    Nice OH press man, how did the 420 feel? I see you didn't go for the 455.

    Nah, not this week. I'm sick, and I really shouldn't even be lifting because I know it's bad for the immune system. And I know I probably shouldn't be shooting for PR's on deadlifts either, lol. That's why I only went for a 5 lb. PR this week. Next week, I'll try the big 455. I actually strained my neck a bit with the 420, but that's because my head is really not into it today because of being sick and on a bunch of dayquil.

    My back is okay man. I didn't hurt it from squatting, but I felt I was really close to on Friday on one particular rep. I was okay though. I was a weird little "tweak" that just didn't feel right...hard to explain.

    I want to get relatively lean, then I want to start slowly building up a good strength base again, but with almost all clean foods. I was getting too fat before. I'd say another month of cutting max, and I should be relatively low BF.

    Good luck bro.

    Guys like Heavybomber are my main influences. He's able to get ridiculously strong and stay lean as s***, so that's what I'm going for.

    Hey bud just checkin in. Looking sick as usual. Thats some solid volume, makes me tired just reading the numbers! Looks like there are several of us in the same mind set...get to lower bf and then slowly add mass. Im on that same bandwagon.

    Ya, I know a lot of guys on here are all about the dirty bulk, but personally I like being lean and strong rather then being strong and having a big gut.

    I firmly believe that if you get lean enough, you can "dirty bulk" without gaining a gut, but I understand what you are saying. Fat is gonna come with the muscle either way, but Id certainly sacrifice a slight bit 'o gains if I could keep lean. We shall see. My last bulk was certainly dirty, but I had cut for months on end so I let myself enjoy a few things I probably shouldnt have. Not this time

    I honestly don't think I have ever been "lean" since I was like 14 years old and I used to skateboard every single day and lift weights. I actually had abs back then, lol.

    I don't care for abs really, but not having a big flabby gut is always nice I think.

    I agree. I used to race bmx and rode everyday, all day when I was young. It wasn't til I was older when I realized how good of shape I was in back then. As for being a huge powerlifter, I think its cool but I would never want to be huge with a big gut.

    I agree as well. I was reading an article about these big PLers worrying about type 2 diabetes because of their diets. How big do you wanna get, bri?

    I don't really have a max size that I want to get, but I just want to keep getting stronger and stronger, but remain relatively lean at 200 - 210 lb. range.
