Steve,
All of my training is basically legs and back. Your squatting or pulling something from the floor 4 days a week for two hours a time at least. It burns alot of calories so it allows me to eat whatever I want and not gain weight. I found at first that my strength was slipping because I wasn't eating enough.

I dont really diet anyway. I have in the past but now I eat to fuel my workouts and perform. I try to think of myself as an athlete and any aesthetic improvement is great but its a by product of increased performance.

Thanks MAB. Give the power snatches a try sometimes when your warming up to pull. With your strength and age, you would be a great Oly lifter!

Those snatches are looking quick! Flexibility has improved A LOT since you first started posting.

Hehe... I wish I had the same "issue" with bodyweight. With the high frequency I'm having a hard time keeping weight down. I don't eat a whole lot or bad, but if I don't watch it I shoot up 5-10lbs within a couple of days.

Great stuff, Mike as always. You are definitly getting wicked good. You already were wicked strong.

I've noticed the same thing about weight/eating since going to 3 times a week squatting and adding in some quick lifts each day too. I normally gain weight unless I am sort of carfeful about what I eat, but the last two weeks I've lost some weight and haven't paid any attention to what I'm eating other than to keep it clean and not be a pig.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96

Thanks guys and I am having a blast learning a new way to lift! Its a godsend for me. I stay right at the 105 mark without having to do anything diet wise.
Straight powerlifting is a whole other ball game for me. I gained over thirty pounds on a squat, bench, and dl day over the course of two years. I started with a 1155 total at 227 and two years later at 1525 I was 258. Thats why I tell people that if they want to gain muscular weight then powerlifting is perfect. Concentrate on increasing your total and just eat.

I'm actually in the middle of trying to learn how to do a full clean and how to jerk the bar. Once I learn the form a little better I may try them after deadlifts, I'm just afraid it may take power away from deadlifts if I do them first.

They wont. They are a great way to warmup for pulls. You have to apply much more force to the lighter weights to get the bar to your shoulders. It really primes you to move heavy weight. Ever notice how if you work up in weight after a dynamic effort squat or bench, the weights feel easier? Gillingham does cleans first in his workouts and it sure doesn't hurt him. Try them some time.
