Thanks BtB. I am committed to becoming viable as a powerlifter, so squats and bench are important to me, but they could stall for a year and as long as my deadlift kept moving I would be ok.

Trying to decide on my ideal weight class and lift totals. I know I want to get a 600 pound deadlift in the 242 class, but if I'm going to compete and really start to add muscle I should probably shoot for the 275ish range. I'm mostly interested in competing raw and drug free, so I'm not as familiar as I should be with achievable numbers.

You don't even need to use the code. Just post the link in a thread and it auto-embeds.

Quick session today. Shoulder held out pretty well on squats but opted out of extra work after the main sets as it was getting tender. Videos are being uploaded, but squats are looking better than before.

Squat
45x10/10
95x5
135x5
205x3
225x3
235x3

Front Squat
95x5

RDL
135xsome number
225x5
275x3
295x3 - would call it a PR, but i'm not really sure where my strength is on these currently. No PRs till i figure out what my limit really is.

Leg Extension/Leg Curl machine circuit
115x10x3

Elbow wasnt impressed with me today, full extension was incredibly painful, but bench day went well anyway.

Bench
45xlots
95x5
135x5
175x3
185x3
200x3
215xmiss - see notes

Decline - 215x1 - too easy

Pendlay Row
135x5x3

Cable Row
70x10x3 - felt way heavier than 70 pounds not convinced their labels are correct

Notes - pretty pissed about bench today. The padding on the benches is non-existent and the surface is slicker than my non-stick pans. Tried to give a little leg drive on 215 and slide back 3 inches, which ruined my press. Think I have a good 15 extra pounds in me if I could dig my traps into something.

Epic win for deadlift day.

Tried to warm up on a treadmill today, but was too pumped going into the gym to stay on it for more than 45 seconds. Really wanted to tear some weight off the ground.

Deadlift
135xsome number
225x5
335x3
355x3
375x3 - Planned progression
225x8x5

Decline Crunch
BWx10x3

Farmer's Carry
90# per hand x2 trips around the dumbbell area/1.5 trips

KB snatches
40x5x5

Notes:
375 felt heavy, but not daunting. Really enjoyed today's session.

BW crunches are difficult, but I can deadlift 415. Looks like I need more ab work

Farmers walk is my new thing I think. Its all in the head. I failed on strength of will, not strength of body. I like it.

There is no room in my gym for creativity. I ask about dragging 45# plates on the astro turf and they say No. How about chalk? Nope. A tire outside? No. Chains/bands? Negative. I need a real place to train, so I think I'm going to have to make one out of my place. Time to buckle down and make my own sled instead of just dreaming about it.

Strong deadlifts, Brute.

Definitely get out of that place you call a gym. Some plates, rack/stand and bunch of heavy things that beg to be lifted and dragged. All the cool kids are doing it.
