When I started lifting two months ago, I jokingly bet my curl-monkey friend that if I could hit 225x1 by the end of March, he'd have to start incorporating squats and deadlifts into his routine. It was a longshot at the time (given that I was doing 105x5 or something). But now, about 3 weeks out, I'm at 180x4 as of today, and still making pretty consistent progress. What should I be aiming to hit x5 in order to hit 225 as my 1rm? Any other last minute advice that might help me? And yes, I realize this is a pretty specialized question about a dumb bet. But it's for the greater good of public squat awareness.
