Holy shit, I was just looking for some input. I just need some general direction from guys that no what they are doing. Yes, I do no how to cut correctly to maintain strength. I am just looking for something to compete in in.
It’s very hard for me to train unless I have some kind of competition to train for. I used to wrestle, but I fell short there. After that, I took my running much more seriously, but burned out and quit putting in 80 mile weeks about 1.5 months ago, right after running a 1:18 half marathon.
During my half marathon training I attempted a deadlift and pulled 355 at a bodyweight of 146, without straps. The only reason my 405 was with straps was because I injured my forearm, and the grip is somewhat weak at the moment.
I didn’t come on here to get my dick sucked or anything, and I do realize my lifts are not anything that special. I just was wondering what I could do with some training.
Also, this is the first time in my life that I haven’t had to stay smaller for my sports, so I am not against weight gain whatsoever. If you guys thought I should keep moving up in weight, just say so. Don’t be pricks about it. I’ve dealt with weight classes my entire life, so don’t hate on me just because I use the word “cut”.[/quote]
What the fuck is your problem kid? You started off this thread asking for advice on what weight class to compete in and it appears everyone gave you a reasonable and straightforward response, which is that with your lack of experience in PL competitions, you’re better off not worrying about weight classes.
Just train to get strong and whatever class you weigh in at on meet day is the class you compete in. this is pretty standard advice for newbies, if you don’t like the responses then don’t fucking ask. How’s that for hostility?
If you wanted specific training advice then maybe you should have led with that. Stick to marathons. I wouldn’t want someone like you on a platform behind me.
