Life is better than ever and I am sure things are only going to get more fun. My body goal is to take women's breath away when I take off my shirt (think Achilles from Troy). This is multi-year project which will require more discipline than ever, especially now that life is getting more fun which leads me to be more comfortable than I prefer. I think the body fat percentage here should be around 6-8%. This post is about the lifts required for this goal.
Here's where I am at with the lifts (started with the bar last year with zero foundation of strength):
Squat: 245 - could grow this but need to improve form so I don't get wrecked
Deadlift: 265 - could grow this but need to improve form so I don't get wrecked
Overhead Press: 100 - stuck around here and am wobbly
Bench: 145 - stuck around here and am wobbly
After the last year of lifting I think Stronglifts skews towards the lower body and doesn't focus enough on the upper body. I stalled out early on overhead and bench and need to change something up to break the plateau. Any tips?
With my lifts I still don't believe I am even at the first milestone I should be at. Looking for some estimated lift weights for milestones to set some expectations for myself.
Milestone 1 - foundation of strength gained, non trivial lifts <- I am getting closer to this but don't think I am here yet
Milestone 2 - intermediate, halfway to milestone 3
Milestone 3 - master - diminishing returns after this, risk of injury high enough to not warrant adding weight
