    That's superb progress man keep it up :D
    Finally hit my 100kg bench today! Just missed a 167.5kg squat PB. Deadlift was a big struggle again even having taken over 2 weeks off this time. Similar to last time, I pulled my PR for 3 reps with ease 2 weeks ago and couldn't pull 95% today - gonna have to change something up! I know I could've easily hit a 105% PR those 2 weeks ago...

    Squat: 160kg
    Bench: 90kg , 100kg
    Total: 350kg
    Personal total: 54,862.5kg

    Total: 293837 lbs/133,282.4 kg

    Decided to go in and hit upper body yesterday, as I've more than obviously been neglecting that lately. :lol:

    Good luck to you! How was Smolov Jr? An adequate taste of the hell that is full Smolov, do you think?

    Hit a double workout today with all my assistance stuff after powerlifts. Brutal. Not recovered from Sunday either haha but it went well aside from deadlifts! Doing defecit and resetting my reps as opposed to touch and go. SO much harder, I need it.

    Squat 140kg 4x4
    Bench 85kg 4x4
    Deadlift 140kg 14 of goal 24 reps in an assortment of grueling sets :lol:
    Total = 5560kg
    Personal total = 60422.5kg
    Total: 317,678.4 lbs/144,096.5 kg

    Had one of the most unrelenting training sessions ever today, and it felt SO. DAMN. GOOD. Pulled a matching PR deadlift AFTER squatting, and without a belt. Last time I hit it was with. Still psyched up from the endorphin rush. The only shitty thing is that I was doing paused deadlifts and ripped one of my calluses off. Doesn't hurt much, but I know my grip suffered big time with every bit of assistance work we did after.

    Squats: 7x5 @ 245
    = 8,575 lbs
    Deadlift: 1x10 @ 165 (1650), 1x5 @ 255 (1275), 2x5 @ 305 (3050), 1x2 @ 355 (710), 1x1 @ 375 ([Beltless PR] 375), 0x0 @ 385 attempt (3" from lockout, grip failed before my body did)
    = 7,060 lbs
    = 15,635 lbs.

    Total: 353,292 lbs/160,295.8 kg

    I did the same 3000 pounds last night with a set of 30 and a set of 20. With the 100KM marathon training I am doing, I probably won't start helping out with bigger numbers until after January

    It may not seem like a lot of weight to you, but two sets of 30 reps is pretty damn impressive. That's solid muscular endurance right there.

    Totally bombed out last night. My session from Friday wore me down way more than I thought. Only hit half of my squats last night, so I took the time to do some medium weight/heavy volume accessory work.

    Squats: 4x4 @ 265
    = 4,240 lbs

    Total: 380,774 lbs/172,765 kg

    Took another day off of squatting to prepare for my last day of Smolov Jr. (10x3 @ 280. Yeesh!) Decided to get on the bench today. We have these machines at my gym called Keiser machines, that have attachments that are air powered. What they do is connect to the normal bench barbell and all of the weight is linear air pressure. With standard weights, momentum takes some of the weight off through the middle of the press. These keep it consistent through the entire motion. Definitely an entirely different beast.

    Bench: 3x5 @ 160 (2,400), 3x3 @ 185 (1,665), 1x2 @ 205 (410)
    =4,475 lbs/2,040.4 kg

    Total: 385,249 lbs/174,795.4 kg
    Personal: 185,365 lbs/84,103.9 kg

    Looked into those machines - seems like it would feel awesome!

    Beginner here :ugh: so please excuse my lack of "knowledge" about work outs.

    I was wondering if this thread is only limited to "squat, bench, and deadlift" or other exercises involving "lifting" like dumbbells etc. count as well?

    Only barbell bench, deadlift, and squat. Those are the "big 3" powerlifting movements.

    Finished up Smolov Jr. today, though I did fall two sets short (due to time constraints). Regardless, it's the most weight I've ever repped, and the most sets of said reps. I loved/hated the program. I loved it because I felt stronger, and I actually did get stronger. I hated it because it was ridiculously grueling and destroyed me. :lol: I'm definitely glad I did it, but there's no way in hell I could have done the full 13-week cycle.

    Squats:
    8x3 @ 277.5
    = 6,660 lbs/3,021.8 kg

    Total: 391,909 lbs/177,817.2 kg
    Personal: 192,025 lbs/87,125.7 kg

    Think I'll probably go back to Stronglifts 5x5, and instead of doing barbell rows, doing power cleans. I've never done any sort of Oly lift, so I'm interested to try something new.
