i dont go higher than 405 nowdays, and thats once in a blue moon.....how much weight was on the bar was never my priority..my legs always responded better to higher reps anyways , from 15 and up..i always put more i attention how the weight is lifted , feel it than to actually how much is lifted..im not ,never was an ego trainer.
do you think it's important to get very strong on lifts to make progression in physique?
i have trained heavy for years but now i am trying the whole, lift light and use high reps and mind muscle connection thing, too early to tell but i do like training a hell of a lot more
like, do you think it would be ok for me to squat 225 "forever" and still have a badass physique? and never touch the flat bench again? or never deadlift again? or do you think there are certain "milestones" that everyone must reach to have a good physique? like "Everyone must bench 405, squat 500, and deadlift 600 to attain any kind of good physique"
i must say though, that as a natural training for strength got me a lot bigger, but in the end i was still never big. i went from 115-170 kind of bloofy and not impressive in a t shirt
