That would be a good weight for me too, I can hang around 187 prior to my meets then taper back to a 182 or for meet day.

 

Edit: wrote a long post but realized I barely replied to Coldsnap.

 

What I was trying to say is that if you have 4 months to gain, you should spend most of that time bulking since you gain more muscle on a controlled bulk than you lose muscle on a good cut. I think 12 weeks is too short to go up 12 pounds and then drop down to the same bf%. 4 months = 17 weeks, you could bulk 12 pounds for 12 pounds gained, maintenance 2-4 weeks and then cut. You prob won't be able to cut down to the same bodyfat as pre-bulk in only 3 weeks.

 

I wouldn't do drastic cuts as a powerlifter though. Those cuts often lead to strength losses, which a BBer can get away with since they don't compete on strength. It would be very bad for the powerlifter. Better to hoover just above your weight class until a couple weeks out and then drop fat slowly and shed water weight the last week, like you wrote.

Spartan Aesthetics. Not bad for not having lifted besides PT for 4 months.

@conceptionist  - ironically, after not bothering me for months, my back/hip has been killing me this week.  I'm hoping it's just DOMS aggravating something after deadlifts + yoga and it's nothing serious.  Skipped squats and had a total bro upper body day today

Sorry to hear that.

Maybe you should try that rehab routine I posted.

Try to see if foam rolling and releasing trigger points in the psoas, QL and erectors make it feel better.

Stretch the quads and hip flexors and stay as active as you can. Walking instead of taking the bike and using a standing desk did wonders for me. Squats and deadlifts today were completely pain free.

Some lolzy stuff happened today.

I emailed my grand dad a photo of my lat spread and this was his reply

" the picture of your back is great, with your height and over two hundred pounds, you are an impressive dude. But I would hasten to remind you that a muscle-bound persona is so retro, Arnold Schwasnegger as Mr. Mr. Atlas was in fashion in the 1960's, now a muscular hunk is out !
Love you.

I guess that's that time to stop lifting, it's not fashion.


Also I've noticed since my uni got the new gym with all the eleiko shit, loads of platforms, racks and squat stands there has been a massive increase in the number of people wearing oly shoes. Even those $170 ugly as fuck reebok ones, like maybe 1/5 people wear them. Also a lot more athlete shit like leggings and putting tape in random places. This is all well and good, but none of these people squat or do oly lifts. Just seeing loads of people in adipowers doing curls.




Saw this guy at the gym today, he was on the stationary bike for about 20 minutes then left. Why are you wearing oly shoes, knee wraps and tights on a stationary bike? Is that not uncomfortable as fuck? I undo my oly shoes between sets because they are so uncomfortable, shit crushes my feet.

My whole lumbar spine on my left side is a big bruise. Think I went a bit over board the past few days with the lacrosse ball, but it feels amazing to work that area since I've been neglecting it so long. Pulled 315 for a fast four, then did some beltless work, pause front squats, and step ups. No complaints from the back or hip.

GungGung is a sweet name.

There is nothing wrong with those^ guys exercising or lifting, it's just gross.
