How did your consultation with Bryce Lewis go? I missed this weekend's threads desu
>>
>>35660506
it was interesting. I think i'm going to go with the coaching for the 11 weeks or so before collegiate nationals. Form was he suggested using a narrower bench grip as a variation and bringing my sumo stance in a tad. He said raising the bar position on my back when squatting would likely lessen any bicep/shoulder pain i have and wouldn't negatively affect my squat.
My biggest question was on the benefits of coaching in general, not with TSA coaching. He said he shared my concerns that coaching really isn't necessary or helpful to many types of people. Nutrition wise he wants me to track my food consumption for a little bit and we might make adjustments.
Seemed like a really smart and nice guy desu.

I could of figured he might suggest that, he was bringing his own sumo in a little while back, said it was good IIRC and I've seen him suggest/program close grip bench for basically everyone/everything. The TSA 9wk is chock full of it.

11 weeks is what you'll have left after this sheiko cycle, right?

I'm only saying that because I've actually seen a cambered safety bar.

I have no idea if its a thing or just something the owner whipped up (he's a welder, I think. Something in that line of work). But it exists. And it terrifies me.

All meets should be over the course of 3 days. First day bench, second day deadlift and third day squat because nobody likes squats.

Squats are so bad. Why can't they replace squats with power cleans?

Mmmhmmm

You can tell me bby I don't care
>>
>>35662391
I'm on starting strength and on the later stage novice phase you deadlift less frequently and do back extensions before chin-ups.
Due to the high frequency of back extensions I wouldn't be able to do RDL, perhaps good mornings, however my hamstring flexibility isn't good enough to do them properly.

is it worth lifting at a powerlifting gym?

A gym called DBS opened recently and its relatively close to me, probably like a 15 minute drive with no traffic. But its $1000 a year and i am currently only paying $375 a year. Its a lot of money senpai.
>>
>>35663157

Depends on the gym.

A lot of the time, you're paying a bit for equipment and a lot for the convenience of having a good lifting crew all centered in one place. If they don't have that or you don't benefit from it, the cash isn't well spent.

Who /RTS/ here?

This week looks hard as fuck tbqh, I'll do everything I'm supposed to but it's gonna be some looooong days.
>>
What the fuck lads. I just failed a squat set in sheiko . I had 2x3 @85% on my first part of squats. The doubles were so heavy and grindy I decided against risking an injury and only did a single for the 3rd set. Last week 80% flew up for triples.
Bit confused and sad tbqh. I hope it's just a bad day ;_;
>>
>>35664939
You didn't really 'fail' it then, did you? What are you doing and how far into it are you?
>>
>>35664939
did you inflate your squat max?
>>
>>35664939
Also there's literally nothing wrong with grinding the shit out of some of your training reps here and there.
>>
>>35664984
4th week of large load intermediate prep 1.
>>35664989
With real maxes. I ran this same program befofe with squat inflated by 5kg without any major problems.
Fwiw I hit a major pr on squat after the comp cycle.
>>35664992
2bh I was grinding really hard. Filmed my 2nd double and grinded the second rep for like 5 seconds.
>>
I'm trying to make a program that allows for squatting, pressing, and pulling 3 days a week, with a 1:2 press to pull ratio, and 2:1 front to back squat. I want to base this off of the material I've read in Juggernaut Training, with a hypertrophy phase of 2 months, 2 months for development of strengths, and 3-4 weeks of peaking or working to a daily max, with exercises becoming more and more specific as time goes on. Can anyone help me? Lifts are 150/80/160 (I neglect benching) at around 70. I front squat 120, push press 80 and OHP 50kg.
>>
>>35665224
>becoming more and more specific
Specific to powerlifting?
>>
>>35665240
Yes. So at the beginning say I'd have a bunch of pull variations like snatch grip, deficit, block, etc then at the end i would work with competition deadlifts
>>
>>35665361
Tbh, it sounds mostly like you know what you're trying to do, other than writing out a whole program for you what do you really need help with? If you neglect benching, stop doing that.
>>
Should I be afraid of stalling?

I am cutting, and have been for a little while, and I benched 62.5kg 5x5, I am afraid I won't be able to get to at least 70kg 5x5 while cutting.

I'm on SS as written.

Am I going to be ok?

Obligatory "don't do that, it's probably not going to help" and "you'd be better off changing programs than trying to integrate those things".
Now that that's out of the way, why do you want to do this? What are your goals with the chains?

Couldn't I add them in on my lifts after each I've deloaded and continue using them while progressing up until the weight and chains together becomes too heavy? Would that be effective?

>>35665388
I guess I just want to have solid set/rep/rest schemes for each block. The other thing I do wish to initially incorporate some body weight movements like push-ups pull-ups jumping, some gymnastics movements, running for endurance and sprints when I would need them appropriately. That's the trickier part. During deload weeks id also do amraps with my body weight.

The important question is, did you recently acquire a gf, or any significant love interests?

women are fucking annoying in this regard. I've made the observation, as well as LOTS of other friends of mine making the same observation, that when you don't have a gf / developing interest, there are NEVER any women around. no options, no women want you, couldn't get a date to save your life etc.

