    Yeah I used to use bands quite a bit, need to start throwing them in more. Bar speed is real pretty good with 205, been using that weight for a while though, need to up it.

    Nice. I like bands mostly for speed work. My recovery goes to **** unless I keep my speed work really light. I keep it around 40%+minis. I haven't seen you speed benching lately though is this something you're re-introducing into your routine?

    Yep. I wasn't doing any speed work while I was cutting because I wanted to be cautious about over training with such low cals.

    Back and Bi's

    Rack Pulls (below knee)
    315 x 10
    405 x 5
    495 x 5
    545 x 1
    565 x 1
    580 x 1
    590 x 1
    600 x miss

    Barbell Shrugs
    405 x 10
    455 x 15

    Lat Pulldown
    150 x 10
    200 x 5
    250 x 11

    Seated DB Curl
    25 x 10
    30 x 10
    35 x 5
    40 x 5
    40 x 5
    40 x 5

    Definitely a PR on rackpulls. These were done from the second to bottom pin, just below my knees. Really focused on keeping my chest high and sitting back/keeping my lower back arched; felt really really good. 600 was close, got it off the pins easy but couldn't lockout those last few inches.

    Rack pulls are definitely impressive. I will say that I was expecting a bit more knowing that you've damn near had 550 clean from the floor. Then again are you stronger off of the floor compared to the lockout position?

    I'm looking forward to some big numbers over these winter months?

    Yeah, it's strange I admit but I've always pulled less from below my knees than I have off the floor. Doubt that's still the case as I definitely don't have 590 in me off the floor yet but it's still close. Once I get above the knees my rack pulls jump a lot. I've pulled around 700 a couple times just above the knee, no hitching/using my legs for leverage.

    Chest and Tris

    Bench
    135 x 15
    135 x 15
    225 x 5
    275 x 3
    315 x 6
    325 x 4

    ~Wide Grip~
    275 x 9

    ~Close Grip~
    135 x 10
    225 x 5
    275 x 2
    225 x 5

    So I kinda ****ed up and didn't eat much today. I've been up since 8 am and in the past 12 hours I've probably had 800 calories or so. Doesn't work well when you plan on lifting heavy, lol. I literally felt like I'd run a marathon by the time I got to close grip, energy was so pathetic I decided to call it a day. In hindsight I should have just taken a deload, although I'm somewhat pleased with 315 x 6 seeing as I felt like absolute ****.

    I have a feeling I need to up my cals overall, at least on the days I lift. Soreness hasn't been a big issue but I'm ****ing exhausted 24/7. I've also lost a little more fat these last couple weeks, shoulders and chest are seriously shredded when I get some blood flowing. Some days I look leaner than when I cut down for my meet which is ****ed up since I've been eating more. Guess that means my diet's working?

    I've been trying to work on my posing, rear lat spread is the hardest imo, lemme know if you guys think it looks good. I've always had trouble keeping both sides level, I think it's getting better.

    No I just don't wanna get fat, lol. Like I said I'm trying to bulk with as little fat gain as possible. Might hinder strength progress a little bit but worth it imo.

    OIC. Yea you've been as high as what, 230? So I assume its not hard for you to become a fatty if you bulk wrong. I'm pretty much the opposite lol. I'll cut down to 185 on a 4,000 calorie diet. Its a rare mentality on this board but fat+strong does not=good in my book. Strong + lean=good

    It sounds stupid/obvious but the longer I train the more I realize carrying extra fat does absolutely nothing for you in the gym. I used to have the eat eat eat mentality, thinking the heavier I was the stronger I'd be, no matter what.

    Also, **** your metabolism, lmao. 4k cut wtf bro. I was cutting on less than 2k cals for quite a while.

    Really focusing on depth with squats, literally touching my ass to my calves. I definitely feel my hams working a little when I sit that low. Planned on doing some GM's but just didn't feel like it. Looks like my plan to hit my hams hard every week has already failed, lol.

    I know how you feel. After an intense squatting session I feel wiped out and ready to leave.

    I had to stop and re-grip between reps 2 and 3 on my last set of deads, didn't wanna risk dropping it half way up. In reality it was more like 510 x 2 x 2, but the rest was real short so I'll call it one set, lol.

    Really? Can you elaborate on this? Every powerlifter I know would disagree with this. I personally would much rather be lean and strong for health reasons and aesthetics, but I gotta say, no matter what I ****ing do in the gym, I never get stronger unless I get my weight up.

    I hear the leverages excuse all the time but I don't buy it. The only reason I could see being fat as a positive is having a shorter ROM on bench. Bench was the only lift I lost much strength on when I cut down.

    Obviously increasing your weight will help if it's mostly lbm. What I literally meant was fat doesn't help you lift the weight. I notice no difference in strength/strength gains now as opposed to when I carried 40+ extra pounds. I'm also in better cardiovascular shape now, which lets me get in more volume work than I used to. Biggest problem I had when I was a fatass was gassing extremely fast.
