    Thanks - good info - yes definitely will typically keep reps lower and keep an eye on the elbows.

    Good work!

    Thursday did Deads and went a little heavy, which was fine but I didn't have my belt and it was the heaviest I've done conventional. Did three triples at 457, went to sumo for my last set.

    Was a little unprepared and late when I got to my buddy's house last night to lift - he wanted to do a mini-mock meet so I ended up putting up three heavy singles in under an hour - no PRs but felt good to put some weight on the bar!

    Good work FLEX! I know for sure I can't OHP 200

    Yesterday's bench day was back to slow eccentrics, not my fave but still in overall building part of cycle. Next comp is about 70 days out, so can't go too heavy yet!

    Props on you for posting that up. Your frame is a lot 'prettier' than mine. I am built like a block This is where I am at. To be honest, I did not want to post this because I am still not where I want to be. So much for 'getting in shape for summer'. But I am getting much closer. I dont think I would look bad if I dropped some water, but BF is still not where I want to get AND stay. This was just snapped this morning.



    Still shedding my COVID weight gain....



    Leg are ahead of upper body leaning out. Finally looking decent there...

    You are way to hard on yourself man, you look great.

    I am losing size, but definition is showing everywhere even in my back and my skin is looking grainy for some reason.

    Geez, ID and BH you both look great! You guys are both too hard on yourselves. I'm not anywhere near shirtless pics right now. I have started a conditioning phase (my word for diet). I started 2 weeks ago and already feeling better and down about 8#. Did deadlifts again today and I was able to tighten my belt to the 2nd row of holes, so I know I'm making some progress.

    I felt extremely strong today despite the calorie deficit. I did 90 minutes slow cardio on the treadmill (4mph at 8% incline), then did some strength testing on OHP. I managed 185# before I failed at 190#. Then moved to deadlift. I ramped up the same as usual, but skipped from 405 to 515 and the 515 was surprisingly easy. I decided to push the envelope and go for a current PR which is still 35# below my all-time best of 610#. I tried to do a 10 second static hold after lockout. Felt good.

    Thanks, Guys.

    ID, you're right, getting abs back isn't too terribly difficult. I'll be back to where I want to be in a matter of weeks.

    Did a big chest/shoulders workout with my daughter's boyfriend's Dad yesterday. Dude is a big guy (6-4 250) and very serious lifter. He took me to his old school irons gym that he lifts at. Really cool place and had a great workout.

    I felt extremely strong today despite the calorie deficit. I did 90 minutes slow cardio on the treadmill (4mph at 8% incline), then did some strength testing on OHP. I managed 185# before I failed at 190#. Then moved to deadlift. I ramped up the same as usual, but skipped from 405 to 515 and the 515 was surprisingly easy. I decided to push the envelope and go for a current PR which is still 35# below my all-time best of 610#. I tried to do a 10 second static hold after lockout. Felt good.

    I think we all are to some degree

    Nice freaking lift!!

    Good work LWW!

    Was out sick for a couple days, tested negative , back on the horse yesterday.
    Was a solo because my workout buddy was also getting tested.
    Some good bench stuff etc.
    If it worked (I have basically no editing skills) - here's some slow tempo bench and some weighted pullups.

    Why do you do curls, its not a compound movement and doesn't assist in any of the big lifts. I know you train for strength and don't care about build so I am just curious why you would do a curl?

    I guess you could say that you are just trying to address any imbalances that could lead to injury... but I do curls too and I must admit I do have SOME ego. :P

    A. I like to do heavy curls.

    B. Since doing curls (I never did them years ago) my biceps are getting harder, I didn't like having soft arms.

    My triceps got work from overhead pressing and floor pressing, my biceps were left behind.

    I learned my lesson about my body regarding overloading accessory work. I had this brilliant idea that I would do HEAVY curls and pushdowns 5 days per week for a month to see if I could grow my biceps and triceps. Ended up straining my tendons and was sidelined for a bit from doing curls or tricep work. I've just learned to accept that my arm size is what it is. I always wanted 18" arms, but it seems like it's not in the cards for me.

    True, but the bicep is targeted during any back movements such as deadlifts, BOR, pullups etc so wondering/curious why the curls.

    Then we go back to ego
    I've been doing curls about 1-2 times a week and obviously it's not building my big lifts. I also do calves about once a week and they're not really doing much for the big lifts either.
    Pertaining to Sinclair's response - I'm not doing them heavy, so hopefully no overwork or injuries!

    Yup we call them "show muscles" I also train calves and forearms but I work to get an overall aesthetic look.

    Been a little over a month since I have been able to bring back squatting. I am staying at 225 because I tried 315 and had a 'twinge' in back. Just going to stay here for a while. Also brought back deads and only doing 315.

    This might sound stupid, but I felt like I was wasting away my lower body. It had been 3 years since I could really train my lower body. I still had muscle, but I felt like I was starting to look skinny. I carry most of my leg mass up high and it is hard to see in shorts, but I snapped a pic tonight and feel like I did not look too bad. I can see the profile or outline has not atrophied too much. Overall, I look like I train. Unfortunately, in normal clothes today, my legs dont really show.

    Nice to finally be surprised and look at a pic and not feel frustrated.

    Still chipping away...day by day... Bench pic was Monday...

    Have no idea what I weigh. I have not stepped on a scale in a few months. Still doing IF daily and also on non-workout days doing 'hard fasts' where I only eat one meal and generally try to push it out to about 20hour fast.
