Well yeah if gains per day is x

∑x of x=0 to x=30 =28 so E(x)= ~1

but im guessing a lot of it happened in the initial days right after starting bulking again so

∑(x-X)^2 x=0 to x=30 is probably pretty big.

Might have to switch to mixed DL grip.  Can barely hang on @ 265 (holding it in the tips of my fingers).

Don't switch to mixed grip yet, try to get to at least 3 plates first.

Just work on your grip strength, farmers walk, hang on a pull up bar with an overhand grip for as long you can, when you deadlift weights lighter than 265 grip it at the top for as long as you can. etc.

Or switch to a mixed grip/straps and train grip separately so your not holding back your deadlift, working on a very small part of it. I wouldn't worry about trying to deadlift double overhand, as your deadlift goes up your never going to be able to keep your double overhand grip as strong. People struggle to keep their mixed grip as strong. I have no idea what im maxing at now a days, I pulled 455 back in december, I can maybe hold 315 for a rep or 2 double overhand.

Well I'm on a cut still, so I'm not sure how much grip improvement I'll get and right now it's the limiting factor.  I'll probably try to warm up with overhand and maybe do a deload with a bit less weight but overhand grip.

charly uses a hook grip, which is different then just double overhand, in fact it's stronger then mixed. I doubt charly could double overhand like 700lb or whatever it is he's pulling now adays. You shouldn't let your grip limit how much you can pull.

Isn't that with a hook grip though?

 

Fuji:

28 pounds in a month is pretty insane, but since you went from  a no carb to high carb diet, 10 pounds or so could prob be water.

You could gain slower if you want to get a better rate of muscle to fat gain because there's no way your getting 50/50 at that rate. But you know this and I guess you chose to put on weight fast. And yeah, you prob have another 20 pounds left on this bulk, but then you could be north of 16-17%.

post #41097 of 57264
Yeah definitely a lot of glycogen and water, but fat gains have been very minimal. I'm not exactly shredded here



you can't really see much obviously, im leaner then I am now, but not massively. Dat feel when only myfibriol hypertrophy. Me and my friends have started an LSE barbell society, getting funding from the uni and errything. Gonna have apparel and shit, we're even gonna be in the athletics union even though none of us are actually competitive. Some of the people wanted to call it aesthetics society, but it wouldn't make sense since some of the members are quite ugly. It's just gonna be 20 awkward asians shouting misc memes in the gym at each other in phaggy time t shirts. What should we spend our funding on? Gonna run for president of it obvs.

Completely agree.

And yes, it's a hook grip like fuji says. Much stronger than a double over and stronger than a mixed.

I should say fasted training. When I first started it up again, it went OK for a while. Then DST threw my sleep out of whack and I just started to get super hungry in the morning. I started eating a decent size pre WO meal and now I'm back to normal. I think restricted feeding windows are still a good way to maintain satiety in a deficit though.

Don't short change yourself on your grip strength, though; hook helps a lot but it still takes a strong grasp when you're moving big weight.
