1800+ Raw Total And 800+ Deadlift Drug Free 181 Class


We all have a day here and there that just lacks drive. Glad your back didn't give you issue at least.


Not sure what you mean but I never enjoy reps. I was getting out of breath with 135x10s on squat yesterday so I keep it heavy cause I would rather hit 335x4 instead of 225x20 or 275x10 on bench for example


Its still not great but I feel it will heal up. Like right now it would probably give me problems squatting 315 but I wont be hitting that or more till next week. I'm just hoping I don't lose strength while I get back up. And it kind of screwed me on the numbers I'd like to hit for the comp. I might not beak 1600 this time.


Back felt much better today. Hit some light squats and heavy decline bench. tomorrow I'll be kettle bell benching I haven't been keeping up with it but its great for my shoulders no problems now but I want to keep it that way.

Squat went
barx10, 135x10, then sets of 5 adding 20 lbs each set up to 295 and pausing the reps over 195.

Decline bench
Went 135x10, 225x10, 295x5, 350x5- was slow and guy kind of stole the top of it. 375x2, 395x1

decline was solid today video is up now. I added a quick intro for you guy. If you like to watch middle weight lifters and like me realized none keep up with their videos then subscribe to my channel vincent pachuta. I'll update weekly at least and answer any questions you post. thanks guys. Follow me on my way to the top.


Took a day off today.

Not seeing anything


Worked up to a paused 360 on flat bench
Then a drop set of 320x4 paused. Also slowly adding weight to squat hit 365x5 today


where are you located, bow season starts for us in 3 days. Itching to get out there


Nj. Our season opened the 10th. I haven't shot anything yet but my buddys dad got his doe then a 120s class buck 8 pointer


Good luck to you, Im down in SC got a good gig with an older guy whos got 100 acres of private land that nobody has hunted before. I prob wont get out till end of october though its just way too damn hot


Good luck to you to. I was sweating my ass off this weekend. I got about 200 acre but its public but the woods are very thick and havent seen any sign of anyone else hunting it so I'd like to think I'm the only one lol


True, prob bc most people dont wanna sit in a stand when its 90 something degrees out. I usually hunt public land but havent had much success with it. Not sure about NJ but seems like a lot of people deer hunt in SC and most public spots get filled up quick.. too much pressure makes the deer go nocturnal within the first week


I'm hoping no body wants to go in there. There are a lot of seed ticks and its hard to find areas open enough to shoot


Just gave her a pass. Hitting the gym now


Hit some deadlift work and weighted dips
Nothing great today. Didn't take a preworkout cause its so late. Just half a rockstar. Body weight is down considerably as of lately about 182-183

Deadlift went
135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 405x5, 495x5, 565x3, 585x2, 605x1, 625-miss ( more then usual sets leading up and just wasn't into it today)

weighted dips went ( plates)
1x8, 2x8, 3x8, 4x5


Good stuff, I got two more days!! Your not making it any easier haha


Hit some decline bench, leg press, kettle bell bench and front squats for a quick work out.

135x8, 185x5, 225x5, 275x5


Hit some squats and mid weight bench
Anyone feel like uncomfortable when you squat without knee sleeves after using them for months?.

Squats went
135x8, 225x5, 315x5, 365x5, 405x7. No sleeves or belt.

Bench no spotter so kept it on the lighter side
135x10, 225x18, 295x6, 325x3


Hit some bench and deficit deadlfts

Bench went
135x10, 225x8, 275x4, 315x1, 355x2 wanted 3 but my lift off sucked

Deficit deads with 35lb plates
115x8, 185x5, 255x5, 325x5, 395x5, 465x5, 535x1. Legs were pretty tired at this point and my music cut out I probably had 3 in me but said fuck it


Hit some leg press and band bench today.

Bench went
135x10, 225x12, 275x6, 320x2, 325x paused single


Thought my back was 100% for the most part sad to say I don't think I can compete in nov. Unracked 425 today and had Painful tightness that wont go away. not as bad as last time but not good. Rather then hit a token 500lb squat snd risk screwing myself I'm going to just shoot for feb. Up until two weeks ago I really felt I'd hit 1600 then last week still thought I'd manage a pretty solid total. But with this its just not going to happen. Dropped the weight down and hit a hard set 315x20 beltless. Going to take it slower getting into heavy weight. Bench and deadlift are still strong. Pause benched 350x2 today after 320x6 tng.
