Nice job on those pullups! Bangin' em out with a plate is no mean feat
and tim im trying to progress with weight. normally i do 3 heavy sets and once i can get my third set of those for 5 i go up again. basically i want to make sure i will be able to handle adding more weight. last time i just kept adding weight every week and my only good set was the first, but i kept adding, and i eventually started hurting my joints. i want to make sure i dont push the weight increase too fast and risk injury, especially on squats. deadlifts i normally do a 1RM increase and do singles for that and keep increasing the weight, since i dont have many joint pains increasing with that. its just my knees hurt sometimes when i overwork them with too much weight.
holy crap those are some great squats bro, and the leg presses look killer too u should post up some recent pics man, let us see how u have progressed, the last pics u posted u had just started out right?
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
^well i really got into it when i was like 16 close to 17. im 19 from end of march now. but basically my first year or so was just getting introduced to a gym, then i just wanted to lose weight because i was a fat ass :crymeariver:
i have pics up from like last year about the same time when i was about 155, and then some of like the beginning of this year i was around 175ish but got a little too fat trying to bulk. now about 185 so ill try and get some new pics up sometime soon. maybe tonight if i can

A lot of my lifts might seem to not have improved a whole lot from like last fall, but im much stronger.
I realized i was getting an ego in the gym and just trying to throw up as big of weights i could and let form go to hell (esp. bench and squat)
and that led to some minor injuries too, and i realized i was a douche for doing that so cleared that up kicked it back with better form now everything shooting up
