Hi. I've been lifting since my freshman year of college and my progress has been alright considering a few things. Enough excuses though, here are my stats-

Best Bench 225x3
Best Squat 315x3
Best Dead 425x5

All done with awful, reckless technique at a hefty bodyweight of 165.

Split-
Mon/Heavy bench/Upperback
Wed/Squat/Dead

Progress is good, but if your progressing and your technique still sucks, thats not so good. Get someone to film your ****ing squat form, and that will fix a lot of things

So, key things to take away from this

1) Stop bitching
2) Get film of your squat sets

Alright I've been busy with class and havent really been on online all that much(distracting). I still went to the gym and the past week. Here's today's workout, no video, i tried to get my buddies camera but he was using it for something at the time. Either way i sorted some **** out

Squats
295x3x3 PR

Deads
(work sets)
405x1
455x1
475xm

We used the skinny bar for squats and keeping my elbows forward kept me upright. I think i've beaten the psycological aspect of this and am set to to put weight on the bar. Either way I WILL HAVE A VIDEO NEXT WEEK with 305
