my goal is to get an unequipped 405 bench, 500 squat, and 650+ deadlift in the 198 class. currently just trying to stay around my weight right now without gaining any bodyfat - losing some bodyfat wouldn't be bad. weight has been holding and I'm looking a tiny bit leaner week by week, so I'm losing a little bodyfat here and there which is alright by me.
I'm content in 10-12% territory right now. if I ever want to get to 5-7% again, I'll just do it. ain't nothing to it really. but I don't see it happening anytime soon because I want to keep on adding to the weights.
Ha. When I said program I did NOT mean for aesthetics or weight loss.
I totally understand. I was at 7% as a competitive rower/runner but was bored after a while... and for myself I got sick of having to count calories to stay in a weight class I didn't want to be in. So I decided to give myself a few years to adjust body comp and maybe go back to rowing at a weight I'm happy at... But right now I'm falling in love with heavy lifts, which may cause a problem.
It's funny you say it ain't nothing to dropping to 5-7% bf, because when you've been there and you know the work it takes, it really isn't hard to just do it again.
