    The most I've ever done is 495. I don't max on the squat often but I did hit 455 for 4 reps a few weeks ago. I may try 500 in the near future.

    Maybe up the volume in the 190-200 lbs range? There's a big drop between 180 lbs and 225 lbs. Also some close grip work as well? That's what I'm focusing on at the moment.

    I've never understood the point of geared powerlifting. It's always been a joke to me.

    I've been doing mixed grip with chalk for a long time. I try to rotate grips every few weeks. Lately, I've been having some issues with my left shoulder. I wonder if the mixed grip is the reason.

    When I first started benching I would do a ton of reps with light weight. You probably need to do a lot of work in the 85-95 lb range.
