1st Round Playoff Exits
about to deadlift again today. my back hasn’t suffered from it. i think i found my new favorite thing now aside from calisthenics. maybe this is just a natural progression lol.

still not benching though:ufdup:
Benching has always been overrated


But squats, deadlifts and cleans are goated.

i fukked up my first rep of 405 sumo today but cleaned it up with one rep of the conventional stance for some reason. step down from my 405x3 last time but this shyt is addicting. i can feel my power and grounding getting way stronger already

@Son Goku Breh, how should I go about fixing an uneven bench press? Bar is leaning too much towards my more dominant side (right) and it's putting an odd strain on my right shoulder...Can't even do incline BP as effectively anymore, had to switch to DB press

I'm pulling my scapula back when I start but once I start getting towards the last couple reps in a set it seems like something just gives...idk if its a shoulder injury that I carried over or my left side just lagging behind.

Still gonna keep lifting, but I do need to nip it in the bud ASAP

:whoa:

A fleeting childhood
:gucci:Im already eating Keto...I never hit close to my daily caloric intake and Im still dropping BF. You want me to be slim as hell :russ:. Today in the gym I weighed 287 lbs. Im in a XL shirt tho and 34 jeans. I just dropped a jean size.

I carb up on October 1st. Imma run Keto til I get to a Large shirt and 32 jeans. Then Imma carb up every 2 weeks instead of 1.

Last time I did cardio and keto I almost died. Got to small and kept fainting. Was never hungry and went 3days without eating....talk about a bad time.
Man

So you plan on cutting roughly 50lbs at a fast pace while running keto….we the same height and that 267 gotta look sloppy as shyt in the XL shirt.





You gonna end up looking like a new born Shar pei or you gonna further hurt yourself badly off your body shutting down on you as you try to somehow add hundreds of lbs of strength in that same time frame

Primo for breakfast, deca for lunch, tren for dinner..... :mjgrin:

Still not happening. Dudes don't go from the 1000 pound club to the 1500 pound club in 1 year, even on gear, while simultaneously dropping bodyfat and starving themselves on keto. :usure:

I have no idea, especially without seeing it. :yeshrug: The fact that you've been like that means it's a chronic issue with your form that hasn't been fixed yet. :huhldup:


And since apparently bench is overrated anyways, you midas well bush it and just do push-ups. :youngsabo:


The hell you need a bench press to play soccer for? :camby:

Nah, that was @Serious saying bench is overrated. I never said such a thing.

Soccer is my cardio, still gotta lift :manny:

I think it might be an injury in my right shoulder cause that thing is funny. Ima try to get a video next time..

Push-ups the GOAT tho
