    Been MIA for a bit. Have had a ton of stuff going on. Did my first meet with an injury which I'm still recovering from. Finally back into somewhat of a routine if you can call it that for now. I found that I'm am completely out of shape and need to focus on conditioning with some higher reps for a while. Dont judge but have been learning/practicing new movements. Lots of sets of 20. Yeah I know y'all will call it crossfit and basically is. Basically on a 4 day split. 3 days PLing high volume. 1 day all compound movements consisting of 4 sets of 20 in circuits. Really focusing on my weaknesses. Core strength. Growing my legs to support bigger weights. Trying to become a better lifter from the ground up. I'm doing another meet sometime in April with @theprodgicalson @Perrin Aybara and possibly a few others. I have big goals for that one. So I gotta get healthy focused and move some fucken weight

    Good to see you're alright. I've been meaning to get in touch with you, but things are still a little hectic for me, too. I'm trying to get in my new place by next month. We'll see. How's the injuries healing?

    Everything has been doing good. I hit a 500 squat not too long ago when testing some core strength. Sumo DLs still pull really bad on the hamstring so I've been sticking super low weight and lots of reps to condition it better this time. @Perrin Aybara

    I haven't done a deadlift since the meet, just been doing beltless high bar squats and incline bench with a little dumbbell work thrown in. Plus a bunch of hypertrophy stuff. What's your weight? I was 211lbs yesterday evening.

    I've been doing some sets of 15-20 on some stuff, too. My endurance sucks right now, haven't done any cardio since the beginning of August.

  5. my conditioning is also lack luster currently. ive just got to figure out a good time to work on that stuff. maybe actually follow through and do weighted carries and such on a weekly basis will help.

    also im in this for the long haul bud! lets all get those wheels bigger!

    I've been doing squat/bench/deadlift/clean and press supersets. 4 sets of 20. Then been working with overhead squats hip thrusts and power cleans as well. All 4 sets of 20. Overhead squats strengthen the core so much. Way more than any BS crunch or something.

    Crunches are a waste of time for our purposes. There's no crunch in the world that could even begin to prepare your core for having 500lbs on your back.

    Those overhead squats have been tearing my core up. I'm not comfortable with them yet to use much weight but I've been doing 4 sets of 20 with 135 and I feel it for days. Clean and press has out some decent size on my upper back and rear delts too

    I really wanted to do some power cleans during this off season, but I know they'd aggravate my injury further.

    Yeah it has been a min since we kicked it an chatted lol. Man things got pretty hectic about a month back. My mom had a stroke an they had to airvac her to a bigger hospital. It left us all shooken up like idk what smh. Good news is, she's makin a full recovery an they swithced her blood pressure medicine which I do believe has helped her a great deal thank goodness!!!!!

    In other news I pr in deadlift tuesday which made me feel good lol. First time I ever picked up 4plates. Idk man I haven't been eatin all that good since the shit with mom happened. Been cruising at 250wk. Last time I tried pullin that was when I was on blast smh. Previous record was 365. This time when I went to 315 for reps it felt light. I thought in my head if I was to ever pull it, right now would be the time lol. Im sure it didnt look pretty but I got it up. Im gonna try it again tuesday an see if I can get someone to record it. That way I can bring it back an have it critiqued. Lol that is the plan anyways. Know watch me not be able to pull it tuesday smh hahahah. Ima give it a try though an see what happens;):cool:

    I'm glad she is recovering well. When stuff like that happens it comes out of nowhere. It's never easy to see a loved one in that position but I'm glad she is recovering well and all will be good.

    As for the PR. A PR is a PR. Always feels good to hit them. My workouts have been all over the board trying to get back into shape. I hit 275 for 25 reps on deadlift tonight lol. That sounds so weird saying

    Stay in touch brother.

    I know whatcha mean man, the conditioning I did at the end of my last cycle is helping me a lot right now. Plan to do some German volume training myself 10x10s and 8x8s gonna be a struggle
