    Yeh, have found the right mix of load and volume. Going back to a rounded back helped too, given my torso is half my body basically.

    Lots of thoughts about what to do with Friday sessions.

    I’ll probably do doubles and then a lot of volume work for back, squat singles possibly.

    No, few reasons;

    - I have no interest in benching. Hit 165kg in meet conditions in 2014 and couldn’t get motivation to hit 180kg.

    - My left knee won’t permit the knee travel volume for a squat that matters.

    - I never compete if I know going in I can’t win. Psychologically it doesn’t do it for me.

    I completely understand. Your DL loads are impressive, and the cadence suggested to me that you might be doing meet prep. You are crazy strong, Jester. Whatever your motivation - impressive.

    deadlift only comp? Surely you would have a chance at winning there?

    Thought about it but never actually taken the time to pursue it since moving back here to a Melbourne three years ago. It’s on the list though, will tick it off at some point.

    It will mean a temporary suspension of dat dere perma bulk life though :(

    I just like to deadlift a lot. Seem to have found a way to do that lets me do it heavy and often. Zero squatting is just a cherry on top :D

    Once I can get up to reliable 300kg daily pulls, probably sometime in 6-8 months maybe? Then I’ll start dedicating some energy to squatting again. For now it’s just deadlift, deltas and making my back massive AF.

    Added a LOT of ab work to my routine lately. And recommend anyone doing strength orientated lifting do the same.

    No point trying to brace with happy meal sized muscles .. you want the quarter pounder of abs doing that shit for you...

    Lots of ab work last night and today, struggling to find a way to effectively load it though. Going to try this;
