    Forever Lever 10mm. red! My lifts are on IG - vinzorelli

    I'm gunning for 315 before the end of the year. That would be right about 2.5x BW. I'd be happy with that for a while.

    The levers are awesome. I've had mine for years. I rock the royal blue :smile:

    Nice! I have the 10mm Lever belt too. It is by the far the best belt I've ever used. I'm very tempted to buy a second as a back-up just in case mine should break, because it takes like 6-weeks to get. Mine is just black, came close to getting the chocolate. LOL

    I am getting another belt for my birthday as a gift from my husband. I've only ever own Inzer belts but I'm buying one from Bob's belts http://www.bobsbelts.com/. They aren't cheap, about $200 including shipping but I'm being a princess and I want a tri-colour belt. They make them custom in the colours you select and will pre-work the leather around the holes. Plus they will do custom stitching and embroidery.

    I'm sticking with a 10mm single prong and getting it in navy, powder blue and white with my initials embroidered on the back. Total princess but since they last forever, I want to get what I want. They are sending me leather swatches to make sure of my colour selection.

    I can think of worst things to be picky about, very cool!

    Just clocked 300lbs @ 129lbs two days ago. Just my trusty inzer belt. Video on my IG - vinzorelli

    Good grinder. 2.3xBW, shooting for 2.5x BW before the end of the year.

    I bought new plates for set at home and hit my first ever raw squat of 325 pounds. No belt, no wraps, nothing... starting with a max of 190 a year and a half ago, Im thrilled to hit that weight. It pushes my total over 1000 pounds! I think I will set my sights on doing my first meet next summer.

    Finally got 350lbs for 5 reps for my Monday workout and will try for 360lbs for a triple tomorrow. Current program calls for 10lbs jumps, but might have to move to 5lbs jumps in the near future.

    Also raw as I have yet to feel the need for a belt or anything else yet.

    Nice job! I'm hoping to hit 300 lbs @ 123 lbs by next Spring (with belt and knee wraps). Let us know when you've hit that 325 goal.

    That's awesome. If you're hitting top numbers at your home gym, that must mean you've got it set up right so that's comfortable.

    That's some good weight. Good luck on getting those triples.

    Thanks. I'm waiting on my adipowers to show up. Hopefully that'll help me adjust some biomechanics like the slight heel lift I'm experiencing. Time to get strong.

    Got my triple last Friday, but it was at 355lbs...don't know why the spreadsheet jumped that weight by 5 compared to previous weeks at 10lbs jumps. But completed this Monday's workout with ramped set of 5 at 355lbs...I think I might have finally found my "groove" in regards to bar position and stance as while it was tough, I could have made it another rep or two. Spreadsheet says 365lbs for my triple coming Friday....

    Paused squats are definitely helping! Haven't tested my max in a while (see profile pic for my reasoning), but managed to slam out 600 confidently without my spotters the week before the arrival, and pushed a 1005 lockout to get over the "this is too heavy" mentality.

    That sticking point when I try to push through parallel is going away bit by bit, and I'll be ready to compete in the spring!

    looking to work up to a 1RM tomorrow on squat day, but as of now my best is 365x5 as the final set of 5x5 with 285/305/325/345/365. hoping to push out 405-425 working some warm ups and heavy singles....

    625 in competition, barely missed 660- bar tilted a little too far to one side so I didn't get depth on the other side when trying to recover.

    One of those rare days where the weight just felt light. It was going up easy.

    245x5 (5 rep PR) 90% of my 1RM
    260x3 (3 rep PR) 95% of my 1RM

    bodyweight: 124-125

    275 for 3 reps @ bodyweight of 124-125

    had two people observe and confirm that all reps went below parallel

    275 is my PR from my October meet. My next meet is in three weeks.

    Mine is all over the place at the moment. I ate at a little above my maintenance calories two weeks ago and handled 370lbs for 5 reps rather easily, but after a few days back at caloric deficit, I struggled to get 365lbs for 5 reps last week and couldn't get 370lbs for my triple on Friday. Seems like it's taking longer to recover here lately on squatting but my bench for whatever reason seems to be improving some...:huh:

    Awesome numbers. I use StrongLifts 5x5 Program. It calls for 5 pound jumps on everything except Deadlift, Which is 10 lb. jumps.
    I found this formula helps me advance consistently, while continuing to get stronger.
