    Decent session tonight.

    Deadlifts:

    180 x 5

    Okay.

    Barbell rows:

    110 x 5/5/5

    A bit hard.

    Then home.

    This thread is awesome!

    Is anyone else here a powerlifter?

    I have been lifting a year, and properly powerlifting for a few months.

    I tested all my maxes for Squat, Bench and Deadlift.

    I got 155kg, 97.5kg and 200kg.

    My short term goals are to get my Squat to 160kg, 100kg Paused Bench and 220kg Deadlift.

    My long term goals are to get my squat to 180kg, 120kg paused bench, and a 240kg deadlift.

    I know, my bench is my weakest lift out of the three... It's because I have ridiculously long arms meaning my ROM is really large ahaha.

    So my numbers are looking okay for entering my first meet in the new year.

    My current bodyweight is 82kg, and I am 6'2".

    I also do freerunning/gymnastics

    A quick one tonight. Wasn't feeling up to much.

    Squats:

    125 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Incline dumbbell bench press:

    30s x 10/10/10

    Okay.

    Lat pull downs:

    79 x 10/6/2

    What happened was I tried to do chins but that just wasn't happening, so did lat pull downs instead. First set went okay, but pecs fatigued, and couldn't really do much more - hence the rapid drop off.

    Then home.

    Yeah, and at your age I am sure you will manage to increase your numbers quite quickly if you train hard and appropriately - and eat well too. And I can definitely agree about long arms and the bench - good luck.

    Not a good session tonight. Wasn't feeling up to much (kinda low morale) and back feeling awkward again.

    Squats:

    165 x 5/1

    First set really difficult, took a lot out of me, didn't have any more after the first rep of the second set.

    Press:

    76 x 1
    60 x 5/5/5

    76 too heavy tonight so did a bit of work with 60, which was okay.

    Did some lacrosse ball work then home.

    Actually had a decent session tonight. Back feeling the same.

    Deadlifts:

    185 x 5

    Not too bad. My thumb was bleeding, though, which is unusual for me.

    Barbell rows:

    100 x 8/8/8

    Not too bad again.

    Seated dumbbell overhead press:

    27.5s x 10/10/10

    A bit harder.

    Then home.

    Tonight was really bad; just wasn't feeling it. Tried to squat, up to 125 for a couple of reps, but just wasn't feeling right. Was inside the rack, and it now seems that that puts me off. Couldn't get the form right and knee didn't like the form I was using. Then tried to chin but couldn't really; just never had much upper body strength.

    Tonight was also a disaster. Tried to squat and bench. Both times the weight felt light enough, but when I was actually pushing, I felt a bit sick. My 150 warm up on the squat wasn't bad, but I only got 1 rep of 165 (which was also poor form). 80 on the bench was fast enough but couldn't really push for the aforementioned reason.

    Tonight was also pretty bad.

    Press:

    76 x 4/4/2
    60 x 5

    Kinda disappointed. Equalling (I think) my PB of 76 x 5/5/5 was perhaps a little ambitious...

    Deadlifts:

    190 x 2/0

    Really disappointed with this, especially after last week, and my last warm up (160) was also pretty easy. Like, I felt I couldn't get into a tight enough position and the weight just felt really heavy.

    Going to have to think of a plan or something...

    Then home.
