    Found my training log Devils - I hit 205x8 (had no spot so probably could have gotten 9), two weeks ago, or 10 days after hitting 320 on Bench Press.

    Update

    I've been out for a while. I moved apartments last week and I'm getting stuffed around with the internet. So I'm on phone.
    My back is sore from the move but otherwise training has been going well. I'm really trying to push the diet as I'm still around 87.4kg, which could quickly become 87.2 tomorrow, 87.0 the next day, and so on. I really need to be organized otherwise missing meals just causes me to fall behind. I'm going to start having some more milk or oat milk and blending shakes, because it's getting hard to eat big all the time.

    My lower body training is moving slowly but my upper body is progressing well. Today I did 308 lbs on the bench press for 3 sets of 2 reps. My first time doing 3 plates ever. I also did a 52.5kg pullup for 3x6 reps a few weeks ago, which at this bodyweight, counts as another record.

    I'm still considering competing this year, I'll have until May/June to decide. I'll see how I keep progressing, I may want to keep gaining weight to over 200 lbs to really put size on my legs.

    I'll try to update more in the future and answer questions, so keep following.

    Cool, I'm sure you can make 225 for more reps soon.

    When I was a much, much younger man I pressed 305 for 1 rep.
    I doubt I'll see that happening again..LOL!


    In for you possible contest prep.
    She approached with her hand extended,. I slowly stepped back. "No" she said. "I just want to shake your hand. You're amazingly gorgeous." As she walked by me she copped a biceps feel.

    This may as well have been a deload. Was getting tight front delts and pec tendon after warming up on the bench so I just went lighter and cut it short.

    It was always the reason for training and bulking, it's just a matter of when I want to go next. I was thinking August/September or March next year if I get too heavy this bulk.

    Love this idea. I'm aiming for INBA Vics in September. If I'm no where near good enough then I'll do March. No biggie, but I still have a good 15kg to go.

    Your thinking is admirable. Very level headed.

    Hey man, some pretty impressive lifts in your most recent posts, mirin dat 52 kg pullups for reps and the bench. How many years have you been training for now?

    Also I was wondering, has your metabolism improved a lot from your first year or so of lifting to now, now that you have a lot more lean mass? Reason why I'm asking is because I'm cutting atm but I find that I have to keep it close to 2000 calories to lose a pound a week and i've only beencutting for about a month and I am still 13-14% bf. I don't have a ton of lean mass though, I'll probably have to get down to 165 to be 8-9%.

    Another PR on the bench, still going up, 1 more rep than last time each set. The third set I pretty much got but spotter touched the bar with fingers so I don't really want to count that.

    90kg/200 lbs bodyweight here I come!

    Thanks man, first time I went in a gym was October 2006.

    I'm on around 3500 to keep weight on, more than that to start gaining weight slowly. 2000 calories is quite low, but makes sense if you're losing a pound a week. Make sure you incorporate re-feeds and you could always make your training more intense and bump up your calories. You may need to get to 165, is that your plan?

    Yeah you goofed there. A bit of damage control is fine but I would give yourself about 6 weeks max, then back to maintaining and bulking.

    Your fats are too low, bump them up to 75 and just reduce your protein and carbs to compensate.

    Your low days would look better at 160/100/75 and high days 180/300/70

    Yes, I haven't seen many people bench 315 with a small chest, so that's what I was aiming for.

    Thoughts

    Got that extra rep on the bench unassisted, bringing it up to three sets of three, felt good. I cut out the sets after that as it's pretty hard and I didn't want to burn out.

    Got someone to put the db's on my knees for the Incline Press, got a solid set of five then four on the last set. Again another lifetime record that I finally got. First time I attempted it and I got it respectfully, feeling very good about that. Looking back thinking I'll never be a good bencher seems far away now as I see I can keep improving through some good programming and a solid bulk.

    I've had a pretty good bulk so far, at the moment I'm at 13.6kg(30 Lbs) increase in 11 months. Strength gains have pretty much been linear all the way through. At 75 kg bodyweight the most I could handle would have been 110 for 2-3 as a guess, so I've put on a good 30kg. Conveniently that's 1kg per LB of bodyweight, cool huh?

    And as a comparison to my last big bulk, in December 2011 at 90 kg bodyweight my best was 120kg for 2-3. So I've gained some more lean mass between bulks there.

    Thanks for the comments, I'm going to keep bulking till June and do a big update on what I've decided to do. I'll post some update pics as well.

    Trained today with some mates at their local gym today. Shoulders and arms but I did a mix of things. My forearm and wrist were sore so It was rather a muted effort. I don't really train shoulders or arms directly so there's not much I can do really. I did get a new record, I did 140kg on the bench for 4-3-3-3, so one rep better and one extra set, that's all I did for chest. I did some pullups but was pretty sore in the forearm so I didn't go heavy.

    Rest of the workout was just some laterals, 1 set of biceps, some upright row just with the bar and then some extra calf work, which I did yesterday. Good to get a change of scenery.

    And it's time for a deload so for the next four workouts, two upper and two lower will be at 50% and 60%. It's time for a well needed rest.

    You'll never be a good bencher?

    You Aussies must be a delusional bunch.

    Are you aware of how long it would take the average noobie to achieve 275 lbs for reps, much less be lean and natty at the same time?

    Forget the general population, you're probably in the top 2-3% of gym goers that can bench that much.

    Anyways, how often do you bench? It's hard for me to go back thru your log on smart phone, and how long will your deload take? 1 or two weeks?

    Why deload if you're continuing to gain a rep every workout?

    You've got some amazing delts Devlis. Mirin the way that they pop. What's your routine like and key to making them look like that? Or are they just naturally a genetic strong point for you?

    How old are you and how long have you been training btw?

    Well it's taken me 7 years, and I'm not lean atm, about 14-15%.

    I bench about two times per week. I usually deload for about a week.
    Because my joints fall apart

    anyway I am currently dealing with forearm tendonitis or something similar and my left shoulder injury flaring up. This is due to whacking my funny bone last week sometime and some awkward lifting in general. So I'm taking some time off from the gym, I will still train legs though.

    Thanks man, I think it's just a combination of insertions and leanness. When you get low body fat you can see where the delts join to the humerus. All that and yes they've always been a genetic strong point.

    However training wise they have got a lot of work flat benching, It took ages not to use them and focus on chest. Also I used to do pendlay rows and overhead press but can't anymore due to injuries.

    I'm 27 and I started training at 20.

    Were all these injuries due to lifting?

    That's a lot of injuries for seven years of lifting.

    I would say my previous work contributed the most to my back and shoulder.
