Default 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

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.

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

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.
