    • The training and getting stronger every year is unrealistic. Think of it like this, if you went up 5 lbs on your bench every month, you'd increase 60 lbs in a year. Sounds more than reasonable right? No. Over 3 years increase 180 lbs? Still possible. 6 years...360? There is a tipping point in capability. And beyond that, injury will limit strength chasers at some point. Especially applying it to bodybuilding vs periodization in powerlifting.

      The varied and dynamic muscle building techniques that Derek has started to implement are a smart approach to his problem statement.

          60 lbs on your bench strength gain is huge in year, I'm not saying it's impossible but I'm more than happy if I can gain 20 lbs of bench press strength in a year

          • The other thing I want to add to that big dude that started this thread, is that if you feel ''uncomfortable'' doing 495 lbs or more on the squat, you can do high rep work, 225 lbs or 315 lbs but go for high reps, 100 reps or more, it works,and may produce brand new growth. You can't knock it until you try it

              I’m turning 49 this year. There is zero chance I will ever be under 495 again. Last time was in my mid 30’s. Nowadays, I’m lucky if I get under 405. Even though I can still do it, hips and knees pay for it the rest of the week when I do. I’m most comfortable when I stay with 365 as my last set. Keep in mind, as I’ve said before, I do hams before quads and then I press as my first quad movement. When I get to squats, my legs are already getting exhausted. This week is high reps on all muscle groups.
              I stop me....no one else does.

                    Sometimes after a certain age, high reps become important, I'm 42, high reps save my joints.

                        I bet Op can squat 585 for reps, maybe for 15 reps, if he wanted to

                          Not possible. Though I was impressed with my hack squatting yesterday. 5 plates on each side and I
                          did squeeze out 11 reps.
