I am trying to start deadlifts/power lifts and squats
Was wondering what is a safe way to start...
Deadlifts I have no idea how to measure whats a safe and good weight to start out,
Im 170cm height and 55kg weight -if this helps
I understand good posture but would like to know how to gage weight
Also how do I add weight while squatting -
I have a small home gym, no squat cage yet
Lol...pick it up...th only way to gauge it is by lifting it...ur weight doesn't matter some really small guys can lift some serious weight and vice versa a training log and trail and error always worked for me
Oh champion thanks for this info mate thanks to both of you for the help appreciated
I would suggest you find a weight you can do 3 sets of 5 reps on the squat. Go trough the motion and work on technique.
For deadlifts, keep the reps low aswell. I would suggest you start with 3 warm up sets of 5 reps. Work your way up with the weight towards your working sets. Do 1 set of 5 reps on your max. If you need to stop and get ur form back on, do this. Never any need to hurry. If you feel good do another set of 5 or 3 reps.
Its a thing of starting out and finding out. Goodluck.
