Been just rolling through food lately, and my body just wants more it seems. Feeling relatively lean. Just going to keep rolling with it for another couple weeks I think. Have a wedding to go to late April so maybe I'll start a month cut come late March.

Lifted chest yesterday. My chest is naturally pretty large, sometimes I feel like I shouldn't lift it so the rest of my body can catch up proportionally haha. Arms this morning, ran a few miles, and 3/4mile on incline treadmill. Feeling good!

This week has been weird for me.

Hit 225 x 1, then 225 x 2, then 185 x 8 on bench utilizing the slingshot. I think next week I should be able to hit 215 - 225 on my own which would be huge.

Hit back and bi's last night. Couldn't get my PR of 345 up for 1 rep. Then 315 felt kinda heavy for me. In a weird funk right now.

My thumbs are bothering me from going heavy on bench. I also have a bad tendency to hold the bench via suicide grip.

Annoyed that I'm behind were I should be for deadlift to hit 405 within 2-3 months. I should be at 355/365 right now.

Go for it. You can even go light, like about 50-60% of your 1RM but be explosive and try to stay within a 18 minute time cap.

I have a cheap knock off one but it works pretty damn good. A good 10 minute use really loosens things up. Id definitely recommend it but no need to go dropping several hundreds on a TimTam or Hypervolt

Not trying to preach....but you need to break that habit with the grip on your bench. I've seen way too many accidents and you will really slow down your goals if injured.

Just don't want to see you get hurt. If it helps, remember you are trying to bend the bar in an arc after you are setup and have your scapula retracted..

Obviously the bar isn't bending, but this helps trigger the lat engagement you need to up your bench numbers.

It's tricky to get a feel for it, but once you do it will feel odd when you don't do it.

So funny thing happened during my morning workout. I had a chick compliment me on having nice nipples! I said "my nipples?" She said "yes!" And I was like wtf? I was wearing a cutoff shirt and I guess on some movements my nipple would be exposed and she noticed it. She said there's some guys who have big ugly nipples. She said its gross when she sees guys wearing cutoff shirts with big nipples, sagging nipples or dad bod nipples. I was laughing the whole time cause I never once heard about chicks talking about dude nipples.

Even my buddies say the same. For some strange reason suicide grip feels comfortable for me, but you're absolutely right.

I always tell myself to relax or its volume day but I get carried away easily. Trying to find moderation between when its ok to push myself and when to back off a bit.

Find yourself a program if your not following one. I recommend Wendler 3/2/1 as it sounds like it's right up your alley. It focuses on the 3 big lifts, and lets you add in auxillary exercises for the small body parts. If you have an Android phone, there are plenty of apps that are free with it. I use one called zero to hero. In it I select powerlifting as opposed to bodybuilding, then select the Wendler program I want.

Basically you tell it how many days you want to be in the gym, plug in your maxes, and it will generate a program that will adjust weight and volume for you. Then at the end, it gives you a week of active recovery where you are still working out, but cutting back enough to start your next cycle.

Plus it will have your set weights, and you just plug in your reps. It will automatically adjust for new 1 rep maxes automatically for your next cycle start.

Wendler is a hybrid Westside program, and has produced some very strong people.

Thats pretty dope. I didn't know about that and will give it a try. Thank you!
