    Squat: 10 lbs on good days, 5 lbs on ok days. 165x5-235x5 then I changed my progression a bit
    Bench: 5 lbs, but I hate benching so it wavers
    Deadlift: 5-10 lbs. 185x5-275x5
    Clean: 5 lbs but I just learned this movement, I added 5 lbs every day from 135-175 lbs

    It's like this...

    I benched in highschool like everybody else. Didn't squat or deadlift. This past winter rolls around. I'm like, "dude, you need to stop f*cking around and do some real weightlifting." So I learn to squat and pull and just design my own program. Progress is kinda slow. Then I get injured. I come back after recovering and get myself on SS with a 155x5 bench, 165x5 squat, 225x5 deadlift. I ran SS until I got to the numbers above, then I started training differently.

    Only thing that is measurable for me is squats, 10 lbs a week for the first 7 weeks.

    Are you sure you didn't drink too much milk and drain your adrenals?
    There is no such thing as 'strong enough'

    For squat, I went from 175 for 5 to 315 for 5 in 8 months.
    For bench, I went from 115 for 5 to 170 for 5 in 8 months.
    For deadlift, I have no idea what I started at. I'm doing 295 for 5 right now though.
    350 Bench
    565 Dead
    520 Parallel Box Squat

    I'm still a beginner, but here's my stats:

    Bench: 95x5 to 185x1 (maxing out again shortly)

    Squat: 165x5 to 300x1 (will be 315x1 on Monday)

    Deadlift: 170x5 to 405x1 (missed 415x1 this week because of my grip)


    That's after 7 months; 5 with a 5x5 program and 2 with custom routines.

    I'm on Starting Strength now, and I started with 225lb squat, 135lb bench, 275lb deadlift, 175lb clean and 100lb overhead press. On Thursday I did 3x5 275lb squat, 3x5 160lb bench and 1x5 325lb deadlift. For clarification, I've been on this for 3 weeks, so I wouldn't say I increased my weights by that much. I started with pretty conservative numbers and built until things got real heavy, and now everything is going to slow down to 5lb jumps per workout.

    5 kilos on DL, 2.5-5 kilos on squat and 2.5 kilos on bench (sometimes felt too much).

    still though when i was doing starting strength, not too long ago, sometimes due to lack of sleep i'd leave an extra day between workouts

    Did you really start with a 175 lb clean? if so, what's it now?

    Yep, I started with a 175 clean (I did 5x3 instead of 3x5, cause in the programming it said that later on once you master the technique that you could/should change it to 5x3 as it was better). Last workout I did 5x3 @ 190, and tomorrow I'll be doing 5x3 @ 195. My clean max is 235. Hope this helps

    DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE.

    DO IT WHEN IT HAS TO BE DONE.

    DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.

    DO IT THAT WAY ALL THE TIME.
