    Yeah you have a baby tear likely - my second tear was right there too, and basically it didnít cost me anything. Just like you said, just a lil bit of pain, light bruise, then no biggie. Just be smart and let it heal; pump stuff way shy of failure for a few weeks would be smart. My first tear at the top of the bicep was definitely worse; I had to back off of that one for months to let it heal safely.

    Overall feeling pretty good today, ate heaps of food yesterday. I am going to start tracking food again now and in a couple weeks wind back into a slight deficit til xmas. I am going to enter a novice PL comp in february, for which I would like to compete in u103kg division, so sub 103kg is my BW goal now.
    Bench today, using a belt (feel so much better afterwards when I use the belt) worked up to:
    135kgx3, 135kgx3 - the best looking triple I have performed with this weight so far - 135kgx3 - another nice set! Form is dialling in - 135kgx3, 130kgx2 - spent too long setting up
    Seated cable row 50 for 3x15
    Isolat pulldown (could feel the left bicep at the bottom) 125kg for 3x10
    Strict OHP 55kg 3x5
    All power meets are novice - there is no pro powerlifting because itís not organized enough with 100 bloody federations lol

    Should be exciting!

    Nice work though bro. I almost used a belt today for mine (which Iím struggling with a bit), what do you feel it adds?
    Core stability for better leg drive, plus it keeps my belly from popping out mid rep

    I wear the belt really high and when I fit it I squeeze my lats and push my chest out so it kind of locks the thoracic joint in place, making it easier for me to squeeze shoulder blades back and down (this is harder than it should be for me because I am a bit of a hunchback). Filling the diaphragm against the belt lifts the thorax which assists with core stability and i think ties bum to bench a bit better during leg drive.
    Here's the vid for my third set, which is one of the best triples I have performed with this weight:

  3. Tues 6th November, Accidental Squat Session
    I thought it was Wednesday for the first 2hrs of today, and launched balls deep into skwaats a day early. Also, only rack I could get onto was in the bro section, so I found myself squatting in front of the mirror which, as it turns out, is ****ing terrifying. Anyway, ate a teaspoon of concrete and worked up to:
    180kg, 185kg for 2x3, then backed off for 3x3 with 160kg. My right groin is tight af, and my right knee is swelling up which I think is csusing me to shift to the left. Think I might start using wraps for my next progression cycle as I have found these take a lot of pressure away from the knees.

    Yesterday's food:
    178p 310c 137f for 3270cal

    Get some heat on that knee! Maybe a warm cream or a hot shower and let the stream heat it for a bit. Hope it feels better; nice squattiní

  7. Friday 9th November Chesty bro
    Feeling pretty crappy after 3 hot days at work with gastro or maybe mild heatsroke - I'm not sure.
    35kgdb 75kgbb benchpress: 8,5; 10,5; 8,5; 8,5; 8,5
    Cable rows '50' 5x12
    Strict OHP 50kg 2x6, 1x8
    Isolat pulldown 80kg 3x8 '1.5s'
    Rope tricep pushdown dropsets x3

  8. Monday 12th November
    Feeling swollen and achy after spending friday night and saturday in hospital with my son waiting for his op. In stressful situations where I have no control I impulsively eat, and after hrs in a hospital this is mainly vending machine food. Good news is, his tongue is all stitched up and he is talking and eating again.
    Today I am fasting til lunch to regain control of my eating.

    Deloaded my bench today with 90kg for 5x3, then did some light rows, light ohp, light pulldowns, and a ton of mobility work. My right hip and knee are a little banged up atm.

    Good to hear he’s doing well mate

  10. Tuesday 13th November : rest day

    No training today, really struggling with hip/back pain.

    Yesterday's food:

    157p 315c 69f for 2402cal

  11. If you can get 10 min roll/mash everything that pulls on them. IT Bands, quads, ham inserts, piriformis, hip flexors, upper groin, bottoms of your feet, even lats. Mash/roll all of those areas and then lightly stretch the hips after and it can make a big difference on back/hip pain with all of that stuff not tugging on your problem areas like when tight.

    You probably know all that but itís so easy to dismiss and skate by without, but at some points it is really worth it.

    I've been rolling every night but I think I have tweaked something in my groin - I'm thinking I have reinjured my psoas. Actually feels ok today, however I took one more day off to catch some zzz's this morning. I will deload my squat tomorrow, hopefully with no issues at full rom.

  13. Food yesterday:

    194p 228c 123f for 2732cal. I am fasting every day between 6pm snd 10am now, trying to eat 3250cal but struggling to feel hungry enough. Going to start proper cut next week, will also get bloods done as I have a bit over 1months worth of s4 in my cupboard.

  14. If deloading anyway consider a parallel or high boxsquat to give the ROM a break perhaps even

  17. Thurs 15th November Skwaats deload
    Put the wraps on today, 5 turns - not as tight as for heavy squats. Worked up to:
    140kg 6x3. Knee and hip felt a lot better in wraps.
    Leg ext '80' for 20,20,15
    BW pullups for 4x5, 1x8
    Seated rows '60' 3x10

  18. Food wed 14th November:
    193p 302c 132f for 3168cal.

    This morning weighed in at 104.5kg

  19. Friday 16th November back & bis

    Well, I lost 3kg in a week and now I look like an old man. Too much too fast, and it is unusual for me, but I think it comes down to a combination of factors including the stress of last weekend, ran out of laxo, and the IGF inhibition from nolva. Oh well, gotta roll with the punches, niggt as well get balls deep into this cut.

    Kind of a light session today:
    Wide grip bw pullup 5x5
    Chinup for 8,8,6,6
    20kg preacher curls for 3x10 - left bicep really weak and this was an rpe9
    Ezibar curls 3x12 with 22.5kg
    Cable concentration curls in the fly machine 10kg each arm for 10,9,8
    HS unilateral plate rows 3x6 each side
    Deadlift deloadz 180kgx3, 3x1
    Cable row 60 for 3x6

    Food yesterday: 137p 369c 119f for 3189cal. Still gassing out a lot this morning despite eating close to maintenance.

    Sometimes balls deep is the only way to go mate

  21. Saturday 17th November

    Feeling trashed today, starting to feel I am making a poor recovery from this cycle. Going to get bloodwork next week and find out what is going on.
    35kgdb 60kgbb benchpress supersets 6:5, 8:5, 8:5, 6:5
    Cable row dropsets x3sets
    Strict OHP 52.5kg 3x5
    Cable rope tri dropsets - these were abysmal - 3sets
    Cable bar dropsets - not so bad - 3sets.

    Heres a vid of my OHP (2nd set). Any form pointers would be welcome:

  22. Consider using a belt when you overhead press, especially strict press, as when it gets to RPE 9+ you are going to have to ďlay backĒ for the press-out and then use upper abdominal flexion to pull the head through to finish.

    When that happens, youíre going to want the belt - youíll be lifting in thoracic extension.
