Max Day
 
Max Day at the gym today to get my 1RM for all of my main lifts. The only problem was, it wasn't a very good day in the gym. I don't think I ate very well today and it effected my lifts :(. But I am going to use them anyway because I know it was pretty close to what my 1RM would be on a good day.

Bench
225

Deads
375

Military Press
135

Squats
300

I was really struggling with 225 today even though I got it easily last week. I got 315 like butter on deads, but I couldn't get 405. 375 was a good weight for me. I just started doing military press so I'm happy with 135. I definitely got past parallel on squats. I slowly went down until my spotter told me I got it. I had to get a little help with 315 and failed the second time, so I didn't count it. I'm really looking forward to starting this program to see where it takes my numbers.

P.S. I guess I'm in the 900 club.

Good luck with this. I think the BBB template is a good one to start. I did it for a while and it was definitely harder than I expected at the time.

good luck man looks solid. i believe on deadlift day he recommends doing 5x8 at 50% after the main lift idk why it's not 5x10 but just sayin. maybe cause deadlifts are more taxing :confused:

but good luck and make sure to use 90% of your max when calculating the numbers and hit it hard!

That makes sense, I'll do that. I can't wait to SFW. I wonder how long it will take to join the 1000 lb club.

Not sure why you didn't get my pm, but I'll send you another one when I'm not on my phone.

Don't sweat it. You'll be rocking PRs soon enough on Wendlers and destroying those numbers. :arnold:

Thanks BTB, I was more frustrated with my bench than anything else. I felt I should have gotten at least 240.

Getting below your true max on those lifts is actually a good thing to begin the program since Wendler is a big proponent of starting your weights too low.
