I like it, I think you will need to add auxiliary lifts as you continue to develop. I think this is a solid plan for starting though. Wish you luck on your journey, and will be checking in on you!

Overall I think it looks solid. How do you determine when to add weight?

Need to confess a thing here to all the members. I work out in my office gym without any trainer. I train with dummbells only. Plus machines, treadmills, and cross trainer are also there, but no chin ups bar etc. Office gym is a shithole with no barbell, given the convenience, its the best option i have.

I am new to powerlifting. Hence I am here to learn. Technique, diet, workouts anything. I want to keep the learning time as low as possible. I am 30 already and have a family to take care of.

I started as a bodybuilder a few years ago, did it for 2 good years, but lost a lot of weight as i quit to do masters and all that shit. But now I m back. I somehow lost interest in bodybuilding due to its exhibitionist nature. Powerlifting is more challenging and thats something i have started to love.

I currently

Bench with 35 lbs x2 dumbbells 5 reps
Squat with 40 lbs x2 dumbbells 5 reps
deadlift with 45 lbs x2 dumbbells 5 reps

Till now, I have added weights as I exceed 5 reps.

Thanks to all of you for concern and do not hesitate to correct me.

That's ok. Hard work and dedication will pay off. Do what you can.

This is the path I have taken.

My only advice is to continue to push yourself each workout, safely, and will good form. the strength will come.

Sorry to hear you didn't like being on stage, but its not for everyone.

I'll follow anyways. lol ;)

some auxiliary work I was referring to above.

Triceps movements: Skull crushers, donkey kickbacks, Tate press
Bicep: any variation of curl you like
Hamstring: you could do stiff leg deads

Guys feel free to chime in, I am trying to come up with things he can hit with his limited resources. We know he has dumbbells, so these things came to mind!
