I don't know how I messed up the math in the last post, but it was wrong. My max lifts are 185 bench, 245 squat, and 300 deadlift at 155lbs body weight. I've cut a lot of weight over the last year and got quite a bit stronger despite not actually lifting that often or hard. I've been working on getting faster and more functional as a sprinter/runner/athlete and got lazy regarding my strength training. I'm a little disappointed with myself because there's no reason I can't do both simultaneously, but I'm continually working on improving my internal motivation. Doing really hard sprint workouts and then going to the gym afterwards just wasn't going to happen on my weaker willpower days. Anyways, the math should have been: Bench x 1.3 = Squat Bench x 1.6 =Deadlift Squat x 1.2 = Deadlift I think those are pretty standard ratios. My goals for strength workouts are to lift each major group (legs, chest, back) at least twice a week. I have legs/back 3 times a week and chest/shoulders 2 times. Biceps/triceps are once a week, but fuck those things. At least one really heavy, low rep workout to stimulate the central nervous system and at least one light, high rep workout to induce hypertrophy and muscle growth. In reality my average was probably once a week for each major muscle group over the last year. Damnit!
