    Cheers for the rep :-)

    I thought you were still following that program? If you are, then you should stick with the prescribed reps for squat and leg press - just push progression. And yes, free weight is better. You should be doing either seated, or standing, Military Press with a barbell.

    You don't have to do any more reps with bench or row, keep at the prescribed reps. Aim for 5lbs a week, maybe. MP is one of the hardest lifts to progress at so don't get discouraged. I do mine seated because it's a lot more stable and you can focus more on the press than on your balance of standing.

    Like I said you can keep your upper body weights where they are, then just pound progression of your legs until you feel as though it's where it should be. 5-10lbs a week should be good that's about the rate I forced my progress.

    Your numbers are fine, man - yeah they seem uneven but that kind of "muscle imbalance" occurs everywhere in the body. You can correct easily - just work hard at areas you feel you're weakest at. They come from whatever you were doing prior to now. Unintentionally favoring certain body parts over others and neglecting to work hard all across the board.

    If you want to increase your squat - keep squatting and pushing your progression, you'll find that that will increase more rapidly than say bench and rows. Military Press will most likely progress the slowest, but that's normal for everyone. If you want to increase it though - you have to keep pressing.

    If you really wanted to, you could ease off on all the areas your feel you are strongest at and focus more on improving your weakest. I'm not saying don't work your strong areas hard, perhaps tone down the numbers and then increase them proportionately (as you see) as your other lifts progress.

    If you want to focus on your squat, because your bench is so strong, you could dial it down some (say to 175-200) and move your row to 150-170) and keep your MP and squat the same. Then once they move up, move up bench and row weights. You don't have to do this though.

    You could also just not force progression on those lifts, just keep lifting the same weight and weight for the other lifts to play catch up until you feel as though they are proportionately correct for your goals.

    There is by no means anything wrong with you.
