    Just noticed I started my log just over a year ago, so I went through and read it.

    As of 6/20/05

    Squat: 455
    Bench: 385x1 off a 3-board
    Dead: ~365

    The beginning of last summer concluded the laziest period of time in my life, I stopped playing football at the beginning of spring s and just kinda hung out, got drunk way too many times, and fucked around in the gym. Previous bests of 405 raw bench and 470 A2G squat were no where to be found. I've been seriously PL training for a few months now - think I started in around november.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    now keep in mind, aside from a few breaks, strength gaining was my only concern. I'm actually pretty suprised how much muscle ive put on since last year. before pic spring breakish last year (looked the same when i got home) and current was like a month ago.

    Current Lifts:
    Squat is sitting right around 600 Raw
    Bench is ??? full range, but around 405x5 off a 3 board
    Dead is sitting at 600 Raw


    So
    455 -> 600
    385 -> 405x5
    385 -> 600

    Weight:
    I was about 29X in that first picture, lots of steak bombs and bud heavies
    Now I sit around 280 and compete at 275, though I'll be about 265-270 by the end of the summer b/c I never want to cut water ever again.


    This summer is gonna be really good for me - dragging the sled in the morning and eating clean 98% of the time is always a good thing - I've noticed changes already
