Keep yo ego in check and that shouldn't happen :P. Also safetys bars bro. Happened to me last week since I was on a bench w/o safeties, had to be saved by another gym goer. Taught me a few things about what to realistically expect out of myself.
I naturally gravitated towards the big 4 cause the idea of being strong resonates well with those moves. Which in turn got me interested in Powerlifting competitively and Strongman.
You're doing excellent for your age, which is honestly one of the best times to start lifting. I started powerlifting in late December, but I was just going with flow and feel until sometime in February or March, I started using more hard numbers and a certain number of sets. Better results, and more fulfilling workout that doesn't leave the ego bruised when i don't attempt prs.
Tbh I didn't bench or squat for a long time because those are probably the scariest exercises. There's always that fear that the bar will come down on your chest (which has happened to me before, and it's pretty scary) and you won't be able to get it off. That's why my compound lifts are relatively low considering that I've been training for a little over a year (though honestly I didn't know how to effectively train until like January lmao). You're so far ahead of the game though, it's good that your focusing on lifting heavier rather than only looking better.
My goals at first were mainly to just get bigger and look good, but I learned that aesthetics is all subjective and relatively superficial. My goals now kind of evolved from that into just lifting heavier on every exercise, because the good looks and size come with that.
