I'm following something westsidish. Depending on how I feel for my max effort day I work up to a 5, 3, or 1 rep max and then hit five singles within 90% of the estimated or actual max then hit my weaknesses with assistance. On DE day I do heavy assistance work. Look at my log if you want a better idea of what that all means.

I cant find the 600 dl race thread i was in so i guess ill join in here, at least for DL. best so far was a 555 dl about 6 months ago. then went through a diet and had a back injury so i havent had too much progress.
Suppose I'll get in on this. Like critietaeta, I was in the other 600DL thread but why not join here. A 600 wrapped squat is one of my lifetime goals. 505/545 are my best squat/dead right now.
Tried training with sub-max, higher volume for a while and that didn't do anything for my 1RM. The plan is to experiment with reverse band stuff for a while. Squat and dead once per week: one week heavy squat and DL reps, next week heavy DL and squat reps.
I would like to get 515 w/o wraps by, say, August (or before jakerz, whichever comes first lol) and then work on pushing a wrapped squat above 545 by the end of the year. 495 being my best squat w/o wraps.

I was in the last one too, but since DF is in here I'm joining so I can show him how I beat him to a 600 pull. I'm going fully geared. Got my first meet in June, going for a 650 squat and 600 pull.
Last pull from the floor, got 595 but didn't lockout the hips.
.......unless I missed something, a non locked out 595 =/= 600.
10,000 miles away on squat but I managed to pull (and drop at 99%) 270kg deadlift. Left hand let me down so i'll join for the deadlift, I need 6lb and a better grip lol
Heres the story... 270 would have been a 10kg PR, i was gonna do 260 to play it safe cus like a homo i'd been using straps in training a little too much but someone convinced me to go straight for 270... some random dude I met yesterday :))) see above
