LevFin is a group in IBD that primarily structures high yield debt and bank loans for LBOs, Refinancings, Acquisitions etc.  Pretty prestigious group, less pitch work, more executing deals in most cases.  Good exit ops.

Got a referral to the university sports medicine clinic finally, hopefully they can sort this shit out. Front squats Dont seem to bother the elbow too much so it's just them, deadlifts and shrugs for the next while I guess.

Also want to cut but even after tuning in diet a little, ive remembered why I Dont like cutting: I get ravenously stupid hungry. frown.gif

The annual meeting at the PL club was today.

Learnt that this is my last year as a junior lifter in IPF, and after that I will be a senior which will have me qualifying for the district series.

 

You have to sign up for all meets of the year according to the club policy, if you want to lift for them and get a lifters license for IPF. Problem is that the next meet is in just a month which doesn't leave enough room for prep and peaking. I'm not mentally ready for that either. My lifts are low but I don't care about that. 

 

Had initially planned to bulk up until fall and do a meet then. Looks like I'll have to wait until next year but that'll also have me qualifying.

No idea what numbers are required to pass the qualification but I'll just take this whole year to try to put on some quality mass. Guys at the club told me I should ideally be in the -120kg class for my height to be competitive :o

How long did it take for you to get from a 275 to 400 squat?

yeah, it's about the same in weightlifting too (generally). Guys over 5'10-11" are either 105s or supers. I'm 5'8" and I thought my coach was kidding when I asked him what class I'd be if I'd be really competitive and he said probably a -94

Funny, that anthropometry stuff. I'd love to be a super but then I might have no business on SF. I had average/abv avg results as an 85 in the couple nonofficial meets Ive done. I just wanna look real small and throw a guy twice my size out the window in a bar fight.

I support your reenactment of Road House.

straight arm lifting is kinda fun. today was flyes, pullovers, crossovers, lateral raise, band pullapart, horizontal cable shrugs. finished off with prowler pushing which i have never done, fuck my lungs. that sucked nuts. i was hacking up a lung the whole ride home.

even though this is probably throwing you off in the short term, i think it is probably an awesome thing for you as a lifter in general. outliers and your environment and all that. dunno about charlie but i went from "starting over" at 225x5,5 in may/june to 385x1 last month.

chances are you'll probably outpace most people itt given that you'll be surrounded by people who have done the work and are continuing to do the work instead of endless and incessant hand-wringing over the ultimate program for max gainz. kind of like a hive-mind for lifting i guess. like i said before, super jelly.

Thanks man.

That's some really good progress you've made.

I did 235 for 5x5 squats yesterday and I think my max is around 275 now, so pretty equal to your situation. Aiming to hit 315 by June and then at least 375 for feb next year when the series start. 1.5-2 pound / week increase on 1RM is pretty doable, right?

Yeah, I think its better to step back a bit and just focus on getting stronger and learn as much as I can from the guys at the gym. I would be super stressed now if I would do a meet in a month all of a sudden.

I can already say that its way more motivating to lift at this place than the random commercial gym I went to before. You really start to push yourself when everyone has the same attitude towards training and are stronger than you. The guy I've spoken to the most is only 17 and he squatted 340 for an easy triple today. Makes you think how shitty you trained when you were in that age.

Seems like a lot of PLers in Sweden like very high frequency percentage based programs built around just the 3 lifts and versions of them, sort of how the Norwegian, eastern european and russian teams train. US powerlifters seem to have more of a powerbuilding approach with more non specific accessory work and a larger focus on building the muscles of the lift rather than training the movements as skills. Broad generalizations of course.

I don't really remember to be honest.

Took me about a year to get from 380-ish to 430 though.

Btw, just finished lifting with TeeKay.

Laid back and nice guy! 9/10 cause of pointy elbows. Would lift again.



But really, cheers.gif

Damn I was hoping that 135-300 was a year then 300-400 would take me a little under a year.

So I signed up for some random wellness 90 day challenge thing at a health fair my girlfriend's employer put on. Basically you get put into teams to support each other on their goals, with one or two people from the company acting as "team leaders" to support everyone. I was the only one that put weight gain down, and apparently this dude is my team lead hahahaha. What luck.

Could be. Everyone's different.

I went from 550 to 635 in about 5-6 months.

Is there a certain max amount of time between sets you should be taking? I've been able to make linear progress with my lifts but I'm resting probably 3-4 minutes for working sets.
