    idk what the condition is called but my knees keep moving inward kinda. I used to do 5x5 stronglifts , got my squat to almost 70 in about 5 months. Recently started a 4 day split

    Not bad. That's ~470 total. That more than enough for 74 kg junior qualifying total for nationals?

    Yeah but probably won't compete in nationals this year will probably save it for next year.
    Hoping for 200-110-222.5 total by the end of the year so next years numbers will be a lot more competitive.

    I do standard 531 then heavy singles depending on how I feel (I can usually tell if Im feeling strong from the 531 sets and warm up if I feel like crap Ill just leave it)

    then either 5 x 5 at slightly higher weight or 5 x10 at slightly lower weight depending on how I'm feeling (Will be doing 5x5 consistently now as I get more out of it and will help me measure my progress better if I just stick to one).

    Then superseded accessories for 5x10

    Pretty much the same for deadlifts.

    I bench twice a week and got my friend to program my bench for me.

    Do you have any idea what's going on with this university championships. It was suppose to be in feb but now in march and what requirements you need to compete in it. So poorly organised it's unbelievable.
