    What's up guys, I am Colin and this will be my log. Moved over from the intermediate section. I train at Atlanta Barbell with Dee, Alex, Niki, and Cassi. So I have plenty of people to yell at me and tell me I'm doing some stupid shit form wise so that is pretty cool. Anyways did my first powerlifting meet this weekend and loved it. Ended up going 9/9 and the results were
    Squat:446
    Bench:275
    Deadlift 480

    And here are my stats

    Age:20
    Height:6'1

    Thanks everybody. Especially you David you are my special sunflower.

    Squat

    Bench
    230x5x3

    25x5,5,3 - to phaaaat must cut to 130 immediately.

    So basically programming wise I still have a reset in bench and press left for LP. And for my squats I'm doing 3 sets of ascending triples with a backoff triple on Thursdays, then 3 sets of ascending 5s on Sunday's hitting my top triple from Thursday for 5. Trying to squeeze out a little bit more before switching to Texas method.

    Anyways here's bench from today.

    I was actually thinking about cutting to 163, I'm tired of my legs being huge tree trunks and not being able to wear any boxers without serious chaffing

    370x5
    390x5

    I think I might be too vertical, annoyed that these were harder than they should have been considering I ended LP with 380x5x3. But my feelings aint worth shit.

    Bench
    232.5x5x3

    Finally able to do these all with one breath, felt a lot better, yay for lung recovery after 3 weeks no nicotine/cigarettes

    You are too vertical. Set your knees and lean over.
