Before I go into training I need to know what my maxes are. I have had an idea of what I was able to lift, but haven't truly trained since the spring. And not for any competition but just for strength class in school.

I have in this time been looking at workout programs. Taking from what I am most comfortable doing from High School I want to continue on something similar to it. I will be doing 3days of lifting with 3days of cardio (Zumba because it is better than running in one place) and resting on Saturdays when I work. By next Tuesday I will for sure know if I will be doing my old workout or might add some tweaks to it. Since I don't plan on competing till the spring, I have a lot I want to fix on my lifts.

So today I started maxing with my Dead lifts (Conventional). I think it went really well, and I am happy with what I got. From 135 to 155 I felt I had another in me, but since i'm maxing I didn't want to tire out.

4 @ 95
4 @ 105
2 @ 115
2 @ 125
1 @ 135
1 @ 145
1 @ 150
1 @ 155
1 @ 160
1 @ 165
1 @ 170
1 @ 175
Failed 180 attempt

Squat Max...
Warm up Bar x4

4 @ 95
2 @ 105
2 @ 125
1 @ 135
1 @ 145
1 @ 150
1 @ 155(missed)
put 135 back on for 1
put 145 back on for 1
(These both seemed easy for me)
put 155 back on missed again

Just disappointed in myself for missing (what should have been) an easy weight for me. My best max back in HS was 185.... I think I honestly let things get to me while lifting. So I got mad and left and vented to my brother, and now I am determined to get that amount back and more. Just have to bench and start my routine Tuesday!!

I spied on you during training, and here were my observations:

1.) The misses with 155 were at least partly mental. You just need to build up confidence dropping into the hole. You're putting the breaks on your squat and robbing yourself of any stretch-reflex.

2.) You've got some technique issues that need fixing. Once those get addressed, your squat will skyrocket. Grab one of our guys next time you're squatting and ask for feedback.

It's not really spying when you were on the platform right behind me, but thank you for the advice!!!

I believe I saw you for a couple of your sets yesterday. Force your knees out. They were caving in like crazy as you rose up out of the hole. Strengthen your hips and engage your glutes.
