Vids are up and will be posted daily!
I know this isn't that strong for a lot of you but this is my goal for the next six months...(hopefully sooner)
Ive been lifting for a while but just started powerlifting the last few months
Im 24 years old 6'1 173 lbs as of today and my stats are as follows:
Dead: 390 (PR'ed today actually by 20 pounds)
So a current total of : 865
Only equipment is a titan 13 mm belt which i used for the first time today. Wish me luck and ill keep this updated with new prs in each lift. May not be that interesting but its kinda just a log for myself to keep dated progress. Also i want to try and get some videos up so i can get my form critiqued, because im hoping that will help alot.

Good luck with your goal. I have never hit the 1000lb mark yet either. What routine are you using?
Not really using any routine as of yet. I do one lift each day (either bench squat or deadlift) plus one back day a week. I usually work out about 4-5 days a week. And i usually work my way up to a one rep each day with a couple of reps or singles till i cant do more weight. So for example today i deadlifted i did
hip indubctor, abductor
Good Luck! It seems like the only thing really holding you back and will be the easiest to get up is your squat. What does a current squat day look like for you
Good luck with your goal. I'm also shooting for 1,000 lbs by the end of the year. I've got a little further to go than you do though

Last squat day was like this
Benched today then did a little back work
For your main movement are you just working up to a 1rm every workout? One more thing to add, I'd probably put in two set in between 100 to 140 and 140 to 190. You really don't want to make 20 percent jumps like that. I'd stick with 10-12.5 % jumps of your 1RM for now.
My Road to-Success
Bench Day Today
Nice, our bench is exactly the same now. You might want to look into a routine to help you with your goal and keep you from burning out going heavy every workout. Have you checked out Wendlers 5/3/1 method?
Today was deadlift day i was lifting off 1 and half inch pads.
Then off 4 inch blocks
(First time using blocks, so it felt a little weird)
Then 1 set of deficits with 275 (conventional)
Day off today but i went out and bought wood blocks for deadlfiting. Tomorrow is squat day, but im planning drinking tonight so i dont expect much out of tomorrow.
Ended up squatting today instead went like this
squat video from today with new pr
Not bad at all for a max attempt. Maybe try to take a big gulp of air to help stay tight. Congrats on the PR.
Then some tri work and dips
Ordered these online today
4 inch blocks
100x10 DB shrugs
Vid from today's Deadlift routine forgot to record the 320x6 off the floor but here is the block pulls, music is what i listen to when i lift to get psyched up, not because i think im hardcore. Critique is welcome!
Worked on Back then grip today
10 Second Holds with
Rack Pulls with super thick bar
135x1 with 15 second hold
