View Full Version : My 300lbs squat virginity was ripped from me today

05-15-2008, 12:50 PM
I walked away sore and tired. I couldn't even walk after :P

I wasn't in the mood for the usual 3x5 so I decided to set my one rep max.


Here's my journal.

It was freakin gut wrenching. This was raw, no belt.

I also went for 405 deadlift last time and got 80% up but couldnt lock it out.

Ladies in gentlemen, I can feel my long term goal closing in. 315 squat with a belt will be mine, 405 deadlift is within arms reach... 225 bench will be tough but I'll make it through.

Hell ya man. That's an awesome feeling. 315 will come in no time!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if you walked in next week, put on a belt, and hit the 3 plates. Good work.

Congrats, man. I just broke the 300lbs mark yesterday. It's a good feeling.

I agree with this. Adding a belt and really pushing your abs into it should help you get to that in your next squat session imo, if not even more than your goal. Nice work!

Congratulations, good luck with 315.

Good job, I just hit 405 this past Friday. I was pumped about having 4 plates on each side. You'll get 315 in no time.
