#1

17 year old : bw 235 lbs 6’0
deadlift: 620
squat : 475
bench : 405
I’m giving a try to the Super-Accumulation training
(there is no leg curl machine in my gym but I have my rugby trainings so ı hope it will balance it.)
I changed the front squat to ATG Platz stance squats where the prime movers are quads.

Mental Side of things :

whats really hard for me is the snatch grip deadlift and it’s volume ; I’m not really used to save my strength for deadlift reps and sets , I would normally go through some warmups then hit a 1 rep max then do something like a 3x5 .

Day 3 was especially hard since the start, I walk 4 miles to the gym and after the workout the walk really killed me. I hoped I would be able to make it home .
but in the morning of Day 4 I was feeling really good actually and I hit a little pr.

Of course It’s too soon to talk and it’s hard for real (each set balls to the wall) I hope I can finish the 2 week period.

Day 9 : still the only thing bugging me is the snatch grip deadlifts they fuck up my lower back make it so hard to rerack the weights etc.

Rest Period ( rest week )
Current weight 235 lbs

Rest day 3
bw 240 lbs (the process seems to be going good but I have a lack of hunger (never happened before)

Final rest day : I gained somewhere 14 pounds at the peak but the last 3 days of my rest I really meesed up my diet I didn’t get enough (close to nothing) calories and lost some weight and didn’t sleep well at all. I’m a little sad about it

So max weight reached : (empty stomach) :250 lbs

I tried to pull 675 today got it about knee height then failed.
