Oh another goal for next year is continuing to trust in the process. Like last year I was so new to lifting and gun-hoe about everything, every little lifting knowledge I picked up I would apply immediately. I had a constant need to increase my numbers THAT DAY. I learned a lot this year from Greg about the differences in the way people respond to training and where I stand in that spectrum. It's made me a lot more chill and I realized I have the tools in programming/diet/recovery to meet expectations I have for myself. There's variables I can control and do my best, but there's other variables that are uncontrollable.

It's been pretty good. I'm hitting my previous PRs right now beltless for reps and 25lbs lighter, so I feel pretty good about that. I've put a decent amount of size in my chest, delts, and traps. Which has lead to my bench increasing and bench form feeling more confident.
I still train like a powerlifter but since like August I've been working in 8 rep range on the big lifts and 15 rep range in accessory work which is more bodybuilding style, like drop sets and clusters. My main goal was to put on good size and increase hypertrophy, which I've done a decent job of. I'm curious to see what happens if I decide to start tapering and using a belt again.

That's awesome. Next year is totally going to be your year. I already see you popping up on my facebook and were not even friends! So popular.
