          What type of throws for the medicine ball? And do you recomend doing a HIIT workout with the boxing and rowing machine?

I have at least about another 1.5-2 years before i step onstage again and I've really been aching to compete. So I have been thinking of testing natural raw powerlifting. I conservatively looked at my lifts and checked out where i would place... ends up I would be around top 25 nationally with my lifts. So tonight I decided to go in and just go nice and easy and see about what my squat one rep max was. I have not regularly done back squats in over a year now; been doing only front squats. My personal record on squats was 455 for 3 (not great reps) so I said if I hit 455 for 1 i'd be happy.

            So I warm up and start singles

            405 X 1 easy
            then 455 X 1 was even easier than 405

            So I decide to go for 475 for a single. This is more weight than I've ever had on the bar before. I hit that and it felt even better than 455.

            So obviously I have to go for 495 (5 plates). This is again more weight than I've ever had on the bar. I get under the bar, walk it out, go down almost too far (Isabel said my ass was near my ankles) as I'm trying to squat to parallel to maximize quad involvement (my glutes & hams are big enough) and press it up no problem. ALMOST 500 LBS FOR ME! I was so excited. Especially after not squatting for a year! I think realistically I can get my squat around 550-575 by fall for a meet.

            My deadlift PR is 545 (and that was after doing 405 for 5 on front squats) so I feel I could probably get near 600 lbs for deads.

            My best bench is 315 for 5-6 so I think I could be around 350 on that. So I'm really excited, now I have a goal and I am going to make it happen!

                          • hey layne...i love your column and respect your knowledge.....out of curiousity, how strong were you when you first began lifting....how big were you....I feel like I have good genetics and determination to be very strong and defined, without steroid use....i just am curious as to how long it may take to become truly strong....Im 18 with a year and a half of serious training and eating.....My lifts are just not that high yet and it concerns me, my bench 1rm is 225 but I still struggle in the upper portion of the lift, my squat 3rm is 315, and my deadlift max was 405......I feel like they are sticking points as opposed to early milestones....how do i get above these lifts while still doing bodybuilding style training....for instance... i look much more athletic and strong then I really am.....stupid lankynesss..

                            • well the first time i ever picked up a barbell i benched 85 lbs lol. for a measuring stick for you, when i was 18 years old I did the indiana state bench press & squat championships. At 180 lbs I benched 275 (had done 305 previously but missed on both attempts at the meet) and I squatted 325 (pathetic) but managed 5th place in my weight class.

                              I honestly think you are doing fine. As far as building muscle & strength I encourage you to watch my episodes where I talk about my workout and read my FAQ. My power/hypertrophy adaptive training is a great combo of strength training & hypertrophy training
