    So the weekend was crap, diet wise and im hoping the 1kg i gained is water weight. Anyways, weekend was fun and now im back on low cals again. I feel much better eating healthy and not drinking, who would have thought that.

    Front Squats:
    3x5x72.5kg <-- doing these in front of a mirror is teh suck. I will have to stop doing that. I find i loose concentration because of it.

    Bench Press:
    3x5x60kg <-- Finally back to the big boy plates. Im trying to get used to tucking my elbows and i do feel stronger when im really tight. Hopefully with benching like this i can reach my goal before 2010.

    Deadlift:
    1x5x165kg <-- I was super psyched to do these. The last one was a grinder again but it didnt feel as heavy as the last time. 15kg to go!

    No accessory work because i couldnt be bothered!

    Thanks alot. Your deadlift is more impressive though. Im still playing catch up with you and Benno.

    For now it is 180 kg. I should make that in about a month. At that point 200kg will be the next goal. After that we will see.

    I love deadlifting, it is amazing. The intensity you can put in it is amazing. I completely loose any sense of where i am. Its just me and the weight that needs to go up.

    I really want to get a belt though. I feel that could help a bit, however i have no clue what to get.

    Try contacting him through the powerlifters.com.au forum, his username is TitanAustralia, I highly recommend using him. I don't use a belt currently mate, I don't feel I'm skilled enough yet in a regular squat to worry about belted. Maybe in a month or two though.

    Thanks for all the information. Good point you raise about being skilled enough. Maybe i will get one and use it whenever i finish off this cut. Thanks again Tom.

    Diet has been spot on the last couple of days. Weight was back down to last week's number, so hopefully i can get a loss when i weigh on Friday. Short but intense workout which was made more difficult due to the amount of dust that was in the gym. I wonder who thought it was a good idea to leave all the windows open when there was a "sand" storm.

    Back squat:
    1x20x70kg <-- 20 reps is such a mental thing. Every rep i want to give up and put the bar down. This felt pretty good though and im happy i did it.

    OH Press:
    3x5x47.5 <-- Shoulders are still uncomfortable when doing these but they dont really hurt. I do feel that it is hard for me to progress in this lift, not sure why.

    Power Clean:
    3x3x62.5kg
    2x3x60kg <-- I wasnt happy with form so i dropped the weight a little. I feel im not racking the bar like i should. Energy was also a bit low.

    Energy levels are starting to become more of a problem. Im tired when i wake up and tired throughout the day. Might have to incorporate more naps.

    So i have been looking at the website Tom directed me to and i like the looks of the following belt:



    However, im not sure what the difference is between having a belt with a lever and a normal belt. Also, i need to get more information on belts as it is. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I'd probably ask your questions about the belt in the WBB powerlifting foru, or in the australian forum mate, much more traffic ;-). Good work on the diet.

    belts are an awesome tool, most guys use them to push their abs against to create a stable base.

    I'm looking into a lever belt myself, you can get a lever belt MUCH tighter than a regular. You can also set it to the same position everytime, which is cool. 2 prong belts are OK, but sometimes you need another person to get it super tight for PR's.
