Original lifts (May 2007):
Bench - 140 x 12
Squat - 275 x 8 (3/4 parallel)
Deadlift - 235 x 8
Row - 125 x 8
Military Press - 115 x 8


By the end of May 2007, my senioritis kicked in SO much that I actually stopped lifting from then to October. I also just found out I failed one of my classes because of laziness with waking up.


Newest Lifts (Pre-Winter procrastination: October 2007 - November 2007)
Bench - 135 x 5
Squat - 225 x 8 (parallel)
Deadlift - ?
Row - 105 x 5
Military press - 95 x 5



Given that I want to get big again and in better shape by the summer, how long should I look to train for to get at:

Lift Goals:
Bench - 175 x 8
Squat - 295 x 10 (parallel)
Deadlift - 255 x 8
Row - 135 x 10
Military Press - 135 x 5


I am also going to start my lifting journal on here, seeing as I have a composition notebook journal for nutrition by itself. I will post starting pictures soon too.

So I went to my first session since late November, and it went ok, even if I was sore before it. Here are my numbers:

5 minute pyramid running warm up plus stretching

Squat:
two sets of ten reps @ 195 lbs
one set of eight reps @ 205 lbs
one set of six reps @ 215 lbs


Bench:
two sets of eight reps @ 115 lbs
one set of five reps @ 125 lbs
one set of five reps @ 135 lbs

Deadlift:
two sets of eight reps @ 185 lbs
one set of five reps @ 205 lbs

Military Press:
one set of eight reps @ 65 lbs
one set of eight reps @ 75 lbs
one set of eight reps @ 80 lbs

and two sets of eight reps of weighted incline crunches, no clue about the weight of the ball. I didnt do calf raises or barbell curls because I had to rejoin the gym since I was no longer a member, but they let me work out today anyway.
