    Was on a walk this morning and took some time to think about meet attempt selections some more. As of right now I am thinking:

    Squat:
    365--->385--->405

    Bench:
    205--->215--->225/230

    Deadlift:
    380--->405--->430

    We'll see how things go. That would be an all time squat PR even if i hit my second attempt. (PR is 380), ten shy of my deadlift PR (440) and 10/5 pounds short of my paused bench PR (235). Given that I hit those numbers at ~181 in a mock meet back in late April of last year, I'd be happy with that.

    Thanks for stopping by :-) but appreciate it....forum interaction with everyone was really going here for a bit but now everyone kinda just seems to be going about their respective grinds as of late. I know that you're on yours.

    But will try not to disappoint. I'm definitely not going to be doing anything too crazy in terms of manipulating training in the days up to the meet aside from setting up two consecutive off days right before. dat 4-day split programming flexibility. Just hope that I don't start too light...or leave too much in the tank at the end

    Good stuff. Was really pleased with the squats and bench. Always such a fantastic feeling when you hit your stride in a session after having a couple of ones in a week that felt off for whatever reason.

    Haha been on a tight schedule brah, still quietly lurking though <3

    I haven't competed in a PLing meet since HS football so I'm probably not the best guy to take advice from there, but if it were me I'd just give it 100% balls to the wall. It's your first meet, nothing wrong with going too hard and maybe missing a lift or 2. Better to overshoot than undershoot IMO. I bet you've got a good 405-415 squat in you no problem. Same with DL, considering you're putting up some impressive numbers there as well. Just from an outsiders perspective... I'd gun for 445+ on DL for an all time PR. Hitting a PR on both squats and deadlifts at a PLing meet would be a nice way to end your year with a bang. Your first bodybuilding comp + some PRs at a meet and not to mention all while starting pharm school? Be a helluva a 2016 to look back on.

    same on my end, bruh bruh. still checking in even though i'm not always posting! i like that perspective on it, though...already has been a successful year for me, but if i could get all time PRs on two out of the three lifts...mane, i'd be ecstatic. one heck of a way to finish out 2016. We'll see how things are feeling on the day of. But regardless, I know four plates will be going on that bar for sure for the squat. We'll see just how strong the deadlift feels on my second attempt and go from there. Never knew you powerlifted!

    11/23/16:
    161.0 lbs.

    Squats:
    45 x 10
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    275 x 3
    335 x 4, 4

    Leg Press:
    6 45s/side x 6, 6 (hometown gym so weights are different)

    Paused Bench Press:
    135 x 5
    165 x 5
    190 x 4, 4, 4, 4

    Deadlift:
    225 x 5
    275 x 3
    315 x 1
    355 x 4, 4, 4, 4

    Standing BB Overhead Press: *paused*
    115 x 6, 6
    110 x 5.9

    HS Low Rows:
    2 45s + 35/side x 6, 6, 5.8

    Standing DB Hammer Curls:
    50s x 8 alternated
    45s x 8, 8 simultaneous

    Standing Overhead Cable Triceps Extensions:
    110 x 8

    Seated Overhead DB Presses:
    55 x 13
    65 x 8

    So I took my second working set with 335 and finished it, but then I felt a little tweak in the left side of my lower back as I finished my last rep. Finished the set, thought about getting under the bar again and then felt a good bit of pain. Decided to take the rest of my sets over to the leg press, where I got two sets of six hard reps (with no pain). Managed to do the rest of the workout without a problem, even deadlifts, surprisingly, until I got to the standing overhead triceps extensions. Felt some back pain on my last rep and switched to a seated alternative. Kinda scary to be having this 2.5 weeks out, but i have faith that it isn't too terribly serious. Time will tell. Not the most welcoming workout back to my hometown gym, where I'll be training over Thanksgiving/my Christmas break.

    Doesn't feel so bad. I could pretty much hit everything that I need to if I choose movements wisely. Just scary that I'm feeling it so close to the meet. I do not want to pull out. I don't think that I'll have to but can't say for certain. Just gotta see how things are feeling tomorrow or Saturday. If the squats are still uncomfortable, I will just be substituting for the leg press. so happy i can still deadlift at least.

    Hope I can get a badass sword or something haha dat dam bench still holding me back.

    Good. Fueled by a ton of Thanksgiving food over the past 4-5 days (which I didn't really even track aside from the turkey in my last Thanksgiving meal with my immediate family). Had a relaxing weekend. Only ten more days until my first semester is finally over! I've grown up a lot over the last four months. Living in Memphis has been a massive culture shock.

    Very nice session. Upper body pump was outrageous. Squatted without knee sleeves because SPF (the organization who I'll be competing with) will not allow them in the "Raw: Without Wraps" category. And I don't wanna be lifting against people with wraps just because I'm using knee sleeves.

    Nothing like getting dat pump when training with a more PLing oriented routine. Always a nice change of pace. How's your training gonna change once you finish up the meet? Still planning on working with Jeff Nippard?

    Kinda weird to have had such a pump with rep ranges that really aren't all too high, but I'll take it! lol as bro as it may sound, i enjoy a pump as much as anybody. But I've actually had a change of plans with training after the meet. Was going to work with Jeff, but he was requiring that I pay for two months minimum for his services and was wanting to have weekly check-ins and stuff. While that does sound great, it is a tad too much money for me currently...Decided to go back to 3DMJ since Brad knows me pretty well now and knows exactly what I've been doing for the last year and a half.

