Deadlift: 352lb Squat: 286lb Bench: 198 lb... Where would this place me on experience, am I almost past the noob stage? How do these compare to you guys? Anyway, this past weekend I got a new dl max of 352lb, it felt fucking awesome... I go to a gym where deadlifts aren't frowned upon, but because they don't work the beach muscles, they aren't popular. There were people staring at me as if though I were crazy (I know that weight doesn't really stack up against your numbers, but 90% of these peoples muscle mass is on their chest and biceps). Anyway, I felt I could have lifted more, but my grip was failing at the end of my last rep. I don't wear gloves, or use chalk etc, should I? And how else can I improve my grip to hit even bigger numbers? Also, should there be such a large gap between my squat (A2G) and deadlift numbers? It seems to me my deadlift is going up and up, but my squat is staying put (along with my shitty bench)... Any ideas? All help is appreciated!
