Hi all, dont know if you guys remember a post I made a couple months ago about doing reps from the pins. Basically for bench for example the safety bars are set just above your chest and thats the starting position. You pick a weight you can get 3-5 reps at.
Well my new personal bests are 365 bench. 375 squat. 225 military press. and 425 deadlift. I probably should have did lifts prior to gauge my progress. But I know my bench was about 315, squat about 285, deadlift about 350 and military about 175.
I have gotten stronger no doubt but not much size, maybe a little thicker. I can now see for size I would have to do alot of volume work. 4x10 at least with at least 2 exercises per body part? I work each body part once a week, not sure if that isnt enough. I think my dieting is doing ok. I eat 6-8 times a day between food and shakes. Getting about 250 grams a protein and about the same in carbs. 300 on a good day sometimes.
I was going make a video of me doing the lifts and was hoping to see others add to my post with there lifts. I get alot of advice here and do alot of reading. But there doesnt seem to be too many people (including myself) that have a pic or video of themselves, I though it might be nice and people might appreciate it. I know I would.
Well it was just an idea, let me know what you guys think. By the way, just so people get an idea about the size I have currently. Im 6' and about 225lbs. Not ripped by any means. Im about to start that phase now. So im expecting my personal bests to strat to drop since Ill be dieting and probably gonna feel a little weaker, maybe Im wrong.
