Yea, sorry I made it confusing. I didn't want to post everything because it was alot to type, it isn't all that important, and my friend sells programs like this to people so I don't want to give all the info out.

But I was definitely doing more than just 1 set. 5-7 sets at the beginning of the week and about 3 sets towards the end of the week. Plus at the lower percentages, less rest was used. So if its 70%, it would be only 30 secs rest, if its 80% it would be only 60 secs rest.

So I had around 15 work sets on squat, 20 work sets on bench, and 10-15 work sets on deadlift a week plus the military press work and back work I would throw in some days.

The deadlift set up was based on this table.
"Strength is the product of struggle, you must do what others don't to achieve what others won't."
Competition PRs-
Squat: 463 Bench: 275 Deadlift: 529 Total: 1262
