Body weight recommendation for strength goal

So right now I’m staying at 181 and pulling 405. My long term(10 year) goal is to pull 666. I’m 28 years old and a lanky 6’2. I would say my genetics are poor to meh. How heavy do you think I’ll need to be to achieve this goal? Thank you

I'm extremely confused about where to take my body comp.

Cliff notes at bottom if this is too much for you. The reason I brought this to the PL/SM section is because I know if I were to try to bring this to Misc. or the Losing Fat sections I'm pretty sure I would've gotten a "lol ur 19% bodyfat? you should just keep cutting tbh" response. This is a...

What can I do to strengthen my wrists? They bench backwards when I bench no matter how hard I grip. No issues with DL grip.

Pain around ribcage from deadlifts?

There is no pain on the left side, the majority of it is on the right side, and it's a bit painful when inhaling deeply. It doesn't hurt when I touch that area, but it pains a little when I, for example, get in bed or stretch. It feels like it is behind the ribs, I don't know if I pulled something...

Gym Recommendations in Houston, TX

I'll be in Houston in October 2018 and was wondering what the best PL gym is to train a few days. So far I have circled Texas Barbell Syndicate and Texas Strength Weightlifting Center but I am open to suggestions. Would be good to have a gym where I can get some training points too.

Silent Mike/Omar/Bart Kizen Powerlifting Program

I've acquired the 12 Week Peaking Program + Silent Mike's Infinite Off Season Program. The off season program has me doing Barbell Rows and Block Pulls one day, and the day after you should do Lat Pulldowns. What do you think about it? Isn't it counter-productive? Other than that the program...

How to make lift progress as "experienced" lifter with bad schedule?

Totals currently are S/D/B ~400/500/300 Working 60-70 hours/ week. At least 1 day of which I'm typically up over 24 hours straight for work. I've made my way back up to those numbers with a couple months of relatively consistent lifting, but in the past, this is where I tend to stall or get...

Honestly, how many of you guys have joint issues?

Im thinking of getting into competing. Although i love hunting and fishing and want to be able to hike through the mountains when im 70 and dont want to be crippled. I know 1 powerlifter and his joints are completely shot. Is this commom? Or is arthritis more related to injury than heavy lifting?

Any powerlifting tennis players out there?

Weird combination, i know. My question is, if there is anymore of us out there, is how does tennis affect your training? Do you change your programming/workouts/recovery techniques? Its hard to focus all your energy on powerlifting when you are playing two hours of tennis 5-6x a week.

Angry Why is my bench press going down?

Powerdream's Training Journal

I want to be a powerlifter so bad, even though I am still dealing with a few nagging injuries. I am not at all confident that I will succeed. But I want this SO bad, that I have to keep trying. I can't turn back; I'm stuck on this path. The only way I can be successful is to believe that my...
