    what’s up boys, just got my account verified but I’ve been lurking for awhile. Started a new program (12 week) Monday so figured I’d throw up interesting stuff here (probably just heavier lifts and overall discussion of my progress).

    I’m a lifetime natty (still working out the logistics of first cycle/cutting weight before I start). I normally am walk around weight at 220/225, but the last three months with finals and graduating college I let myself go and am a fatass butterball . 5’11 245 and slowly cutting down to 210-215. Best lifts (gym not meet) are 385 tng bench, 475 squat and 555 deadlift.

    Feel free to ask any questions or just shoot the shit, I’ll be here ✊✊

    In the gym right now and starting the night off with a pretty easy single (1rm is probably higher than my best right now since I’m up 20 pounds.)

    365 for a tng single before the volume work starts. (Will figure out how to post vid up when I get home)

    Also the pr lifts were all done at 215 after an 8 week peaking program.

    I've been playing around with an RPE 8ish single before volume work off and on over the past few months. Still not sure how I feel about it as it tends to throw off judging my volume weight for the day.

    I don’t do it before every workout I usually save them for once or twice a week, mainly because from personal experience if I don’t lift heavy for more than 2-3 weeks, the transition back into heavier lifts is awkward for me.

    I have the exact same problem. I need to lift heavy on each of the main lifts at least once a week, and if I want too long I feel like the technique suffers too much.
