So last week I completed CT's power look program(or rather to the best of my ability). Really proud of myself as some of you know it is not easy! Anyways the program works!
Lil background.. For about a year and a half I was cutting weight, from 320 down to about 250. When I started this program I was actually GAINING weight at 2400 calories a day which shouldn't be the case at 6'5, 250 lbs. Anyways it was suggested to me I try and increase my overall strength because it was getting pathetic. Also I won't lie, I was neglecting leg day a bit because as a tall lifter with injuries that shit hurts! No Excuses!
Anyways I found CT's program and decided to just stick with my poverty macros of 2400 calories since I'm pretty sure my metabolism is fucked. Anyways I used to be a pretty strong dude so I'm sure some of this is muscle memory/cns but people that saw me before and after the program said I look a lot leaner, not sure if it's that or muscle growth(looking at those traps in pic 4)
Anyways here's what happened
32 years old, 6'5
Start weight - 253
End weight - 262
Bench Start - 225, End - 265
Front Squat - 205, End - 275
Deadlift - 315, End - 365
Push Press - 205, End - 240
Anyways like I said. I think I actually got leaner here despite gaining weight(all LBM gain?) Like I said up above I know my calories seem fucked.
I'd like to hit another cycle starting in 2 weeks and add some energy system work to try and lean out a bit but I'm unsure if this is the best method.
Any advice or thoughts?
