    i am weak

    my upper body is strong, but my big lifts ( deadlift and squat are so weak)

    heres my stats :

    incline dumbell press : 115x3
    shoulder dumbell press : 95x3

    squat : 225x4
    deadlift : 295x3

    i am pretty tall, 6'3. when i deadlift, i feel like i'm putting a lot of stress on my lower back.

    Guess what? Deadlifts put a lot of stress on your lower back.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John

    Nobody is Superman when they first start working out. Give it time and your strength will increase.
