I’ve actually managed to maintain all of my strength during this cut and I think I might have actually gained some strength and size which is always good. I hit this new PR on deadlift of 325 for 4 sets of 5. Shit can get pretty bad sometimes while you’re on a cut. For example, your energy levels are usually trash, you’re always hungry and easily irritable. I have my bad and good days but I keep a positive attitude, I know all this hard work and sacrifice will pay off one day. Keep grinding and don’t give up on your goals. I hope everyone is having a great Monday! 🙂
So I had a little bit of a nightmare benching today. My final set was meant to be 52.5kg amrap. Things were going well as I was working my way up to it. All the weights were feeling manageable, even 50kg (my previous 1rm) only had a slight wobble on the way up. So I was hoping to at least get the 3rep standard. I didn't. I couldn't even manage my second one. I was not impressed at all. So I took a little 10 minute rest/daydream and tried again. Manged to get two, still not ideal, but I wasn't going to get anymore so I called it a day and moved onto my accessory work.

#recoverypizza all weekend aside, today was my 1st workout at 120kg bwt
did ~20 paused singles with 455lbs on bench, didn’t keep count, going off of how long it took and how much rest I was taking between sets
did some lower then upper accessories
immediately switched to incline after and worked up to 455 then back to this 405 x4 set.
Good start to the week, hope everyone stays hydrated, especially in Louisiana 😪
As a meet director I would like to personally announce that the USPA POWER SURGE 2018 will not only be paying the spotters but also the judges working the event this year!
Typically this is a volunteered position but I personally believe the direction of the sport in general needs to go more towards properly compensating all those that make the event happen.
While I know as a director I'm spending more money on a bigger venue, cash prizes for the lifters, and paying the judges etc; at the end of the day I truly believe this is worth it so that our sport can be taken more seriously.
Below I explain more in detail what you can expect from the meet this year and changes I hope for in the sport. Watch the video and you'll see:
1) Why we are choosing a bigger venue
2) Why we will be adding more money to the $1500 pool
3) Why we want to pay the judges and volunteers
Strong. Strong. Strong. A few highlights from the 9am crew... #pr#deadlift#strength#vitality - - - - -
Why is strength important? Answer: LIVE LONGER. “The strongest 1/3 of the population dies at a lower rate of all causes than the weaker 2/3 of the population” - British Medical Journal 2008 #bestronger#livelonger
Currently 170 lbs flat! Been eating somewhat consistently and sleeping really well because of summer break 🌞 Been feeling really strong too & hoping to hit some new PR’s very soon. Comment what BF % you guys think I am.
LOOKING LIKE POPEYE ON SOME SPINACH! 😂 Man I didn’t know my mouth moves like I’m chewing grass when doing heavy lifts! I managed to end the workout with 5 reps of 80kg on the deadlifts. Looking forward to the two rest days 😌
I recently have been trying to just touch the bar to my chest rather than sinking the bar into my chest with benching. I feel as though it gives me more control throughout the lift. What do you guys prefer? Sinking the bar into the chest or just touching the bar to the chest?
500lbsx2 @8-8.5 // A big confidence booster for today’s top squat double as I woke up @ 7AM for my eye appointment so did not think I’d have enough rest to squat the number I wanted, but this moved well so I’m happy 😊 // Thanks @chu_george_ for 🎥 // @virusintl sponsor me.... .
