    So how is everyone doing? Bulking right now but starting to hate food since I feel full all the time.

    Also, just started deadlifting again without straps. I almost gave up on hook grip a few weeks back but have finally found a way to use it effectively for work sets (weights being very close to what I was pulling with straps).

    Something that I noticed is to try to get as many fingers over the thumb as possible before pulling so that the bar doesn't slip out of the hands. The index and middle fingers weren't enough but getting the ring finger over the thumb as well really secures the barbell in the hands.

    I don't know how long I'll be able to progress using hook grip (might have to use straps again at some point down the line) but risking a bicep tear as a recreational lifter by using mixed grip isn't wise in my opinion.

    P.S. Great video on hook grip.

    I'm getting back in the swing of consistent lifting. Have maintained gains made over a 10lbs weight increase over a year or so. Cutting down some fat so I can see more definition again. Today I started playing with the idea of possibly doing a mock figure comp and documenting it for accountability...maybe even do a legit one, eventually. Would need to be more disciplined with food before committing to that, though.
    Well summer has came and went, but Fall is doing just fine! Happy to hear you're back on the consistent lifting train. I'm back as well, I started exercising last December and haven't looked back. The last 6 months has been at least 4x in the gym lifting, and the past 3 weeks straight I haven't missed a day at the gym, sometimes going twice.

    I have been doing my own thing, mainly starting out with compound lifts, then working my way down the ladder for whatever body part I'm working. Mainly deadlifts, squats, overhead press and flat bench. Accessorizing daily, which I would really say is more like rehabilitation of my tendons and ligaments/muscles & adding stretching daily has kept me injury free.

    Numbers aren't pretty but going up:
    Deadlift: 255
    Squat: 205
    Bench: 185
    OHP: 125

    Plenty to talk about on my end but I'll come back and hopefully it'll spark some conversation and talk some more.

    I am strong and can see my benis in the shower.
    barely. LOL!
    got a few weddings in the spring so going to burn the belly hard this winter.
    Already cut WAY back on the booze.

    maybe a few beers one night a week or some whiskey.
    not cutting carb's yet.

    my new favorite meal is chicken, black beans, chili beans with hot sauce and some shredded cheese.

    I stupidly started doing the The “One Lift a Day” Program because I just want to work my muscles and cardio bunny to burn the fat and it looked like a quick way to get some lifts in since I got a lot going on right now.

    https://www.t-nation.com/workouts/on...-a-day-program

    holy fuk it's tough.
    pushing and pulling poverty weights with this work out after a summer layoff.
    Though I did wheel barrow 10 ton of stone into the backyard for my patio and did cut,split and stack about 13 cord of wood plus some biking.
    so I wasn't just sitting on me arse and drinking beer all summer.

    Another movement you need to check your ego at the door for.
    I usually sit for these because tend to swing the weight up when standing as I start to peter out on later sets.

    Yea i've definitely checked my ego at the door on most lifts now. I actually just got a minor injury from squatting the other day, first time i think I've had a real injury from lifting, but anyway, I'm taking a few weeks of squats/deadlifts to let it heal and start over again. I wasn't even pushing that much weight, I just ended up tweaking my left ribs somehow.. possibly a breath issue.

    Pulled 300 today, pretty happy with myself. Back is feeling stronger than ever, doing like 30-60 pullups a day consistently. Lots of lunges and squats as well. Just doing full mobility and flexibility movements. I always end my routine with 2-3 dead hangs for 30sec-1minute...its been really helping out in pain management.

    Hows everyone doing? Ready for Christmas?

    Grats on 300!

    Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday <3

    I dun got fat. Been eating real good...too good.

    160lbs seems to be my sweet spot, low 20s in body fat %. I’m 180lbs atm. Granted, I’m bloated af (170lbs last week) but still.

    Bought Primatene for after the 25th and am participating in a in an online powerlifting group / paid coaching until March to help get back on track.

    Social aspect really helps me with consistent training and being accountable.

    Deadlifting every ten days or so has really helped me increase strength overall. Pulled 329 today no issues. Trying to get to that intermediate strength of 373 at just under 200lbs body weight..

    cutting is hard. LOL!
    only drink once a week now.

    been making chicken chili in the slow cooker for lunches.
    2 cups of that = ~500 cals with 60 ish prot and i'm so full for the day.
    walking the mile from my car now instead of taking the train if it isn't raining or single digits.
    need to find some new waterproof hikers and better gloves for the really cold weather.

    gotta drop 40lbs by spring.
    That should get me into my 36's.
    the 20 tons of stone i plan to get and move by hand for the driveway
    5 tons of river rock for the patio i also plan to move by hand
    the roof on the deck i'm building and the deck for the pool
    plus the trellis systems for my hop plants should help me drop down to 34's.

    anyone notice when you return to lifting other aspects of your life become more disciplined also?
    Lately by the time I get home from work it's 7-7:30 so I would make some dinner and sit on the couch and drink until bed time.
    now most nights after work i'm working on projects for a few hrs before bed.

    The big one i'm on now is tiling my shower stall upstairs.
    then either bead board or wainscot the walls and Whirlpool tub surround.

    i'm still on that 1 lift a day workout but I put my skirt on to do it since cutting cals.
    it works the muscles so i'm not worried i'll look like urkel.

    fill half way up with thawed chicken breasts (I toss about 6 in)
    sprinkle chili powder on chicken.
    2 cans of chili beans and sauce from cans.
    2 cans of black beans drained.
    2 cans of sweet corn drained.
    chili-lime seasoning on top of that.

    slow cook.

    add more seasoning to taste.

    super easy and super cheap.

    Edit:
    Of course you can use less beans or corn if you want to cut carbs.
    And I will eventually.
    this is just way # 4 of 6 i've used to eat chicken on a cut and not get sick of it.
