    About 4 months ago I started training with a powerlifter... I've always done weights but mostly with the goal of staying ripped and quite big but recently wanted to go bigger and get some more respectable numbers on my lifts because while they are alright they aren't anything to shout about... Feel free to share any training tips etc that you have or anything you have done to break a plateau etc

    All these are 1 rep maxes

    Deadlift 200kg
    Squat 160kg
    Bent over row (no idea... Can do 120kg for 5)
    Bench 127.5kg (hit this last week but ass slightly left bench.. Think that's classed as a fail in powerlifting)

    Military press 75kg

    Big goals are to increase my bench and military press as my chest and shoulders are pissweak.. Any tips would be welcome

    I am sure you are training on the powerlifters program but it is ley to remember the greasing the groove/practicing strength thought whenever you do anything....it is building the mind muscle connection and executing moves that are identical to the lifts...if you do pushups use the exact same form in keeping your arms and shoulders in the same position. if you air squat set your feet and knees te same way...etc....this is the mindset of Russian lifters and it is good

    I don't lift heavy I train for aesthetics

    It will sound vain but I'd prefer to look good rather than be injured all the time

    Yeah he's basically calling the shots.. He's old school and an absolute beast... He's 60 and can bench 180kg

    One thing I'm still getting used to is how your mood can effect a workout... I work 6 days a week and try and get sleep and eat as much good food as I can but some days you just don't feel it and other days you feel like you will smash everything you do and everything feels right... The week after I hit the 127.5 on bench I got bodied by 125 lol

    Good point....I know a lot of lifters will take an energy booster before going to the gym

    I would also keep a log if you are serious about gaining strength about what foods, quantities, sleep and gym performance etc....there will be a combination of situations you should be able to determine the things that are taking away from your performance and what is adding to it
