How are you going with your lifts? Gaining weight?

I'm cutting down for the Australian summer over here. Lost a bit over 8lbs and no loss in strength so far. Pretty happy. That said, its probably because I'm still chowing down 280g of protein a day.

its been alright, gained 25 lbs since last november, exactly a year since i started going to the gym.. from 145 to 170... cant expect the same for next november but even 180-85 wouldnt be bad..

280 g of protein... damn you people eat a lot of food... if it isnt for protein shakes i wouldnt get past 100g.. anyway what do you eat?

Trust me, its not like I enjoy eating it.
The food is so dense with protein, its not actually that enjoyable (well at least what I just ate). I just want to get cut up to look good for the beach.

I just finished up breakfast. 3 full eggs, 3 egg whites, 85g can of tuna, 2 low fat slices of cheese, and low fat cottage cheese. Basically an omelette with cottage cheese on top. That's about 65g of protein.
Usually about 2 hours after, I'll grab a shake with another 30-35g of protein. So I already have about 100g of protein before 10:30 - 11:00am.
I'll most definitely have another shake by the end of the day, and I always get at least 60-70g of protein for dinner with a steak or chicken breasts.

Breakfast was a bitch to eat today... Gonna go with oats and whey protein tomorrow.

I'm trying to get down to 193lbs or there abouts. Might be a bit of an excessive cut for a 6'3 guy, but we'll see. Haven't been that light in a long while.

At first you're insulted, then you're like "**** yeah".


Completely unrelated, I'm going to need an MRI on my shoulders soon, that ultimate diet 2.0 had so much volume for my shoulders that I probably damaged them since they ache pretty much 24/7 now. The left never hurt before, now I wake up with what feels like a sore left shoulder pretty much every morning. But, at least they look 3-D as hell now lol

damn never payed attention to this thread before. Glad to see there is other people that powerlift instead of all the ''bodybuilding'' routines you see in the gym day in and day out.

For my 1 rep maxes ive maxed out at:

150lbs standing over head press
240lbs for bench press
350lbs squat (did 315lbs for 5 reps though it was a huge milestone lol)
455lbs deadlift

My weight was 152lbs and im about 5'9"

Now ive stopped doing weights for about a year or so because i mainly focus on boxing training. Im gonna start back doing squats and deadlifts. Hopefully i hit 500lbs by the end of next summer

Question... well multiple questions.

How many of you stretch here? Just general whole body?
How about specific problem areas?
Before or after workout? Both?

How many of you have problems with your lower back? How many of you bother to stretch, foam roll and pressure point massage your piriformis and hip flexors?

I went with my brother to the gym again and got damn... I am further reminded of the fact that more muscle does not equal more strength. I was just doing power cleans with 155-175 and deads with 245-285 (felt heavier than it should have so I didn't go for 300 anymore) and he and his friends were going "How'd you do that?" and they all had better physiques than me (or at least bigger).

But anyway, I'm looking to go with my brother every Friday now since he's allowed to bring guests along on the weekends. Finally gonna get my wish for heavier deadlifts, kettlebells, and battle ropes during the week. Feels good.

I do. I usually just stretch out my stiffest parts or the ones that really need loosening up, but not everything. I do them both before and after, but I try to stretch everything or at least those that did the heaviest work that day, depending on what movements I trained. I also usually finish off sessions with back bridges so I guess that's helped me. I don't get to roll them but I do stretch them.

I do some active stretching before the big lifts, nothing special just got to warm up.

After a workout I roll with a PVC pipe and do some lacrosse ball stuff on my feet, chest, piriformis, etc. Then I throw in about 5-10 minutes of mobility stuff. Check out DeFrancos Agile 8 on YouTube, I think he updated it to 11 but I haven't checked that out. Also buy Becoming a Supple Leopard.

Damn... I was thinking it was my piriformis muscle at the back that was causing my lower back discomfort, but I stretched out my hip flexors at the front last night, and wow... I woke up today, a lot more limber, more pain free then I have in a while.

Spent a good 15 minutes just stretching the hip flexors last night, and it hurt like hell, but I stuck through it.

I've been stuck at my current weight and lifts for months now because of financial problems. I'm simply not eating enough.
