    its time for a change, bulking and powerlifting - log


    first off this is the video that inspired me to make the decision in setting positive changes in my life...
    Bodybuilding motivation- **** NEGATIVE PEOPLE!! - YouTube
    I have officially removed myself from every negative scenario in my life which unfortunately included my fiancÚ and my career. the people I have loved the most have brought me down to the lowest point of my life and its time to put myself and my son first. enough of that.....
    ive officially entered in the http://palmettopowerlifting.com/StateMeet2013.pdf for single bench press only at 165lbs. this is my first ever comp of any kind and am hoping for a 285x1 press, a few weeks ago i was struggling for 225x1 and now im repping 225x5. im am not looking for any placement but more so the experience and the struggle with in my self.
    currently:
    5'5"
    163-165lbs goal 180 at 10% - no time frame
    32
    bench 245x1 - goal 285x1 in 7 weeks....

    diet is more of a recomp considering im at contest weight already as looks like this:
    pro-150g whole food, 10g f-luecine, 10g eaa's, 3 scoops pf3
    fats-80g, majority olive oil and nuts and seeds
    carbs-cycled pre/post training days only, low carb non training....
    cardio is 10min pre workout only

    im also still looking for hypertrophy overall but focusing on chest for now with the rest of the muscles being compound lifts on a 4 day split. i tend to use less iso movements anymore....

    8 months ago after mechabol/stano - 173lbs


    current finaflex 550xd-epiv-max pump - 163lbs

    Sorry to hear about your setbacks, Tech. I'm glad to see your motivation out of it all though. Definetly subbed. You're gonna have a lot of fun doing it.

    I had my first PL (full power) meet on Saturday, it was a great experience and I'm hooked.

    Signing up for a competition can bring a level of dedication and purpose to training that is hard to mimic elsewhere.

    Do you have any particular approach for your pressing?

    245x1 tonight after a few warmups and stretching, went into 250 but the spotter, for some freakin reason, decided to snatch the weight as I was 3/4 up...

    finished with drop sets on flat bench along with tricep work...

    Things are going great, I can't seem to get past 265x1..... ive been focusing on repping out 225. Before I was struggling to hit 225x1 and now I'm 5-6 reps per workout. Cals have been increased slightly and really only using max pump and dpol with bulk leucine.

    Least it went up. Sounds like you're right, with playing with 225. Using the submaximal weights and keeping your form tight, and bar speed fast, will still contribute to increasing your 1RM

    Plus with 225 for reps I can still incorporate hypertrophy
