    I never thought i would be doing this weight so at the time never weighed in! Hindsight is great isn't it.
    I first competed in November 2014 and got 195.
    Second comp in February 2015 i hit 205kg!

    Nice!

    I'll throw my hat in on this one. My biggest official PR (not 1RM) was 367, and I'm driving hard for a 400# squat at a meet the 23rd. Since I haven't chosen to join the mighty mini league (150# BW and below), 440 is definitely an eventual target.

Strength is down a bit, but I have two healthy knees again, so there's that. I'm good for 170-175kg on any given day for sets of 5, so hopefully I don't have too much ground to make up. Maybe 200 by the end of the summer?
    175kg for a regular, non-psyched set of 5 puts you at a >200kg squat 1RM. By the RTS scale you should be able to hit 205. Get at it man.

    I'm in bruh. Ive done 400 but that was pre injuries, I did a fairly easy 375 recently. I reckon I'll have it in about 3 months.

    Not sure if I signed up for this but next singles day (x 5) is 405, E1RM is 420 ish. Got a meet in August and if on track my third attempt would be 435, guess it should be 440.
