    Just in case you missed it

    A rep calculator shows that 11 x 205 would be equivalent to 16 x 185 ... which confirms what I guessed.

    So you could have 6 reps in reserve when you thought it was...

    It is hard to make predictions... but making predictions doesn't help you reach your goal - so unless you have some academic interest, why bother? Like I said, just keep making progress.

    You could lose some fat if you wanted.

    You aren't going to reach your end goal until you've built the necessary muscle and lost the necessary fat regardless of what order you do that in. So it...

    For triceps it's not bad. Gotta do a curl and pullup too.

    Of course you will usually rotate exercises to different variants now and again. Nobody really just settles on one or two exercises for...

    You would really need 10RMs not 1RMs which would be a better proxy for muscle mass - you would also need to know BF% which has a dramatic effect on appearance. Even then you won't look the same...

    Recovery is probably more about conditioning and managing workload, life stress, sleeping, eating enough essential fats etc. This will tend to give you the best nominal test levels that you are...

    Be aware that even waist measurements are not perfect. Your skin hydration and gut content changes randomly which will affect things.

    Unlikely - especially if 225 is close to your neural peak already - if that's the case then further strength improvement requires substantial muscle growth to support it, which is not something...

    120 grams lost per day is

    0.12 * 7700 calories per day

    because there is 7700 calories in 1kg of fat mass

    This assumes your daily loss estimate is accurate. Ideally I would take at least 2...

    Missed this one

    Yes, if you purposely train for microtrauma (slowed eccentrics) it could take longer to recover, you will be more sore and if you train again too soon then you will have a poor...

    It would have been better if you did AMRAP with 185 - then you would know your true RIR. Nothing magic about 10 reps. I bet you could have got 15-18...

    It doesn't seem unreasonable.

    Be prepared for there to be noise in your readings. Your weight will change randomly due to water weight. This can even last weeks at a time.

    It does look a lot better. Perhaps you could go a little deeper - try it and see if you can without losing lower back position

    Do anything which doesn't put pressure on the hand. If you are pushing something with your wrist and (crucially) it doesn't hurt, I can't the issue, it's what I'd do in that situation too.

    It's not enough to tell us what days of the week - we also need to know what you are doing on those days.
