progress is progress, whether it's more reps at some load or more load on the bar. however, estimating a true max from some set based on calculation may give a biased representation of where you are. depending on what you do, that may either be irrelevant or not.

Whats great for you, might not be for everybody.

And adopting PL style lifts or programming doesnt mean one is absolutely committed to 1RMing. Plus if one's programming calls for singles at a % of a 1RM while never testing an actual 1RM, how is that any different from what I'm doing in terms of finding one's "true" 1RM?

I feel like your injury has you frustrated and is making you lash out. Stop it.

I have exceeded my keystrokes for this thread today... time to go squat n deadlift. Enjoy your Sunday

How about we compromise and do doubles, then? :D

isn't squatting and deadlifting bad for you, as you've endlessly posted about in the past? what's the point of squatting and deadlifting if you aren't pling? isn't that too risky?


you consistently post the most inane and misinformed shit itt, not sure what me being injured has to do with me taking issue with it

I'm just under 5'9" and had to make weight for some Muay Thai fights I had. I started the cut around late-February/early-March and finished after my weigh-in on June 26th.

Did you lose a lot of strength... and if so when did it really start to plummet

Was thinking of skipping my morning coffee, saw Jarude's avatar, decision reversed.

Yeah, my strength has gone down quite a bit with my bench taking the worst hit. When I started the cut my 5RM for bench was 310. It immediately stopped increasing, held there for a couple weeks, then dropped to 305 for a couple more. Then when I hit about 180 (maybe 4-6 weeks in to the cut) it started dropping off quickly. By the time I had my first fight in May I weighed 163 lbs and my 5RM on bench around 275. I didn't lift at all between the May fight and the fights in June, so it dropped off even more. I'm probably at around 260 for a 5RM today.

My squat and deadlift kept going up for the first month or so because I had recently reset them after a back injury. They peaked at about 360 for my DL 5RM and 330 for squat 5RM when I was 175-180 lbs. They just kind of stalled there, maybe lost 5-10lbs on the squat by the time of the May fight. I don't think they would have dropped very much if I would have continued lifting, but because I stopped DL is at around 315-325 now and squat is around 300.

I did lose a lot of weight though, so although my lifts went down a lot overall, I managed to keep more strength than I expected when considered in proportion to my body weight.



TL:DR - I lost a lot on my bench but squat and deadlift increased for a while before stalling. I didn't lift at all after May 17th, and that caused all the lifts to drop.
