    My info: 33 years old, father of three. Weight - 205lbs Height - 5'10"

    I work out on my lunch hour, so I don't have a lot of time to add assistance or mess around. I've been lifting for about 6 years. My biggest hangup was eating enough because I've been fat all my life. So my low numbers reflect that. I've been doing better recently on that front.

    I'm currently on a 4-day routine: M - Squat and Press, T - Bench and Power Clean, TH - Squat and Press, F - Bench and Deadlift.

    I add chins when I have time, and I also do heavy-bag kickboxing tues and fri nights.

    My current 3x5 numbers are:
    Squat: 295 8/1/13
    Press: 155 7/29/13
    Bench: 215 7/30/13
    Deadlift: 365 (1x5) 8/1/13
    Power Clean: 170 (1x3) 7/30/13

    Updating my numbers. Been trying to lose fat while maintaining strength. It's amazing how much heavier a 330 lb squat feels than 315 lb.

    Right now I'm doing a light day w/ more reps and a heavy day with less reps. Still deadlifting just once per week.

    Last week's workouts.

    Squat Light: 285 5x6 reps
    Squat Heavy: 320 3x3

    Bench Light: 210 5x6
    Bench Heavy: 230 3x3

    Press Light: 135 9,7,7,5,5
    Press Heavy: 160 3x3

    Deadlift: 395 1x5, this was a little ugly. I was too excited to be close to four plates. I may take it down a bit to make sure my back is tight, flat.

    Still working in chinups and power cleans when I can. I typically only get to do one lift a day due to my time constraint. Sucks.
