235 was fast and easy, definitely had more in me. 240 was there for sure, perhaps even 245.
220 X 3 was surprisingly easy. Was originally planning 220 for a double, 190 was my previous double best, so wasn't sure what to expect, first two reps were fast and easy, third one flew off the ground and then slowed near lock out, was clean but tough.
180 was tough, ok up to about 6 reps then locking it out became hard work, 8th rep only just got locked out.

Gains.

Pretty sore, get a sharp pain in my right knee cap when nearing the bottom position of a bodyweight squat, although it seems to be ok if I take a really wide stance and sit back into it. Plus it gets really stiff if I'm sitting down for a while, lots of popping and clicking if I repeatedly straighten/bend my leg. Not really sure what is wrong with it :dontknow:. Plan is to take another 3 weeks off squatting and then re evaluate.

Deadlift [beltless]
60kg X 3, 3, 3
100kg X 3
120kg X 3, 1
140kg X 1
160kg X 1
180kg X 1
200kg X 1
220kg X 1
240kg X 1 (1RM PB)
225kg X 3 (3RM PB)
180kg X 10 (Rep PB)


240kg felt smooth and fairly easy, definitely more there. The guys I deadlift with said it looked real easy and much smoother than my 235kg last week, so that's a good sign.

225kg was a grind. Slightly misjudged the timing of the first rep when rolling the bar which made it a little harder than it needed to be.

180kg was easy. I reckon there was an extra 1-2 semi grindy reps in me. Weight definitely needs upping, want to keep the rep set to 8 maximum, 10 is just ridiculous.

Feeling better actually. If I take a wide stance I can squat without any discomfort in my knee, even without warming up/mobility work. A narrow/regular stance I get pain in my knee cap, although that's just because I sit over my knees with a narrow stance, I can't get them out of the way with a regular stance (for whatever reason) which I think is what caused the knee troubles in the first place tbh.

I'm going to take this coming week off and then start squatting again the week after. A few really light easy sessions just to see how it feels and ease back into things and then take it from there. Plan is to use a really wide stance from now on and go full low bar, so that should help.

Pretty much

The plan is to add 5kg a week to my 1 and 3 rep max until I stall, then I'll re-evaluate. Hoping to hit 6plates this month

You're legitimately benching more than most of the fitness section squat

Beltless deadlift -
60kg X 3, 3
100kg X 1, 1
120kg X 1
140kg X 1
160kg X 1
180kg X 1
200kg X 1
225kg X 1
245kg X 1 (PB)
140kg X 3, 3, 3 [speed work]

245 was slower off the floor than I would have liked, 200 and 225 were slow too, lockout was solid though and held it for a good few seconds. I think it's just down to being tired from benching so much yesterday and only getting a few hours sleep last night. Going to have the Thursday and Friday off before deadlifting next Saturday so that I'm fresh and have more speed/explosiveness, expecting to hit 250 next week easily.
