Well I'm fairly confident I'll take 1st. Not that hard especially if it's a smaller meet and there's like one or two other people in my weight class. Chances are, I'll be the strongest 198'er there. Would be nice to get "best lifter" though.
They're an aggregator of all the feds and keeps up on all the meets and results.. which is why they charge like $24/year for a subscription to the rankings.
What weight class are you? I would be comfortable giving you the TOTAL (not single lifts) #1, #25, and #50 of the top 50 of your weight class. Anymore info, and I'd feel like a scumbag.
Or just sign up, it's only $2/month.
You think so?
I can't do either of them the "perfect way" (too poor ankle flex for proper high bar and shitty low back and hamstring flex for low bar) and sort of just squat how my body wants to. How far do you let the knees travel forward on the low bar squat? I seriously can't keep the knees behind the toes to get that posterior chain activation without rounding my lower back (buttwink).
I can't speak for CarbNite, but the typical Leangains Intermittent Fasting recomp protocol only lets you eat some veggies and fruit on rest days, which usually ends up around 50-70g. I have no problem with the meals and haven't felt lethargic or anything that is commonly associated with low carb diets. However, I've noticed I lack the stamina to push really hard on the compound lifts for several sets. Switched to reverse pyramid training and it works fine.
I was kind of scared about the low carb / no starch days too. Turned out to be no problem. If anything, it only forces you to be more creative with your cooking and not eat the same meals every day. I'm biased though, cause I love sallads.
Pulled 405 and it felt like 225 so i said fuck it and put on 455. Got it like 4 inches off the ground and stalled. that feel
Also, saw a real life troll doll at the gym today

Also love it when euro exchange girls come up to me for squat advice.....too bad my gf is like 10m away.
Also, my shoulder was hurting earlier today. Apparently BW+100 chest dips are good therapy because it doesn't hurt at all anymore.
Hyped for leg day on Wednesday
