Default Bench Press, dead lift, and squat

I will be honest with you guys. Here are numbers with proper form:

Bench press: 290lbs

Squat: 370lbs

Dead lift: 405lbs

I just recently found out (a few weeks ago) that my dead lift and squat forms were messed up. So, I had to start fresh and then build up with the proper form. For squat, I never did "Ass to grass" because I was told that going deep wasn't necessary. For dead lift, my form was bad because my foot placement was not correct, my hand placement, and I did not drop my butt. Even though I was lifting 400lbs+, my dead lift form was not correct.

Does anyone else have trouble with their form?

P.S. I know my bench press is low and that's because I had to start fresh with proper form.

Odd to be able to deadlift more than you're squatting.

It's far easier to cheat Squat than it is to do the same with deadlift.

300lb bench is not low either. with strict form it's a decent weight to rep for a normal person.
Average person is not even unracking 300lb, let alone repping it.

Cracks me up in the gym watching people 1 rep 300+ with a massive arch in their back looking proper fucked up lol.

Lol. Doesn't the arch subtracts between 15lbs-20lbs off the weight?

For deadlift you're pulling weight straight from the floor, takes good grip strength and full body strength to deadlift 400+ for reps with strict form.

With squats once you've unracked most people don't ass to the grass the weight, same cheat as arched bench press, no where near as much range of motion so you can push way more weight.

You'll see people say arched back isn't cheating yourself but it is, it's called Flat Barbell Press for a reason.

I've seen people squat 500 with shit form.
same person would never be able to squat 400 with proper form.

It's just ego lifting.

Lifting that will end up with them snapping their shit up real bad in later life.

Thanks.

Removes a massive amount of range of motion. I've seen people benching to chest that works out at like 2-3 inchs of travel lol..


If any of you guys are going to the gym and doing that.. please don't.. lmfao

^Ouch. That form looks painful. I've never seen anyone in the gym doing that.

Is the leg press a useless excercise in your opinion?
Everyone says I'm wasting my time with it but it's a satisfying workout. Feels like it also works my core heavy.

Leg press is very good as a leg warm down. Or to build weak legs up.. but you should never really use leg press as your primary way to work your legs.

if you have weak knees, using leg press with your feet placed like \ / will strengthen your vastus medialis oblique.

Squats and deadlifts are your go to exercises for strength, size and overall function of your legs and core. chuck in farmers walks for another brilliant way for overall body conditioning and strength building also added bonus of probably the best way to build insane grip strength. Something which many people I've trained with over the years seem to neglect.

Infact, Squats, Deadlifts, Shoulder press, Farmers walks, Flat and Incline Bench, Bent over Barbell and Dumbbell rows, is all you really need. Chuck in preacher curls, lateral tricep extension and Shrugs for excellent arm and trap isolation.

Hmm. It seems like I've reached a plateau in terms of strength. Has anyone experienced this before?

take 7 to 10 days off.

no weight training at all. cardio is fine.

Eat lots. good proteins, good fats, keep to high fiber carbs

if that doesnt help you, read up on drop sets.

9 times out of 10, 7-10 days rest + good protein and fat re-freed will sort you out.

Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a shot.
