post #45361 of 49065
Walking down stairs tomorrow is going to be fuuuunnnn.

Lost 130 off my squat, 50 off bench, and 120 off deadlift. Felt like a bitch wearing squat shoes at those weights when there's a guy in the next rack repping 405.

Hope I can get back to my previous 5RM in 6-8 weeks, then switch up programming so I can cut.

^ Why did you take months off from lifting? And what were your old numbers?

I keep telling Dan I'm trying to get a little of him inside me and then he doesn't talk to me for a week puzzled.gif

But for srs, you'll get there (with a lil help from dat dere)

Also conceptionist's explanation pretty much nailed it for me

Got married in Jan and it just spiraled from there. Didn't enroll in any classes so I lost my "free" gym membership, and I was traveling 3 out of 4 weeks this spring. Tl;dr I was lazy.

My previous maxes are embarrassing:

Squat 285 5x3
Bench 165 5x3
Deadlift 325 5x1

That's after only 6 mos of lifting though... (I only say that to make myself feel better)

Hopefully my body holds up to that. Most people will never reach that class of strength no matter what chemicals you throw at them.

Daniel seems pretty conservative, no? At least from all that god stuff him and his wife post.

Really would like to hit 315 200 365 work sets before I start cutting. 185 might be more realistic on bench though. I have a feeling my bench is going to lag for a while. I have long arms and svelte girlish wrists.

225x4,4,4,4,5 on bench went up pretty easy. I think I might be onto something

Yeah it was actually kind of eye opening. You can take two guys... one guy on gear and the other natty. Both train/eat hard and smart. Both same weight class. And the natty guy can have more size and the bigger total.

Hm, I wouldn't necessarily say that. He's soft spoken and doesn't talk much, but he's got a good sense of humor. If you catch him at the right time tho, he'll talk your ear off about technique or anatomy/biomechanics. Always surprises me with how much he's studied the human body and how much time he's spent experimenting and refining technique. He does chime in here and there, but the majority of his social media presence is handled by his wife.

Ah gotcha. That's good to know. I'm the same way - with technique and biomechanics. Not soft spoken though. TeeKay can vouch for that. I'm pretty fucking loud.

So my plan for the year is:

3-4 months strength focus until I stall. Don't gain weight.

4-5 months - cut to ~12% (likely 20 lbs)

4+ months Aesthetic focus (esp. upper body with my terrible bench numbers) / slow bulk

Thoughts? Criticisms? Is this realistic?

How will u gain strength without gaining weight

And to cut to a real 20lbs u will prob need to cut 30lbs. The water rebound is pretty intense

Otherwise looks OK.

I'm a fat-ass? 20+% body fat.

Cutting 30 lbs. does not excite me.

Had chipotle burritto and a taco then Wendy's burger and chicken sandwich. The bulk is real.
