Week 5/12 - Summary - training, diet and body weight.


Training

End of "volume/rehab", feeling healthy, form is good, weight is good so overall I'm good.
Next 4 weeks will be the "strength" micro cycle - 2 heavy workout (570 for reps and 650 for a single) and 2 heavy-speed workouts in between them.
Followed by a 3 week taper.
Now its time to turn up the intensity and destroy those deadlifts.
Ended with beltless 405lbs hb squat "atg".
Putting a belt on and doing another 2 weeks of Weight ramping up to 440-465 for a single w/a belt and then maybe another 2 weeks of weight ramping (maybe low bar?) if i feel so.


Body Weight
Sunday 220.1lbs | Monday 221.65lbs | Tuesday 219.85lbs | Wednesday 219.0lbs | Thursday 218.3lbs | Friday 220.5lbs | Saturday 219.4lbs
Weekly Avg - 219.85lbs (-1.85lbs)
Lowest - 218.3lbs (-0.9lbs)


Ate more then last week, dropped weight. Seems like if i eat under 3k i don't go down at body weight - probably NEAT related or stress hormones holding water?
Still no cardio because i do a lot of walking daily.
The only thing i'm "unhappy" about is my physique. Not as shredded with 3d muscles like i was 3 months ago and not wide as f*ck mass monster as i was last year - but im on a lot less drugs (250mg test e pw and 20mg var daily) and not tanned lol.


Total weekly calorie intake - 24,300kcal
Daily avg - 3,475kcal

So what was the cycle/doses you were on when you were on last year, and what did you weigh?

If this is for a deadlift-only meet entry like I thought it was, considering the recent back recovery & speed you’re ramping back up, my 2 cents from the peanut gallery here is not to max out low bar. If it’s not part of your total then it’s way too big of a liability & toll on recovery to be worth it to me. And if you do play with it, I would keep your efforts submaximal, like taking a single you think you could probably double. That could be a better compromise to get back under a 500+ squat without becoming an inroads to low back recovery.

I do think the deadlift layout sounds really good, for whatever that’s worth.

Last yeat somthing like 400 Test 800 bold and 100 tren and adrol 25-50.
3 months ago test 125, mast 300, tren 200, halo 20.

Thats exactly what i had in mind, just sub maximal low 5's sq (i have done 640 w/wraps and 565 w/o wraps but ay 240+).

Had extreme hunger (especially for carbs) at dinner.
Probably because of yesterdays workout, the volume starts to climb up.
Ate a big salad and a pound of chicken breast but i still had those carb cravings, even felt a bit hypo so i decided to give my body what it wants and ate a bunch of candy. Tuesdays and Saturdays i usually don't eat much so it balances out.

A man after my own heart.

Wife & I had a convo the other day, and both decided that our true favorite chocolate bar/candy, if we had to pick one, was Reese’s.

Kinder is pretty great too. I’m all about the fillings.

Is that a normal length barbell? I see you have the plates set out a good bit on the sleeves with the clamps, but the actual distance between the plates doesn’t seem overly far in the video.

Its an eleiko WL bar. I just put the plates further on "speed work" because it makes it more "unstable" at the knees. Being an explosive lifter sometimes a very flexible bar works against you.

Week 6/12 - Summary - training, diet and body weight.


Training

Did all i had to do, plyometrics added (and kicking my ass lol). Nice 505lbs speed deadlift.
Accessories maxed, gonna deload them on the next workout (wk7workout1/2) and keep upping the volume on the 2nd workout of the week only because recovery isn't optimal at all.


Body Weight
Sunday 219.4lbs | Monday 218.3lbs | Tuesday 220.1lbs | Wednesday 221lbs | Thursday 220.4lbs | Friday 222.6lbs | Saturday 222.5lbs
Weekly Avg - 220.6lbs (+0.75lbs)
Lowest - 218.3lbs (-0lbs)


A lot of stress, a lot of stress eating and lack of sleep. Uni kicking my ass.
Next week probably gonna be better if i put the effort to right time management.
Also some serious digestion problems on Friday/Saturday (hence the 2lbs weight gain?).


Total weekly calorie intake - 24,700kcal
Daliy avg - 3,550kcal

Are your jumps supersetted, as in immediately following the work sets of squat, or just alternated so you take a little rest before them?

I’ve never done jumping alternated with compounds, only ever all prior to beginning barbell work, so curious to hear your thoughts on them & what you get out of them.

Super setted.
I take off my belt and grab the sandbag.
The mix between heavy(ish) slow movement and an explosive movement when youre still not recovered from the heavy movement is something else man lol.

On weekends i work double night shifts and then another shift afternoon so sleep is doomed + had a big exam this week.
I try to get most of my work / studying load off my shoulders the next couple of week so i could really emphasis sleep when peaking. Life not always in tune with lifting goals unfortunately.
I feel your pain dude, my job changes hours and locations weekly and sometimes daily. My current schedule has me getting up at 3am, walking out the door at 415am and getting home at 7pm. If I hit the gym after, I won't get home till 9, eat dinner and then only got 5 hours till it's time to get up for work

Irony of life.
When you're young, healthy and full of energy you dont have time.
And when you're old and fragile (athletic sense) you have a lot of time on your hand.

So what did diet look like on this 2,200 calorie day, or other low days?
I was kinda wondering the same, do you have regular meals you eat or do you just kinda wing it till your full and hit your protein or calorie number for the day?
4 scoops of protein+ psylium + 400mg caffeine upon waking up and then just wing it.
Snacks (and protein coffes at uni) and then dinner with my girlfriend).

No, the "cycle" ended up being -

Test E 250mg e7d wks 1-12
Anavar 20mg ED wks 4-9

And 10 last days only will add tren A 50mg EOD and superdrol 10mg ED.

Less cosmtic effect with those "baby doses" but gives me the edege recocery wise and makes me adjust training accordingly instead of taking just more drugs.
