Hey fellas, wanted to post up a few questions.
I've been doing SS for awhile now, and throwing in a little extra work afterwards, just a few rows/curls and some chins.
I really just wanted to see if you guys think my numbers look about right?
I'm currently benching 160 as my working set, which I can knock out fine but 165 is still making me fail on the first or second set.
I'm squatting 215, which I'm gonna stay at for a session of two as last time the last rep was very hard and I took a step forward after I stood up (my ass came up faster than my chest). I was squatting more but when I read SS Mark said DO NOT accept anything lower than rock bottom/parallel so that took my squat weight down A LOT when I started squatting real low. So now I'm back up to 215 and feeling pretty good about it.
I'm deadlifting 265, my grip fails after 2 reps and I have to regrip.
Should I lower the weight if I need to regrip and can't complete all 5 without adjusting my grip?
Also, do these numbers seem about right? The deads I feel like I could easily do 20-30 more lbs without a problem (except the grip issue) but squats are toasting me at the 215.
I really want to improve on my bench but I when I started working out 4 months ago my bench was about 125 (working set) so I've already added 35 lbs to my working bench so I know it's moving in the right direction.
Thanks for any help/advice and sorry if any of this is answered in stickies.
Also, i'm about 5'9" 190lbs.
