I figured I would finally start posting around here, and what better way than to start a log to keep track of my training.
First, some background:
I'm 23 - been powerlifting for about 18 months. Working out consistently(and intelligently) for about 2.5 years, and doing the typical bench/curl crap before that since highschool. Ive competed at 82.5kg, currently making the jump to 90kg, as Ive had to cut weight for each contest.
Currently jumping on the 5/3/1 train. I based the workout on the following maxes(actual maxes):
Bench: 300 (315)
Squat (belt): 445 (455)
Deadlift (raw/conv): 450 - havent maxed conventional in a long time. Ive pulled 540+ sumo.
Training so far, only the final sets:
Bench: 225 x 9 (I messed up the numbers, so I had to guess as to the weight, which ended up being too light)
Dead: 385 x 7
Military: 155 x 6
Squat: 385 x 5
Bench: 260 x 6
Dead: 405 x 5
Military: 165 x 4
Squat: 385 x 5
Bench: 275 x 4
Solid lifting man! Are you a classical scholar?
I assume you are referring to my name/possibly the name of my log. No I am not a classical scholar. That is actually my name, and I figured I should include a solid quote from my namesake
Best of luck in you lifting man!

Wave 3 DL - 435 x 3
Supposed to be ~425, but 435 was easier to load, so went with that.
