Ive always been and extremely good presser. My first day lifting when i was 15 my max on bench press was 150.
I find it extremely strange that my squat and bench are only 10 pounds apart.
Ive been following an intermittent fast protocol since may and absolutely love it. Weight has stayed the same but ive have clearly lost alot of fat especially around the midsection Plus I love the feeling of lifting on an empty stomach. Feel more focused and more alert.
Started lifting when I was 15 for football and was mostly just going through the motions. Yet I still grew. Gained 15 pounds my first month going up to 190 Stayed there for awhile. Took up wrestling my junior and senior year and wrestled in the 160 pound weight class. I was so thin back then. Still had my natural strength but lost all of my “gym strength.” Then after college I started getting into fitness alot more and started surfing on tnation and took the attitude that is extremely prevalent on here and just eat everything i could for one whole year. Well… it worked but I was a fat piece of shit. Got up to 230 pounds and my strength barely increased I think i was following a TBT routine at the time. My sophmore year of college I got sick of being fat and started looking towards Dorian Yates as an inspiration I followed his exact routine for a year and eat better and did no cardio and got down to 175 pounds with abs semi visible. HIT burns you out though and it defintely burned me out So i switched to GVT for 2 1/2 years and gained 10 pounds during that time. Not much but still it was progress and my body fat even decreased. Yet i was not strong so i started looking around for programs and found westside first. I never liked it so I switched to 5/3/1 and loved it. Wendler’s attitude is amazing. My deadlift increased 100 pounds in a year and my squat jumped 50 in a year Ive thought about doing a powerlifting meet but idk yet
