    According to those classifications I'm late intermediate (over 3.5 years of proper training and diet), despite never having benched more than 143lb x 5 and squatted 171lb x 6. I dunno - I think I'm...

    How long have you been lifting? You already have a stronger bench press than me and I weigh nearly 40lb more than you and have been lifting for over 3.5 years. 3 weeks with no progress is nothing to...

    That's double progression which is a fine way to do things. If you prefer a more consistent effort level, you can try dynamic double progression, where you can let the reps drop from set-to-set while...

    Congrats on the 200lb bench! How long have you been lifting for?

    Something people probably don't take into account is stride length. I used to be one of two PE teachers at a school. I'm 6'1" with proportionately long legs, the other teacher was a 5'4" ish woman...

    Interesting to read about how bodyweight affects strength. I've bulked up from 165lb to 180lb this year and seen small improvements to my lifts, except bodyweight pull ups, where my max has dropped...

    Cheers - it was your suggestion that lead to me looking into it. I think it will be fun doing the big lifts with higher frequency and I agree that the squat work looks by far the hardest.

    My favourite method of progression!

    Yes, that's progression and yes, you can grow muscle doing this, provided the volume and proximity to failure is appropriate for you. Volume load (sets x reps x...

    Sooo, I got bored and went back and converted all of my lifts in this thread from kg to lb - seeing as everyone else is posting in pounds. Took a couple of hours - I wouldn't usually have time for...

    Trying to calculate your TDEE probably isn't worthwhile - if you plug your numbers into a TDEE calculator it will probably spit out a number over 3000 calories, which you know doesn't work for you....

    2500 was just a suggested starting point - if you've tracked meticulously and not lost weight on that calorie amount, then start lower, using movement in your scale weight to adjust as necessary. I'm...

    I'm looking forward to the next thread - I start my (southern hemisphere) summer cut on October 11th.

    That's good to hear and shows you have the discipline to stick to an exercise routine. You're probably much fitter and stronger and healthier than you look, in that case.

    It also shows even more...

    It seems to me that OP is approaching this with an 'all or nothing' mentality , which is rarely a good thing. The question you need to ask yourself is: how has that mentality/approach worked for you...

    I've always done push ups strict - touching my chest to the ground and locking out every rep. I also do them later in workouts with some fatigue. The most I've done in a workout is about 26 at around...
