Nice progress, keep on trucking.
You have some rather good numbers yourself!
I think Fazc was right on about the potential of the average guy being able to hit a 500 squat, 350 bench and 550 DL. My gyms bests are ~355 squat, 250 bench and 405 DL. This year will be recapturing those numbers...next year will be setting new PRs!
I have my own DBs but was just getting into a groove for the light workout. The heavy workouts are outdoors in the garage since most gyms don't have the equipment I need. Let's see if the DBs appear by next Tuesday.
You're right, a good warm up really makes a difference. First time I only did goblet squats (with a press). This time I added a light BB squat set and it made all the difference.
Thanks for the encouragement!
