awesome post. congrats on the PRs. funny how the smallest change in form affects the whole lift. i've noticed that too. even if my feet are ever so slightly farther apart than usual, the set feels weird. i'm the opposite with hand placement -- always felt more comfortable really tight and close in. can't get that tight any more though b/c my elbows get sore.

It's true. I've been off the Sdrol a week and have dropped 5+lb in that time, yet I continue to develop strength-wise. Like I've said, I'm NOT giving up my strength, and I'll fight for it if I have to. If I keep on this track then within the next 2 years I can have a 3x bodyweight deadlift, 2x squat and 1.75x bench. I may even look into competing, something I never thought would be worth it.

Thanks, and thanks for checking out my log! I'm very analytical, so I'm always looking for small tweaks that can get more weight on the bar. Hopefully finding a good squat form I like can move me that much closer to the elusive 405 squat I want.

Bench/upper body day.

Bench press-
45x8
135x5
225x3
275x1
305x1
295x3 PR (video)

Paused speed bench (supersetted with pullups)
225x3
225x3
225x3
225x3
225x3

Wide grip pullups-
BWx5
BWx5
BWx5
BWx5

Upright rows-
95x12
95x12
95x15
95x20

My goal was to get 3x295 today. I got it no problem, and as you'll see in the video, got greedy and tried for a 4th. I know better than that, and I'm annoyed with myself. I always set goals, and stick with them even if I think I can get more. It's the reason I hardly ever fail lifts, and I believe it's a key to my success as of late. Hopefully I won't make this mistake again.

BUT, I got my PR, and the pullups felt great too, so I'll take my successes and drive on.

Thanks, I'm giving it my all.

As for protein, I like eggs, milk, beef, pork, and chicken. I've eaten upwards of 50 eggs in a week, and beef is usually the basis of my dinner.

I haven't bought powder protein in like 6 months, and really have no intention of getting more soon. I DO, however, use creatine, bcaa's, and a little preworkout here and there.

I was just joking on the protein part. You know when you start getting strong and the broz ask you 'what protein you on brah?'
Not joking about the strong part though I hope to follow your footsteps with those weights this year. That's no small feat...

Haha, nice. I was wondering! But seriously, one week I bought 54 eggs and I swear they were gone by the end of the week.

Second session of the day. I've been getting progressively sorer all day, including my shoulders, back, and biceps, so I knew this sessions would be a beast. I set my sites on a PR, instead of trying to worry about a full session.

Deadlift-
135x3
225x3
295x1
345x1
395x1
415x3 PR (video below)
415x2
415x1

You'll see in the video that my form isn't too great. This is what happens when you train your upper body then try to do heavy deadlifting later in the day. BUT, I got my PR. Tomorrow is a new day.

I think one of the reasons that my deadlift has developed so quickly is my bad lifting situation. Since I have to lower the bar slowly with every rep I'm basically doing tons of negatives. I'm sure that has something to do with getting stronger so quickly.

Nice work. Have a lot more in you too. You are over the bar a bit with your hips on the high side. Just a few minor tweaks needed and I bet you'll add 30-40 pounds fast to that PR.

Congrats.
