out but have done some high rep high weights

    405x20 (death) Also *** to the grass

    Shrug 785

    Nowhere near those numbers now. Those were all raw (no powerlifting gear)

    About 8 years ago-

    Bench
    275 X 3
    295 1RM

    Squat
    275 X 8 Never maxed out

    Shrug
    Same as squat.

    Now-
    225 X 4 (Very sad but I've come back a long way since I started lifting again)

    I don't squat anymore because of bad back and knees.
    But Leg press-
    435 X 12

    That's all I got.

    For those interested in finding out what your 1RM would be, theres a formula that you can use. Our strength coach showed it to us, and we base all of our workout percentages on it.

    Formula....can be done on any amount of weight and reps.

    For every rep performed, it's worth 0.03. So, 10 reps would equal 0.30, 7 reps would be 0.21, 5 reps would be 0.15 and son. To make it easy, and not have to add and subtract after, just add a 1 in front of it. So instead of 0.30 for 10 reps, it would be 1.30.

    # of reps performed in decimal x weight lifted = 1RM

    For example... if you squated 300 pounds for 10 reps, it would look like this.

    300x1.30=390 pounds=1RM of 390 pounds.

    I had a PR last night with shoulder press dumbbells. 95s x 3-4 (last one was spotted). My goal is 100s x 6 by July.

    This is a great formula!
