Lol.
Once a week, I do a giant set of 4-5 sets each of high rep tricep ext supersetted with bicep curls with barely any rest in between for ultimate bro-yness.

It absolutely meant for arm hypertrophy but also for keeping the elbows healthy.

Imo, a powerlifter do not need to spend a ton of time on tricep ext and leg extensions although they certainly have their place in the routine as a whole. I do those regularily too, but I have more focus on lifts that mimic the competition lifts and that target my specific weaknesses in those

not present: curls, lat raises, flyes, extra upper body training volume generally.

Doesn't make a huge difference in training sure but makes a big difference in how you look.

which makes this part make no sense:

By all means lift for strength but this neckbeard of mentality is "i train PL so all my training is about strength also look better than people who train for bb and also people who train bb are narcissists afraid to lift heavy or do real work" reeks of insecure-internet-nerdery, especially because most of them look like shit with guts and stick arms or fatceps (this phenom seen very often on /fit/ and r/fitness)

Meet is going to be Nov 1, time to devise a plan I guess. I like being 175-185 but it would be sweet to puff up to 198lbs or so, then just loose 10 lbs after the meet. I think I'm just going to take my #s I did last year and add 50lbs to the squat, 50lbs to dead, 35lbs to bench and work backwards from there.

i only pick on powerlifting because most people here suck at it and their 1 rep max is like my warm up set

Most people here have been training for like 2 years.

Diet question: I've only cut using the LG protocol but honestly it's kind of slow because every second or third day is a training day with maintenance calories. Can I keep calories low on training days as well and just re-carb at certain intervals? (Re-feeds etc.)

Aware me plz

I'd ask first.. what are you trying to achieve with your diet? Gain weight? Or lose weight?
post #45459 of 57256
lose just a bit of fat, maintain muscle, standard get-cut for summer stuff.

even though i shit on conceptionist a lot i'm taking his advice and trying a full body routine 3x a week using movements that won't aggrivate my shoulder.

Right now it's:

Incline DB Press
DB Row
Weighted Pull-up
Overhead DB Press
Tricep Push down
Face Pull
Hack squat machine
Leg Press

All in the 3x8-12 range.

+Planks (3xf)

+Shoulder Physical therapy. band stuff

You may want to rethink this part because lose fat + maintain muscle = dreaming smile.gif

Just eat a bit below your maintenance and proper macros.. no need for all this LG stuff.
post #45461 of 57256
ofc. Maintain as much muscle as possible.

For that approach, I generally like a 40/25/35 split with about 3-500 below maintenance. To start.
post #45463 of 57256
that's what i do on rest days. the lg protocol just has high-carb days with no defecit on days you workout but I'm thinking of just blowing that off and only recarbing when i feel like i need it.
