Forget 315 or even 400. Eight 45's, four on each side. Let's get there this year.

That was 320x2. Sorry it was sideways.

I'm in. My squat is around 365 right now I'm guesstimating. I want to get 405 below parallel before my birthday in november.

Here's a vid from december 2011 of 315x5:

This has been one of the biggest goals of my training life and I finally hit it two weeks ago. Talk about nervous.

Best squat is 360 ATG, hoping to hit 375 or higher in about 2.5 weeks.

I am in, not even close right now, max of 300 but that is almost completely untrained. I lost my job (well 2 weeks left) and won't be employed again at least for a few weeks after that and just got lifting shoes. Squatting at least 5x a week while i am unemployed. Getting to 365 by June and 405 by September. 6'5 240. I am finally committing and leaving no doubt about this.

Just got 405 about 3 weeks ago. I switched from 531 to RTS and it seems to be working for me. I PRd in all 3 lifts and had a few PRs in assistance lifts.

Lol, amazin', I just hit 155kg on Friday 9th at like 84kg bodyweight so pretty much identical. Looks like me and you got a real race on our hands!

Sure have. I'm hitting up smolov intense for the next 3 weeks so I'm hoping to hit well over 160kg after it, closer to 170kg would be sweet!

Looks like you can get in on the 3 horse English race.. I can't hit 405 though where I train though with the plates.. just 180/397, 182.5/402, 185/408. 4 plates will feel so good when it falls..

I've been working with RTS as well and have gone from 365 to 405 so far.

Good luck bro! I have the same problem with plates. Gonna aim to hit 4 English plates then I'm thinking I'll have to get 185kg to feel like I "really" got 4 plates. lol.

But next stop right now is 160... Seems to be a bigger mental barrier than 155.

I know right.. we're at a mental disadvantage over here..

Let's blast past 160kg.. these are still baby weights compared to what we can no doubt handle

What programs are you all using to get to 405?
I'm currently on my second run of Sheiko #29.
