Need to confess a thing here to all the members. I work out in my office gym without any trainer. I train with dummbells only. Plus machines, treadmills, and cross trainer are also there, but no chin ups bar etc. Office gym is a shithole with no barbell, given the convenience, its the best option i have.

I am new to powerlifting. Hence I am here to learn. Technique, diet, workouts anything. I want to keep the learning time as low as possible. I am 30 already and have a family to take care of.

I started as a bodybuilder a few years ago, did it for 2 good years, but lost a lot of weight as i quit to do masters and all that shit. But now I m back. I somehow lost interest in bodybuilding due to its exhibitionist nature. Powerlifting is more challenging and thats something i have started to love.

I currently

Bench with 35 lbs x2 dumbbells 5 reps
Squat with 40 lbs x2 dumbbells 5 reps
deadlift with 45 lbs x2 dumbbells 5 reps

Till now, I have added weights as I exceed 5 reps.

Thanks to all of you for concern and do not hesitate to correct me.
