Yeah was intending to do reps and not a 1rm butbonxe finished squat went ahead and tried for shits then repeated for other 2 moves. For 1rm for me I make rather large jumps and only do 4 repair max at lower weight and 1 or 2 once getting close.

Today marks the end of my de-load week. Heading to the gym in a few for my last workout.

So I get to set rep ranges based on my new 1RM's on my phone later. After reading FlaPatsFan progress, I'm thinking I'm going to go with a lower rep scheme so that I can start upping the weight on.

Let's see what getting back into the bigger numbers feel like to my body..... and hope it holds up!

Got a video? And how old are you? 425 lb is shit ton of weight. Do you do any stretches, mobility exercises, and what is your overall approach for doing squats. What do you weigh, and how long have you been lifting.

I can put most people to shame on squat form, and depth but I have never even come close to 400 lbs for my actual 1 RM (not JM way of calculating your 1 RM). I think weight of a person, depth (quarter squats are obviously easier than below parallel), and age plays an important role (and obviously if one is on sauce or not) but no matter how hard I tried I was never actually able to do even 370 lb.

Thanks brother, hitting 400+ pretty consistently now which I am extremely pleased with. I知 not chasing any numbers but just seeing where upping volume mixed with heavy working sets will take me.

I just got some new knee sleeves (Titan Yellow Jackets) those should give me a nice little boost! Haaa

I need to get some sleeves as a precautionary means. I've never owned a pair.

Years ago I was squatting 365 for reps when this older big guy asked me if I ever wrapped. I didn't know what he was talking about.

He then proceeded to wrap my knees, and I could hardly hobble to the rack they were so tight. My first rep with wraps was crazy.....felt like I had a compressed spring under my butt that let go when I went up.

Those were back in the days when I was ego lifting, so I took full advantage of them. Now I realize it was a crutch like a bench shirt, but I didn't care.

But I do need to get some sleeves. And for those reading this that haven't heard of them, sleeves don't give you any leverage or advantage....just extra insurance of keeping your knee "bits" in place as you squat.

Cheap insurance!

I can't speak for FPA............but have you ever had your form looked at by a professional? Just curious as I train with one everyday. He can take any lift I do and isolate what part of it is holding me back just by watching.

Squats come easy to me. But as an example... My biggest crutch was bench. And it was from the bottom of the lift up for the first 6 inches or so.

So he had me in a rack with the pins set where I could hardly get under the bar....and a second set of pins about 6 inches above that. Then for weeks my bench was training that range of motion and trying to push through the rack.

It really helped break up what was my sticking point.

I wish had someone to watch my form (I actually had my PT check my form but that was just by watching videos of it) but over the years I have recorded my self enough times, and have watched enough YouTube strength coaches to kinda have an idea of how to perform it. But you are right about in order to progress you have to constantly make changes, tweak your form, and sometimes even change up your rep range to make strength gains. And if that doesn't work caloric surplus should add some weight on the bar.

My biggest issue is that I get caught in a rut, and never really train as a powerlifter to make serious strength gains. I like hybrid systems that have a focus on strength first but also have enough volume for hypertrophy.

My biggest dilemma nowadays is not having the motivation to go to the gym. I used to never miss a day and whether it was cold, or hot, snowing, or windy I was there 5 days a week. Now I constantly miss days either from being sick, life in general, or not having the motivation to go.

At 41 I think my days of lifting heavy are almost done. Well, I have been saying that for a few years now but for some reason I keep doing the heavy weights, and compound movements. But you are 45, and are still kicking a$$; so that gives me a bit of hope.

Harris, I知 47, 510 180 lbs. All natural, always have been. I use HMB which I feel has really helped me retain muscle size and strength as I致e gotten older. I video all my 1rms. I definitely need to see my form and breakdown the movement if it痴 a failed rep. Squats most importantly for my depth. I always break parallel (hip crease below knee).

I squat a lot....like 2-3 times a week. A lot of variations (Front Squats, Box Squats, Squat Cleans) and of course High bar BS. As for mobility and stretching, I do a ton. I use a mobility program from Kelly Starrett, the guru of mobility and human movement. I focus mainly on hips, hams and back. A lot of shoulder mobility also.

I致e been working out/lifting/training since High School so over 30 yrs now. Playing collegiate Football and Lacrosse built a strong foundation for leg power, which carried on into my older years. I dabbled in competitive CrossFit for awhile working a lot of Olympic lifts. But I changed all my training around and do more hybrid functional stuff mixed with strength and metabolic conditioning. It is working well. I am by no means an expert but I know what works for me. Hopefully this helped you out a bit.

Everything the guys have said above me is correct. It's sounding to me like you are getting in a "rut".... and that could be where most of your problems like. Just because you go to the gym doesn't mean that your heart is in it.

I see it day in/day out, same people who never miss a day, but just go through the motions....and they look and perform the same year after year. Don't let this happen to you!

I think you need a "radical change" in your program. Maybe pick a weight that's 60% of your max and focus on building reps up. Try to never leave a week where you don't at least progress some.

It may be just the thing to ignite that spark again.

I went through something Similiar at about 40....early mid-life crises maybe along with work stress. I spent almost an entire year of maybe averaging 1-2 days a week in the gym....half-assed everything, and just got out as quickly as possible.

At the same time, I just dropped my diet altogether and kind of ate what I wanted, when I wanted. During this time, I lost 37lbs. Now I'm a naturally lean person, and I looked like a skinny kid with a swimmer/gymnast build.

But I was looking through some pics my wife found of me when I did my first bodybuilding contest, and it flipped a switch. I also had/have a great training partner that stayed on my ass.

When I made the decision to go back, it lit a fire in me and I couldn't get enough of it. Plus it helped that my body had carried a lot more muscle in the past, and muscle memory is real. It was hard at first, but after a month it was like love at first sight again.

I was seeing changes weekly which just fueled me even more. And since I had already been there and done that, I made quick progress and then even surpassed my old self as I was watching my diet much more closely.

Long story short, you have to find a way to reignite that fire because to me.....you sound more like your burnt out than anything.

Yep! I agree...also, my diet although good is still not geared for building alot of mass. And you are absolutely right about stepping back and taking a different approach to spark the interest. I think consistency is more important than pushing big weights all the time. Also, now that I have done just about every routine under the sun I am more interested in for the long haul.

Probably sounds like a bunch of excuses but I can't afford to get injured, and definitely can't afford any time off due to injuries. But hopefully soon I will be giving Nsuns a shot.

Nsuns is great as you can modify it anyway you want. And it works you through all the rep ranges. My de-load was this week....so next week starts my new loading phase.

Not sure what you are looking to do with diet....if you're bulking or cutting.

But if looking to add some surplus.....i think people go overboard. It only takes 200 calories a day extra to swing me towards gaining.

But I'm sure you know that. A surplus is a surplus no matter how small.

That's another reason why I don't factor my training calories burnt back into my diet. My training typically burns on average the same, so I don't add those back in.

I rely on cardio for my deficit as I can get a better feel for it when I start cutting.

Yeah I agree when loading can add way too many calories. I have that issue because the more I eat the more I train but then feel like a fat kid. I haven't counted macros forever and more by feel. Problem is if I train heavy i eat even heavier. I added in daily concept 2 about 2 months ago and has helped me some back and leg endurance as well as a source of daily cardio.
