post #50761 of 57266
I'm getting fat. Knee hurts so I've been skipping leg day. Probably a mistake, I'll try starting up again tomorrow.

That is all.

I've put on 10kgs since early December. At least half of that is fat but I'm making so much progress that i don't care. Also now that I've actually gone through a proper cut I'm pretty confident i can shed what I need to in 2-3 months before the (Southern hemisphere) summer.

That's how I'm feeling. I almost cleared my reps on 230 bench even though it was the first time I tried and I've been weighting up consistently. Feelsgoodman.

saw a dude snatching 255lbs today and wanted to compliment him, kinda wanna start doing powerlifts, is snatch easier to learn than clean?

TFW you realize your hips are misaligned :confused:

Going to do some corrective stretching for the time being. Will talk to the uni PTs if it doesn't get any better. 

For a couple of months I've been thinking my right trap was smaller than my left. Turns out my right arm just hangs lower because the right side of my hip is lower. 

Anyone gone through something similar? Have been thinking of continuing doing lower body work with very light weights while I get this figured out.

Clean is easier for most people to learn but they're both equally difficult to do well.

There's no point doing oly lifts unless you're going to do them seriously which requires a coach and proper dedication I.e. You'll probably have to forget about your regular program and do an Olympic program instead.

It's a waste of time if you half ass it because you can't get anywhere near maximal lifts without a shitload of time put in.

Any tailor will tell you that pretty much everyone has slight misalignments.

As long as you do single leg stuff and keep the weight balanced in your main lifts don't worry about it.

Did some leg and shoulder stuff today. Should have worked out longer but I had to run to meet people. Turns out they bailed. I hate when that happens so fucking much.


Anyway, I got 8/8/6 for Standing OHP with 115 on the bar total. Not bad for not having done it for a while. Think it might be better to stick to seated for back stuff though? Not sure. It's so hard not to superset something with front squats. I feel like I'm wasting time between reps lol. I guess I can grab some light dbs and do lateral raises...

 

Got 5/8/8 with 135 for front squats. Going to go for 8/8/8/8 next session and then bump up the weight to 155 and go from there. Next deadlift session is probably going to be either 225 or 245 for 3-4 sets of 8.

 

My own weight's coming up too slowly but surely and I'm sitting at like 178 right now. I want to make sure that the weight gain isn't total crap though, so the weights gotta keep moving up as well. Still cool with gaining a bit more, but I'm really hoping to be cut-ish for summer (say mid may) might start to cut cals a bit in april to see if 6 weeks makes a difference.

Bush you need to seek out PRI stuff like 90/90 breathing. That will get your hips in neutral. Dark side strength posts good stuff on that, look at their YouTube.

for the people who still count nutrients, what's a reasonable per day sugar intake? I've been aiming for under 50g

Stretching won't help if you've developed adhesions or have an imbalance. Get evaluated

Cleans are a lot easier for me although I still suck at both.

Since I train at a weightlifting and powerlifting club, I know a decent amount of weightlifters.

Its far more dependent on technique than powerlifting and progress seems to come really slow. It also places much higher demands on coordination, flexibility and just hard and consistent training than strength training in general.

 

Just learning the movements properly seems to take a ton of time, why you need a higher training frequency and lots of training with just the broomstick.

It seems like if you want to get decent at it you have the "all or nothing" mindset.

8 x 4 is pushing it for front squats. I'd keep it 5 or under since your erectors will just get tired.
