    I don't max on squats and I stopped trying to increase weight at 500 lbs. My legs are already too big to fit in most jeans and even when dress slacks fit I can't bend over easily to tie my shoes without straining the seams to the point of popping.

    Also, I think if I go any higher the risk of injury increases so I just work on trying to increase reps...most I've done is 11 reps at 500 when I was finishing up my Andromass/Androhard cycle, lately been doing between 6-8 on my final heavy set.

    (245 lbs. 5'10", my dl has the most room to improve at 320x5, bp is at 280x5 normal grip, 295x6 wide grip, working to get the bp to 320x5 with normal grip and dl to 410x5 within the next 8 weeks of current 12 week cycle, last 4 weeks to get the body used to the extra weight).

    This is me too. I'm cutting down cause I'm just tired of being this big and my upper thighs are big enough and I have an ass. I've split every pair of dress slacks i have. Of course I'm 250ish right now, so I'm "supposed" to be doing like 700. I seldom go over 4 plates. I have some lower lumber scoliosis and don't have 100% of my left knee. I just try to do good reps when I do squat.

    I did it at 239.... It's always sucked! Also had knee worked on about 10 months ago so it's not 100%.... plus I was tryin to get my GH but that's not gonna happen sense raws went away.


    Oh well it's what I got so I'll just deal with it and let the other 2 lifts make my total...

    My best in competitiion was 770. I always pulled more than I squatted, which is a bit odd, I know. My bench was always around 5 bills but I generally totaled over 2000.

    I'm trying to increase my deadlift, but back injuries are making it a bitch, I'm in my 20s and I've had 2 bulging discs, dealing with 2nd one right now, going to start back doing deadlifts light in a few weeks, Luckily this one isn't bad, first one put me out of commision for a year.
    M1T, GOTTA LOVE IT.

    I competed in the eighties and nineties. Knee wraps and belts, along with single ply suits. Bench shirts were allowed. Only a few companies made powerlifting gear back then, if I remember right. All the gear has improved quite a bit since then. Practically a science these days. Trained with belt and wraps only, and only threw on the gear a few times before competition to get used to it a bit.
