Good Numbers For First Meet

I currently weigh 160, 10% BF, fasting. I've been wanting to do a powerlifting meet to really see my capability, but I am a very competitive person and don't want to show up completely out of my league. My current lifts are: Squat: 375 (Easy, could more than likely hit 405 in a few months)...

How close to 405 Bench?

So I've been out of the gym for a year, due to injuries, life, being lazy, and covid. Even after a full year off, my nagging injuries are still acting up, rotator cuff, back and shoulders. 6 weeks ago I decided that I'm gonna try to make 1 final push for my life time goal of a 405 Bench Press, even...

Hello, I like working out at home, but I've been to every gym in town. I've trained for the past seven years, and my strength may set records soon. If you wouldn't stop training naturally, you'll become a medium-build, magazine, physique. Girls are super friendly. This year, my strength...

My first rep benching is terrible but my form across the rest of set is fine

It’s really pissing me off. For whatever reason my first rep benching (lifting off the bar) is absolutely terrible. I come down too slow and no matter how much I try I cannot kick this. It’s killing my 1RM and ultimately burning me out when going heavy in general. Any tips or advise is...

20 Rep Squat Program

Anyone have experience with this program? I'm thinking about giving it a go to get my squats moving (legs have always been my weak point). My only concern is that there really aren't many other excercises in the program (besides squats), and I don't want to neglect anything. Also, will just doing...
