  1. And i think after this meet in December, i will probably be back at my parents house for christmas for around 2 weeks. So my plan will be: Meet, then do a bit of training the following week, maybe heavy singles (but not 1rm), then mix it up for a few weeks with some strongman type stuff at home, nothing crazy, probably twice a week at low weights!
  2. Haha! So true! The program im currently running has a lot of perodization in it, so hopefully see some good results! Training is like a wave i guess, ups and downs. This low is just a bit less than my previous high, just need to wait it out for the next high! The overall picture is the thing that's keeping me going!
  3. Enough of spitting my Dummy out, read the pdf that goes along side my workouts, and taken the 5% deload as described, it means my 1rm has technically gone down, but its not about the 6 week picture, but more about the long run! Come December my numbers should still be the highest they've ever been! Training comes in waves, just on a down period atm! Sorry about the rambling, got over my post crap workout grumpiness and just rambling on now haha! Hope everyones challenges are going well, going to spend as much time as possible this week catching up, been super busy!
  4. Im thinking of swimming twice, nothing strenuous as i'm learning technique, and a light day on weds maybe just a few light sets of each of the big lifts? Then not sure what to do next week? Should i finish off candito's plan? Or start something new from scratch? Thinking of Wendler's 5/3/1?
  5. So today was just terrible in the gym! Failed on my first rep of my first set of both excerices! This started happening on Stronglifts, and then on texas methods when i switched over to that one! Think it's time for a week off to let my body recover! Any tips on this? Should i do a little gentle cardio to keep the blood flowing? Thanks!
  6. Signing up to my meet this week, and i currently weigh in at just shy of 87kg on around 3000cals a day, should i cut down a few 100, maybe 2800 on "off" days, and 3000 on "on" days. Or keep the same and include a little cardio after workouts? Or just go up to closer to 93kg and lift in the higher category? Thanks in advance guys!
  7. Nice work! I'm currently on my first volume week of my current cycle and its killing me! But it must be doing some good! Good luck with the rest of yor challenge!
  8. My current 1RM's stand at around: 180Kg for deadlift, 170kg for squat, and 85kg for bench! And i'll try and get as much footage as possible! I think some gys from Uni will be going too!
  9. Hi! Yeah, this will be my first ever meet! If i were to do it tomorrow, i would probably open with 120/130kg squat, 140kg deadlift, and a 70kg bench, would like to hit a 180kg squat, and 200kg deadlift on the day!
  10. Hey guys! hope all is going well! I've decided to switch programs as i'm signing up for a powerlifting meet in December, and need a program more tailored for hitting big singles come meet day! Good luck to my fellow warriors! Week 3 is going well so far!
  11. Well i went to the gym yesterday and it sucked. A different gym to the one ive been going to for the past two weeks (two campuses at uni) but that shouldnt make a difference to my workouts! I warmed up to my squats, including mobility work all going well so far. Un racked my 145 kg, so only 5 kg more than last week, walked it out as i normally do. And it felt so heavy! I just knew if i attempted a rep it just want coming back up. So i have a 5 minute break, go for my first rep and it just won't come up! Oh press 1rm i managed to get up, and deadlifts again i missed! 3rd attempt at 155kg and the worst attempt yet! 2 weeks ago i got 2 reps, last week i got a solid four, yet yesterday the weight was just STAPLED to the floor on the first rep! Not sure what to do here, i feel like i'm recovering plenty as i'm only working out 3 days per week, and going for TINY swims on the assistance days suggested, but something must be going on! Should i take a de-load week (maybe 3/4 of the weight suggested) then back to normal the week after? Or is it time for a new program? I feel like 6 weeks isn't really long enough to run a serious program? Thanks! I also posted this in my workout program thread, just to get as many opinions as possible! Also, good luck to ALL my fellow warriors!

  13. Sounds like you're doing great on the weight loss! Congrats!!
  14. Haha thanks for the reply! I'd love to get some, and i've seen a fair share of raw IPF lifters use them on youtube, might just bite the bullet and do it! If i don't like them for low bar i can always use them when i cycle in some high bar training i guess!
  15. Physics for me, so going to the gym is a big relief from sat with my head in the books haha! Quick question to everyone, what are your thoughts on low bar squats with oly shoes? Alot of people say nay by referring to the big world record holders using chucks, but these seem to be equipped? I recall seeing a pie chart showing at the last IPF UK nationals around 75% of the raw lifters squatted in heeled shoes, so 75% of people can't be wrong? What are your thoughts and opinions on them for raw squatting lb style? P.s, i'll probably get the power perfect 2.0's as i can get a good deal from a UK stockist! (they're in the middle of the powerlifts and the adipowers) as my budget can't stretch to romaleo/adipower territory! Thanks in advance!!