Then, the day you get a gf, all of the sudden its fucking raining women. this happens to me ALL the fucking time, and I know 5 other friends IRL who have the exact same issue.
>>
>>35665858
What I'm hearing is that you want to do speed work.
It doesn't really fit into StrongLifts. You're lifting heavy every session, so you either have to give up a session (which would drop your volume considerably and hinder strength gains) or put the speed work at the end (when you're already fatigued and can't go very quickly anyway).

5/3/1 did really well for me. Work on timing your meals. Try to get a good whack of carbs in right before training. Learn to love caffeine pills/coffee/preworkout. Do not fuck about with your sleep schedule. Eight hours of sleep erry night really helps take the edge off the caloric deficit.

Good luck, lad.

Less volume. Or carb cycling, but you might just want to aim for maintaining strength until your cut is done.

Yeah, well. You make some sense, but there are cases when people really do get too fat. And they will have to cut eventually. So the further they go, the longer and harder it is to come back to a reasonable body composition.
You have to be smart about it and don't let yourself get too fat in the first place.

What I'd rather do is cut down back to about 15% and then keep the weight constant and try to recomp.

>carb cycling
There are lots of ways to do this. The two methods that come to mind immediately are carb backloading (only eat carbs at night after training) and a cyclical ketogenic diet (zero carbs all the time, but with one carb refeed day per week).
Recommended reading:
- "Cheat Mode" by silverhydra (google it, it's just some pages on his website)
- "Carb Cackloading" by John Kiefer (maybe in the dropbox?)
- "Rapid Fat Loss Handbook" by Lyle McDonald
- "Ketogenic Diet" by Lyle McDonald

They're all pretty short, so don't feel too daunted.
Cheat Mode is kind of a TL;DR of Carb Backloading, but the Kiefer book is much more in-depth and very helpful.
The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook is an absolute must, imo. It doesn't focus specifically on carb cycling, but it has important concepts and details.

Oh, and worth noting: don't do keto if you care about performance in the gym. You don't need it to lose weight, so it's not worth it imo.
>>
>>35666608
I usually eat hundreds of grams of carbs before I lift, wouldn't something like keto screw me over as I wouldn't have as much energy to lift?

Alright, I appreciate the help though.

>I usually eat hundreds of grams of carbs before I lift

You don't need that many, trust me.
>>
>>35666706
Yeah, don't worry about it. The backloading works fine, though. I noticed very minimal performance differences doing that (in contrast to keto, which made me useless).

You do realise that losing fat will become neccessary eventually right?

What did Sean Simmons do to make Buda and Norse act like man children?

Whoops. Did I just write Sean's full name? My bad.

Is it ok to take 1 day a week or fortnight out to eat (insert cutting calories) worth of pizza or Chinese

I'm not autistic, I don't care about eating clean.
I just can't fit junk food in and hit my macros within these cutting numbers

Fffkkkk

Buy yourself a cheap pair of Do-Win heeled shoes and you'll find your form improves greatly.
The green shoes btw, you'll know em when you see em.

As for form, it's far from perfect, but as expected from a novice. I'd recommend stretching hamstrings before squats to lower the risk of injury.

Not a static stretch, a dynamic stretch.

If you're asking this question I can only assume you're a 155 muh abs fag, is this correct?
>>
>>35666629

Do you mind sharing your modifications?
>>
>>35667063
I wish. From 58kg to 80kg in 1 year and I'm dyel and fat
>>
>>35667019
yeah but if you need to do that you'll never make it
>>
>>35667071
Well yeah, obviously you're allowed to have some fucking pizza, but what are your goals? Why are they your goals?
>>
>>35667099
>>35667094
I'm a retard I forgot to actually include the question.
I meant to ask whether or not not hitting macros is much of a deal if it's 1 day out a week? I know that doesn't sound a lot, but it adds up I guess?
>>
>>35667114
Sure, but it might make more sense to think about weekly calorie intake than daily anyway
>>
are the gyms busier today because mlk? I don't really want to go but I haven't been in weeks. Don't think this is good for my lifts
>>
>>35667152
I see, thanks for the heads up.
>>
Is there any way I could have a genetic inclination for upper-body rather than lower-body strength?

First time squatting I got the bar for about 3 reps (srs), could barely bench the bar for like 1. Few months later on SS I was benching 100KG paused for sets, while squatting 80KG and Deadlifting 110KG.

What is wrong with me my proportions are normal, I just tend to have a way easier time building upper-body muscle and strength than lower
>>
>>35666481
Or eat at maintenance on training days, keep volume high and carry on.

I've put 40KG on my total before at an intermediate level while losing about 8LBS of fat
>>
>>35667224
Sorry how? HOW DO U DO THIS
>>
>>35667240
He literally told you how.
>>
>>35667240
Eat around maintenance on lifting days and get your deficit from rest days.
>>
>>35667251
What about non training days??
>>
>>35666880
he retarded don't bother

>>
>>35667240
It's purely a popular myth that you can't get stronger on a deficit. How is it any different to people gaining massive strength while barely gaining any bodyweight? Most strength gains are from neural factors- make sure you get enough protein to let your muscles recover and you're fine.

>>35667265
I train heavy Monday and Wednesday, so if I were to cut I'd eat at maintenance on those days, and at a 700 calorie deficit for the rest.

Stay safe joe
