    Chariy where do you find these stats? I'd be interested in looking up my weight class.

    Well I'm fairly confident I'll take 1st. Not that hard especially if it's a smaller meet and there's like one or two other people in my weight class. Chances are, I'll be the strongest 198'er there. Would be nice to get "best lifter" though.


    Powerliftingwatch.com

    They're an aggregator of all the feds and keeps up on all the meets and results.. which is why they charge like $24/year for a subscription to the rankings.

    What weight class are you? I would be comfortable giving you the TOTAL (not single lifts) #1, #25, and #50 of the top 50 of your weight class. Anymore info, and I'd feel like a scumbag.

    Or just sign up, it's only $2/month.

    Current totals for 181 raw.

    #50 - 1355

    #25 - 1433

    #1 - 1705


    Those numbers are current - from the last 12 months.

    And for reference, the #100 in 181's since 2007 is 1385.

    Why is #100 higher than #50?

    Ah, was a joke on you saying you have to smile when you pose. My mate who competes always complains about how faggy fitness model posing is because they have to have white teeth and smile. He always does his posing to metal.

    You think so?
    I can't do either of them the "perfect way" (too poor ankle flex for proper high bar and shitty low back and hamstring flex for low bar) and sort of just squat how my body wants to. How far do you let the knees travel forward on the low bar squat? I seriously can't keep the knees behind the toes to get that posterior chain activation without rounding my lower back (buttwink).

    Switching over to a cut soon...any of you guys doing CarbNite? From my basic understanding of it, it's extremely low carb (<30) with a cheat every 7-10 days.

    That sub-50 carb count is kind of scary. Is it possible to even continue lifting for that extended period of time?

    I can't speak for CarbNite, but the typical Leangains Intermittent Fasting recomp protocol only lets you eat some veggies and fruit on rest days, which usually ends up around 50-70g. I have no problem with the meals and haven't felt lethargic or anything that is commonly associated with low carb diets. However, I've noticed I lack the stamina to push really hard on the compound lifts for several sets. Switched to reverse pyramid training and it works fine.

    I was kind of scared about the low carb / no starch days too. Turned out to be no problem. If anything, it only forces you to be more creative with your cooking and not eat the same meals every day. I'm biased though, cause I love sallads.

    Hit 375lb for a squat Pr today! I assume most of it was over my excitement from the new leather.

    Pulled 405 and it felt like 225 so i said fuck it and put on 455. Got it like 4 inches off the ground and stalled. that feel :(


    Also, saw a real life troll doll at the gym today

    I've been making zero progress on bb rows so I backed off my weight 20 lbs to focus on form. Definitely worth it, still pushed myself and had good form so hopefully I'll be making gains on that shit soon.

    Also, my shoulder was hurting earlier today. Apparently BW+100 chest dips are good therapy because it doesn't hurt at all anymore. :slayer:

    Hyped for leg day on Wednesday
