    On Saturday after doing a few 5rep sets on back squat, I was feeling pretty good and put 370 on the bar to see if I could match my 1RM from the other week. Struggled a little, but managed to get it up. Turns out my brain wasn't working correctly, and I had a 5lb plate extra on each side so it was actually 380. Unintentional PR FTW!

    Now able to do 5 5-rung C&P ladders with a 20 kg bell without feeling smoked. Trying to get the total time of them down before I bump to a 24kg bell though.

    Nope I'm much weaker than I've been in the last 1-2 years. But at least I'm heavier.

    No, instead of going 3x8 on DB incline I had to go 2x8 1x6 and it felt stupidly heavy. Cutting feels bad man.




    Talking to the gym chavs today, group has been training 2 weeks, one started a cycle with tren in it today, is this real life?

    This is my issue currently. Stalled on DL and decided it's probably weakness in my hip flexors and hammies.

    i dont see how a hip flexor "weakness" would affect your pull at all

    Fuji, you strike me as the type of guy who could very well flame out on this whole lifting/nutrition thing. You're still such a young guy that doing everything to the extreme as you've chronicled in this thread seems really unnecessary. Seems like whether it's bulking up, leaning out, or aiming for a certain weight on a lift, your approach is always pedal to the metal. What's the big hurry?
