    Squats 160kg (my current PB) 2x2 :D = 640kg
    Bench 97.5kg 2 reps, 92.5kg 2 reps = 380kg
    Deadlifts 130kg 3x5 + 1x12 = 3510kg

    I started resetting after each deadlift rep because I feel I'm not training my initial pull for maxes hard enough with touch and go. Jesus that is so much harder and my grip really struggled haha. Piece of cake 12 rep touch and go set at the end..

    Total 4530kg
    Personal total 46877.5kg

    Total: 196,611 lbs/89181.2kg

    Week 2 of Smolov Jr. Yesterday was a monster. Legs are constantly sore, but I've already seen a small difference in size and definition of my quads and glutes.

    6x6 @ 225 = 8,100 lbs/3,675.1 kg

    Total: 247,342.5 lbs/112,193.7 kg

    Jeez! you guys are too competitive :spock:
    How does anyone verify your results, hehe ;)

    Why not set a definite timeline, and get it into Guinness:
    Crazy bunch of guitarists makes one billion powerlifts within [chosen timeline]!

    The amount of time it will take just isn't feasible. Not to mention a super niche thing that literally nobody outside of the website would care about. :lol:

    Squat 245 lbsx8x2 = 3,920 lbs

    Wasn't focused this morning at all, and I think I am temporarily burnt out a little. Went light-ish. I'll try to come back here on Tuesday with at least 275x6x2, maybe even a third set. It's kind of hard to do 3 sets of near maximal weight with the time I am given in school, though.

    Succumbed to a weekend of plans and not hitting the gym, but I used that time as effective rest and hit it hard today.

    = 13,020 lbs/5,907.4 kg

    Total: 276,487 lbs/125,414.2 kg

    EDIT: Thought I'd see what my personal total was. PICK UP THE SLACK, MOTHER FATHERS! :flex:

    This one was a real challenge last night. Around the 6th or 7th set, I thought I was toast. But I sat down for 5 minutes, drank some water, and finished out the day. By far the most I've ever used as a working set, and it feels awesome. Looking to smash my 315 lb PR in two weeks. (End of the 3 week cycle, then a deload week, then I'll retest my max) Here's a video. If you look in the "Anyone here bench, lift weights, etc.?" thread back about 4 or 5 months, you'll see that my squat was pure shit. Half-depth, terrible form, and not a lot of weight. Now, the only issue I see is my knees need a little more stability, and I have a slight bit of butt wink. Other than that, I'm happy with it.
