Another powerlifting fool
Hello all, I've been reading some of the threads around here for a long while and finally decided to make a profile. Some of you may know me from other forums. I've been lifting 3 years but only 2 where more serious and am doing the 5/3/1 for a little more than a year now. Those that know me from forums might know I have an odd sense of humor but mean know harm.

My current maxes are as follows
Bench: 315
Squat: 440
Deadlift: 405(raw) 500+ (straps)

My goal at the moment is to get under 200lbs because I'm carrying too much fat. My lifts might suffer but I feel unhealthy at my current 250lbs.

Long term goal is to bench 400-500, squat more than 600, and deadlift more than 600. I'm one of those rare guys that squats more than I deadlift plus I took pretty naturally to squatting so I think I can do this in 4-5 years.

It's interesting to me, the disparity between what some of us can squat and what some of us can deadlift. You destroy me on squats, but I can pull a freakin' bus. Have you tried sumo pulling? That may let you access some of that quad strength you've got going on.

My deadlift sucks cause I have little pterodactyl arms. It helps my bench, kills my deadlift. I never seemed to feel right during sumo deadlifts but I'm working on dropping my guy so maybe that will change some of my bodies impediments.

Thanx, just learning where all the good threads are. I've been stuck on the Ed Coan thread. Awesome stuff.

If you get bored, go browse the hot fitness model thread. That's a good one!

Sounds like a good one to check out before bed.

Welcome to the forum FBJ. You've got some stout numbers. Good luck on the bodyweight goals.