    But for what specifically I'm going to be doing after the meet, I'm not 100%. I do know that it will involve bumping up the volume for sure. I'd like to get some work in in the higher rep ranges. Ideally, I'd like to squat, bench and deadlift 2x per week at least (I love squatting though, so I wouldn't mind doing so 3x/week again). We'll see what happens. Looking for some exercise variation now and would like to beat my weak points into a pulp. Focusing on growing while still getting the practice on the powerlifts. Although I am primarily going to be focusing on putting some muscle on this frame.

    Pretty good stuff. Last heavy session with all three of the lifts before the meet next weekend. Versa gripps gave out on set three and a worker made me slow my eccentric due to my deads being too loud...so taking these factors into account on the 360 x 2 set.

    Figured I'd post some progress pictures up since I'm in a transitional period in my training. Today marks exactly 6 months post-show. Six days out from the meet and weighed in at 163.4 lbs. this morning with a weekly average of 163.8 lbs. So just about EXACTLY ten over stage weight right now. Going to be pushing for a pound/month gain after the meet. Looking to be ~170 in May. Extremely excited to be working with some higher volume. Not sure how these last six months of training have affected the physique. I do think there have been some improvements on the quads, though.

    Also can't wait to give it my all up there on the platform. Time to compare the emotions/sensations to the feeling of being on the bodybuilding stage!

    Dang man.. 10 lbs over stage weight in 6 months? That's super slow & controlled. Maintaining great leanness!

    I have my friend reversing right now & he's already up 8 lbs in 4 weeks lol.. but still maintaining visible abs

    Have you gotten any bloodwork done between post-show to now to see how your body is doing in regards to having done a long contest prep?

    Have you gotten any bloodwork done between post-show to now to see how your body is doing in regards to having done a long contest prep?
    Tried hard to do so. I could have easily eaten my way up to 190. Still can get rather hungry but it has trended down so much. Allowing my body to realize that it isn't starving anymore! Probably maintaining his abs better than I have....I don't seem to have the most favorable storage patterns. Having this powerlifting meet with the 165 weight class was a good strategy on my part to keep my weight under control post-contest. It worked well.

    But no, I haven't, although I would be extremely curious to see. Test levels still don't feel 100% like how they were when I was 180 but not sure if that's a byproduct of the prep or because I'm 23 instead of 21 now....Kinda leaning toward it being due to the prep, though. Kind of have been using it to my advantage as having a libido down here at school by myself wouldn't be doing anything for me anyways LOL

    Didn't you get on hormone replacement therapy after prepping? kills a lot of peoples' hormones for what seems like a long time.

    Yeah, I was asking because my friend's test levels were down to 195 ng/dl after his 9 months of dieting & he was having kidney issues. He's a lifetime natty so we were wondering why this happened. After a few months of reversing he has to go get tested again & possibly has to see an endo if it doesn't fix itself. He said he felt "fine" for almost all his prep tho.

    Yeah, I'm on T*T now & honestly, I feel normal just like you or the next guy. I don't feel that insane superman feel as when my levels were extremely elevated. If I were to stop T*T, my libido would prolly be non-existent or close to is my guess. Also, I have more muscle mass now on T*T than when I was natty.

    To me, whether I feel the passion for lifting ever again & get myself back in the gym is something that's still up in the air but I'll prolly T*T for life. It's become a part of me & it's as simple as taking your multivitamin. It's become my new normal.

    Have you ever had hormonal blood work done? If so what were your results?

    I haven't. Although I kinda wish I had the data on hand. Believe it or not, I have a relatively strong aversion to needles (not the best thing to hear from a dude who will be able to give immunizations in a month, haha). I passed out twice when I went to the gastroenterologist back in February to get some blood work done. Probably should bite the bullet just to see.

    Probably a similar situation for me, tbh. Were your test levels like chronically low or did you get prescribed after a single low measurement? Not knocking you at all for staying on...especially if it allows for you to live a normal life. Not at all shocked about the muscle mass levels, though.

    Hey, if you're not loving lifting hard, why do it? Cliche as it sounds, life is too short to devote yourself to something so much if you're not getting what you feel are adequate returns. I bet that diet attributed to you getting burnt out.

    Squats and bench went well. Went through the workout fine up until curls....ended up straining my lower back again similarly to how I did twoish weeks ago..which is odd because I had absolutely zero pain between then and now. It's Wednesday and the meet's on Saturday. and I can still feel the little bit of pain in my lower back right now. Remaining optimistic

    Looking solid dude, crazy how you've maintained your leanness/weight this long. Hell I concluded my cut in early October and I'm up about 8-10lbs right now and it's only been 2 months.

    Like yourself, I've never gotten my hormone levels tested. Honestly I want to sometime as well just to get a baseline reading because it would be cool info to have. My only problem is the fact that I passed out during a blood drive my senior year as well lol. Funny part was that I filled the bag up in roughly 2-3 minutes, which is unheard of. My biology teacher at the time thought they may have hit an artery instead of a vein so they were taking oxygenated blood out of my system.

    Sucks about the tweak, but I've found that when I tweak something it heals in no time at all. I think you'll be good to go by Saturday. I think you'll do super well at this meet considering your squat and DL strength are crazy good for your body weight.
    Strong mind, strong body.
