A little backround- 5'10" 185 lbs 26 years old Maxes- Bench 275x5 Squats-450x3(with knee wraps) Front Squat-255x5(3 sets) Deadlift-500 Push Press 195x5 Never excelled in sports in high school, but was always strong for my size. Been working full time since I graduated HS, mainly manual labor type stuff, always like moving around, love physicality of life. Tried different things since HS, boxing, mma, recreational sports, but joined crossfit about year and a half ago. One of the coaches got me into powerlifting, been in love ever since. I love the grind. Ran Texas Method last year from August-September, it was a 6 week thing, then decided to jump right in to a smolov squat cycle that ended on January 1st. Got my squat up to 405, but I balloned up to 217. Over the course of the year I've dropped a lot of weight, about 32 pounds, and all my lifts except bench have gone up. Recently dieted down for a fitness comp I decided to not take part in, but feeling good about my body composition. Lost a little on my lifts though. *Goals Get my diet in check(more veggies) Bury 550+ on squat by end of next year. 350+ Front Squat by July 600+ Deadlift by end of next year 340-350 bench by July of next year 250x3 Pushpress by end of next year If I get a chance to work on any olympic lifts that will be a bonus Planning on staying between 185-190lbs.
