I came very close to nailing it today, I know alot of you are going 'why not 315??', 308 is 3 wheels per side in the lovely Kg form. Next week I will EASILY hit it, as well as a 550+ Rack pull(On DE day).


That will be an 70lbs gain in my Squat in less than 2 1/2 months, but where do I go after I stop to gain? I'm attributing alot of the gain down to form work, so now I need to work on more raw strength and speed. Advice?

When you stop gaining, start looking for your weaknesses and correct them.

Just keep taking the gains and look for change once you plateau

Wow, nice job!

Like Anthony said, work on your weaknesses.

You can have an aneurism thinking through the myriad of possible periodization cycles, templates, and systems, but generally it's all a matter of building your base, pushing the envelope, deloading, and then testing or repeating the cycle. You gotta switch things up a bit from time to time, but, IMHO, that's the key.
