Going up to 140 next week for 4 reps maybe 5 if somehow I'm stronger idk.
On bench my right arm tucks more than my left, going to work on flaring the right elbow a bit more so that both sides are even (right is over tucked)

122.5 x 5 easier than last week's 120
140 x 2 the actual phuck is this? First rep was absolutely terrible. Felt something in my pec so maybe it tore a bit and thats why I failed
+Slingshot:
150 x 3
160 x 3 *[b]PB[/b]* made amends
Without slingshot:
100 x 12 *[b]PB[/b]* not too bad
100 x 8 absolute maximum to end all maximums. No idea wtf is wrong with me today but I can't put 2 good sets together.
My Jimmies are so rustled that I missed that 140, I should really have it for 4+ fuuuuu

Some bis

had a few preparatory exams (still full units though) last week and my back just self destructed. comp schedule was moved forward too so had to drop smolov and start my cut and power training early. cutting until im not fat lel.
training will be for strength, muscle maintenance and power/speed increases. shoulder is still unhappy for any benching but ill do some heavy chest and legs work tomorrow in some shape or form.

I'm alive, but in middle of exams. They end on June 22nd :(
Lost 13.3kg tho, but strength has gone to chit so I haven't felt like logging lmao

May 30th Body fat test measurement (for future reference)
Weight: 97.5kg
Body fat %: 23.4%
Fat free mass: 74.7kg
Fat mass: 22.8kg
3% higher than when I did it last June.. Hopefully will be ~1617 percent by late July.

Damn, it always said 193lbs on your stats, didn't realize you were so heavy a couple months ago.

I was like 200 until late Feb then suddenly became a fat piece of chit idk mane
I'm cutting to ~12% bf then doing a lean bulk for mass so it'll be a lonnnng time before I handle any proper weight again :(

BW lying at just under 89kg, ~ 47 lbs lost since diet started. Will be lean at low 80's so cutting until then.
Had a few injuries, distractions etc so my training has been bad and I now lift the equivalent of a newborn lamb :)
Starting texas method with baby weight on monday with some tweaks because I'm not going to get any muscle and may as well try to get some strength back..

Input maxes for next Cycle: 112.5 FSquat, 130 Bench, 150 Tbar. Taking Tbar easy, just gradually upping the weight as I work on RDL (erectors, grip, abs).
Gonna change some accessories next cycle  CG incline bench instead of OHP, some NG pullups, hammers.. just to keep progression steady +keep it fresh. Also needa work on stability through the core as it's a little unsteady at the top of the ohp (also why I'm alternating for CG incline).. maybe some abwheel, plank exercises etc.

Due to my pinky finger being extremely abraded (skin is cracked/cut/sore/supersensitive/flaking/dryAF and won't heal) I have to do my lifts with 3 fingers. Won't be able to do deadlifts or any dumbbell movement but hopefully i can work around (exercises for LB, Nordic curls, different selection of exercises for shoulders etc..). Front squat + bench shouldn't suffer too much but any pulling movement will be hampered by the grip weakness for this cycle. After this cycle I'll decide based on the condition of the skin how to proceed.
