    6- focus. I only pay attention to the weights. Anything else either I don't notice or it adds focus.

    Yeah man I still follow this thread. I definitely appreciate your appreciation. It's cool to see everybody trucking along, and it's good to see you've got in the groove with more complete lifting. ...

    Add a protein shake or big bowl of cereal + protein scoop before bed. Should be around an extra 400 cals / 30 grams of protein. See what happens after a month.

    How are you measuring your calories and macros? A scale or eyeball? Maybe you're not getting as many cals as you think.

    @Eli

    Maybe the problem is trying to leapfrog out of a phase in life: youth want to be adults, adults want to be young again, neither one is satisfied with where they are in the moment. That...

    That's a good point, although you'll continue gaining strength for at least the next 20+ years. SBS just did part of their podcast on strength and aging, and the main drop off at 30 is...

    It kinda is for that demographic, and it isn't sustainable year-round. Better go with something more plain vanilla. Hard variations accomplish the same goal.

    20 re squats is a real program from the book Super Squats. There's Smolov Jr or full Smolov: https://www.smolovjr.com/smolov-squat-program/. People get injured on it.

    Can you do multiple variations within the week, instead of swapping entirely after 8 weeks? I recently had good results doing 4 bench variations within 1 week.

    I'd do a harder variation rather than go to failure on a big compound. Pause squats, pin squats, tempo squats, constant tension squats, will let you milk your weights for a good while rather than go...

    @Eli, In college I used to get a mid-semester slump every term, right after mid-term exams. Just a dip in energy and focus, couldn't maintain those straight through for 4 months. I still see it in...

    Yeah man the same thing happened to me and I couldn't or didn't fix it. Didn't lift at all for almost all of August. I think I know my own reasons why but no need to put them out here.

    Yes, squat, bench, and deadlift (or variation) are money makers, but also rows, chins, and overhead press are important, as is some kind of rotational movement.
