Well I am 16 years old and I am in a powerlifting program at school. I lift with my friend who is alos 16 and we both weigh about 230-235 pounds. I do about the same weight as him in the bench, deadlift, and squat. So we are on the 2nd part of our 3 part program. Today was deadlift and the reps were 10 8 6 3 3 1 8. This works quite while as we can see each week if we are going up based on our 1 rep max, but anyway back to my point. The past 4 weeks I have steadily been climbing 10 pounds a weeks which brings my 1 rep up to 390 pound deadlift(I know it sucks, but I am working at it) But anyway all of a sudden today my friend is attempting 370 for his max, he brings it up with no problem. So I tell him to go for 405. So he does and brings that up no problem. So I say go for 425, he does and still it did not seem hard for him at all, but he decided to stop.( I don't know why, he was doing so good.)
But my point is how is this even possible??? He just barely managed to get 370 up a week before and now he is doing 425 with considerable ease??? I have never heard of such gains? Is this just a fluke? Mabye something he ate? Also this is definatly not nooby gains because we have been on this program for about 8 weeks. Can somebody explain this to me???
