Im so happy, I just got back from the gym, and today was ME lower day. My previous max was 305, and today i pulled 335 no problem. This is only my second cycle of westside, so I know these are kinda newbie gains, but its a giant leap toward my goal of 400.
(Im 5’11" @ 180lbs, so this isn’t amazing, but is a PR)
I normally pull sumo, but was feeling my back and abs were weak. So while I was doing EDT, I pulled more with a narrow stance, and started targeting my abs more, with some decline situps. Ive also been doing some zercher squats which nail your back.
Went in, and my core felt solid, just ripped it up from the floor. I stopped short of my true max, because I had already pulled two lifts above my previous max. (Did 295, 315,335)
Another thing was my confidence, yesterday and today, I was getting pumped up to max, and it just felt like 305 was nothing. I knew I was gonna blow that away before I even stepped into the gym
Should I try to go higher next week and milk the gains, or back off for a while? Thanks everyone for the advice on ab training, it helped a ton.
