    Sweet, that's a back squat right? Um, when you say only a belt do you mean like no squat suit or knee wraps?

    What width stance do you use and where do your toes point and how far down does the barbell rest on your traps/scaps?

    Metrics its about 180kg, but managed 190kg for 4 recently thats about 418lbs...

    Havent trained MMA for around 8 months and am hoping to start back up again soon, wondering if my strength gains are going to cross over well if at all

    Also its high bar squat bellow parraell, no suit or knee wraps, bar rests on my traps, fairly wide stance with toes pointing out

    cheeky fucker :happy:

    i'm 5"10 aswell so 210lbs is alot of weight for my height, according to my doctors "charts" im clinically obese :D

    I don't know if theres a very big strength training following on here, but would be good to hear what other people are doing, routine wise and PB in lifting.

    Currently following Jim wendlers 5/3/1 routine after doing stronglifts for around 6 months

    My current numbers are Benchpress: 190lbs, Squat: 195lbs, Deadlift:240lbs, OHP: 110lbs. I cheaped out on my squats and DL for about 3 months to target my Bench and OHP because at one point in time by Bench max was 145 and my squats were around 300. Having not actually worked squats in years I neglected them and am now pissed at myself for it. I'm now on 5/3/1 and enjoying it immensely. This was acutally my deadlift day of my first week.

    There are a couple of serious lifting guys on here, Emevas, TheRuss, and a few others that are all WAY more knowledgable than I am. But Stronglifts and Westside are two pretty highly recommended programs and I think 5/3/1 is also becoming pretty highly recommended. I'll add that my strength gains have carried over very nicely to JiuJitsu, so I don't think they'll hurt your MMA game at all.

    I jst started stronglifts 5x5 about 5months ago, I'm 5'6" 226lbs, squat 275, BP 225, OHP 135, DL 275, barbell row 155, I'm fat and weak, plus no cardio. So I'm a dissapointment on many levels

    I'm presently training a program based off Pavel's 3-5, but with a work capacity set thrown in at the end of each movement. My squat progressing follows a 3 steps forward, 2 steps back approach, where I set a PR, go back 10lbs, train for 3 days to set a 5lb PR, go back 10lbs, etc. My movement selection is as follows

    Day A
    Safety squat bar squats 3x5
    Bench press 3x5
    Weighted chins 3x5

    Day B
    Safety squat bar squats 3x5
    Strict press 3x5
    DB rows 3x5

    With a work capacity set following.

    Been on a fat loss diet, so I've gone from 207 to 190 at 5'9 while training this way. Have no idea why my present PRs are, but at my heaviest, I hit a 475 squat, 365 bench, and 540 deadlift.

    Starting Strength is probably a better workout to do than Stronglifts now for beginners. Last I checked, they removed Dips from Stronglifts in favor of doing push ups to failure. They also replaced a couple other lifting exercises with bodyweight exercises. You just do 3 sets to failure. It looks like ****, but it's better than doing nothing.

    Congrats on the squat mark btw.
