    My current Max weights that I've tried and completed or have been close are:

    Squats: 240lb
    Overhead Press: 130lb
    Deadlift: 330lb
    Bench Press: 190lb
    Barbell Row: 155lb

    I have ordered some supplements from bb.com and am looking to gain a ton of weight during winter. I bought some weight gainers and casein and will look at eating lots of good and healthy food. I'm hoping to go from 162lb--> 180lb in the next 4-6months hopefully, maybe faster?

    I will try my best to update at least once a week.

    That's an interesting program there.. I might take a look at doing some sort of hybrid of it. I was also taking a look at Wendlers 5/3/1 program.

    Anyone tried it?

    Should I get the book, $20? Anyone have?

    you should buy as many and read up as much as you can. Wendler, Tate, John, Rippetoe, Schwartzenegger, Weider etc etc etc.


    5/3/1 is great but it's not a pure bulking program. mass made simple is. pick a goal and hit that. you've built a great strength base, you just got figure out what you want to do next.

    This to the tee. 20$ is nothing to spend on a book that will get you crazy hell I have some books worth over $100 just on exercise physiology. The best thing to do is find a program that works and tweak it to your needs. Ive been following Matt Kroczaleski and he is a absolute beast and he trains at westside.

    But yeah just find a program and look back and see what worked and what didnt. This is him talking about how he does this

    How are you in your progression with working out? Staying with it or playing more sports now?

    Trying to get them higher. These are the base weights and I definitely want to add a good 15-25% on top of these weights in the next 4-6months or so. My eventual goal is 180lbs with under 10% bodyfat and close to or in the 1000lb club.

    Haven't done any lifting in months now. Just doing a lot of sports and generally very lazy.

    Cool thing about 5/3/1 is, you don't have to always lift your max to maintain your max. You do a lot of assistance work which helps tremendously. Beware you will be sore for days because of the volume.

    Your weight goes up slower but it's very steady. On average you add 5lbs to your bench and press per month and 10lbs to squat and deadlift per month. That might not seem a lot but 60lbs for bench/press and 120lbs for squat/deadlift in one year is SOLID.

    I'm a weakling but the program did help increase my bench and press by 30lbs before I started going crazy with my hockey/snowboarding and swimming.

    Anyway, weightlifting is one of those super long journeys so you get what you want out of it. Good luck man.

    You would be a beast at that weight. Just try to stay as consistent as possible and you will hit your goal no problem

    Thanks, I have my goals and I'm trying to match them as best as I can!

    Yeah it does but its been adding up slower and slower each workout. I've had to deload a few times now and will probably be deloading for the third time soon .. time for a new routine

    Still at Anytime Fitness but I'm going to change up gyms when my membership is done.

    I'm looking at taking swimming lessons because I don't know how to swim, , so if I find that I enjoy it I will be using swimming as my cardio

    Got my shipment in, all of it!

    Tried out the whiteflood, 1 full scoop, and it definitely did its job. I don't drink very much caffeine type drinks and it hit hard and fast lol. I think my body needs to get used to whiteflood.

    Also got my weight gainer in and my casein. The gainer tastes really good but the casein tastes like ass!
