^I've been close. I have to be extra careful what I eat on squat or deadlift day. Sadly $1 tacos are on squat days

The worst is holding it in deads because then you can't really drive with the hips and your lower back takes over. All around bad

It's worse on sumo since you spread your legs apart. Harder to squeeze to hold it in

Any updates? did you short circuit in December like I did. I was fitting into my thinnest pair of jeans before Thanksgiving and then....yeah. This past week, I leaned back out pretty quick. Got a compliment I lost weight but they probably got used to December fat me.

I somehow fit into a pair of 30W chinos the other day. It was the highlight of my day. For the past 3 years I'd been wearing 32-33

Even sometimes had to use the hair tie trick for 31W pants. A girl showed me that if you looped a hair tie around the button, through the button hole, then around the button again, you could buy yourself another inch (if only it were that easy for other things)

Definitely gained weight (read fat) between Thanksgiving and New Years.

bulked up to 208lbs

working on a cut again. Itís slowly coming back down.

gonna try hard to cut this year and get my body fat down.



last week I tested my max for my lifts to get a baseline on where I am for 2019.

Squat = 385. Probably couldíve gotten 390-395 but I jumped to try 405, was able to get out of the hole but then I died.
Bench = 260 (competition style)
Deadlift = 405 (tried 420 next but couldnít lock out)

My deadlift has definitely been lagging and regressing since I changed my stance up 3 months ago.
2 weeks ago I changed it back to my old stance and Iíve started seeing some progression.

I played with my form all last year and my lifts went down. My original form was always the best.

I won't even write my goals but honestly, this past year was to get leaner and healthy and mission accomplished. Passed physical last month including cholesterol which was the only outlier in the prior year. Probably will continue to focus on leaning out with the cardio after rather than going balls to the walls on weights.

My shoulder has been bothering me, I think rotator cuff so my bench has plummeted. I think the heaviest I hit last year was 275 but the year before that 330. Plus weight loss hurts bench a little. I can't keep up with these 20 somethings. I know one dude reps 405 bench like nothing and another was squatting 495x6. Don't think I can hit those without some serious gear so meh to that.

Yea... there’s this Chinese guy I know at my gym.

hes probably 10 years younger than me but For his conventional DL...
He warms up with 3 plates.
Does 4 reps.
Goes to 4 plates.
Does another 4 reps.
And then bangs out a 5x5 at 495
and he doesn’t bounce the weights.

for bench he warms up at 2 plates and then does like a 5x8 at like 355

Ohh yea he does this all with no accessories.

No belt. No straps. No wrist wraps etc.

must be nice.


only thing for him is that is back squat sucks.
his max is 300. But thatís cause like 5 years ago he injured his back and has a mental block on squatting.

Iíve decided against this. Wonít be ready.

im aiming for a meet in May.

Should be plenty of time to cut and build strength.

Maybe drop down to the 83kg (182.984 pounds) weight class

Any of you guys have an Apple Watch and use a fitness tracking app for it? Mainly for weight lifting.

I don't want to carry a little notebook around to track my reps nor do I wanna dig my phone out every time. Narrowed it down to strong and gymaholic, will try something tomorrow

I have a Fossil smartwatch but don't really track. I know my lifts by memory but yeah I should write it down to push myself. I just can't commit yet...

I had an old Motorola 360 Smartwatch that I would wear while training. If I was doing something like light deadlifts or bar rows, it'd break off since your forearm expands a little when you squeeze hard and lift heavy shit. From then on, I take off my smartwatch to lift. The only apps I use are the timer and Spotify.

One day I'll get back to the point where I need to wear my weight lifting belt and wrist straps again smol boi problems

I would remember my weight before, but as I'm just starting out again it's hard to remember all the exercises and rep weights and quantities.

The idea of a timer for the next set is nice too. I sometimes get distracted in a conversation or by eye candy and forget to start again.

You'll be surprised how long people talk for especially a chatty dude. I typically take 3 minute breaks for the main lifts and even that might be enough time between the initial take off the belt, reset the timer, I'm tired rest, changing the weight, walk to the paper towel dispenser and back, roll on the roller to loosen up, change the song, put on the belt again, and get in position.
