Default Time to grow

So, back at it again gonna start fresh with a new thread. Currently running 5x5, probably smolov next. I plan on sticking to powerlifting for a good while now, hopefully enter a comp soon. As of now my maxes are something liek this

Bench=280
Squat=390
Deadlift=455

I just wanna double them all lol nbd. Anyway follow along, it should be interesting.

Here's my lifts for this week. Im going pretty conservative on deadlifts and squats since its been a while since ive done both religiously and last time I ran 5x5 I jumped weight too quick.

Monday-
Bench-ramped
135x5
165x5
195x5
215x5
235x5

squat-straight
315 5x5

Row-lower back was killing me bc I deadlifted saturday so I just did 5x5 with 135. I was supposed to work up to 240x5 I believe

Hyperextensions

Weighted decline sit ups

Tuesday

Military press-135 5x5

Deadlift 335 5x5

Squat-245 5x5

skipped out on chins

4 sets of 25 sit ups

missed my lift friday unfortunately somethin came up. I was just going to do it saturday but I figured there is no reason to push everything a day forward when I can just do the monday lift and stay on task. Anyway ill be goin for 240x5 on monday which could be a pr, ik 245x5 will be. Squats are starting to get heavy for me again as well. Anyway know about upcoming competitions around ny/pa area.

today kinda sucked but was ok at the same time. I lifted by myself, partners were busy. Which started the badness bc I was going for 245x5 on bench which is near a max for sure, I may have been able to get the fifth rep but didnt have a spot so I racked after the fourth. I def started too heavy on bench though bc there is tons of room for improvement onsquat and deadlift before i plateau. Also I got through squat fairly easy, it felt like I was just drained for some reason thought about quitting several times but made it through all five set. Anyway here's what happened.

Bench
135x5
175x5
205x5
225x5
245x4

Squat
330 5x5

Row
135x5
185x5
205x5
225x5
245x5

skipped weighted sit ups and hyperextensions, ill get my core work done at mma in about an hour.
