Lmao man I wish I took some pics from a month ago. Oh well!
Yeah, most of my friends been telling me to cut down. But I'm stubborn right now trying to get back to 3/4/5 strength. Current numbers are at
A month ago those were at:
While I know that rate of strength gain is veryyyy temporary, since I have been at 3/4/5 strength before at a lower bodyweight (competed at 163, walked at 170), I am confident I can get back to those strength numbers in 4-6 months if I'm not cutting, and having that strength would make subsequently cutting down much more efficient/easier in general.
For now, I've been focusing on getting my squat up to snuff. Once I can be doing 315 (belt less) for 5+ reps, I think then I'll be focusing on overhead pressing for a few months to get that up to around 185 for reps. No plans on training up to a 1rpm on anything for a while.Core. Legs. And overhead. Those seem to be my focus for now. Mainly posted to see if there were any glaring imbalances I wasn't aware of that I should keep in mind early on in my programming; also just wanted a masochistic humbling on my shit "do you even lift bro" physique. The good news is my girl loves the dad bod trend.
