Talking A new personal best

Before I tested my max 1 year ago and it was about 405. Today I maxed out on squat at 440 lbs. :cool: this was not A2G, this was thighs parallel with the floor, and I mean the middle to top of my thigh.

Next I'm finding my deadlift max. This I don't know at all. I've only done 225 for sets of 10 without straps so I donít know what my potential even comes close to. More to come.

Dude, that's great! Really, if finding maxes are your "bag" (Austin Powers ) then I'd submit you try Bill Starr's 5x5. By the middle of the intensity phase, you'll be smoking that squatting record as well as putting up serious numbers in every other category.

Matter of fact, just fyi....I'm starting up another cycle of B.S. 5x5 on Wednesday. I'm very much not looking forward to all that hard work!

*edit* Way to kick some f*cking ass!

thanks, guys. maxes are not really my thing, My room-mate does Westside lifting and he was doing max effort squat last night so I figured I'd jump in to see where I am to start a 5x5 this Jan. Also I will be doing a journal. so more lifts to come.

Be careful finding your max...

I managed to reinjure an old back tear (with nerve nexus complication) about 2 weeks ago.

Just beginning to get back into workouts again.

You can bet your sweet ass I'll be a lot more careful about forum when I test my limits next time.

Not worth it...better to work your way up, as suggested, in 5 x 5s and calculate your max.

Back to scratch (much lower resistance mass) on my deads.

Hopefully my squat performance isn't too badly affected...we'll see.

Why to go man. It always a rush when you hit a new max.
