Like, can you still say you have a 1,000 total if you never tried doing them consecutively. Random thing that I wondered.

My understanding was separate days is fine and bench didn't need to be paused.

My training total is 980 right now and my training #s are usually around 90% actual maxes.

I got all year, no rush shog[1].gif I won't be hitting heavy singles until I decide to do a meet, so there's a good chance the total might be with rep sets.

edit; There's also a chance I'll hurt myself and won't be totaling shit this year

Yeah idm if he does them on separate days. It's because I didn't think he could add 200 lbs to his total in a year, so I made the bet.

Got 405 on deadlift today, personal best. Don't use belts for deadlift anymore, fine without it. Also the program I posted a while back was Greg Plitt's MFT28. Did it for two days with my friend who is trying to shed some el bees. I think the program is horseshit, just way too much. Worked out for 3 hours on chest day and still didn't get everything, definitely over training, program is ideal for the unemployed. My friend's going to stick with it apparently.

Nice. I hit 405 a few times in the summer and then fell off the wagon. Now 315 feels heavy frown.gif

hit last year, switched to gym with hex plates and 425 feels like 500. Teekay inspired me to start pulling sumo again so that number should shoot up nicely.

On the note of progress this year here's what I did for 1RMs compared to the peak of my bulk last year.

Bench(no pause): 290 --> 310
Squat: 405 --> 445
Deadlift: 445 --> 495
Total: 1140 --> 1250

Obviously those aren't in meets and aren't anywhere close to "perfect form".

If your 1rms are perfect form they probably aren't really 1rns.

That has to be the most ridiculous program I've ever seen. Blows my mind that this shit still gets put out.

You can't deny that the mainstream bodybuilding / fitness industry is good at fooling people. No wonder people don't see any results when they do stuff like that.

Make smaller weight increments less often than on a bulk.

Is this truth? Will lifts be better preserved on a cut by a low volume / high weight routine vs. higher volume / lower weight? It feels like the latter might at least result in better physique.
post #39552 of 57266
i dont know about lifts being preserved but i looked way better when doing high volume with lower weights when cutting.

conventional e-lifting wisdom says stick with low volume when cutting, but IME big strong lifts that you need to get psyched up for are what drain me and impede progress, even moreso on a deficit. cruising through some 3x10, 3x10, 3x10 is a little easier on the brain and a little nicer in the mirror.

I think the best results will come from utilizing both, I'm cutting now and I'm keeping all big compound lifts 5x5 with heavier weight, squats, deadlifr, bench and OHP, then I'm doing 3x8-10 with accesories at a lighter weight
