So I've trained bb style for the 3.5 years I've lifted (which I severely regret). Started first strength program, Madcow, about 4.5 months ago. I lost strength in some of the main lifts last year while cutting. So, I entered in most of the lifts light, squats made a huuge jump and I finally failed them, even though I reset another time w/o failing b/c I lost some weight while being away.
Calculated 1RM at 167ish lbs morning
Squat (high bar) - 338lbs (video from the side, slightly below parallel)
Bench - 300lbs paused (meet)
Deadlift - 405+ (notice I tend to put my butt too high and use too little leg, b/c I'm weak off the floor. really working on this, so i couldn't do as much w/ proper form)
Military Press - 180lbs
I'm thinking of possibly switching to another routine and having a similar progression b/c -
1. It's recommended by this routine to do high bar. Switching to low bar could have a negative impact on it? If I can switch to low bar and it really works, I'll stay on this. I've already made a 60+lb jump on high bar squats, not sure if I can keep going.
2. Each lifting day is starting to take 2+ fuking hours when I make sure I hit my lifts and it's getting annoying. Especially friday.
Thread: Any recommendations?
