Hey guys, im a big fat quitter lol
I quit the 1 month routine half a week early since i wasnt doing chest and i was having trouble doing the deadlifts from the pins so i did regular deadlifts. Still did legs twice a week. The competition i think is on May 28th or 29th.. I will continue to stretch out regularly and get some glood flow in my chest and shoulders and i will jump back into it if i feel 100% 1 month out.
Im getting better at squats, been getting used to my hip drive more. I still need more strength and flextion in my hips and legs so i can go deeper more comfortably. Im going far below parallel but i know i can go deeper.
I havent been able to beat my last 1rm on Deadlifts though, it made me really frustrated today. I did 385 like 6-8 months ago or so and i weighed much less then i do now... on top of that, i had not done deadlifts for around 2 months prior to that lift. Maybe its my set organization or something because i can DL 365 much easier now for more reps.... and 385 is only 20 fucken lbs heavier!!!!
I learned a lot principles about heavy compound movements. On paper i knew a lot of the benefits but never really appreciated them first hand.
Yesterday i did arms for the first time in over a month and i finally felt like i was getting a good workout with close grip. I also did bench dips. I always wanted to introduce heavy compound movements to my tricep workout, since i need more tricep, but never felt comfortable with close grip.
Hopefully someday ill post videos on my form to get feedback but its pretty embarassing to do so at the gym lol. You always think your form is perfect untill you get some helpful tips that change your entire approach to an exercise.
we're here to help dilated!
