Today I broke into the 200's with my bench so that was a mile stone:
My next Milestones are:

Bench 300+, currently 225
Squat 300+, currently 225 (I just fixed my form, I expect some good gains coming)
Deadlift 400+ currently 315
Barbell Press 200+ currently 115

I'm new to Strength Training. I've been doing it for about 3 months. I've had no real expierence until now. I dinked around in the gym a little (a couple weeks at a time every couple years), but nothing serious until now.

Glad to have you logging and good luck. Along for the ride.

Bench Press: 3 r @ 225/ 1 r @ 225/ 3 r @ 205/ 2 r @ 205
Squat: 3 s x 3 r @ 245

The day went bad. I got all the way to the gym and realized I left my work boots at home. I had to go all the way home and get them. I thought maybe I should just do it tomorrow, but I had been looking forward to the gym all weekend. So I went back. I taped my bench press and saw my right arm dipped even with a proper grip width. It dipped whether I was doing the bar, 135, or any other weight. I think this might be a cns problem? I'm going to have to retrain my brain to push that right arm up

Then the day got good. I decided I've been underselling my leg/posterior power. I'm holding back. It's probably because I suffered a lower back injury about 8 years ago. I decided to up my squat by 20 lbs. I nailed it. I'm going to start pushing my comfort level. I think their is more there.

You look like you have a fair amount of potential. Keep listening to your body along the way and keep taking those steps forward when you can.

I changed my routine a little. Not the lifts, just when I did them. I want to devote more of my training time to my primary lifts. So I divided my 2 routines into three. On the days I have to work I'm going to do my primary lifts, and on one of my days off I'll do my support movements. So today I only did close grip bench and dead lifts. I have to change the way I approach these longer sessions. I think I did to much working up and burned myself out. This is how it went:

Deadlift: Bar 10X/ 135 8x/ 225 5x/ 315 3x/ 365 missed/ 335 missed/ 315 missed
I really wanted that 365. I thought I could jump to it.

Close grip bench: Bar 6x/ 135 3x/ 225 2x/ 205 2x/ 205 1x
I was hoping if I cut the warmup sets down I'd do better. But I think I was already fatigued.
