Benefits of the cycle are super clear. Your leanness is extremely noticeable and obviously based on sides/etc you have felt the teen doing its thing.

I can’t wait to see what tren does for you in a bulk/maint scenario cuz that (for strength at least) should be even more amazing.

Just gonna bump my own thread back up.....

I was running a specific powerlifting program during this cut and finished it today with a mock meet.

weight wise I’ve add 3lbs since the cut ended and I dropped back to a cruise dose but at least 1-2 of that will be water after dropping the mast.

anyway, bodyweight at 216 this morning and totalled 1,120lbs today (Covid stopped the boys coming over was by myself in my home gym. Did it properly though in set up and structure).

Whilst very average in terms of numbers that’s over 100lbs on my best lifts at this body weight and approx 90% of the best I’ve done on a blast weighing 20lbs + more so I was pretty stoked.

sets a great base for the Xmas blast and I’m really confident I should finally start to get into the proper numbers.

Glad to hear you made some bodyweight PRs and came out healthy! Like you said, building some great forward momentum for the future cycle too.

Something I would tell my younger self is to always keep it light for a few weeks following a meet. I have been hurt more than once in the weeks immediately following a contest. And it’s not just me - this is one of the most common times to get hurt for a powerlifter, besides peaking on high androgens where strength is zooming up fast. So just train smart and avoid failure on any compound movements. Leave a few in the tank and do more submaximal work. Only consider failure on things like tricep extensions. Give your body time to deload from the stress of today.

I said in another thread that I’m always pleased when the notification shows Hyde has commented on something as I know I’m about to do some learning 😂

Just trying to spare him the stuff I learned the hard way! Tore and re-tore both QL muscles for months because I had to max on pulls with the gang 3 weeks post a very successful meet. Cost me over a year of setbacks.

yaaaaas! thank you! im SERIOUS! :)
Learn to mentally multiply by 2.2 (double it, then add a tenth of the new number to itself). Or just memorize certain common numbers so you can eyeball them. This will be great for a Strength fan because even US meets are often listed in kg, and a lot of strongman is since the rest of the world uses metric.

3 plates/side in America=315lbs
3 blue plates=308lbs (140kg)
