Returning to the iron game after a year's or so hiatus. Current stats: 5'10, 185 lbs, not sure what my best lifts are after being out of it for so long.
Goal is pure and simple: bulk to 200 in about 6 month's time.
Due to work and family demands, the only equipment I've been able to secure is a 7' olympic barbell with 300 lbs worth of plates, and a dip/chin station. They're set up in my garage along with a carpet and a pair of sawhorses to facilitate loading the barbell.
Fooling around a bit, I've found I'm able to do about 250 lbs for 3-4 reps in the deadlift, can work about 9-10 pull-ups, 3x10 at bodyweight for dips, and 100 lbs for 10 reps in the overhead press.
I'm aware that it would be better if I could squat; however, there is simply no room in the budget, or the garage (due to New England weather we have to keep our cars inside) for a squat rack. Doing some reading, I'm told the deadlift is an ok substitute, and my leverages seem to be better suited to it anyway.
At the moment I'm not exactly sure how to set up a training regimen. I've played around a bit, centering things on the deadlift and press. If anyone has any ideas/hints/suggestions on setting up a routine with such limited equipment, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
