Yea some days I have to just take a break from eating. I'm up to ~3500 cals on some days now, but like today I'm hungover and prob wont do much but kill some wings for the game and maybe make some granola. I have zero fears about cutting because it's a struggle to add weight

Nice to see some body recomp progress. 

I will upload some pics when I've hit my weight goal. Have another 12 pounds to gain which I'm aiming to hit it around summer. 

 

 

Went to the meet yesterday. Didn't get any good video and I only stayed for bench anyway, so not much to show. Squats and deadlifts are much more fun to watch imo.

What really surprised me was how many people was there, both in terms of lifters and spectators, esp for a club in smaller city.

 

When you only lift at a regular "fitness gym" you forget that there actually is people out there who trains seriously for strength, or at least I missed it.

Maybe the situation is different in the states, but in Sweden you pretty much never meet anyone who competes in strength sports in their free time. I think we have the highest rates of people caring about their health and fitness in the world, but thats not the same thing. Still, we have a lot of good lifters in the country when you look into it.

 

Just at this small local meet, there were 10+ guys who benched over three plates and deadlifted in the 600s. One girl got 250 on the bench, equipped though, but still very impressive.

I understand its a very niche interest but its cool to me that some old guy is handling the speaker thing and another dude is giving the signals for each lift, probably with no compensation and on their free time.

it's the same this side of the bothnia as well. in strength sports there's very little money involved, especially in the coaching sector. my coach who's regularly at the WWC, EWC and wherever our lifters compete in gets nothing in compensation.

seriously though if I wouldn't have found weightlifting I probably would have stopped lifting a long time ago. I find the vapidness of bodybuilding and all this shit extremely high.

before you go all apeshit on me, I'm not putting down people who do it, I just personally find little in it to interest me.

also back on ibuprofen 2400mg/d fml

I kind of agree with this (if I understand you correctly).

 

You probably notice by my posts that I read a lot about the technical aspects and theories related to lifting, diet, mobility and that sort of stuff.

I have to keep myself intellectually stimulated (in lack of better explanation) in whatever hobby I have or I'll lose interest. Maybe a reason to why all the russian programs with intensity percentages and specific macro manipulations in my diet interests me.

 

I have a hard time to just "go and lift" because I simply don't find that approach very engaging.

IDK I just love to lift. I look like shit right now, at least shirtless... but I definitely enjoy lifting heavy shit for no other reason than seeing if I can lift more today than I did last week. Doesn't hurt that I can see the fruits of my labor outside in the mirror too. I love the technical aspects of it, if for no other reason than that I get to make fun spreadsheets.... but at the end of the day, it's about lifting heavy shit and being a big motherfucker for me.

I lift so I can eventually reach my goal:

Woke up early to train. Hit a DL rep PR. Came home and ate myself into a coma. Gonna take a power nap until the game starts. Good feels.

Of course the actual lifting is what I enjoy the most. I'm just saying that learning new stuff keeps it from getting stale. Its more that I can't identify myself with the meathead mentality, but I don't think I'm alone in that either.

I enjoy some of the technical and deeper aspects of lifting too since most of the time it translates into some technique revelation for me and I end up crushing a PR. At the core of it though I'm the guy that just enjoys seeing some huge weight move through nothing more than the human body and determination.

I'm sorry, but that is blatantly wrong, success is never guaranteed, there's a lot of luck in there as well.




Need to get going on my cut, but can't get my ass in gear. shog[1].gif
