    NYR = cut down to 10% by my birthday (August 1st) and join thousand lb club.

    I know both are entirely attainable, really looking forward to this year actually, and in all aspects of life, not just fitness

    Anyone else get general inflammation through their body when they gain weight? I didn't eat too well/work out as much due to the Holidays/work and I've noticed I'm starting to have a habitual sore throat and itchy feeling across my body.

    Fuck. Yes. Today I channeled my inner-Charly. Despite not deadlifting since before Christmas, and since it was the first time I was using straps, I said fuck it and added 20 lbs. Pulled 2x5x315 so. fucking. unbelievably. easy.

    My grip problem is 100% solved. I'm going to fly through the next 100lbs and I can't fucking wait. 875 total right now, 1000 by the time I start cutting is easily within reach again! :slayer:

    If those are solo sessions, that's a decent price. It's around the going rate for boxing coaches I've trained with.

    I don't know if using straps means that your grip problem is 100% solved. gjdm on the progress regardless

    NYR:

    • Try competing at least once this year
    • Hit milestones for all three lifts - 500 DL, 405 Squat, 250ish bench
    • Get real about my bulk and stop lingering around 170
    • Make school my bitch and continue onto new career path
    • Stop spending money on things I don't need

    Lot of lifting brahs I know are letting go of their bulking fears this year. It's a beautiful thing

    Target champion shorts are GOAT. Cheap, flattering cut, and comfortable.

    I'm not trying to be a "bellend," but I wonder about this whenever I see you and Coldsnap post #'s.

    Us three are more or less in the same boat, not lifting for all that long, somewhat similar goals. And out of the three, i've been lifting the least amount of time (one year next month) yet i'm stronger than the both of you.

    Once again, not coming off as a jerk, is this genetics, consistency, determination, etc?

    Makes me wonder if you take three genetically identical people, and put them through different styles of training for a year, what would happen

    I can tell you that I've been pretty inconsistent with getting to the gym for a while, and also I wasn't monitoring my intake closely enough. And also, even though I've been lifting for a long time (like 4 years) it took me a long time to wade through all the bullshit and noise out there. I'd say that my only truly productive lifting occurred when I first started when I was doing SS, and now when I'm on SPBR. In October/November I made a lot of progress when I was consistent and eating big. One of my resolutions is to get to the gym consistently the whole year and make sure I'm getting enough protein.

    Also doesn't help that I've been letting my deadlift stall for so long due to grip issues, and that my chest is insanely weak because I wasn't doing any meaningful chest work until I started SPBR. I thought I squatted more than you though?

    Ah, those are not bad #'s but for someone a year in I thought you'd be doing more. Why don't you test maxes?

    Thanks. IDK, don't really care about em, they're not in my prog and all I care about is that my numbers keep moving up with the same prog.

    Makes sense.

    It's fun having a day just to text maxes every couple of months, try it out, breaks up the monotony of a routine and gets you motivated
