I did hit new PRs using not so perfect form yet I still feel very weak compared to a lot of lifters. Ive decided to take up PLing so I can no longer be a weak *****. Im definitely going to keep my BF in check and will always have lower than 15% (at least ill try). The good thing about that is if I wanted to be ripped, dedicate 2-3 months to cutting and voila, a not so toned body is now alot more toned (assuming the cut was done properly).
I seem to be fighting an uphill battle. Its pretty evident now that im not pro or competition quality in terms of genetics. Ive trained long enough to know if im made to lift (my technique isnt that bad which removes that factor). I dont see myself with a total surpassing 1000 in a long time... My newbie gains were kind of wimpy and everything after is going to slow down. I just started BB benching after doing DB for a long time and 135 felt like a tonne of bricks. I usually bench 65 DB 5x5 on a dang incline with no problems yet struggled on the last rep of a 5x5 135 on a BB flat... Talk about a depressing workout.
I think a knowledgeable lifting partner would do me well but those seem to be scarce. Luckily my university will be opening up a lifting club which I will join and hopefully get help from some PLers there if there are any.
I feel like Dinobot switching from the Predicons to the Maximals
