Honestly though I think I could 1RM 405
My knee would just kill me
What's the criteria for it? I'm hoping to 3x5 405 by end of the semester.
I think I could probably 1 rep it already too or pretty soon here.
Either way, You're all on. First unofficial IE mine's better than yours lifting competition is a go.
Might as well go for the triple. Bench, squat, and deadlift. See who can get the highest weight 😎
Actually, that'd be a cool little competition for everyone in the fitness server
Get some weight brackets in
I'd say we'd probably have to have it filmed in some manner as well
Maybe wonder gets a free tank top
Gimme a second I'll find the video
Haha is that me grunting for Bryce at the end?
But I've been working on my pull ups so I'll be ready to redeem myself
How much do you guys weigh
I do at least
Nice man great lifts for that weight. Im 170-175 too
Im doing 5x5 pretty much. How much would you recommend to move up in weight each week
Like 10 lbs?
That's what I do, anyways
I'm 180 atm and if I'm doing my linear progression I try for 10 lbs every lifting session til stall, then drop down by a certain percentage and build back up/repeat.
Im about 245-250, i mostly work in the 1-3 reps per set range and my top set increases by about 10lbs per week until I try a new 1rm
Front squatted 365 yesterday weight 162lbs
Also pulled 405 for five off a deficit beltless. Nice to be closer to my 2.5x bw goal on front squats and just fucking around with my friend in the gym was good for a chill recovery(ish) day
@here I'm thinking of getting a home gym by combining a squat rack like this https://www.roguefitness.com/sml-1-rogue-70-monster-lite-squat-stand?prod_id=48369&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIrqKGm7iU2gIVxEwNCh3TcwmeEAQYAiABEgKuVPD_BwE and some sort of deadlift platform and bumper plates. My main concern is that this will all sit on wood floors in an apartment I rent, so I want to minimize any wear and tear to the apartment. All the things I'm looking at are freestanding, but I know the base of squat rack will be pressing into the floor. Any tips on how to minimize possible damage? Would a rug be enough? Should I get some rubber pads to put underneath the squat rack base? I'd appreciate any insights or experience people have with this.
Why risk bringing all that into an apartment when you can get a cheap gym membership?
Serious question, not trying to be an ass.
I'd say at the very minimum you would need that thick rubber material that most gyms put over the cement floor, and then in addition to that you would have the wood platform on top.
You could get away with a bench press setup with an apartment obviously but I wouldn't deadlift that's for sure.
@BryceB-ND Thanks a lot for the feedback. I'm thinking about a homegym setup because my work schedule makes it difficult to get to the gym or get the full workout I want over the work week.
True. Sometimes the motivation with parking and traffic is enough to make one skip a workout.
Would be awesome to have that home setup, to me the risk seems to outweigh the postive.
