    Cool Powerlifting/Strength general?

    Been lifting weights for around a year now (amateur powerlifting for 5 months), just got off a 7 month bulk (~3500-4500 calories a day, dependent on work load). Currently cutting with a 500 calorie deficit and an EC stack (Ephedrine/Caffeine, increases calories burned at rest). Been running ABxABxx for around 3 months now (Did Jim Wendler's 531's for 8 months and SL5x5 for 5 months before that).

    Workout:


    Current stats:
    BW: 198.2 (Subject to change, currently on a cut. Will be able to hit 180-189lbs without dropping strength. Got dem rolls at the moment.)
    Bench: 225lbs x3
    Squat: 300lbs x3
    Deadlift: 345lbs x2

    Didn't see a thread on this in the forums, so I figured it'd be a good place to start and get to know people. Will answer any questions about anything fitness/diet related (I'll try to answer to the best of my ability). Not sure what to expect on a Neopets forum, but yea.

    That's my guiltiest pleasure. I've been caught at least 3 times going until failure in bench without a spotter. Thank god they have decent floor reps at the YMCA I go to.

    Yea, I don't do much outside of free weights. The leg curl and lat pull are machines, but that's about it.

    Nice amount of work you put in here and great for sharing! Can I ask if this is what you do at the gym (A & B Days)? If so, I think you should spread out each muscle for a different day of the week, maybe put 2 muscle groups together for one day. Been doing research for a while now and it's got the best outcome over time.

    My workout is in there (Spoiler tags). I separate my muscle groups through push/pull motion groups, also not going for major strength gains right now while I lose weight. Mostly looking for strength maintenance. Going from weightless class to an actual weight class, gonna step it up in competing. At a disadvantage because I'm 6'3", but none the less.

    Haha, I've always had tiny arms. Hitting a 225lb olympic-form clean and jerk and still looking like you don't work out is awesome. Not really, but yea. Working on my arm size for balance, but not a priority. Aiming for practical strength.

    how much do you weigh? im 5'10 193lbs
    6'3", 204.5lbs as of this morning. I used to split into two muscle groups with the 531's, and then I tried a 3 day split with SL5x5's, but neither seemed to get as much progress as a standardized routine. Hitting the same muscle group twice a week just works for my body, especially with the two day rest at the end of the week (Gives me time to work and have fun too). Max bench is up 110lbs, deadlift up 175, squat up 150 (Was 180, but I messed up my knee and took 2 weeks off. Goodbye gains.), and military press up 55lbs - all in 6 months. Granted its mostly beginner gains, its still at my maximum potential for my bodyweight and diet. I'll probably stall in December on my clean bulk.

    As for my back, probably my strongest muscle. Deadlifts, hangcleans, barbell rows, squats, lat pull, pullups - you name it, it's either in my routine or on one of my temp routines that I alternate into.
