Each of them alone would add at least tens of pounds on your lift. It's been said that all the gear pro powerlifters (above-mentioned plus wraps, pads, their singlet, etc) use can actually add a couple hundred pounds to their best lifts. Even without the gear though, those weights are amazing! I'm honestly still in awe of your raw 495.

I started deadlifting 90lbs.

In a couple of weeks, that was up to about 250lbs. And slowly over the last year and a half or two its just kept going up and up.
Yeah, I've been thinking of getting a belt, just to make sure everything is compact and tight, and possibly prevent injury on those big lifts.

I've found pyramid sets helped me the most with squats and deadlifts.

My GF recently actually convinced me to take progress pictures, and I have to say, its made me even more motivated. Not that I needed much more, since I've been going the last 3 or so years, but its definitely a new thing that keeps me striving for better. I'd post some progress pictures, but I feel only scrutiny and bad things would come from it on this forum.

I'd be lucky to break 350 in a year and a half.

Well, I did a couple pages back and no one gave a shit.

Wow though, I'm starting to think whether I took my progressions really slow or you're just that naturally strong. I started with 50 2 years ago but then found out I was doing them all wrong. I only really started doing good deads when I hit 165 last year around the same time. Cycled them in and out of what I do and just last June got a new set of weights so I decided to bring my lift up.

Have you read Power to the People by Pavel Tsatsouline? It's not that long a read and some people get irritated with his Evil Russian persona (I think it's hilarious though) but it has a lot of good stuff pertaining how use muscle tension to squeeze every bit of strength you have in a lift and also to lift injury-free, gear-free.

I don't think your progress would be slow, it might just be because I'm a bigger guy at 6'3 and heavier? All kind of proportional, and I've always found my back workouts have progressed rather quickly.

My chest on the other hand is a different story. Took me forever to get over certain plateaus. Starting deadlifting all that time back actually helped me get over some of the chest plateaus.

Anyone know of any good circuits for cardio? Without weights preferred, moving around a commercial gym can get tough so i'll be doing circuits at home.

^ Travis Stoetzel has awesome conditioning circuits/finishers that he calls "Thursday Throwdowns" on his channel and blog. Search up his name or "getitdonefitness" on YouTube.

I'm 6'0 172, which is awesome for me having come from 158 last March. I also do find that pulls/pulling muscle are much easier for me to load up on that presses/pressing muscles but I do stick to a weight until I feel it get significantly lighter. And I remember reading somewhere that there's a certain inhibition mechanism in muscles that tries its darnedst to restrict a muscle from getting "too strong" as opposed to its antagonist, so maybe that's what happened to you.

Just put up 300 lbs on the bench today (10 reps - I weigh 165). First time I tried anything above 250 and was surprised at being able to do it without too much trouble, meaning I probably should have been able to do it weeks ago. I used to always work out hard but I never pushed myself like I have been the past 2-3 months and I'm seeing really good results. I'm more ripped and stronger than I've ever been and weigh 25 lbs less than I did a few months ago. I think using Krealkalyn has contributed quite a bit as well.

Any idea how I could gain 14 pounds in 9 months without the use of weights?

I've gotten lazy. I went from 183 to 202 the last 2 months. I got back on my health kick today...

Losing the weight isn't the problem, it's the belly fat. I know you can't "target" belly fat per say, obviously you have to build ab muscles to get ab muscles when you lose the fat, but does anyone know of any methods to help get rid of the belly fat?

I heard eating a lot of fiber helps with this? If so how much? The daily intake is like 35-40 grams per day I thought?

I've had a medium sized breakfast and big dinner (probably 500 and 1200 calories) for the last 3 weeks respectively during finals and shot up from 158 - 171 lbs.

What the f*ck? When I eat 4,000 cals I can't seem to gain a single pound. Something's up, and all this sudden weight gain. I"ve come to realize that I simply do not have the genetics, effort, or time to become big and bulky. So fukk it. God bless the bodybuilders in here and those who gain muscle easily kudos! Now it's time for a nice blend of flexibility, power, strength, and endurance.
I can still get a few inches past my forearm on the rim at 5'11" without any vert training. I can still run a mile under 6:15. and I can still deadlift in the mid 400's pretty smoothly good form no chalk. Time to ante up.

Doing Convict Conditioning right now mixed with some iron work.
Sunday:
Pistol Squat: Pyramid up to 5 reps.
Elevated Diamond PUshups: Pyramid Up to 7 reps.
Back Bridges: Pyramid up to 3 reps.
Sets of 5.

Feel an awesome pump. Not bad for 15 minutes and no equipment. May make this a staple. Skipping the gym and all those calories gives time, money, and mobility to be spent travelling and getting that $$$ and going out more often. God knows I could use that.

Tomorrow, aiming for 15 rock solid fast hill sprints.

Day after.
Deadlifts
Weighted Chins
and Military Press.

Keeping it simple and getting steady gains.

Gonna try to add more green veggies. They seem to have an incredible effect on the brain. Writing is coming out more lucid, fluid, and pleasant to read.

Like you mentioned, there is no way to spot-reduce fat. For some people, as skinny as they get, the belly fat sticks around. The only way I know of to reduce it as much as possible is to keep your diet healthy (lots of fruits, veggies, fiber, etc.) and keep working on the abdominals. Some people have a harder time getting rid of belly fat than others, so if you can't then don't worry too much about it.

We'll, I'm going to be doing a pretty good diet. Lots of fruits and vegetables to snack on during the day. Then on my bigger snacks multi-grain whole wheat bread with natural peanut butter, lean chicken. I found some Kashi cereal "Go Lean" that has 10g of fiber 13g of protein per serving, which which is double/triple to most cereals.

I'm going to try to incorporate as much fiber as I can in my diet.

A couple months of pull-ups, push-ups, pike push-ups/handstand push-ups (which I can't do yet either ), and hill sprints should do you good. If you don't know where to start, signing up for Zach Even-Esh newsletter would be good. He gets pretty intense and mostly does inspirational videos now, but it's all good plus he gives you a free guide to "bodyweight bodybuilding." I haven't tried following it to the T but a lot of stuff I do is similar (ladders, timed density sets, etc) and worked for me on a number of movements.

Oh, and EAT. I suggest you eat your HEAVIEST, BIGGEST meals at night. Have something light for breakfast. A couple eggs, some bacon, maybe an apple, but stock up on all the rice and starchy stuff at night before you sleep (which you should be doing before 12 at the very least).

I swear I've answered you a couple of times already before, but hey, whatever it takes to get you there, too.
