    Strategy is paying off, good deal on it all, especially the benching and major movements.

    blah ....im frustrated and not sure what to do...im obviously not recovering from all the running and crap and my strength has been crappy lately...squats felt heavy as hell and my back and everything kept collapsing so i just lowered the weight and still wasnt that easy....lol the only strategy i have is to keep lifting fatigued and hopefully make gains so when i do get a chance to drop some of the extra stuff my numbers can take off

    My guess is you tweak the diet some and you will be more better off, since most of this is diet anyways.

    You are doing a lot, props on that alone.
