    i'm doing a modified 5x5, currently, and here are my #'s for my final set

    squat 225x5
    bench 225x5
    deads 321x5

    for squats, in order to get consistent depth, i squatted down til my ass/hams hit a 13" high milk crate, then back up. i dont have a mirror so i had to judge my form and depth based on the crate. :dunno:

    maybe i'll take a video WHEN IT STOPS SNOWING!!!!!!!!!11 :rofl: :rant2:

    so, yes, i know my squats need to go up.

    in relation to numbers, if i set my goals for deadlift to 405, whereabouts should i set my squat and bench #'s?

    I'm thinking 275x5 bench, 315x5 squat, and 405x5 deads should be 'even' / proportional?

    i'm probably overthinking it, like i do everything when i get started again.

    :werd: just keep at it, let them progress as they will...when a lift plateaus, worry about it then and switch things up

    yeah man i was always guilty of doing that, especially with 5x5ing...always have lofty goals set and everytime i didn't hit them by a certain time i'm get pissed off and frustrated - it's just better to go in, work hard and just try to make sure that you're consistently improving :)

    filming the lifts is always a great idea though for feedback - why don't you start up a log in Tlogs?
