The Russian powerlifting competition "Battle of Champions" ended a couple days ago.

Only the best lifters, in all weight classes, participate. No drug testing, as every lifter has been tested positive at some point in their career.

4 attempts, only bench and deadlift, no squats. Boris Sheiko is the head judge.

 

Anyway, some insane records was set:

We went to a party yesterday hosted by vegetarians, which is like a nightmare on a holiday such as the 4th. It was OK, though, because some dude with Andre The Giant hands showed up with 17 pounds of pulled pork that had been slow cooking in his oven all night. Those 17 pounds were GONE before even the smallest of side dish dip, pasta salad, not fucking meat dish. Win.

Strong dudes, what do you do if you fail a week in a program? Repeat the week? frown.gif

I reduce the weights by quite a bit and start over, usually with a tiny bit higher volume so my work capacity is larger when I get back to where I failed.

 

Edit: Woops, I don't think I qualify for "strong" yet, but I still think my method would work for most people.

On another note:

 

This is pro bodybuilder Alberto Nunez doing a very accurate bodyfat test.

 

Its pretty surprising that he only has 6% bodyfat, looking that extremely lean.

I guess it shows that mostly people underestimate their bodyfat level and think they're leaner than they really are.

Ya know.. milk is pretty awesome. Just looking at it in a price per calories and macronutrients perspective.

Or it just means that no current method of body fat testing is really that accurate.

A whole weAK? I'd drop all failed lifts by 10% and work back up

I just finished Arnolds biography "Total Recall".

 

The parts about his early years and about his bodybuilding career are surprisingly interesting and captivating, although its def not a literary masterpiece.

The last chapters about his political career and his family life can be skipped.

I have bacon and eggs on toast for breakfast every morning. Is there some low-carb alternative to the toast part?

Low carb tortillas made into chips

I need to keep lifting, but not outgrow my suit for interviews that will happen over the next 6-8 months. I can afford to have it let out/recut armholes once in the next few months. Good times.

This might be good incentive to get on that swimming train and do 3 weight sessions and 2 swimming sessions each week. Partay.

For most people the precision part is probably more important than accuracy, i.e. is the test consistent in respect to itself so one can accurately gain body fat gain or loss. If so, then great. I think calipers are more than adequate in that regard with the same person measuring the same way each time.
