I really want to hit 300 lbs on my deadlift, and squat (not 1rm max, but working sets) by the end of the year.
Good luck hombre. Smash it.

The 3x3 Program

Good luck.
I have been reading up on the 3x3 routine, and I think I am going to go with it once I finish my current plan. I really like the powerbuilding routines, but I want to focus on my big three to complete my goals for the end of this year.
On a side note I have been looking at the classes for powerlifting competitions. I want to at least get into a catagory, and maybe compete.

Big thanks to themaster2981. After talking to him, I bought a belt the other day and got to use it today for my deadlift session. I was amazed at how easy it was to pull the bar. I was stuck at 255x3 for 3, 2, 1. Thought I was at a plateau, but I hit my rep ceiling, and am ready to drop another 10 on the bar. Looks like I am on track for hitting my goals.

I've missed a workout a week lately so I have only hit the gym twice a week for the last 3 weeks. My progress is still moving along nicely.

DL - 265 - two sets for two reps, missed the third set. I think I am spending too much energy warming up. I should start higher than 135

Bench - 145 - just hit my rep ceiling tonight so I bumping it up next session

Squat - 215 - Also hit my rep ceiling and want to bump up ten pounds, but I have struggled getting my squat numbers up, so I may only go five.

I don't think i will be dissapointed if I don't reach my goals at the end of the year. My numbers were moving so rapidly I was sure I could smash them. I just gotta put more time in and watch my nutrition a little closer.
A little concerned that I may not be getting good sleep. I need to post a question to the forum and get some feedback.

Numbers are good, Begota.

I like training 3 times a week per my program. I would like to do 4 just because lifting is therapeutic to me.
