Not exactly sure the length of time here but something like this

 

250ish to recently squatted 405 and projected 1RM of 435

 

300 to my PR of 450 conv DL, sumo DL at 435 right now with projected 1RM of 480

 

Bench, well that still sucks.  added roughly 50# to my shitshow bench

 

OHP 115 to 175#, 10# off BW right now

DL 160kg up to 195kg
Squat 120kg to 160kg
ohp 50kg to 82.5kg
Bench 110kg to 130kg

They are roughly what I started out with just over a year ago but to be honest until. I did OMOB I didn't really push myself

Ha! Didn't realize this but I logged on for the first time 1 year ago.

I listed my maxes at:
Bench 270
Squat 285
OHP 145
DL 315

I got my bench up to 295, but I wasn't touching my chest & I had plateaued. So I backed off the weight a few months back and started doing pause reps. This has worked great as I currently project at 305, although I've not formally tested it yet.

Squat has a similar disclaimer in that I got up to 405 but I didn't feel I was going deep enough. Then a few months later I tore my Achilles. So I took that as an opportunity to reconstruct my squat going "ass to grass" on all reps. This is coming along nicely as I'm projecting in the 350+ range and hope to exceed that by the end of the year.

OHP seemed the slowest but is currently +40 at 185.

DL had a reset that was testicular in nature but currently is projected +120 at 435 and I hope to be north of 450 by years end.

In fairness, I've done OMOB and 531. Somewhere in there, I also ran 4 Spartans and 1 marathon. Alas, there's a little less grit on the sandpaper right now I'm using my Achilles rehab to focus all my efforts on strength gains for this latest chapter.

All that to say, stay the course & stay committed to the plan.

I had no PR's before OMOB. Basically , after a few cycles, I tested my 1RM's.

 

In a nutshell, the numbers go like this, but numbers dont tell the full story, not for me.

 

LBBS: 210-385 OOPS! TYPO! 305lbs

DL: 310-385

Bench" 170-195

OHP: 125-135

 

OMOB got me strong, took away many pains and gave me much greater range of motion.

Great thread. You guys have come a long way in the last couple years.
