    Like Rich these are just what the calculator rolls out from my 5 rep amounts. But, I have done more weight than 275 in bench in years past. I don't bench much at all anymore...but I have a couple times just. to face down the fear of bench that I now have (since a pec rupture a few years back). The rest is hypothetical. Squat still wrecks my low back (not the squats fault...I'm f'd up and I know it), but I'm doing some front squat right now just to work them in....135lbs for sets of 10 aren't all that impressive though.
    Have you considered hip belt squats? Or mixing in some sumo deadlifts (assuming you pull conventional now)?

    Great bench numbers. We should have included weighted chins in the ratios. I did 3 sets of 95 x 2 the other day. I still can't get a 3rd rep though.

    Very nice on the chins! Next workout I'm gonna do 90 again. I dropped to 70lbs to get a few extra reps for a couple workouts... we'll see where I am next week. I actually was thinking about trying the sumo deadlift thing (yeah, I do conventional).

    Deadlift 2x10x255
    Front Squat 2x10x135
    Weighted Chin 1x45x9 Dropset to BWx3 (really fast dropset....I had nothing left to give)
    Weighted Dips 1x70x8 Dropset to BWx10 (took about 10 seconds to get the belt off so had some reprieve)

    Felt good in this rep range, but after a couple more weeks I'm gonna bump the weights and go 6-8....then again and go 3-5. Just kinda winging it though rather than doing somebodies program. Actually I'll be bumping the weights for this workout on everything but the Dips it looks like just to stay in the rep range I'm aiming for.

    Stronglifts "B" workout today.

    Squats: 5x5 @ 275 lbs
    OHP: 5x5 @ 120 lbs
    Deadlift: 1x5 @ 300 lbs

    Probably throw in some handstands, chin ups and ab work depending on how energetic I feel. Partner wrestling constituted a pretty....vigorous workout... earlier today also

    5 Rep Maxes as set so far on SL:

    Squats: 5x 330 lbs
    Bench: 5x 220 lbs
    Pendlay: 5x220 lbs
    OHP: 5x 140
    Deadlift: 5 x 350 lbs

    I went over 50% of my 5RM when starting out...cos I just couldn't justify lifting like a wuss for that many weeks. We'll see how that decision pans out.
